Wow that was fast!

The baby furniture is sold and gone. We purchase his new bedroom suite yesterday and it will be delivered this week. If you ever need to sell something go to this site. We got 2 calls on it in less than 2 hours. One call was in less than 30 minutes and they drove from Bryant to get it. It is free to post stuff and you don't have to put your info on the page unless you want too. They can just email you through the site.

Baby furniture

We are back

from Gurdon AR. We spent part of last week at Barry's grandma's house. We got home Friday night. Blaine was running fever when we got home and yesterday. He is better today but Brenden started running fever last night and still has some this morning.
My sister and her family will be here this afternoon. They are fleeing the hurricane.

Just wanted to let everyone know Barry's grandfather past away this evening.

This is a picture of Barry's grandparents and Brenden. Let me tell you it is hard to get a good picture of the 2 of them. Peggy is always moving or talking! Gee a guess that is where Andra gets it. :o)

Our family

Barry's grandfather was taken to the ER in Arkadelphia Wednesday. He was in a diabetic coma. He later stabilize and was doing better. They had started him on thick liquids because he was having trouble with his swallowing and speech which we still have not gotten an answer to why that happened. Yesterday before Andra and Danny were leaving to come home he made a serious turn for the worse. His oxygen level this morning is in the 60s and the only option at this point would be a ventilator and he doesn't want that. Along with him being a diabetic he has COPD. They tested his lung function and they are functioning at 20%. Andra is an only child with only a few people left in her extended family. This is extremely hard for her. Barry is also very close to his grandparents. As a child he spent his entire summer vacations with them. Saying all this if you would take a minute and pray for our family. Thank you so much. When there are any updates I will post them.

Not an easy task.

Whenever the vacuum comes out so do these 2 toys. Not very easy to get the job done with both under foot. Very amusing though. You just have to have a since of humor in situations like these or life would just be miserable.

A yucky week with lots of rain.

Our weather this week was not so good for playing outside, so we brought out the arts and crafts. I am not worried about the mess. It is all washable. This was Blaine's first time to actually get to participate. He wasn't sure at first and yes some did go in the mouth but once he got it was all over.

Sorry it has been so long!

I haven't had anything that interesting to post. I did realize how good my three year old is at PS2 and Wii! Which we own both of them now! I guess boys are born knowing how to play those things. He picked up a DS and played it without any instruction. He just watched one of his cousins and did it.

Blaine's favorite thing!

We do let Blaine have suckers and popsicles from time to time even against my own better judgement. I hate the mess and seriously try to limit the sugar intake of both boys. Easier said than done at certain times of the year though.

So to eliminate the mess part we put Blaine in the tub and let him go to town with which ever we give him. He really doesn't get very much of the popsicle though. He likes to dip it into the water and watch the water change color.

Preschool water day.

The kids had a blast at our Preschool water day. We had it at a church member's home. Thanks so much for the people that let us borrow their water toys and to the person whose home we invaded! Brenden came out of his shell big time by the end of the party. He decided it would be fun to jump off the top of the slide in the the pool of water down below. I am guessing this thing is about 10 ft tall. Yep my son. Everyone looked to me and said did you see Brenden and there I was sitting there with my mouth open in total shock! Crazy thing! The little boy that Brenden is sitting with is his "best buddy" as they call each other. They have grown up together in Sunday School and will be in the same class this fall for Preschool.
