Hello Friend(s) far and near!

Monday, December 01, 2008

Without further ado, I bring a new blog entry to you! It was a busy November for The Royer family. First and foremost, yours truly turned 30..among the many parties held is the one here with my special little friends.

And along with my 30th came a new president. Man, I just can't wait to see the change everyone's talkin' about.

The Little Royer kiddos are alive and well - Ashley sleeps through the night, in fact, so do I. Hard to believe it took 30 years, I finally broke the habit. This brings me to share with you a picture:

This one is my favorite of Joshua. Notice his right ear sticking out? that's a true royer family trait. I would show more traits, but I want custody of my child more so than CPS.

While there are photos in the land of the internet of our new house; I'm not in a hurry to find them! Settlement is this friday; pray for my pocketbook 'cause AJ had a little fender bender and closing costs are never fun! and oh, my deductible is $1,000 if you're wondering.

last but not least, pray for my buddies on December 12th.

just a note

A roller coaster week of emotions; Ashley's heart murmur is fine, Joshua's hearing appears to be ok although the audiologist couldn't get a probe into his ear. Apparently his primary care doctor frazzled him trying to remove the excessive ear wax. Gross. The sad news is we withdrew our offer on the townhouse in Ashburn. You would think after four months of "this and that" the seller would get it together; apparently not. We're taking our cash elsewhere.

Send a kid to camp

Monday, October 06, 2008

Abbie Cranmer is raising funds in order to attend the 20th annual Association of Late Deafened Adult (ALDA) Convention in Chicago. I can't think of anyone more deserving to go -- Abbie is truly the ears, eyes, and voice for the cochlear implant community. She is a brilliant writer, one who can captivate and substantially contribute to the well-being of others with encouragement, love and support. Going through the CI process is indeed, a process. We all need a friend -- please help send our "kid" Abbie to camp!

brett thinks he's funny, wait til I get him back

Hey Grandma....

Annie: Hey Grandma, do you wanna watch my ice melt?

Well, finding humor this past week has been challenging! Don't you love it when you hear children ask the most innocent questions? I wonder if I have ever tried to watch ice melt. Maybe God is trying to tell me to slow down?

We are alive, well, and not-so-rested. Ashley had a clean bill of health on her one-week checkup. Alicia is still recovering.

On the housing front we have received no response from GMAC, the owners of the place we submitted an offer on. More questions than answers at this point.


Here She Is
