Fun thing....Saylor in Christening Gown that her mama was blessed in July 1986. It was given to us by our dear Inga who brought it over from Sweden when she immigrated approximately 50 years ago. Very special to us. Also Saylor wore the baby ring that Suzi and all siblings wore that was mine at birth in 1952.
For those of you who didn't know Norm battled and beat cancer in the year 2000. It was a head and neck tissue mid-line granuloma (T-cell) lymphoma. Chances of beating it at the time were very slim.
Now he is having symptoms that indicate something going on in the central nervous system.
We have a very bright neurologist working on this with endless tests as she believes the lymphoma has comeback but we haven't been able to locate it yet, so will be repeating tests every 3 months until we find the differential.
It was originally very difficult to find perhaps as much as five years after the fist symptoms, It's extremely slow growing and extremely difficult to kill. Head and neck tissue complicates the picture even more and when lymphoma comes back, it can show up anywhere.
I get a partial color weave is all with a lighter shade of blonde, a darker shade of blonde and my own grey in between like a third color. My aim is to look a little more blonde and a little less grey. For my kids who have an opinion, I got 3 inches off the bottom a a little shaping done.
I tried to make this bigger but it only gets super blurry.
Can't have that!
These are the Davis boys. Back in the day...we all lived in Coeur d'Alene, and Cathy (their mom) and I were going through the child bearing years together...We ended up with 6 boys 1 girl, Cathy and Jim had 10 boys, and great GREAT kids they are!
One summer several families here took in Asian kids for a summer program, and one of the girls that stayed with a mutual friend used to ask to go to "10 boy house".
Cory's family: Kaylynn and Cory, Owen and Emily standing, and Eliza in Cory's arms.
We went to Phoenix in February, to see Cory's family, been close to two years. Way to long! Emily was being baptized ~~ It's great to be eight! Poppy teaches all the grandkids to make the peace sign and say "Peace Baby"! Very fun trip. So glad we could go!
Greyson had a birthday party at JAMS with Milo and a Parker boy. Sorry, can't remember his first name. They each had a costume and party favors and all the frozen yogurt they could eat!! Was so much fun!
Of course Nana and Poppy were there along with mom and dad and Bill Parker, Sage, Gabe, Harley and Uncle Kelly.
married 1971, we've lived in Coeur d'Alene since, it's so beautiful here. Nice place for a family...but the winters sure are long! The novelty of having deer in our yard daily has worn thin as they eat all the flowers we try to grow.
