Catching up...

We had a wonderful time in Arkansas as always, a busy time but a good time.  Cain turned 10 years old so there was a birthday party.  He is getting so big.  He had a wonderful time, he received several nice presents and a hand full of money.  His dad and Jan got him a notebook computer, he was so excited.  Here are a few pictures:

One night Cain played football, well unfortunately he does not get to play a lot this year.  It is 5th and 6th graders and he is in 5th, but boy watch out next year, he will be ready for them!  Other than that we really did not do a lot.  I did some hand sewing while we were there.  Eden Jade was invited to a Toy Story themed birthday party.  She decided she wanted to be Jessie, at least it wasn't the horse or Buzz.  It wasn't real hard just dressed up a white shirt and some jeans.  Just for the record I love to sew but I hate hand-sewing and everything was done by hand.  It was well worth it though, especially when a little girl looked up at me and smiled that special smile and said, "Oh Granny this is so cool, Thank you so much."  Yeah, that did it the fingers quit hurting and I never thought about it again.   She looked real cute.  Here are a few pictures, you knew I would have pictures, right?  lol.

Well it looks like they have finally decided what to do for my daughter.  She is having a pacemaker put in on the 29th of this month.  Please continue to remember her in prayer for a speedy recovery.  Also, that she will get back her strength and start feeling better.  She is getting so tired.  She will be able to return to work after a few days but will not be able to use her left arm or drive.  She will wear a sling to remind her not to use it, I remember that is the hard part.  Our plans are we will be there for the surgery, then Stan will come home and I will stay to help my daughter, then later in the month he will come and get me.  Please remember us in prayer also, this will be the first time since we married that we will be apart, I am really going to miss him.  You do what you gotta do though, and my daughter needs me!

My hubby is so sweet, he knows how I enjoy the internet, and my blogging, unfortunately we do not have internet in Arkansas, so we are getting a hotspot from Verizon for me to take.  After I return home we will then cut our DSL off and use the hotspot here at home also.  He is soooo sweet!

I think I have rambled long enough.

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song I will praise him."   Psalm 28:7
