My sister is sick again. She was recently promoted to another floor at the hospital she works at. In this area, she works with many kids who are extremely sick and contagious. When they promoted her, they told her she would constantly be sick until she built up immunities to these things and everyone who works on this floor stays sick on and off for at least a year.
Well, she's very sick again. If all of my friends here would keep her in our thoughts and prayers I would really appreciate it.
I hope everyone has a great weekend:)

We just arrived home from Little Rock a few hours ago. We had a great time with my niece. Her party was a huge success and she had the time of her life! It was held a place called Party Central. It's one of those places where there are tons of blow up slides and places where kids can jump around in without getting hurt. She had a blast and the kids that were at her party did too. One of the funniest moments was when after everyone sang Happy Birthday to her and she blew out the candles, Snow White stood up and said, "Thank you for coming to my party everyone" and then she curtsied like a princess. The 'Princess in training' at Disney World must have paid off because she did this totally on her own. She really is a sweet little Princess!
The picture above is of her before her big party.
The second and third picture was taken yesterday at my mother's house. We gave her a small family pool party, and she had a blast. This is the first year she's really expressed any interest or had fun at my mother's pool. Before we know it, she'll be swimming like a fish! I love how excited she was as she blew out the four candles on the cake. I wish she always has this kind of enthusiasm and excitement about all of her birthdays and special occasions for the rest of her life.
I'm glad we're home. After I get some much needed sleep, tomorrow I've got tons of writing to catch up on. I'm excited about Daniel's Dream being released, and happy that it's number 6 on Silver's best selling list right now. YAY!
Have a great week, y'all!

Well it's been a good week. I finished my edits for Daniel's Dream and should be receiving my ARC copies for it sometime this week. Daniel's Dream was really a fun book to write. I really enjoyed revisiting the characters from His Christmas Wish and I'm looking forward to one day writing Daniel's own book.
I spent some time this week with my niece and sister. Snow White's 4th birthday is on the 15th of this month so we've been looking for things for her party. Her theme is rainbows, hearts and flowers so everyone who comes has to bring her a flower of some kind (they can even be flowers from a field) so she can put them in a special vase for her party. She's excited about it and I plan on posting some pictures of it next week so y'all can see how much she's grown since Christmas.(Pictured above)
We've been doing some home improvement projects at home too. We've put a very nice cover on our back porch and now we're looking for some nice lawn chairs to relax comfortably out there while we enjoy out backyard. But, after seeing some of the outrageous prices for lawn furniture, we're obviously still on the hunt for it. I couldn't believe that outdoor furniture is as expensive as some indoor furniture! How in the heck did that happen? I remember the days when you could find a very nice chairs for fifty bucks or so. Now they want a hundred or more! UGH! Maybe we should hit some thrift shops or something... :)
As soon as I receive my ARC copies of Daniel's Dream I'll hold a contest for a freebie. I hope everyone has a great weekend:)
