THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR MARIA!!! GOD IS HELPING! Her Daddy took her to her eye exam appointment on Wednesday, and explained to her doctors that her nose has ALWAYS run, and asked them to please put her asleep anyways so they could do the eye exam. So the doctors agreed, she was put to sleep, they did the eye exam, and she woke up fine, no problems! THANK THE LORD! The Daddy and Maria went to the hospital today (Friday) to find out how much everything else will cost and when the doctors can do the surgery. (The doctors don't know that the money to pay the bill is coming from the USA, or they would charge TRIPLE THE PRICE, which the bill is already A LOT OF MONEY!!!) Phillip will be seeing the family tonight, Lord willing. We don't know how much of improvement there will be in her one eye until she has the surgery and gets glasses. PLEASE KEEP PRAYING FOR ALL TO GO WELL!! THANK YOU!!
~Noah, fixin' to play cars outside in the nice warm sun that we are loving having right now!~
On Wednesday I mixed up a batch of cinnamon rolls, which delighted my family, and the friends that have received some too. Then on Thursday, God gave me a good day, and I made Lasagna, salad, and iced tea for lunch. My family and the friend that was here visiting were THRILLED with my lunch I made, and delighted NOT to have sandwiches again! I've been too sick to cook real meals, because I couldn't handle smelling everything, so we have lived off of sandwiches until my family is SICK of them. HA! And then God helped me to be able to ride the hour to our second church, and we had a good service, I was glad that I could be there, and everyone was glad to see baby and I. I'm going to see if I can go to our one church on Sunday mornings, and then our 2nd church on Thursday nights, for I KNOW I'm not yet up to 2 services on Sunday, which involves 4 hours travel time, walking at least 3 miles, etc. per Sunday. But for now, if I can go once a week to each church, I'll be happy. Thanks for your prayers for baby and I, I'm thrilled to be having some good days!
Sarah has had 3 VERY loose teeth for awhile, but one finally fell out the other night...and so she put it under her pillow to see if "Mommy tooth Fairy" or "Daddy Tooth King" would put some money there. BUT...the next morning, Daddy Tooth King had to leave very early and didn't think of leaving money and Mommy tooth Fairy is pregnant and sleeps in now-a-days, so poor Sarah, the "toothless princess" awoke to just her tooth under her pillow, and no money! =( Just when I woke up, I remembered that we had forgotten her money, so I quickly collected some money, went into her room and told her to please get out of bed and go do an errand for me...and she looked at me with SAD eyes and said, "I don't have any money under my pillow!" and I said, "I'm sorry, Sarah, it's because your Mother forgot!" I quickly put her money under her pillow while she was doing that errand, and when she returned to her room, she was THRILLED with the money she got! =)~Her 2 top middle teeth are very loose and should fall out any day...so soon we will have our very own CUTE "jack-o-latern!" HA! Poor Noah, who has 2 sisters loosing teeth quite often and getting money for them, goes around YANKING on his teeth to TRY to make them loose! =D~
We have our tree up and there are several gifts wrapped and under the tree. Poor Noah keeps telling me that he REALLY NEEDS to open his Christmas gifts RIGHT NOW...for there is NO WAY he can wait until Christmas!! =D
~Kimberly playing with her "Kelly" dolls out in front of our home.~
Yesterday, after giving Noah a bath, (but per his request, leaving him there to play in the tub with his toys for a little while and then Kimberly would get him dressed later)...I laid down for a quick nap, warning all of my children to PLEASE be quiet so I could sleep before we left for church. A few minutes later I heard Noah doing LOUD ROARING GROWLS...so I yelled to him, "Noah, I need you to be quiet, for I'm trying to sleep...! To which he replied, "It's not me, Mommy; it's my ALLIGATOR!!!" We all had to laugh at him!
~SARAH, AND NOAH AND HIS HOWLING-GROWLING ALLIGATOR THAT KEPT MOMMY AWAKE!~
