Prayer Request!!

I just wanted to ask for all of your prayers for my daddy. He has been having severe abdominal pain the past couple of days and went to the doctor today. They did a CT scan on him where they found several kidney stones. He was sent home to try to pass them. Also, incidentally, on the CT scan, they found a mass to one of his lungs. We aren't sure about the details on this. He is going in the morning to see a pulmonologist and possible get a lung biopsy. I would appreciate you all praying for him. We are all pretty shaken up about this. Thank you so much!!

Lazy Sunday!!

Here are a few pics from this past Sunday. Ella and I went to church and the dress she has on in the first picture was mine when I was a baby. She looked so precious in it. After her nap after church, we all went and got a snow cone and went to the park to swing. This was very eventful!! Since when do they let teenagers hang out on all of the children's playground equipment?? It was so bad, we just had to leave. Thankfully our sweet friends, The Primos, let us come out to their house and use Sophia's swingset.

11 Months!!

Here are some recent picutures of Ella. Let me explain the first couple of pics. I was in the bathroom getting dressed for work earlier this week and Ella happened to wake up early so she came in the bathroom with me. I was drying my hair and looked around and couldn't find her anywhere. This is what I finally saw:

Here Ella is in her new carseat that Memommie gave her as an early birthday gift. She was miserable in that infant carrier.

This is Ella's teacher, Miss Dorothy. She has been her teacher ever since we started at Dominicare. This week was promotion week. She moved up to Miss Ethel's class. It was a sad day for all three of us. We love Miss Dorothy!! Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher.

Like my new do???

Bubbles at Bedtime!!!

Eating goldfish for the first time!!

Got Milk!! Ella loves to get into the refrigerator. It is so cute!!

Sorry for the long post, but I just couldn't keep these pics to myself. She is growing so fast. I can't believe she is almost one.

Cute Pics!!

I know, two posts in one day. What can I say?? I had a relaxing day. These are a few pictures taken of Ella today. She is so busy!!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Well, it is official. I am no longer in my 20's. Sad, huh?? I turned 30 yesterday. I thought I would feel somewhat different, but surprisingly, I don't feel a thing. We had such a fun day!! My sweet husband gave me the sweetest necklace with Ella's name on it and a few charms which included her birthstone. He also gave me a gift certificate to Continental Sewing. As some of you probably don't know, I have started sewing classes. Funny isn't it?? My sweet parents also came over and took me to lunch. Then Tyler and I went out to eat at Tico's last night. It was a fun day with family.

Here is a picture of my beautiful birthday cake Mrs. Donna Poole made for me. She is a long time family friend and really my second mother. Thank you for the beautiful cake.
