Home Again!

We left on Friday afternoon for Willow Valley Resort south of Lancaster, PA.
We had tickets to go and see Miracle of Christmas at Sight and Sound Millenium Theater.
The set, including live animals and awesome special effects were amazing!

On Saturday we started at an Amish farm for a tour. We even took a buggy ride later.
Actually we first stopped at a shoe store to get some socks for me because I forgot to pack some and to replce my boots that came apart. I thought shopping was a great way to spend one's vacation. Norm thought differently.... till I got him his hat below.

Then we headed to Strasburg for the Choo Choo barn which is a huge O-gauge train display.

The next day (Sunday or today) we dressed up for brunch in the Palm Court.
First though we had another picture taking session.

I told Nicole to see if Norm's smile got bigger in his new hat.
She said, "Yes, it did."

"Can't we stay longer?"

We came home and then took the kids for one last hurrah..... to the theater to see "Marley and I". It was fun but all are very tired!

Not looking forward to this week. I start the chemo on Wednesday but must go to the doctor on Tuesday for tests and last minute consultation. Please continue to keep us in your prayers!

I always imagine it snowing this time of year back there. anyway, those pics you all took are cute, esp the ones with you and Norm together. =) Your flowers are pretty and HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!! Wow,at first I thought its a rap song and I was surprised you had it on your site. haha. I never heard of them. Well I better get to bed...school starts for me and my girls tomorrow!
