It has been way longer than I intended to have been absent from writing. But life gets in the way, right? Or more accurately... there are more important things!
So, a brief run down....
My trip to Arizona went well. I missed Cory and the girls... they missed me! I was so happy to be able to take part in my cousins beautiful day.... and I admit, I was diggin' the 80 degree temps!
Here are a few pictures from the big day!
It's hard to see in this picture (below)...
but I am standing right smack in the middle.
You can see my ghostly white legs! Haha!
There were 26 in the wedding party.
Yes, you read that right.. TWENTY SIX!
It was a bit chaotic during the rehearsal...
but I think it all panned out nicely!
In the next pic:
I am on the far right, holding the baby.
I roomed with the girl beside me, who brought her 5 month old...
So I felt right at home and liked having the opportunity
to snuggle her while everyone else danced and sang karaoke!
(not my forte!)
(And I must say... I am the only one NOT wearing lipstick! Only chapstick for me! Haha!)
I was definitely glad to get home to my own sweeties though!
And I got a great big Welcome!
Four days was a long time to be away!
I don't foresee that happening again anytime soon!
**Update on Cory's Dad**
To make a long story short, they did the 2nd biopsy (needle this time) on his lung on Feb. 24th. His lung partially collapsed and he had air in his chest cavity. They eventually got that all taken care of and he is now back home and resting. HOWEVER, the doctors still can't figure out what is on his lung. They are calling it "cancer" since he's had cancer before.... but they don't truly know. They say it's "guilty until proven innocent"... so we believe they will be scheduling surgery to remove whatever-it-is in the next couple months or so. I know that I don't know all of you out there... but THANK YOU to those of you who have commented to let me know that you pray for Gene. It truly means the world to our family.
