my brothers Prom

I took the pics of my brother for his prom at Cannonsburg park.

R.I.P. Meemaw 4-23-08

We got the call while on vacation in Fl Wednesday night that My meemaw was back in the hospital for a UTI and dehydration. My mom fought with hospice to get her to the hospital because of fever and the fact that she was sick with an infection. that was that morning. at 7p my mom called to tell me she was in the hospital being treated for her infection and she was going home and returning to the hospital the next day. I felt ok about it. well at 10 my mom called back saying she as gone! her body could not handle the infection any more. she shut down, all the other family members were there because they were called back there at like 8 or so saying she was not going to make it thought the night.
I could not believe it!
Mom thinks meemaw knew she was going home to heaven that night before and that day because she was consistently hugging my mom and telling her she loved her.
I know she is cured now in Heaven with Jesus!

It was so hard to tell my kids, I told them the night before we left so they could still enjoy their Disney Vacation.
When I said Meemaw has died,Madison's first words were "WHY" Oh was that hard or what! I explained it to her. she said "meemaws better now" I said yes! She also would say meemaws in heaven with Jesus now. later that day she was in the Van and said "mommy I am not big anymore" I said why not, she said "because i can not reach my meemaw anymore". How sad, I told her meemaw was watching her and she now she is in heaven with Jesus now.

The services were beautiful like meemaw would have liked them but yet simple. during the part at the grave Austin kept saying open it back up I want to see meemaw. that was hard.

I am still very lost without her and it has not sunk in yet.

I really feel for my poppy! he is going to be so lost without her!

I have pics of her I will put up later.

Disney 08

We left for Florida Friday April 18th. We drove till south Ga and got a hotel room. woke up ate breakfast and then drove the rest of the way. we get to our room unload, then go to Downtown Disney as we can walk one block to it, and we played in the water fountains shooting out of the ground. We looked at the shops. Madison was in HEAVEN with all the Princess stuff. Austin loved the pirate stuff. We ate at Benigans coming in town and then Chevys for dinner.

Sunday We went to meet Laura and family at MGM for a few. We went to the little mermaid show all together, the kids loved playing with each other. they had to leave, but we saw the Beauty and Beast show, we watched the Pixars parade Block Party,Play House Disney Live, then we went onto Magic Kingdom, Madison saw the Dream with Mickey on stage in front of the castle, and she was estactic with the princesses on stage,Austin slept..LOL. We rode the space ride, the Buzz ride, we did the Mickeys Philharmagic show, That night we had the Dinner with the princesses at Epcot. After the appetizer part and the main entree comes Madison falls asleep eating her pasta, she is in her sleeping beauty costume. So she is asleep in the high chair with her head on the table. everyone said oh look at sleeping beauty.. thank fully she saw all the princesses come to the table before we ate. she was in heaven. Austin just wanted Jasmine to see him..LOL We ate while she slept. Service was awful.

Monday we headed to Universals Islands of Adventure. Austin saw spider man! We were about 1 in too short to ride that and a couple other rides through out the park. they did get to ride unicorns, one fish two fish, cat in the hat, the railway in the sky ride (not sure the name right now), carousal, and played in the If i ran the zoo. We met up with my friend Mindy. That night we ate at crazy buffet in north Orlando, not as good as it use to be.

Tuesday we head to MGM(Hollywood Studios) again for a few then to Magic Kingdom. We met with the Monsters first but Madison wanted nothing i mean nothing to do with them. She told Daddy to go move go while we were seeing the monsters, sully kept backing Austin back and back into a corner playing with him, it was cute. We then went to see Mater but again Madison nothing to do with him. Then to see incrediables and Mickey Mouse. We all were ok with them. After we went to Magic Kingdom rode teacups. We drove the cars at the track and Madison drove me and Alexis and Austin drove Adam. Madison was a crazy driver, adam said she might have almost been the first person to jump the track. LOL

Wednesday we headed to Universal Studios we did the shrek ride, Terminator, ET, Woodys rollercoaster. almost rode the technical rehearsal part of the simpsons new ride. We saw Dora, then we saw shrek and donkey. Madison did not want to see shrek and donkey. Donkey talked it was cool! they played in curious George's play house and ball factory, it was lots of WET fun!! We had to leave to go eat and then head to Magic Kingdom for the after hours Pirate and Princess Party. We ate at Red Lobster. We got there just as the Parade was coming around the front entrance we had a great spot for the parade. It was the best parade I have ever seen at Disney, Madison was scared with the pirates and villains came around. But oh so happy when the princesses and peter pan came around. We rode several rides like Dumbo, small world, peter pan. They loved them all! We got to the hotel very late that night.

Thursday we went to Animal Kingdom after we had breakfast with Characters in our hotel Goofy and Pluto showed up Alexis was scared! We went on the safari they both loved it. we did the bugs show all like it except Madison was a little scared, Alexis went to sleep. we loved the Nemo musical show!
We actually were able to ride the river rapids! Austin and I did not get wet, Madison and the person in her seat with her got wet, Adam sat with Alexis because she was too small to ride. they were not big enough for the Dino rides. we watched the lion king show and liked it. Adam and I rode the new Mt Everest and enjoyed it! We were able to ride the triceratops ride. We ate dinner with my friend Mindy and her BF at cheesecake factory.

Friday we went to the Beach in Tampa area. We went to Fort De soto park beach. The sand was great and the water was nice. the wind was blowing pretty good but it was not bad. Alexis just wanted to get off the towels and she ate handfuls of sand! We took pics with the tripod on the beach as a family. it was good! We ate dinner that night at longhorn. we had to go back and pack because we had to leave early to get back for the visitation on sat for Meemaws Funeral.

We left at 4am sat.

Man I am a slacker....

A lot has been going on since I last blogged. Oh where shall I begin....

We went on Vacation to FL to Disney at the end of April. I will make that a separate post.

While we were there My meemaw passed on to Heaven with Jesus! I will also make that a separate post.

Adam accepted a new job!!! AMEN! He will be starting May 5th but he will be in Clearwater Fl for 2 weeks for training. It was sad to leave Kroger but we need more money! Plus its a little closer to home.

Alexis went to the urologist after having some testing done at the hospital a renal test and ultrasound. nothing showed except what was like debris like an infection in the urinary tract. the urologist was not concerned about that, he saw on his own ultrasound he did was an "indention" in the bladder. He wants to do a test that he has to put her under for where he will use a light scope up through the urethra. that will take place on May 22nd.

I had our Twins club consignment sale for the spring. I sold 350 dollars worth! I also bought the kids clothes for summer. Plus we got 2 toddler beds.

My cousin Amy is having a GIRL...Macy Gray. I hope i spelled it like she is going to.

Work is going well.

I am the Homeowner association president of our neighborhood...How the heck did i agree to that...LOL

I fell at target the Friday of the sale and hurt my knee bad!

We started sticker charts for the kids for behavior and it is actually working better that other things we have done.

I chopped my Hair off!!!! I will post a pic. My friend Jana did it and did an amazing job!! best hair cut i have had!

Alexis is almost fully crawling, not backwards, or combat but actually almost crawling. its so cute to watch!
We had to lower her crib because I went in there today and she was sitting up and I was affraid she would pull up and flip over.

I think that is all for now. I will post if i think of more.
