Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Three days before chemo Judy is PARTY LADY


On the eve of St. Nick's day (Dec. 6) Judy invited various little munchkin friends over to the house to a cookie-decorating party. The parents were also allowed to come. Anna, Noah, Nicole, and Alli were the best party guests ever, spilling nothing but sprinkles and spreading icing mainly on the cookies or around their mouths. It was quite a sight! The mothers had their fun, too, while the boys decided to destroy some of that evil beer that they are now selling in Lubbock.

Despite a lot of preparatory work--yes, there were some snacks for the adults as well--Judy absolutely loved the day, and it seems everyone else did too.

It is starting to feel like Christmas in Lubbock, with traffic around the mall insane and the temperature not even hitting 27 Fahrenheit today. I have my last day of classes tomorrow, and Judy will undergo another round of chemo. So, life just rolls along.

Oh what fun! Perhaps a new tradition has begun. My Mom used to have amazing Christmas Cookie parties, and to this day former "kids" that attended those parties will tell my Mom how much they loved those parties, and many of them have started cookie party traditions of their own.

You look fantastic Judy! I haven't seen that much hair on your head in a long long time.


Love,love,love,and Merry Christmas!

I like the hair, Judy. Different, eh? I'm glad for the good lab. Good luck with the urologist. I'll miss y our Christmas cookies, oh phooey!

We've had minus 19 degrees at night and a high of 13 lately, along with 8.5 inches of snow. They tell us this is unusual for Grand Junction, which is "the banana belt" of Colorado. Good timing on our part, eh? It's really beautiful though, and we've been cozy and warm enough. Sammy the dog loves the snow, until little iceballs form in between his toes!
Take care and have a Merry Christmas. We're going to NYC to visit Amy, and then a train ride to Virginia to visit Fred's siblings. Weather permitting of course. We're looking forward to it.
Love, Cheryl and Fred
