Just a ♪

Just dropping by the blog to let you know that all is okay.

Leia and I have been not feeling awesome the last few days. We both had doctor visits today. And both of us have ear infections :(  this is the 2nd ear infection in a month for Leia since we've started seeing the ENT. So, today, they decided to schedule Leia to have tubes put in.

I really hope the tubes help her as much as they helped Dakota. He had tubes put in when he was 11 months old.

My dad is doing great. He's getting used to being  homebound. I'm amazed at Dad's recovery!! Thank you, God!

Also, We've been busy lately...doing yard work in preparation for Leia's 1st Birthday. And then I looked at the weather report and it's a 70% chance on rain for that specific day...go figure!! but our backyard is all spiffy looking :)

The Siblings

The one positive about my dad's being in the hospital. All of my siblings have come into town to see dad and to help out mom.
It was nice getting us all together.

There's 8 children in all and most have spouses. In addition to this is 13 grandchildren!! WOW!

In Florida

Im in Florida for right now. The hubby is holding down the fort in Texas. My dad is currently in the hospital. He's had a few heart cath's done and that has worked for the time being. But now, dad needs open heart bypass surgery. And that is what's happening on Monday. Please pray for my dad. Pray for the doctors and the surgeons.

Welcoming September

It's September already!!?!?!?!?!  
And we are on the 2nd week of school. Both kiddos are doing great. Dakota enjoys being at the elementary campus. The only thing he requests is that I don't take so long to pick him up each day. Which I can handle that most of the time. I just have to get to the pick up line 30 minutes before school lets out :S YES!! these elementary parents are crazy about getting their kids. The line is backed up at 30 minutes before last bell.
Lily is doing good. She tells me that she "walked all the way down the hallway to the cafeteria" , "played on the playground outside", and "there's boys in my class, too, Mom." Oh wow!! they start early, I tell ya.

Leia has started walking. But she still thinks that crawling is a faster means of getting from point A to point B. 

Life is going great...just starting to play Leia's 1st birthday...YES!! can you believe it?!

And I am looking forward to a short weekend away next weekend.
