Flash-forward a few months since my last post…. we’ve celebrated all of our fall birthdays, progressed to almost half way through grades 3 and 1, and celebrated another wonderful Christmas! We were able to escape for a few nights before the big day to sunny Florida, thanks to my father-in-law’s Timeshare perk of some free nights at Orange Lake Resort, had lots of fun watching the kids enjoy the excitement of Christmas Eve with their cousin Levi, and Grampy was able to make the trip to Guelph this year to join in on all the fun.
It’s been a busy, eventful and interesting year here at BJAMS – some difficult times and some wonderful times – my dad’s been progressing through his chemo – with the combination of his strength, fighting ability and positive attitude, the chemo has reduced the tumor burden to 1%! The doctor couldn’t be happier – the projected end-date of chemo is set for May 2017, just in time for the nice weather to return!
And we said an “almost” goodbye to the cottage which was listed this year, but not yet sold.
We had many fun family adventures. Annika and Selena are growing up into beautiful, kind, caring and genuinely loving girls – Selena auditioned and joined the competitive dance team at Emotion Dance, and Annika was asked to perform a Solo this year! The real dance fun begins in the spring, when all of their hard work pays off – So stay tuned for many updates, pics and videos of our little stars on stage!
My New Year’s resolution this year will include updating my blog more often, so stay tuned for more updates of what BJAMS is up to!
Wishing all of my loved ones Health, Happiness, Love and Fun in the New Year!
