Nine years......

Today Mike and I have been married for nine years. Wow, that just seems like a long time. However, the years have really flown by. We have had nine years of laughter, arguements, diapers, bottles, tears, prayers, (lots of prayers), and I would not trade a moment of it. Though our life is quite busy with three children, our church, the kids school, and my school, it is just "another day in paradise." I have been reminded of this lately because of the close family and friends who are going through trials at this time. I am reminded daily that I am so unworthy of the blessings that God has given me. I am just thankful for each and everyday that God allows me to spend in "paradise." Is it always easy??? Heavens No!!! It is a lot of work keeping up "paradise," but the end result is worth the trouble. I hope to have many more days with my family. I do not know what the future holds, but I do know who holds the future. Thankfully, it is NOT me! hahahaha.

Forecast: Light Dusting to an 1"

O.k., so maybe I will never hear that forecast for Albany, LA but it is appropriate for my blog title. You see, I was sitting with my almost 3 week old daughter and I decided to comb her massive amount of hair. As I started combing, i noticed a few "flakes." I decided to keep combing and see what happened. Needless to say I was shocked to find a head FULL of white flakes. It looked like she was outside in a blizzard!! I tried so hard to get a picture of it, but the camera did not pick up the small blizzard going on in her hair. You will just have to use your imagination. I know this is normal for newborns, but it was so cute to acutally see. She is still doing great. She sleeps so good for us at night. We are just praying that continues. Our house looks like a Babies R Us storeroom. Baby stuff everywhere!! And our home is not big. She is barely 3 weeks old, and she is already taking over!!! Oh well, we would not have it any other way.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.....

My sisters and niece came to visit with us this weekend. We had a great time. It was one of those rare beautiful days in Louisiana. Ya know, not too hot, not too cold. We decided to let the kids blow some bubbles. They had the best time. The little one pictured above would be my cutie pie niece Ariana. She is two years old....need I say more???? You know how two year olds rotten as they are cute. We had a great visit, but the poor boys were out-numbered 6 to 2. I bet they are glad to have less estrogren in the house.

Throw me something mister....

So during all of the preparations for the new baby, Mardi Gras did come and go. The kids' school had their annual mardi gras parade. The kindergarten class actually puts on the parade, and the pre-k, 1st, and 2nd grades catch all of the goodies. Above are some of the pics from this years parade. The kids had a blast!

A New Adventure

So we are seven days into this new adventure. Boy has it been interesting. Our beautiful baby started off 9 pounds 9 ounces, but quickly dropped to 8 pounds 8 ounces thanks to breastfeeding troubles. So we have made the switch once again to formula. She was born with a slight heart murmur (spelling?), but the doctors said that it would close on its own. Today, at her check up ,the doctor said it was no longer there. He could no longer hear it. God is good!!! Abigail is like a little momma to her. Elijah want to kiss her ALL of the time. He is too cute. He also sings songs to her. Well, songs that he makes up. He is very proud of his little sister. Who wouldn't be? She is gorgeous! I hope to post more at a later time, but there is an odor coming from that gorgeous little one the requires my attention.
