The Journal

         Here we are with a Christmas journal entry!  Only 7 more months until Christmas!!  As I go about, cleaning, organizing, searching...I keep hoping, maybe, maybe I'll find a secret letter from Kimmy...but, I suspect, even Kim did not think it would go as fast as it did - 55 days from diagnosed to going to Heaven...

     December 25th 2003

            Merry Christmas!  Santa surprised us again - there were footprints by the fireplace from him and his reindeer!  The kids enjoyed opening their Kett car (Cody), a new princess bike (Autie) and baby toys galore (Antonio)!
           Grandma surprised us with a holiday visit this year so the children enjoyed her surprises as well.   We later walked to the park in our jammies (weather was 70 degrees) and watched the kids enjoy their new "rides".
           Then we went to the William's home to celebrate with them and their families (Angie, Mark, Andrea, Mario, Janene, Brad, Kristie, Ross, Kim and Rashon and kids!).  In the evening, we stopped by our friends, Vito and Rose's home to enjoy some holiday desserts and coffee.  A very special first Christmas or our little Antonio.

          These families have meant so much to us over the years, after we came her from Pennsylvania, knowing no one...Kim enjoyed our precious time with them and appreciated them all!

            And today, we spent our time enjoying their company again - having breakfast with Rose and Vito and Vito Jr, then over to Janene and Brad's for a BBQ with Andrea, Kim and Rashon and all of their kids - helping to keep us feeling a part of something special...
                                Janene gives Tonio pointers on the fine art of diving!  Who would have thought?  Just a couple months ago, Tonio couldn't even swim and now he's going off a diving board!!
                Janene and Brad got a new puppy!  A golden retriever named "Macie" - Brendon help her to the stairs as Autumn enjoys the show!
                                          Autumn, Lexy and Breanna perform water ballet!

             A great start to summer!!!  We are blessed!
