Hello everyone!!!!

Heh Ladies!!!! How are you all doing? Sorry I have not been on here yet. But between home stuff and occasionally getting onto BBC to check and post every so often, I don't seem to have time to go anywhere else. I wanted to come on and say hi though. I do have my own blog if you want to link in, but I am not sure if I have the privacy settings right on it. Can anyone help me with some advice on that? I am REALLY new to the whole blogging thing, LOL. I hope to be able to keep up soon. Hope you all are doing fabulous!!! Take care....



You should notice the 'new' blog list on your right. If you do not want your blog listed, let me know so that I can remove you. If you would like to be added, also let me know.

I *hate* to be a downer but I have to ask.....

Why us?? Why did God choose me & my family to go through this? Why did He choose you all?? In light of Joshie's 5th birthday tomorrow, I am happily bittersweet. I am so proud of my boy & how far he has come, how much he has accomplished....but on the other hand, WHY HIM???? He should be out running through the grass on his birthday, playing in the surf....but my son is (happily) cruising around in his walker....because he has CP. It's NOT FAIR!! I'm angry & I'm sad. Does God *really* think I am strong enough to endure all of this.....not to mention my little boy!!!!???? WHY? WHY? WHY? Just when I think I have wrapped my brain around all of this.....a day like this appears out of nowhere. *SIGH* another joy of having a child with special needs.
I'm sorry to be a downer but it's just "one of those days".......perhaps tomorrow will be better but for today.....I will just wonder..............

Candid Camera

I knew that YOU GIRLS would "get this" more than anyone else. The other day, we were at an indoor market place, and Ellie wanted to stand at the railing. I was actually able to leave her there for 30 seconds, and she stood on her own, holding tightly onto the rails! For those 30 seconds, she looked completely "typical". Like any other three-year-old little girl. I actually thought to myself, "wow, she's taller than I realized", because I never see her standing upright, all by herself.

Anyway, it was kinda nice, and I thought y'all would see these pictures in a special light:

Logen Update

I posted an update on my blog about our St Louis trip. The gist- he was put on 4 meds and his seizures have the potential to be fatal. Crappy news!

Play Time :P

I'm excited :) Hannah's Mommy (Trina) is flying in to hang out with us for the weekend!
Watch out Arkansas, here comes trouble :P

**EARTHQUAKE**!!!!! We're safe & sound.....

This morning at approximately 11:42 am So Cal had an earthquake!! I've lived here all my life so this is nothing new, however, this is the 1st "big one" since I had my kiddos & I was terrified!!! 1st instinct was to grab them both & run to the doorway until the shaking stopped. Of course, it didn't faze either of them & they were actually mad that I took them away from "Barney"!!!
The early reports are reporting that it was a 5.8 & centered in Chino Hills which is about 35 miles away. But the shaking was strong & the rumbles were loud! It always amazes me how you can actually HEAR the earth starts out like the earth's stomach is growling & just gets louder & louder!!....SCARY!!
Anyways, we're all o.k....just wanted to let you all know :)

Where Are You?
