Exciting News...

...I can finally tell!!!!  Son and Daughter-in-love #3 are expecting a baby!!!!!!  We have known for WEEKS now, but they wanted to wait until they could see a doctor before we said anything.  Because of past health issues, this babe is an answer to all are!  Last week they had their first doctor's appointment and ultrasound...because of a presenting health issue.  But Babe and Mommy look great, just need to follow a little closely for a while!
The due date for the new one is April 28, 2013!

Also, we have some dear and close friends from McPherson, Kansas visiting us!  They were our youth helpers when Hubby was youth pastor in Kansas.  It is going to be wonderful catching up and just spending time together.  Uh...we can't run water or flush the toilets...we discovered we must have a broken sewer pipe.  Going to be insteresting trying to locate it and visiting!

Have a wonderful Lord's day! 

Twenty Nine Years and Counting

Yesterday, 24 September, Hubby and I celebrated our 29th anniversary.  It really does not seem possible.  In my mind's eye I am still 19 years old and building a life with the man of my dreams.  Reality says, "Put your glasses on!" 

I am no longer nineteen, but forty eight.  I am still building a life with the man of my dreams.  Our dreams of our life together have changed over the last 29 years, but it has been worth it.

I am reminded of a song that Kenny Rogers used to sing, Through the Years.

I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you
I swear we've been through everything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Through the years, you've never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
I've never been afraid, I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed…

Another September Birthday

Today is a milestone birthday for
Daughter #2...she turns 20 today!!! I can not believe how time has flown by. 
It seems like just yesterday we were bringing
her home from the hospital.

We have a New Grand Baby!!!

Introducing... Grandson #5 (Grandchild #7) Born September 18, 2012 8:20 PM 7 pounds 11 ounces 20 inches long 

Birthday Pictures

Yesterday Daughter #6 turned eleven.  What does a girl of eleven want?  Well, this girl wanted something that really surprised me!

Happy Birthday

Today Daughter #6 turns eleven.  I can hardly believe she came into this world weighing only 2 pounds 9 ounces!  She was born at 28 weeks and spent three months in the NICU.  She has grown into a healthy child and has no problems as a result of her being premature.  We are so thankful for the grace God gave us and how He grew our faith during her NICU stay and wires and monitors that came home with her!


Heart is Breaking

This ol' momma's heart is breaking.  Daughter #1 and Grandson came to say good-bye before Son-in-love #1 taking them to the airport.


Life has been busy the last couple of weeks.  We have completed two weeks of school.  I love the structure of school because our day has a routine.  But, I sure do enjoy Saturdays and a long weekend! 

Daughter #1 and Grandson came home on Friday for a "four day".  They will fly out to return to Fort Bragg, NC.  So we will start the count down to her final days of her coming home for good--ninety-four days!  That is so far away...but she will try to be home for Thanksgiving.

I have no pictures yet of our weekend as a family.  Daughter #2, our photographer, has not yet uploaded/downloaded {whatever the lingo} the pictures she has taken.

I started getting sick late Thursday of last week.  I felt horrible on Friday, left sinus and teeth hurt so bad.  I felt even worse on Saturday, right sinus and teeth!  I still had to go to the grocery!  By the afternoon I felt like I was finished.  But I kept going, until yesterday.  I finally had to call it quits and stay home from church.  I a…
