Oh My!

I have NOT been very good at keeping this up to date & for that, I apologize. WOW. 3 kids & a husband are a lot of work! Here's just a few updates.

On Monday, May 4th, 2009 @ 7:45am, we had another little girl! Elleh Rebecca weighed 7lbs, 9 ozs & was 21 inches long. She had dark hair believe it or not! We're both doing great. Poor Rob! 3 girls....Karma. It's a WONDERFUL thing! Elleh is a great baby & Mollie & Ava LOVE being big sisters & little mothers. Poor Elleh.

Mollie played soccer again this Spring (I may have mentioned that before) She seems to really like to play. Gymnastics is done for the summer, but will start again next Fall, about the same time as kindergarten. She went to VBS @ church in May, and did swimming lessons again in June. She will start Golf lessons this month! She's a busy kid. She turned 5 at the end of June & had a great time at her birthday party. Daddy took her to see Dr Carrie for her kindergarten appointment. He said that she did really well with the shots.

Ava is having a blast going to Char's on a part-time basis. She loves to play with all of the other kids, although she & Eyan seem to have some major issues. They have a LOVE/HATE relationship. She will start going to Char's full time when Mollie starts school & Char has a full time opening.

Elleh is such a good baby. She has her days & nights figured out for the most part, loves to nurse, and has begun to smile & coo at us!

We just got home today from a very impromptu trip to Tennesse to help Rob's grandparents celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was short notice & at first, was just going to be Rob flying out with his mom & Mike. After thinking about it & visiting with his mom, then me, we all decided that this occasion was to BIG to miss & we would attempt to drive to Tennessee with the 3 girls so that we could all be there. AMAZINGLY, it went great. The girls were so good & real troopers. The ceremony was so beautiful & very special. I can only hope & pray that Rob & I make that same goal in 44 years! His grandparents have set such a wonderful example of what true love really is. We will cherish the memories of being able to witness such an amazing accomplishment that too few get to experience any more! The visit with family was wonderful, but way to short. Lynne's sister Sharon (Shay to all of us) was there from California & her other sister Janet was there from Texas. Of course her brother Mike & his little guy Jake were there too! I got to meet some distant cousins & other relatives. We missed those that couldn't be there for whatever reasons, but know that they were there in spirit. We'll just have to get together sometime soon. While we were there, Rob & I took Mollie & Ava to BMS (Bristol Motor Speedway) & took some pictures. They thought it was pretty cool. Ava kept saying "boogity boogity boogity"! It was halarious!

Well, I suppose I should keep unpacking, putting things away & do some laundry. I will do my best to keep this up to date & post some pictures.

I hope that everyone had a WONDERFUL 4th of July. We sure did. Thank you to everyone for the sacrifices they have made so that I can live the wonderful life I live! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

Out for now!
