These are our new baby calves born this month so far.  Aren't they adorable!  So cute and fun to watch.  We have four born now and three more on the way in the next few weeks.  We've had a warm dry month which is helpful for the little guys.
My Dad is doing good he is getting his strength back after having brain surgery to remove a tumor.  He has Anaplastic astrocytoma (grade III) brain cancer.  He will start treatment next month which will include chemo and radiation.  He is being so brave and strong through it all.  It's been hard for the family to deal with this my Dad has never been sick and hasn't ever been on medication until now.  He's the most wonderful and loving man and best father anyone could ask for. 
My father-in-law had surgery last week to open his arotic valve.  The surgery went well and now he is on a waiting list for minimal evasive valve replacement.  The doctor said it will probably be the first of the year before they can do that.  In the meantime he will probably have to have the balloon surgery again to open the valve.  He is doing well. 
I still haven't been able to get back to my crafting but I plan to in the next few days.  I haven't been feeling the best the last few days, partly flu and partly exhaustion.  I hope to be sharing pictures of some sweet new dollies soon.  Hugs to you all!

I've been thinking about you and your family. Keeping you all in my prayers. I know that this must be a scary time for you.
My closest friend's son(29 years old) also has brain cancer and has been battling it since last September. They think that he had it for 5 years or so before it was discovered. He is in ICU right an infection in his lungs, has low blood count, and low bleed pressure.

Take care and I hope the you get feeling better soon. Sending hugs your way.

The baby cows are so cute!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. I know how scary this is having gone through my father having a brain tumor (a different kind). Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Much love,
