Not such a happy start to 2008!

First, let me start by telling you all that we got Madelyn's VMA/HVA results on Friday and everything is still normal, we are scheduled for a check up at the clinic on 1/27.

Now let me tell you another one of the hardest posts I've had to type. My family and I while here in Pennsylvania for my Great Aunt Jessie's funeral received word yesterday that my father has died. It was completely unexpected and we are trying to cope. We are heading back to SC tomorrow to begin planning another funeral, I feel this one will be much tougher. Aunt Jessie was a 95 year old woman who led a full, happy life, while my Dad was 51 and did not.

We do not have any of the logistics of the funeral planned out yet, but hopefully when we do, Rick can post if for you all.

Please keep my family in your prayers through this most difficult time.

Thank you,

Happy New Year!

Wanted to quickly post and tell ya'll we are all doing fine. My great aunt passed away last week, so Maddy, my mom and I are leaving this am for Pennsylvania for the funeral.

Maddy is doing very well. She has been a sick w/a cold, but other than that she is great. Growing and CLIMBING on everything. We had her ears pierced last week and she looks adorable.

Nana bought her a potty chair for Christmas. We have been experimenting with it. She has gone stinky in it 3 times in the last 3 days. I know...TMI, but I am so proud of her. We are still waiting on her VMA/HVA results from Thursday, but when we get them, we will post it.

Anyway, we love you all and wish a happy, healthy 2008 for everyone.

Love The Bells
