Coming Home…

Well, I spent much of the past week working on Coming Home for the Holidays. Here is where things stand as of March 31st:

I really like the 3-D effect this house gives off!!! I am determined to finish it in the next month or so (you’ll understand why after reading all the way through this post).

I have since picked up Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace and will work on it today while visiting my dad at the hospital. I’ll share pics tomorrow!

Speaking of…he had his surgery this morning finally. They removed a tumor from his colon and strongly feel it is colon cancer. They also biopsied some spots on his liver. My world feels like it’s crashing down, but I am hoping we caught it early enough that he will recover. I’ve been kinda preparing myself for this news but hoped it wouldn’t be. We will know the test results mid-week.
