Rough Week

What have we been doing the last week?

Grandpa had to have shoulder surgery last Thursday, and he has had a very difficult/painful recovery.  We went Friday to visit and take them some food.  Saturday, Daddy worked and then Memaw and Paw Paw came to visit.  They watched the girls for us so we could go out to dinner for a friend's birthday.  Sunday we had church and then went to lunch and ran some errands.  Sunday night Memaw and Paw Paw watched the girls again while Mommy and Daddy went to dinner.  It's been forever since just the two of us went out!  It was nice.  Monday Memaw and I went to a consignment sale while Paw Paw stayed home with the girls.  Memaw, Mia, and I went back in the afternoon while Mollie was napping.  We were able to get the girls a lot of nice clothes for cheap!  While we were there, Daddy called to say that his grandma (Grandpa's mother) in Florida had just passed away. She had been sick for quite some time, but would keep getting a little better and pull through.  Her body just finally gave out.  Monday evening, my best friend and her mom came to town for a concert and came by here for a short visit and brought us Sir Pizza.  Yum!  It was so good to see them.

Daddy, Uncle Greg, Grandma, and Grandpa left yesterday for Florida for the memorial service.  I know the ride was tough for Grandpa after just having surgery.  But they made it there and will be back Sunday.

Mollie has been doing some serious teething, and we are still waiting for her first tooth to break through.  Her gums are very swollen and you can feel it, but it just won't break through!  She hasn't been sleeping well for a long time now (and Mommy is exhausted), but Wednesday night was really stuffy and only slept on me because she couldn't breathe.  Then yesterday she woke up with watery eyes, stuffy nose, a low grade fever, and just didn't feel well.  Around 7pm, she acted like a different child!  She still didn't sleep well, but seems better today.  So I don't know if it's a cold or from teething.

Mommy's uncle's mother also passed away this week, so the girls will be heading to Asheboro for the visitation and funeral this weekend.

So it has been a rough week.  This is all added to the normal stuff (preschool, church, Daddy's busy season at work, etc).  And we had an electrician working here Tuesday and had painters here yesterday painting the playroom and half bathroom.  Busy week!

Please pray for the Sellman Family and King Family as they have lost loved ones.

We decided at the last minute to take the girls to the circus as their Valentine's present.  We all had a blast!  Mia loved it and watched the whole thing.  Her favorites were the trapeze artists (which she has now tried to imitate on her glider on the swing set) and the lions.  Mollie did really well and actually fell asleep for a little while during the show.  Mia told us it was the best Valentine's present ever!  It was a fun family day.

We got to the show early and got to go down on the floor.  Mia was a little overwhelmed with everything at first, but was happy after she got a light up toy.

This was so cool!  At one point they had seven motorcycles riding in the cage at once!

Congratulations Unkie and Aunt Jen!

We are very excited to announce that Unkie and Aunt Jen are expecting a baby!  She is almost 11 weeks along, and due September 10.  We can't wait!  They gave us Valentine's boxes of candy that had a picture of the ultrasound and a card from the baby to tell us the news.  Please pray that everything goes smoothly.


This is the night they told us the news.

Big Paw Paw's 85th Birthday

Big Paw Paw just turned 85!  We drove in to Asheboro to surprise him for a birthday dinner.  Then we went back to Memaw and Paw Paw's for cake and ice cream.  I think he had a good time!

Mollie's 6 month pics

I can't believe Mollie is 6 months old now!  She is starting to sit up on her own and like to roll around to get places.  She is following in her sister's footsteps in the fact that she doesn't want to sleep at night.  I just hope she isn't 2 1/2 before she sleeps through the night like Mia was!  Here are some of the pictures we had taken.

December Pics

December was a busy month so here are some pics of what we were up to....

Mollie trying cereal for the first time.  She really didn't care for it very much, and still isn't very interested in baby food.  She wears more than she eats!

The castle that Mia specifically requested and Santa worked so hard to build.  It is beautiful, and complete with stars on the ceiling, mirrors inside, and princess costumes hanging!

We were very excited that we got about 5-6 inches of snow Christmas Day!  That doesn't happen very often around here.

November Pics

Here are some pictures from November.  Daddy had to speak at a conference in Virginia at a really nice resort called the Homestead so we got to tag along.  My birthday was that weekend too, so it made it extra nice.
