Getting ready for the weekend

I got this card this week from Dianne a friend I met that is also battling breast cancer from California. She loves to make cards and just sent me this one, how funny is this?!?
I LOVE IT!! Thanks Dianne, you will be here soon too! It has been so nice here this week. In the 80s everyday. Then today came along it is still dark outside at 10:15 in the morning. Raining, overcast and not yet to 60. Gotta love that changing Colorado weather.

I went to a Relay for Life meeting on Tuesday night and think that the new location they are doing this year is going to be awesome. It will be at The Ranch behind the Budweiser Event Center. They have a close place to park the camper near our team campsite around the track which will hopefully be a shorter trek then last year. We are also doing with with Fort Collins and it should be much larger and hopefully more fun. At least we will have better bathroom facilities! I am really looking forward to doing it and it seems like we have a great group to do it.

We ended up raising $106 from our Baskin Robbins fundraiser on top of the "tips". So we made over $200 for Relay. Great job team! We are still planning on having our garage sale next Saturday on May 31st and would still appreciate any donations that you are willing to make to our sale to raise money for American Cancer Society and Relay for Life. Contact me if you have anything you want to donate to our sale.

Wendy, Annette, and Julie (I think was helping also) finished the quilt for our contribution to the silent auction and relay. It is made out of that super soft material. Look how beautiful it is. Great job ladies! You Rock!
I found out this morning from my cousin that my aunt who had Huntington's disease is rapidly declining and has been given a few months left to live. I was so sad to hear that she is doing so poorly. According to my cousin she can't chew, swallow, walk, and doesn't want to have visitors any longer. My cousins lost their father at a young age and are now going to be losing their mother shortly. Please keep them in your prayers during this difficult time. I love you guys!
We picked up the camper yesterday and are in the process of cleaning and getting everything packed and ready to go for tomorrow. We are so excited! I have so much left to do but can't wait to get up there for the weekend and just relax and spend time with the kids. No Internet access so I can't even be tempted to get online and work. Darn! I am hoping to start reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. My sister, mom, and many friends are all raving about the series so I figured while I don't have anything that I HAVE to do up there it would be a good time to start. I guess they have made a movie that is coming out in December. Here is a movie trailer for it. Looks pretty good.
Wish us luck with no problems having the trailer out for the first time. Hope everyone has a fun Memorial Day weekend!

That card is so cute! What a funny friend. And I'm sure you'll get more comments on Twilight, but I suggest you bring all 3 books with you. I read them all in 3 days. Believe me, you'll want the next one right away. My husband Ethan and I are listening to them on tape right now. We are 1/2 way done with the 3rd. (And he actually likes them!)
