LEGO's and coffee... Day 399 16DEC09

Joshua and I demolished a beach house today and then built a coffee shop on the same piece of real estate. We even managed to get it done before lunch time hit. Joshua was bored you see because Jarrod was doing school work and he didn't have anybody to play with. So I suggested we take on a quick construction project and here are the results.

Okay, it's not exactly a functional coffee shop but it is pretty cool and we had a lot of fun building it together. If I could figure out how to make an espresso machine that small that actually worked I would have one installed in my car. I had to leave for work soon after we were finished but it was a morning well spent.

This evening we attended the St. Joseph's Hospital clinic;s big Christmas bash. We went last year and had a great time and this year was no different. Great food and lots of fun for the kids. It was wonderful to watch these children, many of whom we know very well, dance and play. The smiles that they bring to our lips are sweet as is the laughter at their merriment. They have all fought so hard just to stay alive... they deserve a party every day.

Afterwards it was back to work for me and off to home for Renee and the kids. A big thanks to all the wonderful nurses and Doctor's who take care of our children and who gave us a wonderful chance to celebrate tonight.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Pretty cool looking coffee shop! It must have been fun being on a construction project with your Dad.

I'm so glad you had fun at the Christmas Party. Your Dad's correct - all of you warriors should be having a party every day.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior - you are the Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

What better way to spend a day than playing with your son. It's so wonderful and different than last year and has been a long road for all of you.

I am very proud to call you my friends and love you very much! It is a blessing you were there with all your cancer family yesterday.
Love, Laura & Frank
