Looky looky, it’s been another two weeks since most of you have heard anything from us…things are terrific in Columbus.  Amy and I got the chance to spend another Christmas and New Year with our girls!  Who can say that is anything but terrific?  We were fortunate enough to spend a couple of days in Jackson with Amy’s parents and Uncle Scott and Aunt Kim and the kids before Christmas.  And we got back in time to partake in the Christmas Eve church service in Columbus with Grandma and Grandpa Elske and Uncle Lyle and Aunt Jenny and the girls.  It was a holiday season unmatched by any other.

We had a small party for Charlotte on Thursday given to her by the Make-A-Wish foundation.  It was Charlotte’s Make-A-Wish unveiling party where we learned all of the details of our trip to Florida and the awesome Give Kids the World resort.  We will be spending a few days at DisneyWorld, Universal Studios and SeaWorld.  And if things go Daddy’s way, we will also make a trip to GatorLand!!!!  But something tells me that we won’t have enough time for that.  We will have 10 days in the [hopefully] warm Florida weather later this month!  We will also be joined by Grandma and Grandpa Elske and Wagenknecht and Uncle Scott’s and Uncle Lyle’s families so we will have a great old time with the family!  We are all so excited!!

We have recently learned that Charlotte’s Great Uncle Dean has been diagnosed with leukemia.  He is not only a close relative of mine, he is my godfather.  And he was instrumental in the success that was the Clyman Lions “Charlotte’s Web of Hope” fundraiser in December of 2010.  He now has several rounds of tough chemotherapy and probably a stem cell transplant in his future.  We ask that you add him to your prayer list.

Charlotte goes in for her clinic appointment on Tuesday the 10th, we hope her numbers reflect how well she has been acting.  We hope the new year brings happiness, health and joy to all of you.

  1. What a wonderful Christmas! No gift could have been more precious than spending the holidays with your girls. Hope your trip to Florida is fantastic!! So sorry to hear about Dean. He is in our prayers!

  2. Great photo of the family–and Peanut looks very protective of Miss Molly! Hugs to Uncle Dean as he starts this process.

  3. Good to hear what a Great Holiday you had! I can’t believe how much Molly has grown up! Can’t wait to meet her in person! Safe flights and we’ll try and get the weather to cooperate!
