Happy 6th Birthday to my babies!

Happy 6th Birthday to my babies!  I still can't believe it has been 6 years!  Time is passing by way to fast!

 We had a little party here at the house on their birthday,
 Here is Abbie with her cake at their birthday party.
 Andy with his cake at their party.
 Levi with his cake.

We went to Callaway Gardens Fantasy in lights with Old Hopewell Church.  It was beautiful!  These pictures don't even start to show just how beautiful it was!

 Well time to come up with a picture for our Christmas card this year.   This always starts out good and goes down hill from there!  I try to get some good shots in a hurry because I never know how long it is going to be good.
 This is the best one I got of all 3 of them!  Levi, Abbie & Andy
 Levi & Andy
 Levi, Abbie & Andy

And this is what I ended up doing.  Really did not get a good picture so I just used several of what I had.  I think it turned out OK.

I have 3 sick monkeys.  Carried them to the doctor on Monday and they all have strep.  They are going back to school tomorrow.  I am hoping they do OK.  This is our first dealings with strep.  So far I am not caring for it to much.  I think we will pass on it from now on!  Hopefully!

Going to be busy between now and Christmas So Merry Christmas!  May God bless you in the coming year!

♥World Prematurity Awareness Day! ♥

♥ Today is World Prematurity Awareness Day! ♥ Please wear purple in support of premature babies everywhere, who were born too early to fight for themselves. I am a proud mom of 34 week preemies Abbie (5 lbs), Andy (4 lbs 11 oz) and Levi (4 lbs 6 oz).   They came home together at 11 days old. They just turned 6 and are doing great!

In 1988, RONALD REAGAN named the month of 

October, national Pregnancy and Infant Loss 

Awareness Month.  October 15th is now recognized as 

the international day of awareness. 

In remembrance of my angel babies!

Getting Ready for Halloween!

The monkeys went to the pumpkin patch last week.  I am such a good mom, I forgot the camera, so I don't have any pictures.  But we did carve the pumpkins that they got.  You notice I said "we".  Well they told me what they wanted carved and I was supposed to carve it.  Just in case you can't tell what each one is, one is a dog, one is a cat and one is a jack-o-lantern.   I think Abbie for some reason, picked the smallest one she could find.  I almost did not have enough room to get a mouth on hers!

 This is Levi's dog.  If you are wondering what the big cut outs on the sides are, well those a floppy ears.  Well Levi told me that was what they were!
 Here is Andy's cat.  Notice the whiskers,  It also has ears, pointy ones!
 This is Abbie's jack-o-lantern.  Just for size, notice it is not as tall as the step up going up on the porch.  Another inch or two to work with would have been nice.
 The boys started cutting up wanting their picture made.  They can be so sweet, to be so mean!
 Then Abbie got in to the picture.
 Then I had to get one of them sitting with all the pumpkins.  
 We also tried on the costumes.  Good thing we did.  I have got to take up the boys.  There about 5 or 6 inches to long!  Arms and legs!  So I have got to take them up.  Levi told me that when I did this I have to leave Bumble Bee's feet.  So somewhere on the legs of these things I have to get rid of a lot of material!
This was on Face Book last week.  I had to put it on here!  This is how I feel some (most) of the time.

A friend of mine did this and sent me the link.  I hope this works!

Well I think it is bed time!  Good Night and God Bless Everyone!

August 1st!  This was not a day that everyone was looking forward to.  Two little boys were NOT looking forward to this day.  Miss Prissy, well she was.  She was up and ready to go before we had to.  This did not go over well with the boys!  August 1st was the first day of kindergarten camp!  
We started with breakfast.  This did not go good.  Levi told me what he wanted and that is what I fixed.  I think I must of put the icing on the wrong side of his toaster pastry.  Because he was mad.  As in in the floor having a fit.  He has not pitched this kind of fit in so long.  
 Levi in the floor, mad at me!

 Like I said Abbie was ready for school!  She had missed school since pre-k  got out in May!

Andy, well he was sort of OK.  He was not happy about it, but was dealing better than Levi.  This really surprised me! 

Then everyone got dressed.  I was having to do some fast talking to get the boys to get dressed.  So after much though I told them (Andy & Levi) that lizard and kitty could could go to school with them.  They really look kind of happy here!

Then we get to school...

 Abbie was great!  Found out which class she was in and she was ready to go!  I did not get many pictures.  It was hard to follow Abbie to make hers with the boys attached to eat leg!  

Andy was OK, not good but dealing with it.  

And the Levi.  I think this picture says it all!

There really has not been much going on since school started.  School during the day.  Homework at night and try to spend a little time with each other on the weekends.  It is going by so fast!  
The only bad thing from my point of view is the crap they are catching in school.  The school nurse thought they were getting pink eye.  Nope they didn't but I did.  Then the stomach virus!  YUCK!  No fun what so ever and you know they have to share it and have it one at a time!  Right now I am hoping that we are over the last of that mess!  I thought it was over with.  Abbie was the last one sick and that was this past weekend.   She had complained with her belly ever since she had been sick.  Then last night Abbie woke up screaming and crying.  So off to the ER.  We were there a little over 4 hours.  The doctor told us that it was like her belly had went to sleep while she was sick and it just woke up.  And when it woke up it was quite painful!  She was some better today and has slept good so far tonight.  

The monkeys wanted their picture made a few weeks ago.  
 Levi & Andy
They are getting so big!  It is less than a month and they will be 6 years old.  It does not seem like it has been six years.  
Miss Abbie

I have faced the fact that my babies are in school now.  Most days are good and there is not a lot of tears when they have to go.  They are doing good and are making new friends.  And lizard and kitty are still attending school.  They may get to go for several more years.  If that makes my boys feel better and deal with school better, hey, if they hold up they can have a cap and gown when they graduate high school for all I care!

Right now I am trying to get everything together for their birthday party.  I have no idea of how many kids will be there.  3 classes with around 17 kids in each invited to the party.  Plus everyone else!  Going to be fun!
