I am a stay at home mom who is trying to remain humored by the material my little girls provide me with on a daily basis.
What else? Let's see...I love sneaking quiet moments with my hubby, could go antique shopping every day, and enjoy gardening...even pulling the weeds!
I have recently been diagnosed with a couple of brain tumors-an acoustic neuroma and a meningioma. Thankfully both are benign, just large and not very fun to remove. I haven't blogged for a while, but am reviving it to post prayer requests and updates on my health in a manner that friends can access easily. Thanks for following along!
Don't get me wrong, we did our share of eating and lounging. We went to my in-laws in East Texas, where I am especially spoiled by the girl's "memmy"...and am not expected to do a whole lot. The key word surrounding time spent there is "relaxing".
It was extra special this Thanksgiving because my sister and niece joined us. Lily's two second cousins that live near there weren't around this holiday, so it was so fun for her and Avery to get a chance to play.
We spent a good amount of time at the elementary school's playground, where it is questionable if the kids had as much fun as the adults. I'm still sore from our monkey bar challenge...where I was clearly the loser. Way to go, Kelly! Jerry, your attempt doesn't count.
We have so many things to be thankful for, but the one thing that we'll be remembering for years to come is about our little jader-tater.
On November 27, 2008, at 16 months and 3 weeks old, Jade took her first true and independent steps. Praise the Lord! Mamma's back is rejoicing! I didn't get video or pictures, but don't think that isn't on my list of things to do today. Check back later.
