4 years ago today......

Our little boy ..................... turned 4 today!!

The theme of his party was dragons.... so the cake was a dragon cake by Grandma Mary, Thank you Grandma Mary your the best!

He recieved a call from Geoffrey the Giraffe from Toy's R Us thismorning and was all excitted that Geoffrey wished him a Happy Birthday! This is the first year John "gets" that it is HIS day. So today he would say, "Tooo day is MY Bithday, Tooday!" I write out the today part like that because he emphasis the too part. Very cute. We had a little bowling party on Sunday it is our new thing to do after church. The kids love it and it is some fun family time together. So we had a couple of friends come and wish John a happy birthday.

Happy Birthday John. As I always tell him, "You are my ray of sunshine!", " You make me happy, all the time"

Happy 4th Birthday son!

What a woman! Tammy Trent

As many of you know I am a long time fan of Tammy Trent. She is a "little known" Christian artist, well on her way of becoming "mainstream". I had the priveledge of meeting her in person when Derrick and I had been married for a year. It's funny because Derrick and I got to a peak inot the life that Tammy and her (late) husband had together. We had a misunderstanding early in the relationship, but did get it sorted out. These two were absolutely in love, and just perfect for one another. Trent (She took her husbands first name as part of her stage name) was an amazing man, and before his untimely death Derrick was talking to him about every other week. Trent died while they were celebrating their 10 year anniversary in Jamaica. 9/10 Yes it was one day before the attacks on the US. Tammy was stuck in a foreign country for over a week, thankfully her fatherin law caught the last plane to leave for Jamaica right before the attacks happened. So she was able to have someone there with her.

She is truly an insperation to me, for what she has been through ~ her journey is still long, but she is in the fight.

She is on the cover of Today's Christian woman on sale now. She has two books out as well, both are wonderful books about tragedy and overcoming all obstacles.

Sick (and tired) ~ remember that from Bill Cosby?~

It is so hard when your kids get sick. This past weekend (and still now) John and Josie came down with something. Poor Josie couldn't breathe through her nose, and it just ran and ran. John, well he started barking like a seal. For those with out kids it is the tell tale sign of I think it is called croup, I get croup and whooping cough confused. It's a lovely sound, coming from a child literally like a seal barking. So today they were both feeling a bit better. But still not the best. They rested alot today, and hopefully tomorrow will be feeling better.

The fun thing about kids when they don't feel well, is that they want nothing but hugs and cuddles! So I cherish the time spent on the couch!

That is all for now ~ more updates later.

Here is a fun photo from not too long ago~ I think around Christmas, Grandma Scilla (as the kids call her) got a new camera and we were happy to make silly faces for her!

A Moment made for a camera!

John and Josie were both in a "photographic" and "lovey"mood yesterday. I took full advantage and snapped off some fun photos of them both. This one was the best I thought. Look at those eyes! Beautiful, just beautiful!
