Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everybody!  I don’t really remember where I left off last entry…so I will wing it.  Last Thursday my friend Renee stopped over to introduce her new baby Nolan to my mom.  We had such a nice visit & he is such an adorable baby boy!  Amy also stopped by for her weekly visit along with our friend/helper Catey.  We basically had visitors the entire day, so mama Jules was in social heaven!

Friday was New Years Eve.  My friend Susan & I decided to hang out and do something low-key together.  Susan is my friend that is from EP but now lives in Chile.  She didn’t have to go back until Sunday….so I was able to see her twice!  She invited me over to her parents house & we had an amazing dinner & then hung out.  Susan was always an amazing cook (along with her mom) when I was growing up, so I knew that dinner would be great!  Thank you for having me over Roberts!!  I was home by 10:30 since the roads were a little slick.  We were getting a pretty big chunk of ice on the roads & I didn’t want to get stuck.  I was able to ring in the new year with my parents & then finish my night off downstairs.  Love it!

Saturday & Sunday we spent at home.  We took the tree down & tried to get the house back in order.  We didn’t mind being inside since the weekend went by pretty quickly.

Today my mom & I went in for her blood draw appointment.  They weren’t able to get any blood from her veins again, so we had to resort to a finger prick.  The finger prick worked..thank goodness!  We had the sweetest little lady from Russia. She was bound and determined to get what she needed.  She was so patient & spent a lot of time with us.  I just love when we get to work with kind and sweet people.  It really makes the experience a lot better.

That is about all for now.  On a side note, Jenna has her first Swarm Game this Saturday.  I will be taking mama Jules & Daddy Rog.  I heard that the games are really fun & we are looking forward to it!  If you are interested in attending a game, the Swarm has set up a special link for our family to raise money for the ALS Association.


Use the promotion code: eagle wings

A portion of the ticket cost will go to the ALS association.  We are really excited for this fundraising opportunity!  Thank you Swarm!

Prayer for Julie: Pray for continued strength & energy.  Lets keep those motor neurons firing!
