    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.

    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.

    Thank you Figmificent for the wonderful I Spy Bags. The boys really like them. After they opened them my 5 year old disappeared and I went to find him and he was sitting on the steps just playing away with his bag. I went back to get my husband to show him (because he looked so cute) and my husband had the other one just playing too. They already have alot of fun with the bags.

    They were wonderful and we truly apprecaite it. You are very talented.

    I know what you mean. My kids got theirs yesterday and just loved them. I have never seen them before but now don't see how I could have gone through our Missouri trip with out them.:scared1:

    I use the 640x480 Large size to get the size of the pictures on my PTR. Hope this helps.:)

    Glad the boys are enjoying them! Good things don't usually happen when children disappear, especially when they're quiet :laughing: Seems like the adults are enjoying these as much as the kids ;) You are most welcome!

    My husband is still enjoying it and my mom came over to watch my boys and of course the boys could not wait to show her all of their goodies and when I went home for lunch and I caught her playing with it.

    Thank you again.

    Thank you so much Princess Caitlin!!! The boys enjoyed their gifts so much. Lucas asked how did you know how to get just the right things. He said she knew to get me by favorite puzzle book. He has just started to get into those word search puzzle books and just loves it. So he was thrilled!!!!

    They were still in the P.J.'s that day. Lucas says it is still summer break and P.J. days are the best. I have to agree.

    I have be meaning to post these pictures but I am just now getting the hang of this picture thing. This was my poor attempt to create a Disney Castle Cake. This was our celebration to begin our official Disney Countdown.

    That IS a great cake -- don't be so hard on yourself.

    It's good to see all the goodies the boys are getting from The Big Give! That is one of my favorite parts of reading the PTRs -- to see all the goodies those ladies send to these kids.

    Have a great weekend! It's warm on this side of Kentucky. I guess we've been spoiled by a cool summer so I won't complain. It IS August afterall :)
