5 years ago today....

I married the most amazing man. I am lacking pictures because all our wedding stuff is at my parents house in TN and I keep forgetting to get these will have to do.

Greg-thank you for being an incredible husband, father, provider, friend, partner, and soul mate. I love you!

The Great Squirrel Debate

Well, we just couldn't resist sharing this video with you. I know, I's 1 million times cuter to us than anyone else. It should put a smile on your face regardless. Who knew we would have a squirrel whisperer on our hands?

Our vacation wouldn't be a vacation......

if it didn't involve an ER visit. Yes that's right only this time we didn't even get out of Texas. We left at 4:15am on Friday morning thinking we would be at my parents house by 5pm. About 2 hours into the trip James threw up which prompted me to take his temperature. It was 100.4. I called MDA and was waiting for a return call when 30 minutes later I took his temp again and it had spiked to 101.4. By this time we were past Nacadotches (sp?) and we turned the car around and headed to the Lufkin ER. After 6 and a half hours we got to leave and head on to TN. James is fine and his counts indicate he is fighting a virus.

Please pray for no more ER visits this vacation!!!

2 years ago today...

We heard the words your son has leukemia. I can still remember how I felt...completely numb, no emotion. I remember sitting there at 12:30 at night and we had been at the hospital for 12 hours having no idea what was going on. It still hard at times to revisit that night, in fact when I talk about it I still tear up and cry. We have come so far, James has come so far in this journey-sometimes it I think-does he really have this?

No words can describe the gratitude and thankfulness we have for each one of you that have prayed and supported us through this journey. We feel truly blessed by friends and family who love us and who have been there for us. Thank you.

Here are some pictures from our journey....

Little Miss Into Everything

That black stuff on her face is my mascara! The girl is into everything-so different from how James is!

James made through another round of steroids and he did great. We are coming up on our second anniversary since diagnosis this Sunday July 12th! God has definitely been faithful through this journey!

Ultrasound results.....

a healthy baby! Unfortunately the baby is breech, sitting criss cross applesauce, and looks to be straddling the umbilical cord. Dr. Strong is not making a definitive guess...but he saw something that makes him think we are having a.........GIRL! Another ultrasound will be coming in the future to see if we can be sure. The most important thing is that the baby is healthy and is developing normally.
