Happy Memorial Weekend!!

I would like to wish a very Happy Anniversary to my parents. Today marks 40 years of blissful marriage! Ha - not always but through many years of ups and downs they have done what most these days do not. They have stayed together and loved each all along the way. 3 children, 9 grandchildren and 1 beloved pooch later.....40 years! Love you Mom and Dad! Best Wishes on this Big day and to many, many more!

Gosh, they look soooo young in these pictures!

I must also give a shout out to my oldest nephew Christian Isaac! He graduated from High School Friday night. I cannot believe he is getting ready to embark on the next big stage in his life... COLLEGE! He has turned from this precious little boy into this handsome thoughtful young man. I cannot wait to see what big things he has in store. Congratulations dear Nephew!

Lastly, Happy Memorial Weekend everyone. Hope you have a fabulously fun holiday. Don't forget to pay tribute to all our service men and women who have fought for our freedom.

My precious pooch passed away this morning. My heart is absolutely broken. She has brought me so much love and joy these past 15 years. Although I am so sad that she will not be around anymore, I know she is in a better place and will suffer no longer. I will miss her dearly..........

Hope's HAPPY HEART DAY! May 17th

3 years ago (May 17th, 2007) Scott and I handed off our precious 5 month old baby girl to the cardiology team at Childrens Hospital at OU Medical Center in OKC. It nearly broke my heart handing her to strangers while she cried and held out her arms for me. I will never forget the feeling of complete helplessness, the understanding that possibly she might not make it through this surgery. We were surrounded with the love and support of our families while in the waiting room. The wait was for updates came very slowly. Around 9 that evening we got the phone call that they were closing her up and everything looked good so far, but the next 24 hours were critical. About an hour later Hope's surgeon Dr. Peter came into the waiting room to let us know everything went well and she looked good. Her bypass machine had malfunctioned but luckily not at a critical point during the surgery. Finally sometime after midnight she was moved to the PICU and we were able to see her. The image I saw will be forever burned in my memory. She looked like a pale lifeless doll. I stayed in the room with her until she woke up the next morning from the anesthesia around 8 am. She was extrememly fussy at first but once the groggyness seemed to wear off she recognized me and seemed excited to see me and her daddy. We spent 7 days in the PICU because of a few minor setbacks. By the end of our stay Hope was her happy active little self. It was unbelievable to me that after a major open heart surgery, (other than the healing wounds) 7 days later it was as if nothing had ever happened to her.

Hope is an amazing little girl. Her strength, tenacity, and love of life astound me everyday. She is truly my hero and I cannot imagine life without her in it! HAPPY HEART DAY HOPE!!!

Happy Mother's Day, 3rd Grade Spelling Bee & LLA Spring Program

One more crazy week down. 2 weeks left to go before school lets out and things SLOW down! Whew! My Mother's Day was a super awesome day!!! It started with breakfast in bed (Cinnamon/sugar and butter/jelly toast) made by my girls and overseen by daddy. I know, not the breakfast of champions but at ages 3, 7 and 8 what else could you expect??? We lounged around for a couple hours, snuggled and got lots of hugs and kisses. Gosh, wish everyday was Mother's day!! Finally got around and had lunch at Los Cabos. Did a little car shopping while all the car salesmen were off today. I think we may have actually found something... keep you posted. Momma needs a new ride!! Then we headed to the movie theater and watched Disney's OCEANS. Once we got home Hannah and Hope decided I needed a foot massage. Love my girls and Hubby so much. They made me feel truly special today! Wishing my mom and grandmother Happy Mother's Day! Sorry I wasn't able to spend some of it with you!

Hannah had the honor of participating in the 3rd grade Spelling Bee at school on Friday. So proud of her and her accomplishments this year. She is such a smart girl. She did so well lasting many rounds. Finally she got stumped on the word "NAUGHTY" hmmm.... coincidence?? Kidding!!! So proud of her!

Cannot believe that Hope is about to finish her 2nd year at Lord's Little Army Preschool. She performed in LLA Spring program/Graduation. We have been going here now for 6 years now... Hannah and Hadley started at ages 1 1/2 and 3. What a precious group of ladies that have taught and loved my girls. Thanks to Mrs. Colleen and Mrs. Traci for the love you have shown my precious Hope! Love you all Orange Tigers! Looking forward to becoming a Purple Penguin next year!

Looking forward to getting through next week. We have 3 games scheduled, batting practice, Dance practice/rehearsal/Dance Recital all this week. We can do this! Only 2 more weeks and we can slow down! Happy Mother's day to all of the special mothers out there. Hope your day was as special as mine!
