I was so thankful for this weekend to get here. Although I only worked three days this week, I feel like it was an eternity!

Tonight we went to Easley to hang out with the Wood clan. It felt good to get my hands on li'l P again! He is getting so big. What a cutie pie! I hope they do not mind me posting the picture below. I thought it was a GREAT family pic, so I wanted to share.....
Not too much is happening this weekend. Scott is taking advantage of his new membership to the golf course tomorrow. JP and I were originally going to spend the day at the lake. Now, I think we've decided to head over to Megan's house and let JP and Erin (AKA honey) swim together. Not sure where JP picked up that nickname, but he calls Erin "honey." It is VERY cute!

Well, I hope every one enjoys the weekend as much as I plan to!

My baby's not lookin' like such a baby anymore...

I just thought I would post some pictures of my handsome man. He's growin' up fast!

I do not have time to post much. It's very late and JP, Scott and I are heading to bed. I wanted to let everyone know that my friend, Brian passed away yesterday (Friday) afternoon. I appreciate every one's prayers and concern for this family.

I probably will not be posting for a little while. I am spending a lot of time with Megan and the kids. Please continue to lift them up in prayer!

Thank you.

Still here...

Okay, I promise I have not stopped posting!! I have tried TWICE this week to upload pics of JP and MacKenzie. It takes FOREVER and then the "This page cannot be displayed" sign pops up! It's so frustrating. Anyway, I will continue to try! Don't give up on me.

The Relay for Life was fun. I was worried about how Colton would do, given his situation. He actually did great. I was the basketcase! Watching him throw a football with my dad and Scott literally broke my heart. I cried on the sidelines. Megan, Colton, Erin and I decorated luminary bags in honor of Brian. When the lights went out, we lit candles and put them in the bags. I made my way across the field with JP to where Colton was with my parents. He was sitting on the wall beside the bags that were lit for his dad. Once again, I LOST IT! So, I am worth nothing to him as far as support goes! I guess if nothing else, he's able to see that we love his dad and are hurting right along with his family.

Life just isn't fair.

This Friday is the Relay for Life. Scott, Colton, JP and I will be heading out to Eastside High to join in the festivities! I would encourage ANY ONE who has been touched by Cancer, or know someone who has, to participate in an area Relay. It's fun and all of the money goes to the American Cancer Society. I will try and remember my camera this time to post pictures!

Thank goodness it's Friday!! I LOVE, LOVE the weekends! Tonight was fun....we met Terry, "Shanny" and the kids (including the newest addition to our group, li'l P) for dinner and went back to hang out at their house. Tomorrow's Shannon's birthday...HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, girlfriend!! We love you!

Tomorrow morning, JP and I are picking up Megan's son, Colton and heading to the lake! I am excited. It's been a long week. I plan on having great pictures to share when we return. We have a fun, "adventurous" day planned.

Hope everyone has a great Mother's Day weekend!!

Trauma: Life in the ER

These aren't the greatest pictures. We had our first little traumatic experience last night. Scott was keeping JP while I was at a class for work. He was climbing on the couch....he missed and cracked his forehead on the floor! You can just imagine the blood on his face, the couch, Scott's clothes...etc.! By the time I arrived home, my parents had helped to clean him up. The cut is actually very small, it was just deep. We made the collective decision to "doctor" it up ourselves. It probably needed a couple of stitches. At least we thought it did. Today it looks MUCH better!

I'm sure this is the first of MANY!!! Welcome to the world of boys, right!

It's funny how God works sometimes. I haven't felt too well for the majority of the weekend. JP has been his usual self...ACTIVE!!! I always enjoy being with him, but I would have LOVED to have had ONE minute to myself! I looked forward to today (Sunday) all weekend. I was going to rest. JP was going to come home from church and take his normal 2 hour nap. Well, naturally, because I had this planned out it didn't happen. In fact, he didn't sleep at all. So, all day long I have pouted and whined about how tired I am and how I don't feel well. I have been short tempered and my patience are shot!

Feel sorry for me yet?! I did....until my friend called. You know, the one who's husband is dying from Cancer. We talked for a while. She was giving me the update on him and said that they would be making the decision this week to move him to Hospice House. It's probably not going to be long now. The majority of his day is spent sleeping. He can't stand or sit up anymore and he doesn't make eye contact with anyone when he is awake. I'm not going to go into anymore details because it is very upsetting to talk about. I'm crying as I type.

There are two reasons why I am posting this. I usually talk to Megan every day. HOWEVER, it's normally in the mornings on the way to work or on my lunch break. I am convinced that God had her call me because He knew I was drowning in self-pity and I needed to STOP! Here are the two things He reminded me of today: 1) THIS EARTH IS NOT MY HOME! I am not going to be here forever! Praise God! Often times when Brian is lying in his hospital bed in the living room, he will point up to the ceiling. He KNOWS where he's heading. I've been too busy being selfish today to look up! This life is am I spending it?? 2) I've been upset all day because I am tired. Tired. Not sick, not bed-ridden, not dying. Tired. GET OVER IT!!!

Please continue to pray for Megan and the kids. I didn't say Brian, because I don't feel like he's the one who needs it. I'm almost envious of him. He's Heaven bound. He may be sick for the moment. But that's it, just a moment. Soon, he will be better off than the rest of us.

Thanks for letting me unload my emotions on you. The moral of the post? I AM BLESSED!

Any ideas?

I am sorry that I have not posted all week. I have to admit, I am COMPLETELY in a funk when it comes to blog posts. I do not have any recent cute pics of little man, we have not done anything OVERLY exciting, so I am open for any ideas for posts that you might have! Just shoot me a comment if your creative juices are flowing more freely than mine!! I need a jump start!
Our week has been slow, but nice. I am more than thankful to see the weekend! Scott and I had dinner at home tonight and then took JP to the park. We had a nice time. Tomorrow my plan is to be lazy. Scott is playing golf, so JP and I may head in to downtown to stroll if the weather cooperates. We are heading over to "GaGa's" for the evening to play with KiKi...that should be fun.
Well, I hope everyone is doing well! HOPEFULLY you will come up with some interesting blog topics for me and I can get on the ball!!! hehehehe
