A surgery update...

Well, we are home after a very long day but Hubby made it through the surgery perfectly! There was a little more work in there then what the doc thought at first, but it wasn't anything that the doc and his team couldn't handle.
It was a long day starting at 345 am - I got up and got dressed ( dressed as much as one can get dressed while still trying to sleep through it all!)  and then made sure the truck was all packed with everything we needed- Oh did I mention that we didn't get to bed until 1am? Then it was time to get the kids up, pillows packed,and we were on our way. We left a little early hoping to stop by Krispy Kreme but they were closed at 5 am. So we headed to the office, got there about 15mins. When we got in there I have to say- they were prompt, starting things right on the time that they said they were!  Surgery started at 7 am - kids took a nap on their blankets and pillows for about 1.5 hours at about 830 am. then by 10 am doc came out and said he was all done and gave me the update on what he had done, by 2 am Mike was home! It was a looooooong day but the kids were awesome for the most part ( and with out eating all day too!). DH is home and sleeping ( living) on the sofa for a while ( days even weeks) . Thank you for all of the prayers and thoughts on this. The Lord is a great God and I am thankful that I am a child of his. I never had any worries about anything going wrong, but it is nice to know that we have such a great God on our side.
I have some pictures to post  little later ( in a day or two) I am sooo very tired at the moment that I am going to call it a night- we have another doc apt. in the morning at 730 am .... got. to. get. some. ssssleeep.

O.M.G. It's HERE!!! I GOT IT!!!

Well for Mother's day Mike wanted to get me the Nikon D-3000... which I was beyond excited for, only problem is ..that they were sold out all over town. I didn't want to let on to much how heart broken I was, but I was- I have been looking fwd to having this camera for a while now- well just really drooling over it everytime we went in to the store. Don't get me wrong I already have a nice point and shoot that Mike got me for my birthday 3 years ago after Morgan was born. I was sooo excited to get that camera too- it was an upgrade then from my 'little' point and shoot ( one of the first ones on the market) and it has done an awesome job of keeping up with me- and I take a LOOOOOOT of pictures! ( Mike is always telling me I am picture taking crazy). Welll... anyways.. I was able to find a store the other day that had the camera bundle in stock!!! I was so excited I almost cried!! (  think I might have a little when paying LOL) I got the entire bundle for $540.00 after taxes- which included camera case, lens, camera body, memory card, the software, some 'how-to use' books, and all the cables needed. I think I got a good deal... What do you think? But as normal I have been taking pictures like crazy with the new camera figuring it all out... so here are some of the pictures I have taken...... in the last couple of days ( that are good enough to share! LOL) The dog in the picture is my 'third child' Monica- the best Christmas gift I have ever gotten!
I promise to get better as I take more pictures! =)

I even got a 'how to book' from my wonderful hubby with my camera, which gives everything in detail. I can't wait to be able to sit down and read it.
On a differant note...
My hubby is going in for his knee surgery in the AM (5:30 am!! May 20th) to have several things fixed from a fall he took durning training at work.  So please keep him in your prayers through out the day that God will guide the doctors and nurses hands and that all goes well. When he is home safe and sound I will give everyone an update on how it went. Well I am off to take more pictures!
I hope everyone out there is doing well! Drop me a comment and let me know! =)

Still alive...

Sorry that I have gotten behind on posting! I really don't have an excuse, just been lazzzy. Everyone here is doing well, nothing new really going on- T-ball, waiting for the hubbs knee to get better, waiting for school to finish for the year, homeschool with Morgan, etc...
There are some current things going in with our T-ball team that I'm not happy with at the moment but that will have to be a rant for a later time...I need to get the house picked up... I just wanted to post and let everyone know I am still alive over here and everything is still going!
Hope everyone has a great day!

Happy Mother's Day..

To all the Moms, Moms-to-be, Grandmothers, so on and so forth out there! Although my mother is now been gone going on 10 years this Aug. There are still many, many days that I think of all she has done for me and my sister though out her time as a mom. She always told us no matter what- being a mother was the best time in her life and that there is nothing else that the Lord could have blessed her with that would be better then just that- being a mother...
So, here is to my mom and days gone by, moms that are just starting out, 'seasoned' mothers out there and everyone that 'fits'....

I pray everyone has a great day!!!

Daily Life... sorta

Hi Everyone!
 There hasn't been much going on around here that is out of the norm for us, just the weekly T-Ball ( pictures below) practices and games. Melessa is almost done with school for the year! * YEA* I think I might be more excited for her to get out for the summer then she is about it! We have after many hours of talking decided to home school her though out the summer and next school year. We unfortunately feel that she public school she is 'required' to attend for our area is not to our standards. And paying for a private school isn't something we can do at the moment. So PLEASE pray for us as we make this leap for the first time with our children! I am nervous about it all but would never let on to the kids- they would freak out - a 'OH NO! Mommy is worried about it so I should be too' type of thing and we don't want any of that going on here! We have been working on penmanship with Morgan and writing letter(s), this week it is the letter - R. So far so good- for the most part. There have been a couple of times when tears were shed but over all it is going well.

Now for some more fun stuff... I have another giveaway coming up, and for those of you with girls (and even you Moms and gals out there!) your going to want in! So keep in eye out and keep watching for info, it should be out with in the next week or so. I am excited! * happy giddy dance*

Here are some pictures of T-ball... Isn't he just the cutest in his uniform?

Here is a picture of Morgan's Letter R(s) from yesterday... so proud =)
 Don't mind Melessa's scribbles all over it LOL she was marking the ones she 'liked'

Well I better get back to that 'daily' life of mine! Hope everyone has a great day!
