We've made it through!
We're all here together, everyone is healthy, and it is time to celebrate!

So, 'naturally' we started thinking of things that we could do without going to the 'middle of nowhere'. But with so many choices you can see 'my dilemma'. We could go 'round and round' trying to find a place where we can 'live like there's no tomorrow', and 'when the sun goes down', and they 'hit the lights', feel like we 'own the night'. Who knows, maybe we can even find some fireworks that go 'bang, bang, bang'!

Whatever we decide to do, I promise you, by the end of the night you will know that we 'love you like a love song'! But we need your help. 'Who says' that we know where you want to go. So put on your thinking caps and tell us where you think we should go to check out the scene and get this party started!

Can you guess where we took the girls and three of their friends tonight to celebrate the end of Elena's treatment????

Mark wrote the above riddle to surprise the girls with a special treat. The words in quotations are actual song titles by Selena Gomez. After reading the riddle to the girls, it still took them a moment to figure it out.

We had a blast singing and dancing the night away!
Enjoy the smilebox below!

Tomorrow will be the actual last day of treatment!! Elena will take her final chemo pill in the hour after eating!!! Just like she has for the past 366 days!!!

As always thank you for your continued prayers!!

In Him,
The Tates

"God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8
