Sorry I have been missing in action again. Last week was a long week. My Grandmother passed on Saturday night. Mom and Angie came from GA for mom to stay with the kids and Angie to go with Doug and I to MS. We were in MS until Wednesday. Thursday a prospective Children's Minister came in for the church to meet and I was busy with that the rest of the week. In the mist of that I have been dealing with allergies/sinus infection. I attempted to go to a walk in clinic on Saturday an was not able to find one that was not so full they were no longer taking anymore patients for the day. Think everyone is sick. I feel much better today. Know I have a sinus infection so guess I will call my doc in the morning and get an Rx. The kids are doing great. They are both well and only terribly spoiled from Nana being here. lol. I would not want it any other way!!!

Several weeks ago, Elijah's school had wacky tacky day for red ribbon week as part of Say No to Drugs. Elijah wanted to be wacky and tacky for the day...ok, he really just wanted a dress down day!!! He wore a red t-shirt that has snowmen on the beach and camouflage pants. He wore 2 different socks and shoes. I tried to get him to roll up at least one pant leg, but he did not want to be that wacky!!!!
Update on our family: Sarah is better. Only seems to be walking differently when she first gets up. Elijah and Doug are back to 100%. My grandmother is in hospice. Her blood pressure is low and she is unresponsive.

Sarah was a bit restless last night and her hair is proof!!!! She also refused to let me get her hair completely dry so it was damp, which made it stick up more! She actually slept ok. She awoke upset about 5am, but went back to sleep in our bed for another hour. The time change still has both of my kids messed up. I am tired already this morning. When you hear screaming, it will be me tackling brushing out this mess.

Yep, we are still here. Life has been...well, life! Our life as usual is wild and full of adventure. I have tons in my brain to share, just need to take time to type it out. Currently life is challenging. Doug and the kids were in a car wreck on Saturday. The van is totalled--in part due to damage, but also due to age and mileage. Everyone is ok. Doug has a scraped head. Elijah is complaining of neck and head pain. The head pain was also occuring prior to the wreck. He is cutting his molars and having headaches. Sarah, who giggled through the ride, is now having walking issues. The doctor checked her out and thinks it is just soreness. We are watching closely. She is not complaining, but does not want to walk and when she does she is favoring one side and is wobbly. She is happy and playing well. Praying for healing for all of them. I was not with them, I had gone to the grocery store, so I was close and able to get to them fast. Sarah was giggling and talking to everyone and Elijah was crying. Holding my 3 babies closer the last few days! Here are a few current pictures. I will try to be better with the updates. Please remember my family in your prayers, my grandmother had a heart attack a few days ago and after improving and holding her own, she is now no longer responsive and declining. Doug and I will be going to Miss soon. Mother will come and stay with the kids.
