Thursday 13

Emaline's new favorite toy! If you don't have this toy, you must get one. It is actually a dog toy that has batteries inside, it jumps and vibrates all over the floor. She goes crazy!

Parker's new backpack for preschool! He wasn't so sure. It was heavy!

Parker enjoying his rain day! Kind of a scary face.
Nana's birthday. We love you nana!

Coming home from lunch with nana we stopped to get a drink at Sonic. I took this picture while driving down 360! I thought I did pretty good holding the camera and shooting over my shoulder into the back seat. He was exhausted!

WELCOME TANNER JAMES! 9lbs and 9oz! Way to go Denise, and Jeremy. Here are the big brothers talking it over. Parker trying to give advice. He can sure give it, he is a great big brother.

Women of Faith is this weekend! I am so excited and I love this quote.

I am so sorry this post is all over the place, literally. I also know there aren't 13 things. Sorry. Here is the deal. My step dad started his chemo this week for his cancer that has spread. My grandmother had a heart attack yesterday and didn't tell us...she didn't want to be a bother...ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Finally after we couldn't get a hold of her, I called her best friend who broke the news that she was in the hospital. WHAT! Stacey's grandmother is also in the hospital. Kind of beat. I also feel Satan, which I HATE! I keep having a conversation with him...Yes I am going to WOF, Yes I am still teaching Sunday School, Yes I am going to keep tutoring right now, Yes I am going (and went) to the Ladies Dinner at church, Yes I am going to sleep, Yes I am .....

He is not winning. It has taken me a long time for me to call Satan out, and some of you from bible study know this. I will not let him ruin my weekend! Praise God! I can't wait to tell you all about WOF! I hope to see some of you there!

I will be praying that you feel God's presence at WOF. I love to go to those. They are so uplifting. Hopefully you will be filled with what He has to say to you this weekend. Sorry so much is going on around you. Get some good rest:)

So sorry about all the tough things going on. Thanks for being such an example of calling that Satan out! I need to do it way more often! Love all the pics!

I am so glad that you are the woman you are! Watch out Satan! Know this: I got your back and if God brings us to it, he will bring us though it. And this to shall pass! I love you endlessly!

I was thinking about you yesterday (and this morning) when I got the email telling everything that was going on with your family. I will be praying for you and your family--especially your sweet grandmother who didn't want to bother anyone with her problems. Get some rest.

Hang in there and keep fighting! I pray that you will feel God's presence this weekend and always with the struggles of this world.

Great picture of Parker. We had one of those toys. I didn't realize it was a dog toy, though. I used to let Patrick teethe on dog teethers (that had never been used-we don't have a dog).

Is this the same grandma that comes to help you out while you tutor? I'll be thinking of you through these struggles.

I am so sorry for all the things that are going on right now...Thanks for reminding us that we can count on God and not let Satan get us down, no matter what! Please know that I'll be praying for you and your family! Love all the pics...I have really enjoyed getting to know you and your family better through blogging!

Satan hits us hardest when we're overwhelmed. Hang in there. You're in my thoughts.
