Trick or Treat

So the past weekend we had a Halloween Party on Friday night at Bro Lee and Sis Elvira's this year. It was fun but it was freezing so we all piled in the shed/garage. Their were some great costumes this year everybody seemed to get into it this year. Mark and I were Tiger Woods and Elin and Ms. Reece was the cutest little ladybug you've ever seen!

Saturday morning we got up and went to Nashville, my Nanny and my sister Taylor went with us. We had alot of fun we went to the Cool Springs Galleria and shopped til we dropped! This was Alabama's week off so Mark agreed to actually go somewhere on a fall/football Saturday, although we got home late that night, he was still able to get a football fix once we got home.

Sunday we got up and went to breakfast and got some groceries and hung out at home til it was time to go to church that night.

Monday evening we took Reece trick or treating, since this was her first year and she's still so little we just went to family, which includes going all the way to Skyline. She got some good stuff, everybody got her gifts it was sweet.

This weekend is our regular weekend at church and not to mention the BIG game Saturday night. So looks like it will be another crazy weekend around here. Roll Tide!

Pumpkin Patch

Well a couple Saturdays back, some of us girls took the kids to Tate Farms, we had a good time but it was freezing! I was so excited about getting to take Reece this year even though I knew she wouldn't get to do much but I knew I could at least get some good pics.

Trying to get back in the swing

Well it's been forever since I have posted, As most of you know Reece Addisyn was born February 7th 2011 at 7:06am she was 8lbs 14 oz. 20 inches long and the most beautiful thing Mark and I have ever laid eyes on, she is perfect. She consumes most of my time and I wouldn't have it any other way. Being a mother is everything I hoped it would be and much more. She just turned 8 months old on Friday, she is getting big so fast. She doesn't have any teeth yet, she hasn't started to crawl yet either, she just rolls all over the place to get where she wants to go. She is Mark made over, just about everything about her is identical to him and he loves that. She is totally got him wrapped around her finger already and she is pretty crazy about him too. So I've uploaded the pics I've took everytime she turns another month old. Maybe I will post before again before she's 5 years old!

Mothers Day

I finally have a minute to sit down! This weekend has been a busy one. I had a yard sale yesterday morning with my Nanny (Dad's mom) and my baby sister Taylor. We did pretty good, I made $150.00 and didn't have to bring anything back home. Then we went to Tommy and Nelda's for a Shrimp Boil that Mark made, it was awesome. We made time for a little volley ball, it was a nice evening and Nelda even made us some homemade ice cream! Mom and Dad spent the evening with us too and then came back to my house to stay the night for a Sunday morning Mother's Day breakfast, which was very good. Spent a few hours with them this morning, then had to make my desserts for a graduation party tonight after church. Reflecting on Mother's Day makes me very thankful for my mother and all the mothers in my life, My mom has always been my best friend, she's one that I could always go to and I knew she would not judge me but that she would do her very best to give me the best advice. I'm so thankful for that. My mom is the strongest, most independent woman I know, that is one thing I envy about her. She is the one that would never wait for my Dad to get home before she would move the piano by herself, from one room to the other. She was and always is there for her girls, growing up she was a stay- at-home mom and we never went without anything. That day in September of 2007 was the most scariest day of our life.
I remember being at work one day and got a call from Dad, he said we just came back from the hospital and your mom has a mass in her stomach. I was absolutely shocked, I was like what are you talking about. I had been married just over a year and I knew mom had had some trouble sleeping and thought that she had a hernia, but this blew my mind. I said ok I'll be right there, he said No we dont know any details but they did a biopsy and we will know something in a few days. So the rest of the day I spent praying and thought maybe it wasn't anything serious. I went straight over there after work and seen the pictures from the scope they did that day, I don't know much about stuff like that but what ever it was looked scary. Alot of the family came over that night, just trying to wrap our mind around it all. I mean Mom had felt great, she had just spent the whole week before working like a mule on her sisters daughters wedding, she said she had felt so good that she had even thought about not going to her appointment that day, Thank the Good Lord she did. She had went in that morning for a scope in her stomach to see if she did have a hernia, when they did it they seen the mass and did a biospy. On Wednesday morning she called me at work and said the doctors office just called and they have my results, they told me not to come by myself, so in case I get bad news, you should come over to the house and wait with Whitney, Nanny, Grandmother and Paw Paw. I could feel a big lump in my throat and said ok and told my boss I was leaving and depending what happen I may not be back that day. I think she had to be there at like 8 or 8:30, it was the longest wait of our lives, Whitney, Paw Paw and I went to Wal-Mart, we just had to do something the waiting was getting longer and longer, when we got back to the house, Dad had called, and Grandmother was sitting in the recliner crying. Nanny said that Mom and Dad were on there way back home and that Mom did have cancer, stomach cancer. I cannot even describe the feeling I felt that day, my mom was the strongest person I knew and she was never sick, how could this happen. But I knew I had to be strong when they came in, Mom came in, she was in good spirits, she confirmed the bad news but was very encourage that with surgery and a few treatments of chemo and radiation it would do the trick, not to mention our Great Physician's Hand. That was the worst day of my life. I called Mark at work and told him, I couldn't hold my tears in any longer when I talked to him, he said he would be leave work and be there in little awhile. I had tons of friends that called and text me showing me their love. On Friday, Mom went to meet her surgeon and her oncologist. They scheduled the surgery Monday morning. She would have to have a gastric by-pass and remove one-third of her stomach. They admitted her in the hospital on Sunday evening. We had lots of family and friends to come show their love and support. Mom came through the surgery and had to spend the next week in the hospital. The Lord came by and let Bro. David Kittrell annoit her in the hospital, and so many other great Children of God lay hands on her. She went in and out of chemo for the next few months, but on first weekend in February she was at church on Sunday morning and Bro Totchie McLain annoited her and the Lord healed her! She has been cancer-free for 3 years now, The Lord is so good to us and I praise him for healing my mom! It was a true miracle and one that I want soon forget.

Been awhile...

Well I guess I need to update this thing every once in awhile. So since my last post my life has been a whirl wind. We started keeping a baby in late Sept and early Oct. and thought the Lord might have a different plan for us than we had for ourselves. We have always talked about adopting, Mark is adopted and we would love to change a childs life the way his was so wonderfully changed by being adopted. So we thought that might be where this was leading and we fell so deeply in love with this child, but the Lord once again had other plans. So to make a long story short, we quit keeping the baby in early November and my appt with my thyroid doctor was the next week. So much to my surprise I went in to my appt, Mom came with me, and got great news that my thyroid was NORMAL!! I was so thankful! My thyroid had never been normal since I had been diagnosed with this. I know the Lord did it, He knew just what I needed that day. The doctor told me I could have a baby! So now its been 6 months and no baby yet, But I know the Lords not done with me. My thyroid levels are still normal. So I guess now its just a waiting game....

Same ole story

Well its been a long time since I posted anything, so its the same ole story. Since my last post, I went to the appointment on August 12th, the doctor had put me on medication to take one 3 times a day. When I first went to the doctor my level was 0.01, 6 weeks later after being on medication is was 20.60. He was just trying to get it in between 0.24-4.2. So my levels were way to low. He said just start taking one pill a day for 4 weeks and go have more blood work done. So I did that and 4 weeks later it was 11.94, still to low, he told me to go off my medication all together and go back in 3-4 weeks and have blood work done again,so thats where I'm at today, just got off the phone with the nurse and get this in 3 weeks in went from 11.94 to 0.07 so now it's to high! This is so frustrating. She told me that he wanted me to go back on my medication one pill a day until my appointment in November! I know its gonna be the same as it was before when I was taking the medication..I'm so confused and feel like there's just no solution.
