Broken glass and loving gestures.....

I had a busy day yesterday. I worked from 8-4, got home and put potatoes in the oven for a birthday party at my mom's, took the sitter home, got back home around 4:30, and was packing up everything to head to my mom's, and then on to our church softball game at 7:00....busy, busy, busy....

So I had to be at my mom's at 5:00 for supper, and we were right on schedule. I was in my bedroom w/ Olivia and Emmitt and we heard a terrible, terrible crash. We both looked at eachother like, "holy moly, what was that??!"

We came out of my bedroom to find Cameron surrounded by thousands of tiny pieces of glass.

I had made a pan of bars yesterday, and Cam decided he wanted one. He was carrying the whole glass 9x13 to my room so mommy could cut him a bar. Apparently the cover came off and the bars came crashing to the floor.

Oh my, what a mess.

If you have ceramic tile in your home, you know what I'm talking about. If you ever drop something glass on it, it's history.

Obviously, we were late getting to my mom's for the party....it takes a long time to clean something like that up.

No time to take pictures of it w/ 3 little kids running around. The only thing you can think of at that moment is to get the glass off the floor.

Poor Camer felt so bad :(

My mother-in-law happened to call right in the middle of me cleaning it all up. She talked to Olivia and Olivia told her what had happened. When we got home from our ball game, there was a 9x13 pan on my counter w/ a note that said, "Here's a pan for you - I had an extra." What a sweet gesture! I just love her!

Knowing how much I like to bake and need 9x13's, that was just awesome to come home too!

So yeah, quite the afternoon! But all ended well - no cuts or minor injuries! And we won our ball game!!

Surgery went well!

I added some pictures today that I didn't have time
to add on Saturday. You can tell by looking at him
that he went through surgery, his eye looks a little
rough...but he was happy as ever....that's our little
Em.



Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you all know that Emmitt's surgery went very well this morning. Thank you all for your prayers. They were felt. It was still hard handing him over to the nurses, even though it's such a simple procedure. No tears though..... and he didn't even cry! It was over in a matter of minutes. The doc said it was definitely blocked quite bad though, and never would have opened on it's own, so we are glad we had it done. He's doing great today, and we're so glad it's over. No more wiping that eye! Thanks again! God is good.

Beach Bums!

We got to go to a Beach Bums game last week
Friday in Traverse City and had a super fun time.
My parents treated us all-how nice!
It's such a great park, and loads
of fun for the kids. We enjoyed a beautiful
night w/ family.

Here's some pictures!

Prayers for Emmitt

We just wanted to ask for prayers for Emmitt on Friday, Aug. 15. He is having a minor surgery to have a blocked tear duct opened. It's very quick, 3 minutes tops, but he still has to be put under so he lays completely still. We are ready to have it done, he's sick of us having to wipe that eye! So we pray he is healthy come Friday, and that all goes well. Thanks in advance!

Kids are always good for a laugh...

I firmly believe God blessed us with kids because
he knew we'd need a good laugh once
in a while....








And Cam's usually always good for a laugh :}

Hope this can make you laugh today too!
