All Aboard!

My hours at the hospital are done, I am almost done with all the details surrounding the flip I am working on....

We leave tomorrow and I am so looking forward to no work, and regular sleep-- and lots of sun and family time! This is going to be great. Just need to finish up packing and clean the house some so it won't be a wreck when I get back. Then off to Florida :)
Can you tell I am excited??

Orange for Stellan!

Stellan is getting his surgery this morning for his heart abalation... we are in prayer for a safe surgery and for a heart that beats in normal rythym.

Young Chef

Well we had a FULL day, but a fun day! Starting with soccer, then to Luke's Friend Meg's birthday party, then my nephew's wife-to-be Ashley's bridal shower.

Here is Luke with the Birthday Girl, whose dad mentioned more than once that Luke was her "boyfriend"... He insisted on sitting by her, awwwww

He was only one of 2 boys invited, thanks to his smashing personality he always makes the girls invite list. Isn't that funny?
Thankfully he did pretty well with staying in his chair and didn't get too silly until after the cake- when I could blame it on the sugar!

They each made their own pizza :) It was yummy too!

Cutest chef I've ever seen!
Sweeters was in fine form too making friends with everyone and showing off her almost walking skills :)

Kitchen Fun

Sweeters, much like Luke likes to be in the middle of what's going on. She drives me crazy when I try to cook because she wants me to hold her and doesn't like being on the ground where she can't see. So Wayne's solution:

Gotta love that smart Poppy!

Wordful Wednesday

Oh My Lukey
You are one funny guy
Don't forget the hat (you have two favorite ones currently)
Mama's Uggz (aka pirate boots)
Which you stick a sword in the side of one boot, and pistol in the other....

I tell you when we cuddle that you are mama's favorite pirate. And it was soooo cute when I forgot to tell you one time, and you asked to make sure...

"Mommy I'm your favorite Pirate?"

Oh yes Luke! You will always be my favorite pirate :)

there for me

All last week I was feeling overwhelmed with this working nights... trying my best to stay positive but it is hard to stay awake all night on a regular basis. At a point it feels like your body just wants to shut down, you feel terrible. And my mom-in-law who has faithfully been helping me with Sophia in the mornings has now started working. So I have been stressing about who will help with her, how I will sleep, wondering where is God in all this?

And this morning I had a so sweet package from my mom (now I'm tearing up)... she sent me a great book about enduring tough times, and a wonderful card. Mom, I love you. That was just perfect and so encouraging. I had not known really what to read -- but now I have a book to focus on for a quiet time.

So I was getting ready to go into Target-- and trying to figure out who would help with Sophia since I can't really pay someone or that would wipe out everything I made... So I realized I should just pray and ask. I prayed ... God, would you provide help for me. I know you are in the little details, and I need help with Sophia. I had texted my friend Erica earlier and while we were in the store she texted me back stepping right in to help me! She is going to drive to my house and take both kids... drop her boys and Luke to school, then watch Sophia while I sleep and bring her back in the afternoon. WOW! I can't express how much that helps me! Erica is that type of friend that will be there the extra mile and never even think twice about it. I love you Erica!

Thank you God for encouraging my heart today.

Beach Babes

Clarke Jaden Sophia

Wednesday, April 1, 2009


Can that much puke really come out of a baby?... I was thinking when Sophia barfed all over in the kitchen. And I mean ALL over, I think it covered the whole floor. Yuck. Don't know where that came from. But the positive thing is since working in the hospital with poop and all bodily fluids--- puke does not phase me!

She is finally taking a nap. Yay.

Luke is home too cuz Wayne watched them while I slept... 3 hours.

Looking forward to going down to Sandbridge beach tomorrow to hang with my Sal and J-Man. Don't have to work again until saturday... PARTY!
