Springtime is here!

Wow! Yesterday we spent most of the day outside. We sure got a treat! We saw four of these beautiful painted bunting (the one with the red) birds and two indigo buntings at one time! They must really love our birdseed, because they came back for seconds! You guys may see these beauties all the time, but we don't... so we are just thrilled! We also got to see several kinds of hummingbirds and other beautiful birds enjoying our backyard. Then, to top it off, we had six deer at our feeder, WHILE WE WERE OUTSIDE! That's a first for us! It was hard for me to be quiet, but I did a great job. Papa and Nana even joined us and got to see our pretty birds and deer too!

Oh yeah about my spine. I had to have x-rays the other day of course (which was terrible) BUT the great news is that my spine has NOT gotten an worse!!! YAY! So I don't have to go back for 6 months!! We are just as happy as can be about this news!!!! Happy Monday to all!

This and that

This is an older picture of my dad and me. We're getting a nice fire going for mom (she LOVES fires!). Unfortunately mom's camera is broken, that's why there haven't been any new pictures lately.

Last week we went to see my eye surgeon, Dr. Fry. She was so thrilled at how great my eye looks! She said that she didn't want to do the stretching surgery for a couple of months. So we're going to keep moving forward with Mr. Wenske until then. We go to see him in a couple of weeks.

Today we're headed to my new scoliosis doctor, Dr. Kent Reinker. Dr. Stanley, my previous doc, is no longer on our insurance plan. So we'll see how things go today.

In the meantime... you MUST check out my brother's blog. He drew a family portrait and it is just fantastic! Please take a look! I hope that someday I am able to draw as well as he can! He is awesome!!!
