Pictures Please!

My sweet friend and fellow mom of multiples (sweet triplets) took our pictures a couple of weeks ago at the Dallas Arboretum. She did an awesome job like she always does! In 30 minutes, she got a ton of good shots! It probably helped that the girls LOVE to have their pictures taken and pose for Allison (they also love her).

Her are some pictures she took.

Sweet Gracie


My little Lizzie and Gracie have been sweet little girls. They have their episodes but tend to still be good. When we go to play areas or parks, they would play sweetly. But recently, they have become "those kids". You know the ones, the hitters, kicker or pushers.

Today for example, Gracie had something that Lizzie wanted. They started fighting over it and then Gracie opened her mouth like she was going to bite. I caught her and we talked about no biting. Later, I took them to the play area at the mall. In about 5 minutes, Gracie had made a younger girl cry twice, Lizzie made the same girl cry and then Lizzie pushed down a kid that was barely walking. The dad was right there, fortunately, he was understanding. Each girl had several time outs.

I guess it just a phase (hopefully) and we will learn to be nice.

We were in the car and Gracie had her play camera. She kept saying
"cheese!". Lizzie informed her, "eat cheese Gracie not say it".

The Wait is OVER!

Well, the results came back from my dad's tests. The good news is that he will be ok! All he needs are some antibiotics. As you may remember from this post, my dad was undergoing testing to see what was in his lungs. The two extremes were nothing to cancer and anything in between. The entire family was in a state of stress and wait. No one wanted to plan anything because we didn't know what was going to happen.

We found out today that he just has a little fungus in his lungs (probably left over from his pneumonia). He probably breathed something in, the allergens have been high, and it went into his lungs and started to grow. He just takes some antibiotics and he will be fine!

We found all this out on his birthday! It was a great birthday present to him!

Ahoy Matey

My nephew is really into pirates. He was a pirate for about 3 Halloweens straight. His favorite movie is Peter Pan. So, it was not surprise when he talked all the cousins into playing pirate with him. All 5 of the kids put on "pirate hats" and sailed in their "ships" around my parents house. It was really cute. All the adults were cracking up! What imaginations!

Waiting is one of the things that I am not good at doing. I'm not patient and I don't like the unknown, but the last 3 weeks has been full of waiting. My dad is waiting on the results of some medical tests. With each new test, comes a period of waiting. It's hard. I just have to keep praying and waiting. Hopefully soon, we will have answers and know what course of action we need to take.

Sometimes, God puts people in your life to make the waiting easier. In my case, its been getting back to yoga and connecting to an inner peace and its been some pretty awesome friends and my church that remind me what praying and God are really about.

We still have another week of waiting, but I know that my faith will help me through.
