Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone! Annie and the girls rang in the new year at the neighbors (sorry, no pictures), and Jeff was at work. We all went to church this morning and then ate lunch with some friends from church. Kerstin started to feel ill during lunch, so Annie took her home before she got sick in the restaurant. McKinsey and Jeff got a ride home from the Scheele's. Kerstin was feeling better by late afternoon and decided she needed to go shopping with some money she found in one of her other purses. She has had her eye on a Barbie laptop computer at Radio Shack. The computer was on sale, but Kerstin didn't have quite enough for it. It was the last one in the store and it's hard to say no for an educational toy, so Jeff spotted her the rest.

This is probably the last public socializing for Kerstin for a while because her counts should be dropping from her last cycle of chemo last week. She will go in tomorrow to get her counts checked and we'll go from there.

We hope everyone had a safe new year's eve, and you all will have a blessed new year!

Kerstin,
I'm not sure if it's quite fair that you have a computer already and I still have to share with Jay and the boys. Of course, if I got a Barbie computer, I bet the boys wouldn't want to be seen carrying it around. Did you pick that one so your dad wouldn't be stealing it all the time. I hope your counts go down and come back up quickly so you can get back to all your fun stuff.

Hi Leaf's,
Sorry you did not hear from us today! Abby decided to add a little excitement do the day by breaking out in little bruises all over her chest, so we got to go back to Omaha for counts after her appointment with Dr Napalitano! YUCK! Luckily all was fine, and we are back in Kansas!
Hope you are feeling better Kerstin! We sure do miss you all! You keep those counts up, and have fun with the new Barbie computer! Wish I would find some extra money in one of my purses!
Love,
Kristi and Abby Bridgewater

Kerstin, You'll have to show me that trick of finding extra money in other purses! :) Sending you wishes from Florida for a quick bounce-back on those counts [want you feeling great soon!] and a new year filled with all the fun you can stand! Share a big, giggly hug for the new year with McKinsey and your mom & dad from us RooneyToons - xoxoxoxo

Hi Kerstin!
I'm glad that you had a fun Christmas and New Year. It's always a nice suprise to find shopping money too! I hope you keep feeling better and your counts go up soon so you can be ready for more fun and friends in no time again. We're still praying for you.:)
Love,
Emilie
