Normal? What's that?

Okay so it's been a long time once again since I have been on here. Sorry. It's been a little busy here lately. With the kids out of school for Christmas and then attempting to try and get into a routine once they went back. It's just been a little out of whack around the Gregory house. The kids have all been pretty good. With the exceptions of the runny noses and occasional coughing her and there.

Mama has started her Chemo. She actually had her second treatment last Wednesday. She's doing pretty good with them. They do make her really tired and weak a few days afterwards. She has 4 more treatments to go then they will start radiation. She will have treatments 5 days a week for 7 weeks. Which isn't that great because it takes her over an hour to get there and then another trip back home but she said she'd do what ever it takes to get better. It's frustrating for me to see her have to go through this and there isn't a thing I can do. I hate to see her sick and tired. And then we went shopping for a new " hair do" on Monday. She has one now that looks good but I'm not use to the short hair just yet. And I know she's not feeling that great about losing her hair either but it's a sign that the chemo is at work. And that's just how we have to look at it. Yes it is an actual sign you can see that cancer has affected her and it is sad to see it but at the same time I have to think that God's grace is sufficient and He will give all the strength and love that we need through this. She will be carried when she can do it on her own and so will I. I am curious to see what her new hair will look like once it comes in. I'm praying that she will not get to sick from the chemo and that this will hurry up and go by quickly. I'm ready to get the test results that say " It's ALL gone!" To be done and over with.

Well I am going to leave you with a few random pictures from Christmas because what is a blog with no pictures:)

Ace getting ready to go to Grandmama's.
Preston lost his first tooth the day after Christmas!
Preston's Santa stash. ( Complete with a letter telling him to look outside for his last present.)

Ace's goodies.

And of course AliPaige's presents.

My brother came to visit for Christmas and this is Me, Kelly, and Trent.

Preston's last present.

This is how he fell asleep in my lap the night before Christmas as I was finishing up some work on the computer.

Our sweet little Christmas Tree. Minus the bow. Had to get my mother in law to fix one up for me.

And Preston's 7th Birthday Party.
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New year. I hope I will be back on here again before the next little munchkin has a birthday.
