A Busy Month

April is half over and I feel like time is just flying by.  My niece turned twelve this month and I helped her and her mother with the party planning and set up.  A few of her friends were coming for a sleepover and then the next morning they were going to spend the day at Sea World.  We made chocolate mustaches, dipped marshmallows, candy trays, cupcakes which I forgot to take a photo of.

 We celebrated Easter and my Nephew's 25th birthday (is this really possible)?? Had lots of family over and enjoyed a ham dinner with an egg hunt for all the kids.
This month our son began drivers school and got his permit.  In a few days he starts the driving part.  I am NOT ready for this.  Time has really flown by.  I have been busy with our biggest fund raising event for the School Band.  It's a dinner auction and this year we are doing a Mardi Gras theme.  I have written over 200 letters and thank you letters and kept track of all the donations we have received.  This month has been a whirlwind of fun and exciting times.

Prayers

Prayers are needed as tomorrow my sister in law will undergo a double mastectomy.  Cancer spots were found in her breast a few months ago and the doctors thought they got them all through a biopsy.  When she went back in for more testing they found several spots in each breast and now she is undergoing surgery.  Breast cancer does run in her family and so this is why the decision was made to undergo the double mastectomy.  I can not even imagine what this must feel like for someone to go through but my heart, prayers and thoughts go out to her and her family.
