On the fourth day of Christmas

On the fourth day of Christmas, the Good Lord gave to me...

...four mighty Oakes
...three cheers of "Hallelujah"!
...two chemo drugs
...and an MRI with good news we could see!

It's always nice on Saturday mornings to have some hang time as a family. We are four "mighty Oakes" (two parents and two "acorns") who have withstood some mighty storms by banding together.

We have a little family anthem that we made up during a road trip:

We are, we are, we are, we are,
We are the Mighty Oakes!
There's Mommy, Daddy, Jacob, Emma -
We are friendly folks!
Two parents and two acorns,
We're happy as can be -
We are the Mighty Oakes
And we love our family tree!

Hi, Krista, I'm a good friend of Faith's, who talks about you all the time so I just popped in to wish you and yours well.

That is so wierd. After leaving the first comment on your blog, I left to check my email, and there was an ad for your Messiah. Enjoy it tomorrow.
