Sorry you aren't able to be here Beverly. All the best with your daughter's journey. We'll miss you especially if Dan & I have another singalong.
Looking forward to meeting everyone this afternoon.

Gee, I am soooo sad that I'm not able to make it this time...and I'll miss all of you from past CM Phoenix trips, as well as meeting all you "new" friends. Although I wish I was packing My bag right now, I just finished helping my daughter pack HER "go bag" for the delivery room. I'll let you know tomorrow if this is the real deal or just false labor!
Angie, my prayers are with your sister-in-law and family, for a healthy new niece soon!
