They Got it ....

My dad is very allergic to mosquitoes.... a few years ago while sitting on hit front porch - he smacked a mosquitoe.... a few months later he had a very small red bump come up...over the years it started to grow... A few weeks ago I made him a doctor appointment...Dr. Bonner informed us that he thought is was skin cancer - he had a biosopy on it and it did come back as skin cancer - we went to see Dr. Wood who explained everything he would do during the surgery.. what was suppose to have taken 15 minutes ended up being 55 minutes as it was alot deeper than he orignally thought.... daddy ended up with 19 stitches and will have quite the little scar ... they had to take a flap of his skin and form it to cover the hole... We just PRAISE GOD that Dr. Wood was able to get IT ALL. It was such a blessing to hear those words and to know once again just how our Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers.

My Daddy....

Is trying SOOO hard to be strong... he still misses my momma so much. It breaks my heart sometimes just to look at him. I can't even imagine loosing my soul mate... We try our best to keep him busy but I know it doesn't take away the pain. Please keep him in your prayers... We know only God is the only one that can truly bring about healing.

Devil's Den State Park

The boys enjoying their "picnic dinner"
Chance, Kapreil & Addison on the paddle boats... They loved this!

2 weeks ago after church we took a trip over to Devil's Den for "something different to do" - We were lucky to grab the last picnic available -- enjoyed some good 'ole sandwiches & chips. Afterwards the kids played on the playground for a bit than off to the paddle boats. Kapriel was a little scared to get on at first but Uncle Chance assured her that it was fun! They had a blast!!!

My cup runneth ..... OVER

There are no words to truly express how blessed I am to be married to my best friend for 23 years. He still does the "little things" that touch my heart. The other night when I got home he was already in bed asleep... I tip toe to my side of the bed to & take my glasses off to put them on my night stand only to that - "that spot has been taken" I get the flash light to see what is there and find that on his way home from work he stopped at Harp's & bought a package of candy kisses and put them in my favorite yellow coffee mug and put them on my night stand. Is that not precious or what?

Thank you Heavenly Father for creating my soul mate & for bringing us together.
May we continue to grow in your love & may it glorify you.

Last Year....

I have been carrying around a box of kleenex for the past week ... Chance is going to be a SENIOR this year.... I keep thinking geez.... WHERE has the time gone.... 17 years ago I was carrying him around in my tummy.... NOW he is a SENIOR, drives, doesn't need me to "baby" him anymore.... I also feel sad because I know how much momma would have loved to see him graduate... she was so proud of the girls when they did & took so many pictures....

He doesn't even come close to realizing how much his life will change after his SENIOR YEAR... but I guess that is the beauty of youth!!!

Enjoy your year "my little man" --- you deserve it!
