Bloggy break!

Hello to you all. We pray this finds you well, or at least better than I am. I have two bulging disks in my lower back so I am officially out of commission. Fortunately I have an amazing husband who just happens to laid off and a competent chiropractor so I hope to be back soon. If you get a minute please say a prayer, Jeremy could use me back ASAP.
Happy day,

Not ME MONDAY is usually hosted by MckMama but because she is with Stellan (praying for you my dear) we have all teamed up and are doing it STELLAN STYLE TODAY! Emily is hosting so click here to stop on by and check out everyone else's
I have not had the same post up Praying for Stellan for over a week and just keep on changing what it says. Nope, not me.
I have not checked almost every hour for a tweet or a post over at MckMama's blog for an update on Stellan. Nope, not me.
I did not click over to her friend (my bloggy friend) Carrie's blog in an attempt to find more information one Stellan's condition. Nope, not me. (Carrie is MckMama's in-real-life friend and she is helping her and her family during this time. THANK YOU!)
While over at Carrie's site I did not fine her tweet about Sage's family and completely loose it. Nope not me.
That is all. I continue to pray for Stellan.
Happy day.

I just realized that my header is croooooked. How annoying. I am trying to get a new photo of the kids. This one is a few lost teeth ago.
Happy Spring! Have a wonderful weekend.

Would I being willing to try and review a product?!?

Absolutely! Patiently awaiting the laundry soap from Ecostoreusa to try and give a review! Oh, I sure will let you know how I feel about it!

While we were gone... Santa in March

He gave them all a "naughty/nice coin" . L would not put hers down. This is how we found her later that evening, the coin is in her left hand.
While we were away we had the privilege to go to Jeremy's aunt and uncle's house. As you can see as much as we told the kids he was "uncle Mike" they truly thought he was "Santa". It's okay, that is his profession. He plays right along. They are still talking about it.

I'm baaaaaack!

As you can see I have been away from blogging for a bit. Jeremy's grandpa passed away so we went and spent a week away with his family. The neat thing about it is that we had just went to see him in January (his children *they had six daughters) threw him a 90th birthday party and we went to that. (if they would not have had the party we were going at the end of March when the boys are on spring break). He had just turned 90 and actually passed away in his wife's arms (they were married for 67 years, talk about amazing). We were able to go and be there for the funeral and the cemetery part. He had spent 20 years in the Navy so he had full military honors. That was amazing. David Alexander St. Dennis (his wife Marge) and many great grand children.
D and great grandpa.

Jeremy's grandpa, our children's great grandpa. He had six daughters (all whom are married), 14 grand children, 24 great grand children. Pretty awesome. We are home now and trying to get back into the swing of things. Jeremy is on nights (hey, it's a paycheck), the boys are back in school and we have our sweet extra. I have the opportunity to do a review coming up here on some laundry soap. I can't wait to give it a try. Stay tuned!!

Happy day.

Guess who got a hair cut!?!

Post bath. She wont wear a cape so she was itchy.

The back (before bath), yes, she is running from me.

Even wet, it lays so nice. And it still has a bit of wave to it.

The back is slightly stacked due to all of her thick hair, and it angles down to the front. This picture is after her bath, it is dry by now, like I said, lays so nice. (yes, that is the same shirt but it is not, she actually has three of the same shirt...)
I love it! She looks like a totally different little girl! We cut four inches to be exact! Thanks Robyn!

He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge. Proverbs 14:26

Touched my soul

Recently I was made aware of the Mary Madeline Project, and it touched me deep in my soul. The work they do is incredible and made possible by people who so generously donate their wedding (and formal) gowns and dresses. I checked out the site, honestly had no idea that something like this existed. http://www.marymadelineproject.org/

Check it out, look around, (on the top there are options). You can see the work these gracious volunteers do. Incredible work if you ask me. All of us know someone or are that someone who have lost a baby or babies to infant loss. It just really made me feel like someone cares when I saw these amazing works of art that are made to comfort these parents and families. I am not at the point where I can donate my gown. I have always wanted it made into a baptismal gown for my children but since they are all baptized (the boys all in the same little navy suit and L in our families heirloom gown) I am still wanting it made for their children. I just really think that it would be amazing to see that happen. Someday, I may find a talented woman willing to do it for me. In the mean time, I continue to pray for these wonderful people that use their talents and for the people who so unselfishly give up their cherished gowns and dresses for those gifts from God.

Thank you for taking the time to check this out. In my opinion, it is incredible.

Happy day.

♥ Jump rope for heart ♥

Hey everyone, my son H is doing Jump rope for heart again this year for the American Heart Association. If you are willing/able to donate ANY amount for him and his school, 100% goes to the AHA. We would really appreciate it. Thanks for considering.
Happy day,
