Snowed in, then Out

Last week we were given tickets from Children's Hospital to see Disney on Ice on Saturday. Well the weather fouled up those plans as there was no way we were going to get more than a few blocks, even if we wanted to. Below is a picture taken of the snow drift piled up against Julia's window.

Luckily we were able to transfer our tickets to Sunday and since the roads were decent, we still got to make it to the skating show. All four of us enjoyed it and it was great looking over and seeing big smiles on the kids' faces. The tickets for the Saturday show were in a suite with other people from Children's Hospital. Our transfer tickets were in the same suite but we were the only ones in it, which made it kind of lonely, but the extra space was nice.

I had been disappointed of our change of plans because the Packers game was going to be on TV (the Metrodome's loss was our gain), but now I was going to be away from home for the whole thing. I was able to see the score during intermission and the very ending of the game when the show was over. At that point, I was glad I missed it.

Finn got mad a few times when we wouldn't buy him one of the spinning, flashing toys. Julia explained to him, "Finn. They walk around and yell because they're just trying to get you to buy their stuff." The kids did get cotton candy though, as we couldn't hold off ALL the demands.

The above two pictures are without Finn because he insisted he was NOT getting his picture taken. We actually snagged someone to get a family shot of us and he threw a fit and wouldn't cooperate for it.

The show consisted of Mickey and gang traveling to different places while on vacation. So the parts that they acted out were from The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch, and Peter Pan. They were all really neat to see, but Peter Pan was our favorite.

Our schedule this week is chemo on Tuesday. Julia is still doing well. She's feeling tired at times and still doesn't have much of an appetite. Since she's already lost a few pounds (from where, I'm not sure), we try to coax her towards high calorie, high fat foods and are more lax when it comes to snacks. Those sorts of rules don't always make it easy for Amanda and me to eat healthy though!

Sounds like an awesome time. We are so happy you had the chance to go see Mickey and all of the other characters. Thank you to Children's Hospital. Take it easy in the snow. Keep Warm! Love you, Grandma Beth
