Brie, 19; Emily 17; Katie 15 and Ricky 9

Long time NO WRITE HERE!! OOPS!! Well I have thought about it..does that make it okay? We have had so much going on in our family that I just forget...Anyhoo...Here I am now!!

We have the best praise here in our family this week for those of you that i did not get around to letting know...My SIL Judy got her pathology report back Tuesday.She is clear of CANCER!! YES!! We are all so relieved not to mention how relieved Judy is!! She called me and talked for about 30 minutes..She said that she has not cried during this whole ordeal until the report came back and then she cried...Happy TEARS and out of sheer relief!! Now she has some things ahead of her but no radiation or chemo therapy. She is going to have to take that chemo pill but that will be nothing compared to what she might have had to go through. We are all so happy here in our family this week....

Our youngest grandson, Garrett lost both of us two upper teeth so he is lookin' pretty cute right now. I don't think they will be out long because you can already see the new ones coming in. He is such a cutie. One day he is going to be a heart breaker for sure!!

I also have some other good pictures of grandkids to share with you...I am a proud here goes:

This is our oldest grand, Brie, she is going to be 20 in May!!

Madison age 10 in her first ball game Tuesday night!!

This is Jenna, Madison and Garrett's half sister holding her
baby boy Gage. She lives in Maine so we
never get to see her!!

Well now you have been bored with the Flip Flop's Grands...that is the way it goes when you stop by here. Family is the most important thing in my life...These kids are who we will be leaving behind once God wants us to go home with HIM!! What a legacy!! We have wonderful grands with so many different talents and abilities that God has given to each and every one of them..from 20-8...what a family!!

Thought for the day: "Having a place to go is a HOME; Having someone to love is a FAMILY!!"

What wonderful photos of all the "grands" and grand they all sound. Yes, you are blessed. It will be a fabulous legacy.

I am rejoicing at the clear report for your SIL. God is good! I can imagine the tears of relief.

So glad everything is good with Judy. Your grands are adorable all of them (not a lemon in the bunch!) Life has been rather hectic since coming home. (What else is new!) Miss you.

Hi Sandy, I am thrilled to hear that your SIL is free from cancer. What a mercy from God! We have been praying for her and concerned. Does she have to take the chemo pill... just for good measure I guess. I hope she doesn't get sick from it and that her recovery is going smoothly with no pain. Your grandchildren are delightful! I'm glad for your joy. You take care....we are off to visit our daughter and our precious only two little grandsons.
