You absolutely should be counting the days! That makes it so much more fun! I can't remember - are you doing a countdown chain or calendar? That made it a lot more tangible for my DD. You should make a ticker for in your signature too - that always makes me smile when counting down to a trip. Maroo is an expert if you need help with one - she has at least five or so going right now. Looking forward to hearing details about the sendoff party.

That is a great ideal. I will have to get with Maroo on that. 39 more to go!

The boys will be so excited!!! Your ceiling collapsed OH my!!!

Again Thank you just does seem enough for all you are doing for my family. Thank you already for touching my family.

We thought of you today. We were in your area today. I wanted to go by the mall and had every intention but the day was so long at the hospital and we were all exhausted so we headed into home. Had intended to be in bed early but I am so addicted to these boards and had not had my daily dose. So here I am.

Hopefully we can run into you soon at the mall.

Well I can not believe it. A year of chemo maybe over. We will have scans in about 30 days and then have a meeting with the doc and see where he is at. Hopefully it will be over. When we started chemo we promised Lucas a big party to celebrate. We had never dreamed we would be celebrating Disney style. What a way to end this chapter of our lives.

Yeah! Chemo is over! I can only imagine how happy you all are that this phase of your life is over.

The maps went out yesterday. I had boxes to fit at work. There are three sets of maps. You will be able to tell that one set is different from the others. It is a little older and will not have some of the most recent additions/changes (like no American Idol). I figured you could keep that one for yourself, and give the boys the other two since they are identical.

You all will have to come down to the mall for just a "fun" day. I usually only work one day during the week (most of the time it is Wednesday night) because I work a regular 8-5 job too. But I am usually there on weekends.

I hope you are right about no more chemo! That would be great news! Keep us posted!

Thank you all for celebrating with us. Now we wait the 30 days until his scanned. My 5 year old said the cutest thing this morning. The doctors keep talking about Lucas getting a clean report. My 5 year old said today I sure hope bubby's dirt is all gone from inside. I must of looked very puzzled at him and he said Mom I hope the chemo cleaned all of the dirt out so he will have a "clean report". I had never thought of this way. My boys take everything very literal.

We are so blessed to be planning our trip and not focusing on the next 30 days.

The boys will be so excited! Yesterday as we were leaving the city (the boys love to look at the sky line) Lucas said can we come back to Nashville and just have fun. I said we will be planning that for sure. So maybe we can make a visit with you!!!

A Big ThanK YOU to Cajunfan. The boys received their BIG GIVE today and boy they were excited. They just loved everything!!!! We already had to play the card games and I learned a new game tonight. Thank you so much for including us. My husband and I enjoy our gifts. The Star Wars gift was just perfect.

I am going to include more pictures. Having trouble getting it down. So here is the first one of them holding their gifts.

But thank you again. Oh the maps were wonderful. It really helped in planning when you can see everything on the map.
