Happy Father's Day (a little early)

I know it is early, but if I don't do this now, it will not happen.  We are gaining on the unpacking and settling in.  The guys got the porch floor back down, the grass is growing, the garden is looking lovely... now, if I could just move a little faster between the houses and get DONE with all these boxes.  They are so over rated!!  With it being father's day weekend, I am going to take a break from that work and do some more.  We are having our first family gathering since we moved in.  I'm hoping that dad will feel up to eating, as he has his first treatment tomorrow and we have no clue what to expect. 

For my prayer warriors, please keep him in your prayers.  The chemo didn't do what we had hoped and prayed it would do.  As far as we know the cancer has not spread but the spot they were concerned with has grown and so he has opted for this new antibody treatment.  It is so hard to watch him go through all of this and know how uncomfortable he is.  Hopefully the first dose won't be too bad and he will be able to enjoy the day a little bit.  Just in case, I'm going to make him a batch of peanut butter fudge.  That will make him feel much better.  :)  I hope I remember to take pictures.  It seems I always have a spoon or a bowl in my hand and then we get no pictures.  They are so important, especially now. 

I know that the scrapped photos won't give you a great look, but I'm sharing a bit of the new place with all of you.  The quick page was created by Jemima using my Wishing for Summer kit.  It was free last month for the QP challenge and there are so many adorable things created with it.  I chose this one because it allowed me to use multiple photos.  The lake is not ours, but we are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy it.

I hope that you will all have a great weekend and can spend time with your father or your family.  I'm so blessed to be able to spend time with mine and doubly blessed to be able to spoil my daddy on his special day.  Hug your family and let them know how special they are to you.  We are not promised tomorrow and need to make the most of every minute we have together.  Now, for those of you who remember to take camera in hand and have a special guy in your life, take the photo and create a layout about how/why he is so special to you.  Then go to the Ivy Scraps Forum and share it in there and in the gallery.  You can get this awesome kit free from LilyBelle Designs, just for sharing it there.

Have a great weekend, everyone!  Happy Father's Day to my male friends who are fathers.  Love you all!  Hugs
