Western Day

Josiah had to dress up today at MDO! Luckily he had everything we needed except boots and we borrowed those!! It was western day and they had each room set up as something! There was a tattoo parlor, an acorn walk, line dancing, etc. it looked like so much fun. I wouldn't know though since he doesn't want to talk about school with me. I will hear about it in a few days though. He is too funny!! Hope everyone is ready for Halloween!!!

Off subject: I hope everyone on the east coast is doing okay from Hurricane Sandy. Saying prayers for all of them as that is all too familiar to us panhandlers!!!

Last week we went to the fair! We didn't tell Josiah we were going until we were leaving the house. When we pulled up to the fair he got so giggly and was just so excited! He rode every ride possible and had a blast!! Here are a few pictures from that night!

Almost 28

This time of year is always bittersweet for me!

Fall, my birthday, the fair, Halloween, cool nights, the fire pit, roasting marshmallows for s'mores...okay you get my point!! I love this time of year!

But fall also reminds me of some of the roughest days of my life. If you've read my blog for awhile or know me pretty well you know six years ago I was in the hospital. From October 1st to October 31st.

Scariest time of my life.

I didn't know if I would ever make it out of the hospital. For those of you that don't know I was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and they expected me not to make it and if I did I would need a double lung heart transplant. I turned 22 in that hospital and thought it was my last birthday.

So here I about to turn 28. Alive. No transplants. Living a life I only dreamed about. Living this life because of my God. He let me live for a reason. He gave me (almost) six more birthdays so far. I can't help but thank Him everyday that I wake up next to my amazing husband and my two healthy beautiful babies.

Life is great, even on the bad days, life is great!

So here's to another birthday, living with pulmonary hypertension. Most people are stressing because they are getting old! I'm thankful for seeing 28 and hoping for 28 more!!

Halloween craft

Josiah has had a fever today so I was trying to find something fun to do since we are stuck inside. I googled Halloween crafts and found this easy one that was made out of supplies I had around the house!!! We needed q-tips, glue, paper, and a picture. I didn't want to cut up any of my pictures but I found the sheet that has all the pictures I had printed at Walmart and cut one of those out!!! Josiah had fun doing it and so did I!!!!

Peanut Festival

Last weekend was the peanut festival!!! We went last year and Josiah had a blast so I thought we would keep the tradition going! My dad went with us and we had such a good time with him!

His favorite part again this year, was the big slides! They make some money off of those things! It costs $1 every time you go down! Crazy! But he loves it!!

I love this time of year!! Festivals, cool air, the fair, and my birthday!!! Ha! Hope everyone is doing great!!

4 months

Our sweet, sweet angel is 4 months old!!! I took her to the doctor today for he well visit. She is getting so big!! She weighs 15 pounds 4 oz and is 26 inches tall!!!!

She rolled over from her tummy to back a few days ago and yesterday she rolled from her back to tummy. Adalyn is such a happy baby and she just melts our hearts!!! Josiah is still in love with her! She woke up from her nap today crying and I was making her a bottle before I went in there. By the time I got in her room Josiah was patting her on the butt saying " it's ok baby girl!!" So sweet!!

I am missing blogging so much but just haven't had the time to write! Hope everyone is doing great!! :)
