oh what a year.

three boys equal a whole lotta noise...laundry muddy shoes and hugs.  the boys have sure kept us busy lately.  Noah...our busy boy our entertainer. well, he recently woke up s a dragon..i go into his room each morning never knowing what to expect...and there he was in his crib wearing his halloween dragon costume headpiece...oh my. he rolled over and growled. man are we aver gonna be in trouble with that one!! Zekey poo...well he is showing his colors more everyday. he is loving having found feet. he runs  everywhere!! he puts his arms behind him as he runs and flaps them!! he also loves to bonk his daddy on the head and giggles wildly!!! Elijah...well, he is learning so much.  we have decided that he needs chores responsibility. So he is emptying the dishwasher..not doing to bad!  the other night while i was tucking him in he told me that he likes going to sleep because he dreams, and dreaming is like watching tv in his head. funny boy.
all the boys are growing so fast in their faith. Our church team is amazing. i love hearing how they know that its JESUS birthday.. Elijah has great memory for the BIBLE stories he is learning. it amazes me. he struggles so in school but, has such a heart for SAMSON and JOSEPH. it makes me so proud. i can see GOD flowing in there hearts.

T and I have been blessed. what has been a rough and stressful year is coming to an end.  our love is strong...our FAITH is mighty. we have vowed to GOD to be here for each other forever...and whats we are gonna do it. we have been slammed in the face many times this year and we keep moving. the stress at times unbearable. Gods mercy has held us though. We both have new jobs and are working harder than ever to provide stability love and fun  :) for our boys.
We have a busy year ahead, more surgeries for Zeke, elijahs tests results, and taming Noah.  im sure we will meet some struggles. with each other our faith and families we Will persevere. i hope your year is as blessed as ours has been. God bless you and keep you and may your house be built on the rock...

so recently a friend wrote about screwing up..being a schmuck. well, I'm pretty sure we have all been there . right?! right.  so whats the point of being a schmuck? ya gotta fix yourself. fix whatever ailment of schmuckiness it is that keeps drawing you back. we all make decisions that are not for the betterment of ourselves and others. make the most out of the decisions you made...bad marriage..evil little tongue that flaps away at others..or just overall bull headed stubbornness. cause the truth is we are all humans and we all are walking this earth learning to be the best person we can be. get over yourself, get on with your life. say I'm sorry ..hug it out, ask for forgiveness. AND REALLY MEAN IT. apologies go a very long way in this busy world we have wrapped ourselves up into. love the ones who love you, get over the ones who don't, and pray for all of the above!

pins and needles and a little thing called nuerofibromitosis

ok so we have all had stress ...some a little some alot... personally i think it sucks.. so immediately after my last post T called me and he had been laid off. REALLY!!! who does that right before the holiday...grr. But, we stayed stead fast in Gods word and he got a new job and a raise. AMEN. God id funny though... ha! his job is in pryor..funny man that God is. We will be a little more specific in our job prayers from now on.  :)
Elijah has gone through some issues this last month that have made us make some tough decisions.. E has sensory processing disorder and a slew of things that go with it. so he is my tender hearted one. he has a hard time separating from me and is developmentally lagging...alot. we have a great team in place to help him to be the best at life that he can be. socially some things are different for him. friends are tough to keep when your heart breaks easily. He does very well with younger children and is MIGHTY  protective of his PEOPLE. (ME)(T) and bubbies...
When Elijah was 1 month old we noticed some birth marks that are a sign of nurofibromitosis (SP). it causes learning delays, blindness , deafness, and tumors that grow on nerve endings. its awful.truly a horrible horrible thing.. we have always know of the genetic test we can do to find out for sure if he has it...but, my heart wasn't ready . not that its ready now...we just need answers. i need to help my baby, i need to plan for what may be in store. my God is awesome and he is holding my heart and making me breath .i pick up the paper work tomorrow and we will go test. it will take several weeks to find out the results.  it will be a long few weeks. if you will hold us in prayer..
