When did my dad become an old fart?

I just wanted to ask for prayer for my dad. A couple of weeks ago, he went to the doctor to get checked out do to some unusual symptoms. It turns out, he has some blockages to his heart and parts of his heart aren't getting enough blood. SO... on Monday, 10/4, he will have a heart cath. Thee doc will go into one of his arteries via his wrist. They will scope out the situation and take it from there. The doc suspects this to be a routine. There are many things that they could find once he is actually looking at the arteries, but some are a bit to overwhelming for me to discuss here. So, please pray for my Dad. I greatly appreciate it!

Poor Collin

Poor Collin!! He was dancing and fell face first on a really hard floor. His open mouth hit the ground before his feet returned to the ground. OUCH!! The stuff around his lips is dried blood. It was a pretty bloody scene. The dentist seems to think that if the teeth don't fall out, he will be okay. If he does lose a tooth (or 2), because he is only 3, he will probably have to have a spacer put in. I pray that he won't have to deal with that.

Here you can (kinda) see how puffy his little lip is.
Poor Baby!

Disney On Ice

On Sept 23rd, my Mom, the boys and I made the drive to Cincinnati to see Disney on Ice, 100 Years of Magic! It was amazing. We were invited, by the wonderful folks at Mom Central to a meet and greet before the show. It was so great! The boys immediately scoped out the wonderful Disney gifts they were given!

The loved their Mickey ears Crown! The event had just started and they were having a blast! Then...

Minnie and Mickey came into the room and their excitement reached a whole new level!

They were in Heaven!

Noah was trying to make Mickey wave at the camera.
Collin had to do EXACTLY what Noah was doing, of course.

Here we are waiting for the show to begin. The seats were amazing and I felt so blessed to be there.
Noah took a pic of me in his Mouse Ears Crown.

It's too bad Grandma and Collin weren't excited. (Daddy was originally going to go with us, but h was on call. Thankfully Grandma was happy to step in.)

Show time!

Goofy, Donald Duck, Minnie, Mickey, Chip and Dale all started the show!

Pure joy! Priceless.

Beauty and the Beast.

This is when Noah and Collin's heads exploded from the excitement of being in the room with their FAVORITE movie characters! If you have ever met Noah, you already know he is a cowboy and he loves Woody and Collin proudly declares his LOVE for "BiteYear" (Buzz Lightyear) all the time! This part of the show was one of my favorites. SO well done!


They were so great!

AND JESSIE from Toy Story 2!! Can I get a Woot Woot?!?!?! It was so amazing to watch these talented skaters glide, jump and spin around the rink w/ such grace and ease. Beautiful.

This was an amazing part of the show. They recreated "It's a small world". I didn't have many pics turn out well from this part of the show. It was really wonderful and so much fun. Leave it to Disney to bring the light parade to us! It was so cool!

This was the end of the show. Collin was waving goodbye to Buzz. This is the most he moved during the entire show! He was so shocked that he was seeing what he was seeing that he was almost frozen!
Buzz, Woody and Jessie take one last spin around the ice. All of the characters came out at the end.
The Incredible's.
A great time was had by all!

When we left the US Bank Arena, two mounted Cinci Police officer's were outside. They were kind enough to let us get a pic!

Clean bill of health

I am happy to announce that I am officially healed from kidney surgery. I cannot begin to put into words all that I have learned this year. Oh who am I kidding, I am a blogger so I will try! There are many things that come to mind as I reflect on the last year. I have often spoken of the things I learned on this here bloggity blog, but the biggest thing I have learned is how God is exactly who he says he is. He is strong when I am weak. He is comfort when I am sad. He sustained me. He loved me. He never left, even when I gave up. I was in able to handle the entire ordeal, ONLY by his grace, and I survived. I thrived. I suffered. I faultered. I got angry. I was disappointed. I am healed. If I really evaluate the entire situation, I think my heart healed more than my kidney. I will always have my 12 - 14 inch incision to remind me of the surgery that saved my life. I will never forget the amazing love and support I had from my hubby, parents, sister, BFF and many others. Please know I thank you all, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, for helping my family through this year. I really believe I would not be here if it weren't for the prayer and support from so many of you. Thank you! I love you all.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE teaching my boys in a school setting. It has made such a difference in their learning and mine. I love to watch them "get it". I love when Noah taps Collin on the shoulder to say, "Look Brother, look what I did!". I love when Collin holds up a piece of construction paper, cut to smitherines, and proudly exclaims," Look Noan ( not a typo, it is how he says his name) I did it! I did it!" . It is amazing and I am so thankful for the opportunity to stay at home with the boys and daily go on this journey with them! Praise the Lord!
