It was the week of the Iditarod….

Dallas and Aliy (my favs shown above at the start) came in 1st and 2nd in a VERY exciting finish. There had been a really bad storm and Dallas didn’t even know he’d won the race, he thought he’d come in 3rd. I’m happy for his win, but sad for Aliy as this was her 3rd year in 2nd place (twice now behind Dallas and once behind his Dad, Mitch, who came in 3rd this race).

It was definitely a race to be remembered. The stories still being told are just incredible. I’ll definitely be ordering the DVD of this years race!!

It was definitely a night to celebrate as she’d just been given the remarkable news that the cancer in her lungs had all but disappeared and no further treatment is required.

IMG_7627.jpg

It was the week I took Christy into emergency (after being off school for the last 2 weeks), as recommended by her GP. But it seems there is nothing more we can do for her until we see her Pediatrition in January. Thankfully she has been feeling well since our visit.
