Now, I know I was rather long with that topic, and it has been FOREVER (it seems) since I last posted. Things are going great at our house. Kids are growing super fast and right now are semi-healthy (we always have a pesky ear infection or an eczema breakout at least once a month) and the boys are BOYS, no doubt, They shave about 6 months off of my life every week. If they aren't jumping off the couch and bed, they are climbing on the dresser or on top of the cabinet. They get in to everything, they tie up all the time and fight like cats and dogs and they give the best hugs and kisses any little boys could give ;)
Kaidi is getting so growny and I just can't get over how wise that little girl is. She amazes me all the time! Things are really starting to feel like home in Dothan. We have had our house for sale since October and have had a few people look at it and few others call, but I think we are about to take the sign out of the yard and give it a little bit of time. We want to scope out some land and find the place we want to make our home and build again. It was such a wonderful process for us and we would probably built the exact same house, well, maybe not exact, maybe a few changes, but it was a pretty good floor plan, if i do say so myself ;). We've started "pinteresting" ideas together and hopefully we will see those "pins" come to life soon enough.
I wanted to add a few prayer requests for those of you that are the praying type: Even if you're not, just throw up a few words as you read this and that is better than nothing at all.
- One of my best friends, Toyia is going through a tough time right now since her mother has recently been diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She shares about their journey on her blog and if you can offer a word of encouragement to her and prayers for her mother as she starts her first treatments this week, that would be AWESOME.
- My granddaddy underwent surgery last Tuesday to remove cancerous tumors from his colon and will hopefully go home this week. He will have a temporary colostomy bag while his body heals from his 5-6 hour surgery they performed. I'm not sure of what kind of treatment he will do because they were waiting to hear back from his lab work from the tumors they removed.
- Fellow MOPS mom, Channie, is at Children's in Birmingham with her oldest son after he's been sick throwing up and in a lot of pain for the past week. They are still trying to pin point exactly what is going on. She also has her baby up there with her as well because he won't take a bottle. Pray for guidance for the doctors and patience for Channie as she handles her 2 boys and misses her other 2 boys that are at home with their daddy.
I know there are so many more things I could list, but these are the 3 that I am adding for the day. Thank you all so much.
