Olivia had a great time with Aunt Shelley today. I really appreciated it. . especially on such short notice. They even baked a cake together and Olivia enjoyed licking the beaters.

Olivia and Gus checking on the cake.

Last night, we got the most amazing surprise. I had just gotten out of the shower and I still had my hair in a towel when the doorbell rang. I didn't want to answer the door looking like that, so I asked Ryan to peek out the window and see who it was. He kinda laughed and said, "It's a van that looks like Joel and Laura's." We kinda laughed. Joel and Laura are the ones who moved to California. Ryan opened the door and there they were. . .Laura, Julia and Rebekah! I was in shock. They decided to come back home. Sadly, Joel is still working in CA where he will remain until he finds a job here. There are a lot of mixed emotions as there is still a lot of uncertainty in their lives. Please keep them in your thoughts and pray that Joel is able to return home soon.

Welcome home!!!

Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - Update

I have had the hardest time trying to figure out what to write about lately. I think it's because of an anonymous comment that I got on the blog a few weeks ago. This person stated that I was ungrateful and complained all of the time. When you try to post daily, you're going to have a lot to talk about. . .good and bad. I've always tried to post very honestly and I guess it came back to bite me. Now, I'm very hesitant on what to write so as not to be called ungrateful. I know, I shouldn't let one little comment still bother me, but it goes against everything this blog is about. I want it to be uplifting, I want it to help people and share about one of God's great miracles. Has it been a tough 2 1/2 years? Yes. Do I wish I didn't have to go through all of it? Yes. Have I struggled emotionally and physically? Yes. If I could have, I would have taken my children's place. . .I would have traded their hospital stay for my own if only I was given the chance. If only. . . .

March for Babies

March for Babies 2009

Less than 50 days left until the 2010 March for Babies. The March of Dimes means a lot to me and this will be the Olivia and Logan team's third year. We've always made quite a showing which only proves how much support we've received from so many loving people. It would mean a lot to me to have you join our team and walk with us. Whether we know each other well or need to get to know each other better, I'd love to have you join. If you can't join, consider donating a few dollars to our team. The March of Dimes spends 76 percent of the money raised on research and programs that support the health of babies. Thanks to all of you for your love and support.
