Aidan's Baby Shower

Over the weekend, Aidan was blessed by love of friends and many gifts for his soon to be arrival. I have to say I had the best hostesses. Tracye she is the ultimate party planner and made party favors, decorations, and sign. Kellie I have found out is cupcake queen, she makes the best cupcakes!! If you don't believe me ask anyone that attended. Mona was wonderful at helping and serving. Salinda who ended up missing as she got sick, but I know she was there in spirit! Ryan who just got of work came and picked up Abigail from the shower, so he got to take a photo-op with us! It was a wonderful blessed baby shower and I feel very blessed! I have the most amazing friends! Thank you for all the blessings wrote in the journal, support, and for the wonderful gifts. I am telling you, Aidan is going to be one of best dressed little guys! I know there were a few that were not able to attend and of course family because of distance, but I know you were also there in spirit. I love each and every one of you! Thank you for being a part of my life and I look forward to Aidan meeting ya'll soon!! xoxo

Finally well....

Just as Abigail got over the flu she got sick again late Sunday night. So off to the doc we went and this time I wasn't wasting any time. She was diagnosed with upper respiratory infection and had a sore throat and ear ache. Oh how I hate seeing my baby girl in misery. The doc put her back on antibiotics which I was really reluctant to do, because I hate having to take medication when I believe in so much of natural healing. But Abigail has been sick and not eating well so her immunity I am sure is way down. I have now started having her take vitamins/omega's, and probiotics to help build back her immunity and to balance her system back to good healthy balance since she is taking antibiotics. Hopefully now we will all stay well! She did make a quick recovery and we are now looking forward to celebrating my baby shower this weekend to bless the soon to be arrival of Aidan.

Today Abigail toured Faith Academy where she will be attending preschool this fall. I am very excited and really like how patient, caring, and loving they are to the children. I just know that this is the right choice!

Since she is well and it is nice outside today, we enjoyed a little time outside.

Recently I got a Bible for Abigail. Here is a picture of Abigail with here new Bible. It really is a great Bible for toddlers, pictures with an easy to read story. I highly recommend it, Read With Me Bible for Toddlers.

Ahh we survived the flu at our house, at least so far! I have been lucky not to get it and Ryan too and I hope it stays that way. Ab tested positive for Flu B earlier this week. When she started getting sick I started myself on some natural products/herb~ Elderberry and oscillococcinum (which my sis in law recommended, she is very knowledgeable when it comes to herbs and natural healing) and a little praying never hurts. Plus lots of hand washing after contacting Abigail, which I felt kind of bad about, but this pregnant mama doesn't want to get sick. I felt so bad for my little girl, never has she been that sick and seemed to be so miserable, it took a lot out of her for a couple days. Her fever did break finally Thursday, so Friday we were able to get back out and about. Enjoying lunch with a friend, which mama needed after being cooped up and being nurse. With Ryan working so much it gets hard for me to get rest, but when he was home Wednesday he was super dad, taking care of Abigail so I wouldn't have to be in too much contact with her and while he was taking care of her during that day, she was the worst, that was the day she decided to puke (sorry for the details), but as I say better him them me ;)
Yesterday she was back to herself, running around, eating, and playing mama to her babies (as you can see in the pic). Ryan took this cute pic of her just before bedtime.

Opening Valentine Presents

Yes this child is so lucky, her grandparents love her. She has received two boxes in the mail of presents. She enjoys every present she receives, when she gets clothes she says "cute", books, crayons, she says "wow", jewelry box and barrettes, again she is saying "cute". I know she is very thankful for her gifts, she certainly enjoys them. She also enjoys receiving cards, she calls them books and collects them in piles, sometimes she colors on them, other times we read them over and over. Thank you family!!

Valentine Cookies!!

In celebration of Valentine's Day, Abigail and I made some Valentine Cookies!!

I am so excited that my hubby will have the weekend off, that never happens. So we have a fun date weekend planned. Saturday night is fundrasier dinner & auction for Faith Academy and Sunday night is the Valentine meal and entertainment at our church. Couldn't ask for more. Very grateful, thank you God for all the blessings!!

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
It is not self-seeking, nor easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongdoing.
It does not delight in evil,
But rejoices in the truth.
It always protects, trusts, hopes, and preserves.
There is nothing love cannot face;
There is no limit to its faith, hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things that last forever:
Faith, hope, and love;
But the greatest of them all is love.
-- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Beautiful poem

Friendship Garden

Plant three rows of peas:
Peas of mind…Peas of heart…Peas of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
Squash gossip…Squash indifference…
Squash grumbling…Squash selfishness.

Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful…Lettuce be kind…
Lettuce be happy…Lettuce love one another.

No garden should be without turnips:
Turnip for service when needed.
Turnip to help one another.
Turnip the music and dance.

A garden must have some thyme:
Thyme for God…Thyme for study…Thyme for prayer…
Thyme for rest…Thyme for fun…Thyme for yourself.

Water freely with patience
and cultivate with love.
There will be much fruit in your garden
Because you reap what you sow.
