Happy Birthday

Today my little boy turned 4. He was born at 1:20 in the afternoon after 23 hours of labor. We had to have a c section but he finally made it here. After 4 days in the hospital he had to be med flighted to Baptist and we finally got to take home a completely healthy 7 day old baby boy. We were worn out and had been scared out of our minds for a little while but God truly answered all of our prayers and showed us complete peace and comfort during that scare. This little boy is my gift and blessing from God. I thank God all the time for allowing me the privilege of being his mom. There is only one other gift that tops the gift of children and that is the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross for my and your sins. How awesome the gift of children but the love God shows us is far greater than the love we can show for our own children. How mind blowing it is at times and I am so glad I get to receive it.

Blaine in the hospital...

We had an interesting weekend that landed us in the ER in Ft. Worth, TX.
We went for a visit and to help my sister with the process of her move.
Blaine woke up Saturday with high fever and croup. It got worse as the day went on and we went to an urgent care clinic that sent us to the ER. We did have a great time with family even though we had a few scary moments . I am actually glad it happened there with the support of my sister than here by myself in our town. I wouldn't take my sick fish to our ER. We are thankful that he is now on the mend. He also had an ear infection. Now big brother has a cough and says his throat hurts. Hopefully he is past the age to get a bad case of croup. We hope to never see this virus again.

We are coaching a tball team this year. Brenden got his uniform in yesterday and couldn't wait to put it on. My little boy is playing his first organized sport! It only took him 2 practices to run the bases by himself. He would hit and play the out field just wouldn't run the bases. He loves it now that he sees how much fun it is. I am so glad he loves it.

Early birthday present

Brenden got an early present for his birthday. Barry is on call so much he didn't know when he would be able to put it together so we chose the only free weekend for like 2 months and let Brenden have it early.

It took a few times for Blaine to warm up to it but he likes it now. And Brenden loved it from the start. I think I need to up my insurance on hubby though. He does flips on it and I just know he is going to hurt himself. He is no spring chicken when it comes to that sort of thing. But don't tell him I said that!

Few family pics

Texas trip...

We went to Texas to visit one of my sisters during my broinlaw's spring break. Here are lots of pics from our trip. I am sure you notice they are backwards. Bottom to top is trip order. Sorry about that. I forgot that blogger loads them backwards.

Catching up....

Here are a few pics from Feb. The boys love put put so we bought this indoor set for the house since we don't have anything close to home for them to do.
They also play with pillows everyday making forts and castles.
