Back from Oz...

or wherever I have been for the last couple of weeks. My sister did get diagnosed with MS and there have been a lot of trips back and forth to Mayo clinic. Tests by one doctor and then tests by a specialists and a lot      of waiting and driving. I am so thankful that we are only a hour away from Mayo because they are so good at what they do. I tried to go with her whenever I could and then when I wasn't with her I was working. Anyway we have one more appointment with a nurse to train her how to do her injections and she has to do the first one there and be watched for awhile to make sure everything is ok. Her attitude is really good and she also has good support from family and friends. 

Now on to the fun things. First of all please forgive me for being so far behind again in my thank yous! First of all I was in the Thanks for giving swap that Wendy hosted way back when...I had the wonderful swap girl herself Amy from Bumble Bee Lane. I have written and thanked Amy for the things that she gave me but I did want to also share with you all what I was so lucky to receive! First of all Amy made me this cutest little apron and in it's pocket were two prairie corn cob dolls. Love it! (Excuse the ugly wall paper..remember I rent!) ICKY!
I also got an awesome snowman, some mittens to hang on my tree, and a perfectly prim ginger!
Thank you so much Amy, you know how much I love everything! Thank you also for the special caring you have shown me!

I was also a part of Amy's and Marie's ornaments swaps. Here is a picture of the cute ornaments I got.
A beautiful burlap stocking from Michelle at Simple Pleasures, A cute angel from Marie  Which was the first thing I put on my new prim tree, a  snowman head to add to my collection from Tammy from A Primitive Place and some darling beeswax boots that did not have a name on them but I love them and thank you to the maker! Would love to know who did them! Thank you all again! It is going to be so great to have nice ornaments on my tree.

Well that is all I have for now! Thank you for all of the good thoughts and prayers for my sister. We all appreciate it so much! I have missed you all and hope to get reading your blogs regularly again!

Hi Cindi--so sorry for your sister's diagnosis. I'm sure the docs at Mayo are the best and I will be sure to keep her in my prayers. Love all the sweet goodies you received--everything is so special!----Jan
