Family News

We have had several things happen this week in our family. I hope I don't leave anyone out, but if I do, I'm sorry.

Mom went to the doctor this past week and had some testing done. She didn't get very good news, and without going into too much detail (which she has asked me not to share) we hope that over the next few weeks things will improve.

My Dad had surgery this past week. Nothing major just surgery on a hernia. We have checked on him a couple of times this week and he seems to be doing fine other than being a little sore. He looks like my Papa more and more each day. I can't tell you how much I miss my Papa. Dad has joined a band. His band will play at the Block Party this year. I can't wait to go and listen to him. This will take me back to my childhood. I love to watch him play.

I was told that my sister will be having another baby in October of this year. I always tell everyone that we have nothing but nieces, but the truth is we have one nephew and now one on the way. I don't get to see my nephew and I'm sure I won't get to see the new baby. I can't tell you how disappointed I am with my sister. I wanted so much to believe that she had finally grown up, but again she proved me wrong. I really hope she gets her tubes tied this time and I pray each day that both of my nephews just know in their heart that there are people out there who truely love them and would give anything to be part of their lives. I pray that God will someday bring us together. God has helped me to forgive you sister.

Brayden is feeling much better. I hope he continues to get better. He is such a sweet little boy and each day I'm amazed by him. I love you Brayden.

My Love

I just want to say that I know that everyone thinks they are married to the most wonderful man, but I know that I married the best. Quentin is such a wonderful husband, father, and friend. I think that something has truely changed in our relationship. I think that God has stepped in and made me realize how lucky I truely am. I love to wake up in the morning and just look at him. I wait each day for him to call me on his breaks when he's at work (10 & 3 just like clock work). When I get off of work I rush home so that I can be here waiting on him. He is my bestfriend, my support, and my lover. He loves our children so much. I love to watch him with each of them. He can be very tough on them, but we all know it's because he loves them so much. He always tells me how much he loves me and how lucky he is to have me. He really knows how to make me feel special. I love him so much. I can't imagine what my life would have been like without him. We are so lucky we found each other. I can't thank God enough for putting Quentin in my life. Quentin is my everything.

What a week!!!!

We have had one crazy week. Between work and home I am totally exhausted and mentally worn out.

For those of you who haven't heard Brayden woke up on Thursday with blood in his urine. We took him to our family doctor. Our doctor said that he wasn't exactly sure what was causing this and in turn put him on antibiotics. I can't tell you how worried Quentin and I are. It's just such a scary thing. We will go back for another U.A. next week, unless mom and dad get nervous and take him for a second opinion (which may happen as soon as Monday). I guess we will see how things go. Say a prayer for Brayden.

Tyler only practiced on Monday & Tuesday so we have had a few days off. That's been really nice. He is doing so good. We are so proud of him. I went to my first PTO meeting this week at the middle school. I'm already signed up to work 3 football games and I haven't even paid my dues yet. I guess they really need some help. How do I get myself into these things.

Sean is growing like a weed and every day surprises us with something new. If it's not a new word then it's a new song that he's singing. He loves to watch the movie Cars and he wants to watch every time we are home.

Work has been so extremely busy, and the two guys I work with always seem to be out at the same time which means I'm there by myself to handle things. It's not that I can't handle doing 3 jobs, but when I do, I earn every penny I get paid. I guess it keeps work interesting. I'm so lucky to have my job and to work for the people that I do.

Happy Birthday!!!!

We celebrated Kaytlin's birthday today at Jump N Jive. She is 3 now. How she has grown!!!! She is such a cute little girl with lots of attitude. I can't imagine where she got that from!!!! She seemed to have a really good time. I think she got lots of gifts. We love you Kaytlin. Tyler and Brayden had just as much fun jumping as the younger kids. Sean was a little scared to jump, but I think he had fun as well.

I think the biggest surprise to the boys was the fact that Tricia was here. We didn't tell them that she was home. Just imagine their surprise when they saw her!!!! We truely miss Tricia. We are always glad to see her when she's home and really sad when she has to leave. She is such a special person and is truely doing what God wants her to do! How many of us can say that??? Not many I suspect.

On Sunday we will celebrate Kaysha's birthday. Happy 5th birthday Kaysha!!!! I can't believe how you have grown. I remember the day you were born and how beautiful you were. I watched you being born and it was a true miracle. I'm sorry that your life has been so up and down, but I think you know that you are truely loved. Mom, Kaysha, and I went to get pedicures today. Of course since Kaysha is such a Big Girl now, she also had to have the full treatment. She got her nails painted, and a pedicure. She was some hot stuff!!! We love you so much Kaysha.
