Lucy and her Dr. Reinisch

I was just trying to get one good photo of the two of them together.....just one.

Maybe she needs a little help.......

Oh, THERE it is!!!

Upcoming doctor visit

This week we will head to Chicago (Lucy and I) to consult with Dr. Reinisch...he's in the 'area' for a conference.  Since he is on this half of the United States....we will make the short trip up to Chicago so he can see Lucy in person! 

I'll just say it's not looking good for Lucy's left ear.  We would appreciate every single prayer.  God knows the situation.  We have prayed that this entire journey would be guided by Him. 

There are so many things I don't understand and I know it's not for me to understand but to trust.  Be still and know.

So, I've been really trying to focus on being still and knowing. 

We just pray that God continues to be seen through this entire journey....through my Lucy....His Lucy! 

I'll keep you posted as we learn more! 

Much love!

Young Achiever's

My biggest girl was nominated by her teacher for the Young Achiever's program.  Keegan was pretty excited!  (as she should be)

The Young Achiever's program highlights kids in the local schools that are a role model for other kids, helping in the community, working hard in school, etc.  So we were beyond thrilled for Keegan!  In our area Holifield Photography holds a photo session for the "achiever" to be photographed.   Then there is a "selection" meeting for us to determine what photos we want shown on the "board" for display!  Keegan's board will be displayed at Fayette Mall for a couple of weeks and it will also go on display at her school in the fall!  I'm a proud momma!

A couple of weeks ago I took Keegan for her photo session and today I went for the selection photos!  Dang it!  All the photos are awesome!  They did an amazing job...of course, they had a beautiful subject to photograph!

Here's the results of her session!  (her board will have 3 photos and biography...I'll post that when it's complete!)

First set Keegan borrowed some glass frames from our precious friend's at Simpson Optical...she was going for the 'librarian' look!  Keegan wants to grow up and be the keeper of books!  Very nice!

So stinkin' pretty!  This girl is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside! 

Keegan had the BEST time having her picture taken!  Her photographer made her feel very special!  What a fun day!

Is it me?  Or does she look 15?

Now, time for the "art" pictures!  My girl loves to do anything art related! 


Can you see the picture Keegan drew and colored?  She did it specifically for the photo session!

Oh, let's just face it....she's gorgeous!  Sigh.  My baby girl is growing up!!

I love you Keegan Shea...inside and out!

Happy Valentine's Day (I'm a little late....)

The love bugs always make an appearance on Valentine's Day! 

They are usually waiting on the kids to come downstairs in the morning!

Everyone was quite excited!

The kids got a little candy....the big kids got "Good Works" bracelets...the kind that wrap around your arm 411 times....they all received different colored bracelets that have a difference bible verse on them!  Very cool!

Little bitty received a new game..."Spot It Jr."'s so cute and very fun! 

All the kids had Valentine parties at school....Lucy came home with a little "something" in a goodie bag.....I'll let you guess what it was.....

I hope you had a fabulous heart day!  Much love was flying around here!

Yep. She's 9. sigh

So, today Miss Romy turned 9.  Man, where does the time go?  Seriously.
Just yesterday she was a little bitty thing and today she's half grown! 
Birthday mornings always start with "breakfast of your choice"....and Romy wanted I tried to make one that looked like her.....well, sort of.


We headed out for church and then lunch at our ole' faithful place....Smashing Tomato!

Romy had asked for donut cake for her special day!  Now, THAT I can do!

Just a pretty platter and 3 dozen donuts!  Yum-o!

She seemed pretty happy with the outcome!

So, now we have two 9 year olds in the house....and in 10 days we'll have an 11 year old....shew! 

So blessed! 

Happy birthday Romy...we love you and all your wildness!  Mwah!
