Please remember that our cars need to have some sort of Christmas decoration on them. You don't have to go crazy (but you can), but the parade organizers do ask for more than simply hanging a wreath on your mirror. Very Happy

See you kids in the morning. party0006

Beth and I won't be at the Parade... First time in like 5 years.


We'll miss you and Beth.(mostly Beth Wink ) I was looking forward to hearing the comments people make when they see something new to them like a Double Cab.

Hey. I hacked into Shane's account ha

Tomorrow they are asking for everyone who is doing a float to bring at least ten can goods and for everyone who attends to bring at least 5 can goods. I did not see this information till a few minutes ago and thought I would pass it along, it is more than likely to late for anyone to see...

American Pest Control is doing this and will have their trucks stationed around as well as a bus (a school bus not a VW bus ha) close to the main stage to take donations. Thanks

Rebecca

Korbin and I had a great time. Every year just seems to get better. I ran out of candy about 3/4 the way in. Maybe next year I will pack a reserve bag. Thank You Clyde for hosting the after Party in your new house, the barbecue was very tasty, I had to go back for seconds. I managed to shoot a few pictures of the event.

Looks like a good time.. hate that we missed it. The Double Cab and Beth's Bug were both ready for action.

Ava Ann Raby was born @ 1332 on Friday.. After only about 5 minutes in the delivery room she was taken to the Neonatal ICU unit due to a spinal defect. (I was the one that pointed it out in the delivery room!)

Long story made much shorter is Beth stayed in Athens at the Hospital while I chased Ava to Egleston Children's Hospital where we remain today. She will undergo Surgery to correct a Dorsal Sinus Tract and Tethered Spinal Cord on Tuesday and we will be here with her for 3-4 days or maybe more with her after that.

Beth was discharged from St. Mary's yesterday and joined me here. Just figured I'd give you guys an update. We are doing our best to keep this private so please don't crosspost.

We believe that she will be fine after these procedures, but they don't come without risk of infection and possible spinal cord issues from the surgery.

Here she is.




Here I am holding her, something that I finally got to do for the first time last night.


Beth with her just before she was taken to NICU after being born.

Thanks for the update Jake. She is beautiful. I will pray for her quick and complete recovery from her surgery.

If there is anything I can do help, please don't hesitate to ask.
