Busy week!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day! I was spoiled rotten! I have to say that my favorite gift was a beautiful necklace that Regan made for me. It is the one that I am wearing in this picture. One day She told me that she wanted me to take her to the bead shop that I go to get my beads from. She picked out the beads herself and then she restrung the necklace at least 5 times to get it just right!!! I will treasure it forever!!!

On Friday Regan and I went to go and see my mom in the High Desert. My mom's pace maker has not been working and she is having a lot of health problems. We decided that some girl fun was needed! While we were there we had a blast!!! My mom has a friend that just opened a wonderful Mexico restaurant (if you are up there and need a good one to eat at let me know!!) His daughter is Regan's age so we went and ate dinner there and then took her to have some fun! Regan and Samantha hit it off right away!!

Regan also learned a new skill while we were there. She is a pool shark now!! Watch out!

Motors for Mito!! On Saturday afternoon we went to Corona to support our little friend Taryn. (Maybe you remember her from Regan's b-day pics) Taryn has a Mitochondrial disease. It is very similar to Collin's illness. Mitochondrial disease is basically the bodies inability to convert food into energy inside the cells (where the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell which energy is produced by is found )... cell failure follows, and eventually death. They were holding a fund raiser up there and of course we had to go and show our support! It was an awesome day!! You did a great job EJ and Debi!!! We are so proud of you!

Taryn and Corey Miller. If Corey looks familiar it is because he is from the show LA Ink. He did EJ's tattoo of sweet little Taryn. He is such a sweet heart!

These are a few of the awesome bikes. It was wonderful how many people rode out to support Taryn and her sweet family!!!!

Our new buddy Corey! Collin just loved him and he was so sweet to Collin!!

I too am glad your Mother's day was so great. You work so hard and are a great example so you deserve the fun and pampering.

I loved the necklace Regan made you. She has her mommy's creative talent. Also looks like you guys had a great time with family and friends. You're so good at supporting everyone Julie. I don't know how you do it. I think you have 26 hours in a day instead of the normal 24! I'll give you a call this week to set up a bow making tutorial. :)

I'm sorry Collin's new med did not work. I had high hopes for it as it did wonders for Lance.
Take Care and I'll be praying for easy days for Collin.
