They actually played togehter laughing and pulling each other all over the living room for about 10 minutes!! This is really one of the first times they have played all evening interacting with one another without a fight!! And Bill made dinner to top it all off!!

March of Dimes



Most of you know that my boys were born 10 weeks early. Jackson weighed 3 lbs and Hudson weighed 3 lbs 6 oz. Hudson was put on the ventalator right away and little Jackson only required CPAP. Hudson spent 5 1/2 weeks in the Nicu and Jackson spent 8 weeks due to a complication. My boys are little miracles and we treasure them each day!! God has been so good to my little men, helping them to overcome the all the things that come with being a premie. We praise you Lord God and thank you for your goodness and provision!

Our family has joined Team Adam & Andrew for the March of Dimes! Adam & Andrew are our good playgroup friends (along with twins Lauren, Blake & Kaylie) that were born at 25 weeks. If you want to donate to the March of Dimes to support Premature research and studies please go to my link on the left hand side!

I am attaching some photos of the poster I made for the walking trail that we will be walking in honor of all the premies that have survived their early birth as well as to honor those who braverly fought hard for their early lives and lost.

Marroon & White Game



Bill & I were able to go tp the Aggie scrimage with some of our good friends, the Johnstons, last night!! We had alot of fun cheering for the Aggies and watching the fireworks!! Hudson & Jackson went too--but with my cousin Emily and her hubby Joey!! We had a fun night--thanks Bill & Johnna!

Please Pray for Caleb



We are getting a new nephew named Caleb, he was born this past November in Vietnam. We are asking for prayers to speed up his arrival to the States to be with his new forever family (Bills sister). The US has just passed a law that requires each baby to have its DNA matched to its mothers DNA before they can be adopted. Please pray as this week the DNA test kit is being sent to Vietnam and for everything to go smoothly. Also pray for Calebs birth mom as she sees him again--that she would have peace with her decision to give him up & also for Bill's sister and her family as they have grown to love this little boy & are ready to get him home!!!
