He’s Turned The Corner!


My baby boy has finally turned the corner!!!!  Thank you all so,, so much for praying for him.  All of the phone calls, texts, emails, and facebook posts have meant more to us than y’all will ever know.  To my friends who have helped, offered to help, brought food, came and visited, helped Raj, or any of the other things my exhausted brain can’t remember, thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks. 




As I said, Josh is doing much better.  He is not having to be on oxygen all of the time now.  It will be interesting to see how he does through the night……  Please pray he does well.




Today, we got to take him for a wagon ride out the the Koi pond area, that includes a mini putt-putt area and basketball court.  Josh was not sure if we were taking him to another place to torture him, so it took him a few minutes to chill out and realize we were in a fun place.  My friend Jennifer came up and visited with us.  It was so nice to see a friend and visit.  Thanks to her, I got some GREAT photos.  Thanks Jennifer, we love you.



Josh still has a few more days here.  He has to start eating and drinking.  He has to go 24 hours with oxygen.  He has to perk up some more.  However, after seeing these pictures, we ALL know it’s not going to take too long!!!


Please keep praying!

I love you all.

My baby boy is sick.  He is sick, sick.  In fact, he’s sick enough to be inpatient at CHOA Scottish Rite.  He has RSV with pneumonia on top of it.  We are certain he’s going to get well, we just hope it’s real fast.  Just pray my sweet boy doesn’t need oxygen for much longer and we get home soon.  More later.

Horses, Horses Everywhere

First, before I get into this post….

Happy Birthday Aaja!!!!!!

We love you so much, and we hope your birthday was very special.  Please accept my apologies for me taking so long to tell you.


Josh and his favorite Aunt Ashley!!!


Mimi and Maggie….I love this picture!


Maggie’s petting one of the barn cats!

Today, we went to a horse farm to celebrate OletaKate’s 4th birthday!!  It was freezing.  What happened to the beautiful weather we had three days ago?  The part was so much fun.  I just wish we could have stayed longer.  However, when my babies’ lips started turning purple. I knew it was time to go.  They were VERY mad at me for taking them home though. 


Evie’s so amazed!


He can climb through these rails….


Josh loves the horses!


All Evie wanted to do was watch the horses!


Miss Maggie’s a true cowgirl sitting on the fence!

I do think I have found an activity Evie’s going to love.  She didn’t get to pet or ride the horses today, but I promised her I’ll take her back soon to see the horses again.  It was amazing to see her response.  She was in love.  I’m going to find some way to take her, and only her, back to see the horses soon.  I think it will be a fun way to get to spend some special time with her.


Here’s the birthday girl!


OletaKate is loving riding her horse!





It was fun to see family and friends at the party.  All of the kids are growing up way too fast!


I think Josh is too big to be picked up by OletaKate now!


Josh and the barn cat are playing hide and seek!

I love you all.


Five Question Friday And Dirt


My Little Life
Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then c’mon back and link up (grab the code too, if you’d like!!). I would love, love, LOVE it if you’d link back to me, Mama M., the nut job behind the fun that is Five Question Friday!

No blog? That’s alright!! Just answer the questions in the comments of anyone’s blog along the way…this is a fun, easy way to get to know your fellow bloggers!

Questions for Friday, 3/12: (Thanks to Erica, Erin, Renee, Pam, and me (I’m dying to know the bed making thing…) for their question suggestions! Wanna be linked in a future 5QF? Mosey on over here, to my community, and offer up your best questions!)

1. How much time do you spend on the computer a day?

Way too much some days.  Other days, virtually none.   Thank goodness for my dear husband who got me the Motorola Blur.  At least I can always check my email!

2. Will you pay for your children’s college or raise them to pay for their own way?

We already have a 529b for each child (anyone want to contribute?!?!?), but I don’t anticipate being able to pay for all of their college.  I wish we could, however that is probably not possible.  I paid for my own college, sp I know they’ll be fine.

3. Have you ever been in a car accident?

Yeah…five months to the day after I turned 16.  It was rough, and it totaled my car……

4. What is your favorite book?

Books?  What are those?  I used to read, and when I did I loved all of the Vince Flynn books.

5. Do you make your bed everyday?

Make my bed?  Why would I do that?  I’m just going to get back into it!

On to my precious kids!

Daddy taught the kids a bad habit!  He taught them to play in the dirt!  Needless to say, every time I take them outside all they want to do is play in the dirt!

Some days I figure if you can’t beat them, join them!!!!!


Yes. they want to cross over….in their new spring clothes :(


Here comes Miss Evie!


Josh and Maggie are just playing with the Georgia red clay!


Josh has now crossed over!


Maggie is trying her balancing act in the dirt!


How fun!


Gotta love the dirt!


Boys….enough said!


Evie and Josh are exploring the dirt mountain!


Can you imagine how dirty the kids were after this?  Ughh!


Sweet, dirty Evie!

I love you all.
