Baseball, Pie, and Cake

Jonah came over this afternoon for awhile. We talked baseball for a bit. I am so excited that he is going to play! We did some online searching for baseball necessities - you know like gloves, shoes, bats, etc.

Then the kitchen started drawing us both its way! He helped me make some peach jelly. While I was making a key lime pie, he asked if he could make a cake. Well, of course, he could!

I had fun, and I think he did, too.


(Can you tell he loves sprinkles?!)

Glory, get well quickly. She's running fever AGAIN!

Quick Trip to Mansfield

We were so suppose to leave on a camping trip yesterday. However, the rig had an issue; so we had to take it in. Therefore, we just went to spend the night in Mansfield. Jenna had to take Marlow to the doctor. She had a double ear infection. We spent the night and kept her home from daycare today. By tonight she had gotten two days of antibiotics and was feeling much better.

And.........Molly is five months old today!

Snow Day

It snowed here some in North Texas today. It is so pretty.

Enjoyed looking at it -- sitting by the fire!

Jonah and Glory came over this afternoon.

Enjoyed watching them play in it -- from the backdoor!

Yep, that's how I've rolled today.

Family Christmas on 
New Year's Eve Eve
and Happy New Year

With my surgery, our family Christmas had been rescheduled. It worked out great. Chad, Tara and Tim got to be with us on Friday evening. Everyone pitched in with our Mexican food meal. It was yummy! We had a great time playing games and exchanging gifts.



Happy 2017!!

We had our black-eyed peas with everyone at a meal last night at Marilyn's.

So blessed!

Christmas Emergency Appendectomy

Our family Christmas was scheduled for Friday, December 23. On Thursday the 22nd, I began to feel bad. Marilyn and I were out running last minute errands. When it came time for lunch, I warned her I might not eat much. After 26 hours of stomach pain and passing it off as a "stomach bug," I decided I should probably have it checked out - otherwise I might spend the 24th or the 25th in the ER if things didn't improve.

Leaving the rest of my family at the house, Jenna and Jared took me to a clinic. After the doctor examined me, she told me I needed to go to the ER with possible appendicitis. So I still ended up at the hospital. Marilyn came up and let Jenna, Jared, and Marlow come back to the house. After bloodwork and a CT scan, appendicitis was confirmed.


(Marilyn took this right after I was told I had to have surgery!)

Justin, Jared, Jenna and Keelie put a meal together at the house, cleaned up the kitchen, and then the kids brought Rick up for the surgery which was a couple of hours later. The kids did a great job taking charge; they also made the decision to reschedule our family Christmas until this next weekend.

I was released Christmas Eve night.

So blessed though - still celebrated our Savior's birth surrounded by family members!
