IF you notice on the RIGHT side of my blog there is a tab that says PLEASE PRAY FOR CHRISSIE
Please click on it and it will take you to her blog. SHe is one sick little girl who has a will to fight for life. Our God is in the miracle business and her little body is proof that miracles do happen...she has a long road ahead of her but she is hanging in there right now. PLEASE follow along!

I am so sorry once again for being so lazy with my blog....I am hooked on Facebook, where alot of my friends and family are so i have totally abandoned this poor blog. It is so easy from my iphone to do a photo update or status update of what is going on.....and well i havent found that for my blogger...Im gonna look though...

In the meantime, let me share a few quick things happening around here.

We had G&G's IEP for SECOND grade and all went well. We were happy with the outcome and look forward to seeing it all playout in the fall.

Isabella is heading to KINDERGARTEN in the fall.....did you hear me....KINDERGARTEN! My little baby girl is growing up... I cant believe its time for her to go to K5! She will also be going to Coosada with G&G and also riding the special needs bus. She has tried to get on the bus for two years now and will be so thrilled for the day to come where we let her climb up in there all on her own!

Lily is finishing up first grade as well and will be staying at Victory Baptist School for second grade. She loves her school and they have some good discpline there and she oh so needs that! I feel with her.. if we put her in public school all the hard work we have done with her behavior will be taking huge steps backwards. So for now, until she matures more...we will stay at VB.

Lyndsey and Michael are doing good. Lyndsey has been busy with her unit as they are still preparing for a deployment to Iraq in November of this year...IM NOT HAPPY with that. but that is what a soldier does.
Mike is working in Rose Mary and his Army Reserve unit will be gone the whole month of July to their annual training....he isnt happy about that! HOT HOT HOT!

WE are preparing our house for sale. WE would love to move into a newer, larger home and so our house is now on the market. It hit the MLS one week ago today and has showed several times. We had a offer within the first 48 hours but after two days, it feel through....the folks couldnt approval for the amount. We are so praying God's will for our home, and if it is HIS will for us to sell and move then HE and only HE will work it out. so we sit and wait....preparing and packing.

William and I had a great time in CALI. Nice to get away and spend time with one another. Thanks to April and Wade for keeping all 4 girls.

Oh William found and bought his dream car...BMW z3 convertible. Its silver with a black top..very pretty and a oh so good price. A guy in Rose Mary owned it and just didnt drive it much...its a 2002 with only 34k miles on it.

Happy birthday William

OK OK OK....I Know it has been three weeks since I updated. It has been crazy!!! I have tons of pictures to share and lots to tell you all....but today is a special day....

today is .......


We started the day as usual busy and getting the girls up and out of the house in 45 min for school. They were so excited that today was Daddy's birthday....I cooked him a sausage and cheese omelet and biscuits..yummy~ we added a candle to the top and made him blow it out..

Today I went and met him for lunch and we went to Jason's Deli...yum yum! Tonight we are getting a sitter and going to dinner with April and Wade. I was going to have a party on Saturday but he told me he had to go to Huntsville Fri night for a Saturday hmm..Im not doing a party Sat late afternoon if Im not sure he will be 100% home. So it looks like his party will have to be after his actual birthday.

The girls are doing great...growing like little weeds. Hard to believe that Giovanna and Gabby will both be EIGHT 8 yrs old in a month! wow!!!! Where did the time go? I promise to update within the day or two and show plenty of pictures. All four girls started baseball and are playing on the Miracle League team..AWESOME and Lily is playing soccer with her school. So sports are filling up alot of time around here....they love it!
