Life sometimes feels crazy at my house! Cant you tell....yes!!!! the kids were driving mommy nuts so it was time for the kids to chill out with auntie and get some craziness out. It went well and they even helped clean up..... in my dreams. HAhAh well actually Kai (6) helped with some of my room. It looks like we picked up some of the pig sty. Life is good. Even though it doesn't go our way something right always works out. These beautiful pics are a testimony to that!

Talon could not be more KISSABLE

When Chemo Attacks, Part 5!!!

Well, all you faithful bloggers. Sorry that we have not been very good at keeping you all posted. Alena has been very busy with her sister Jenny moving into the Kesti home with her family. Alena has been a great asset in cleaning and preparing the house with her mom and dad. So this full house is a whole new excitement for everyone. Jenny and her husband B are staying in Bill and Ruth Ann's house until the additions to Grandma's house are done. That is where they will be living.
Onward we go!! Alena has now finished 5 chemo treatments, which leaves only 1 left!!!! Hooray!!! There is a light at the end of the tunnel!!! No one can be more excited about this than Alena. This treatment has been very tough, leaving her body feeling weak and sick. Usually her sickness and nausea leaves after a couple of days, but her body still feels very upset since the treatment of chemo. She is still a trooper, going to activities and spending time with her family. Thank you for your prayers of faith and healing. I know they have been answered in Alena's recovery process. Please continue. Our gratitude is eternal. Alena is at this moment resting, even though it is her least favorite thing to do. Thank you and we love you!!

I went over to my Friend Sarah's to garden and chit-chat. We had a lovely time and I got to play in the dirt!

Life is Good

I really became disconnected this time. Before chemo and after I haven't really shared what I have been doing or how I have been feeling, but I am doing well now. I had the opportunity to go to Monterey and Yosemite this past weekend with my sisters family. I really had a good time surrounding myself in God's beauty.
My sister Jenny and her family moved into our house as they await for their house to be built, so life has been adventurous and I have had a lot of time to help them out. I take it a day at a time and make sure that I loved everyday. I love thanking Heavenly Father everyday for a wonderful day. That is one of my favorite things to do.
I have my 5th CHEMO on Wednesday! I can not believe how time has just flown by. I have really enjoyed my summer. It's been a little different then I thought summer would have been but I have really enjoyed spending it with friends and family and finding out so much about my self. Thank you all for always sending love my way.
