Renstrom Visit




Leigh Anna is "retriving" a fragment specimen of Papa's kidney stone to be taken to his doctor for analysis! Mama Ward had her mother's nurses pin. Susan took it home and is going to give it to Leigh Anna when she graduates from nursing school next year! That would be Leigh Anna's great grandmother!

Merry Christmas 2009

We had Christmas on Friday night before David's family went to Greensboro, NC on Saturday to be with Emily's family (5 inches of snow and cousins were waiting on the boys - they have had a ball.)


Both John David and Hudson love little men, horses, soldiers, etc.



They love books!




Today, Christmas Day, Mama Ward made Grandma Franks' rolls and waldoff salad.

Thank you, Lord

Things were "clear as a (Christmas) bell" and Dr. Z was able to laser that stone! Papa is home and resting well!

Pray for Dr. Z and Papa today

Papa will be having surgery to remove (laser) a large kidney stone. Last Wed., they went in and were not able to blast it -Too much debris and not clear enough. We are headed to the hospital this morning and his surgery starts at 8:30 Central time. Thank you for your prayers.

JDP is 3 and he knows the true meaning of Christmas!

The boys along with David spent the night with us last night because Emily had a Youth Girls Spend the Night Party at their house. John David loves to play with this manger scene and it is very special to me because we have had it since David was JDP's age. Today after they left, this is the way I found it. John David knows the TRUE meaning of Christmas, doesn't he?

Stitches and Pecans

Papa has shelled 60 POUNDS of pecans just this week! Remember Grandaddy Ward doing that and supplying the whole family! Papa even sent some to Mobile so "the sisters" could use them as they do their fruitcakes next week!
Yep, 5 stitches after last night's Basketball game - Seth's first!
