Today was a great day. I got to spend Christmas with Addi and Christi. We woke up and let Addi play with her present, then we went to church. When we came back, Christi fixed turkey, stuffing, corn on the cob, green beans, and pumpkin pie. Jo and Bill came over with Tracia and Aunt Bobbie. We all are and had a great time.

Last night, we spent time at Moms and Bill's house. We always do Christmas eve there, at least when I was growing up. Since Christi and I got married, we did Christmas sometimes in Kansas. When Addi was born, we decided that it was important for Addi to wake up at her house for Christmas. That is why we went to Kansas earlier.

Caroline and Mike moved into their new house. It is really nice and they did a great job in picking out stuff.

Tomorrow we are going to go to my dad's for a little while to see Papa and Dad. Then we will head to Lee Bradly's.

I wanted to say a big thank you to the Wiese family for their donation to Addi's Cure. Kristen, their daughter, was an intern for FIG a couple of summers ago. We got to be really good friends, and she comes over when she is in town to say hey, and also does some things for us like watch the dogs, etc. They have an unbelievable family and were very nice in their donation. David Bidwell donated this week as well. He also sent me an article that was really interesting. Bill and Jo also are donating this week. They wanted to see where we were for the year before they donated. I am certain that we will be over $75,000 in 2006! UNBELIEVABLE.

Letters will go out to all that gave in 2006 this week. This will be your receipt for the donation as far as the IRS is concerned. I am so thankful to everyone, and I am hoping people will see the value in making this an annual donation....

On June 1st, 2006, a doctor told me I might not be here for this Christmas. I am here, and feeling great. This is due to God, your prayers and positive thinking, my wife making sure I eat right, and Duke Medical. I want to thank everyone for that. My goal is 5 years, and I am going to make that goal as well....

I am very glad you are still here -never doubted! What I am sad about is that you had a feeling that the cancer may have been back and you didn't say anything. We have to know what you are feeling so we can pray for you. You will make it, you are strong. But if you feel weak let the prayer warriors pray for you and let us know. We don't just read the blog for fun - we love and care about you and your family!!!!!!

You are then notified by email when your fax is complete. Your residency must be of the UK. The best part in using online fax service is that you do not have to install any special software or hardware device to use them. You need to make them sure that you are enough mature to enter in an agreement.

There will be no voice acted version due to the fact that the original voice actors would be way too expensive and a fan version would destroy the immersion.
