What a week!!!

I can't believe that it's only Tuesday! I have had a crazy-busy week so far, but really nothing exciting to share.

I mowed the yard (or is is cut the grass?) last Monday. Big Daddy did it again on Friday. I have just finished it AGAIN today. Can you say "they spent a lot of money on grass seed and fertilize and then God sent the rain, warm temperatures and sunshine"?

We went to a bakery today and ordered Maggie's birthday cake... for her fifth birthday! I still can't believe it.

I fold LOTS of laundry and sometimes I put Ellie's pants in Maggie's stack of clean laundry. Then, I find a pair of Maggie's pants and realize that she really is that big.

We converted Ellie's crib into a toddler bed. That means that I've gotten no more than four hours of sleep the past two nights. At 2am this morning she cried out. When I went into her room she was missing. Big Daddy and I looked for a few minutes and then he found her on the couch in the living room. Pray for Mommy!

My friend A is having surgery again on Friday. She'll be having more of her bottom lip removed. Hopefully, she will be cancer free and it will NOT come back this time. The surgery is incredibly painful and she is really worrying about it. Please pray for her.

Also, my friend C that delivered a stillborn baby boy in February is having a really hard time. We don't talk a lot in person because it's really hard for her, but we email often. She is having a hard time with going about daily activities and is just trying to figure out how to make it through each day. Big sister S is having a hard time too. I can only imagine how difficult this is and I pray for her so much.

Big Daddy's going to be traveling a bunch during the rest of April. Please pray that Maggie & Ellie can survive while he's away. They are both turning into Daddy's girls and they miss him so much when he's away.

We had hoped to work outside some this past weekend but the weather didn't allow it, so our yard is in desperate need of mowing!
Praying for your friends! I can't imagine all they are going thru! Praying for you and your girls while Big Daddy is away too:)

Going through Andrew's baby clothes this past weekend brought back memories. Hard to believe they used to wear such little clothes.

When we changed Andrew's bed, our biggest battle w/ him in the beginning was getting him to go to bed and stay in the bed. After he went to sleep, he would stay in the bed.

Heavy heart for your friends but with God and support from others, they will get through it. Still tough situations.
