Well Devree and I have been keeping ourselves pretty busy with all of the love that has been shown us these last few days. Aunt Jan in Idaho sent us her handsewn beautiful bunny and a little plaque that says "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain." Isn't that a good one? THANK YOU AUNT JAN!

We went to Young Women's last night in Germantown and the Activity Girls had made 3 baskets of cards and fun stuff. THANK YOU SUSAN! Then Devree and Emma went to young womens in a new Blonde wig that Devree acquired from a girl that was giving her wigs and wig shampoo away. Devree got to see what its like to be blonde and made "ditzy" jokes all evening. The Young Women gave her a huge box with about 10 hats, scarves and a whole lot of Jonas Brother's (a light up blanket to BOOT!) and Twilight stuff. THANK YOU LISA and YOUNG WOMEN! Dawn also made Devree a blanket with her name embroidered on it and some wonderful meals for us to eat later. THANK YOU DAWN! Also Aunt Celest, Tayzia and Uncle Breck brought back the coolest Jonas Brothers shirt from Disney World. THANK YOU UNCLE BRECK, AUNT CELEST and TAYZIA! As she put her shirt on today, she didn't feel like just wearing jammies. She said "I look good so I need to wear jeans to match my cool Jonas Brothers shirt".

Today we had another wonderful basket of things including Ketchup which Devree wanted. THANK YOU LIZ! Devree made a few valentines to give to everyone at St. Jude's too. We made a little basket of goodies to give to "E" clinic. Dad and husband Todd gave Devree and I wonderful valentines stuff. THANK YOU TODD and DAD! He also sent a gift from Terry. THANK YOU TERRY! Celest asked me last night if I missed Todd and I told her I can't even go there. It is such a loooong time till we get to go home and I just have to go day by day. But thank you Todd for learning how to be a great MR. Mom. We love you lots and hope you get our valentine package soon.

Hi Devree,

When you were throwing up for 48 hours I was wondering what we could do to raise your spirits. I imagine you are feeling pretty loved right now, and it couldn't happen to a better girl. :-)

One of the guys I work with got this blonde joke right after I read your latest blog.

A blonde woman was speeding down the road in her little red sports car and was pulled over by a woman police officer who was also a blonde.

The blonde cop asked to see the blonde driver's license. She dug through her purse and was getting progressively more agitated.

'What does it look like?' she finally asked.

The police woman replied, 'It's square and it has your picture on it.'

The driver finally found a square mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman. 'Here it is,' she said.

The blonde officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying, 'OK, you can go. I didn't realize you were a cop.'

Love you Devree!!!
