Done and Dusted before Alan's Surgery


Christmas came and went
Very enjoyable with my children and grandchildren



as did New Year's Eve
Great meal, games then prayer, praise and worship



Tree and decorations down early - just the cards now
before Alan's surgery tomorrow
He will be having Basal Cell Carcinoma's removed from his legs followed by Plastic Surgery then 
no walking, standing or driving for 7 days
so wanted  everything back in the loft while he can do it



Wishing you a Happy and Peaceful
New Year with a couple of photographs from this week



and the cards made for birthdays this week

Hopefully will be getting back to posting lots more from last Summer outings

How lovely to have such a big family at Christmas. All best wishes for Alan's surgery - hope everything goes well for him and that he'll be tripping the light fantastic very soon.

Alan will be in my prayers for a safe and successful surgery. Not a really good way to start the new year, but better to have that gone rather than not for sure. I'll be looking forward to more of your summer outings. They'll be especially appreciated in the middle of winter. Nothing but snow and ice here. Take care and sending blessings your way for a very Happy New Year.

Great pictures!!! I did not realize Alan was having surgery. We will be praying for him and looking for the good update. Happy New Year to you two!

Needled Mom said...

It's a great idea to get everything put away while Alan can still help with the lifting. Please know that you will both be in my prayers.

Praying for Alan and you (don't forget to take care of the caretaker) and asking God for a full recovery. Be kind to yourselves - our bodies are made to heal, it just takes time. How smart you were to get the work done before he has his work done! ;)

Happy New Year.

Lorrie said...

You and Alan will be in my prayers over the next days. May surgery go well and healing be swift.

God willing Alan will recover well Barbara and he will enjoy the 7 day rest rather than feel frustrated by it. It sounds like youve had a wonderful festive season,

Will be keeping Alan in my prayers and you as you help him through the next 7 days. We had the exact schedule for our New Year's eve. Food, games and then ended with worship and prayer. It was a very good evening with 24 folks crammed into my house!
