birthday cupcakes and doctor days…

I wrote a post this afternoon–that I just couldn’t finish. I think I need to think on it more and I’ll share tomorrow. My heart is being burdened more and more…and I will have to share my thoughts as well as an amazing way you can join me in making a difference. I SO love my blog readers and those whose hearts also bleed…who are kept up at night for serving the orphan, the widow and the poor. Maybe I’ll have my thoughts finished tomorrow after I sleep on this one.

FOR NOW…I’ll keep it light. I’ll say I think we have busted the cocoon. Really, I’ll confess–I’m pretty much a home body now days ANY WAY…I have 2 little ones who nap 2x a day–so there isn’t much time to go out any way! BUT we are getting out when we can. Isaac is doing GREAT when we do—and he even made his appearance at a neighbor’s 1 year party where we think he was a hit!

Later in the weekend–Frank taught us a new way to eat Cheezits. He likes to dip his Cheezit in his strawberry yogurt…

Does anyone else think this is gross…or is it just me?!

And speaking of birthdays…we got to have our family celebrate Mr.Parker last night. Haven’t you heard that cupcakes are the new thing? SMART daddy was on top of it and brought cupcakes home for everyone without my even asking!!! He knows momma has enough on her mind…love my honey for his remembering details like this!

Everyone got to pick out their own cupcake…and of course Parker got to choose first…

P wanted to turn the lights out for the full effect:)

Singing happy birthday to my children—oh such a sweet moment for this mom!!! AND then I get to do it ALL over again on Saturday with family and his friends:) Watch out skeeballers–this momma is going to be on the lose on Saturday night! Is there any rule that a birthday hostess shouldn’t play skee ball all night during the party???

And…make a wish!Parker told me after he blew out the candles that he didn’t make a wish because wish making is for girls;).

Whew…what a week so far! THIS week we have doctor appointments EVERY day (minus Monday!). Pediatrician today, lab work tomorrow, ENT on Thursday and physical therapist on Friday. Isaac is really doing well at all these doctor appointments and hopefully really soon we’ll have some relief for all these ear infections and we’ll know what is causing all of his congestion. One day at a time here…and we’re just so thankful for each sweet day of improvements and even giggles.

Looking forward to sharing tomorrow…and praying many of you will join me in a few fun projects ahead to make a really big difference in the lives of widows and orphans!!!

My kiddos think cheeze-its and yogurt are a delicacy! I’m with you on the gross side, but they love it. 🙂

Cheez-its and yogurt? I’m not so sure about that one… Good luck at the doctor’s visits and physical therapy- Isaac is a miracle! Can’t wait to read your post tomorrow… your blog is always so inspiring!

Oh…feeling the ear infections, fluid and congestion with you! Living the dr appt’s with ya too! Abby is up every 2 hours and I am now hoping that since our dr. found her ear drum (after removing globs of wax) to discover the infection, we will get some sleep soon when her antibiotic kicks in. Will go to ENT but doc. said tubes-90%. I was thinking of you in the night and praying for your sleep or lack of…strength for the season. It is glorious tho, isn’t it! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. that I finally got to adopt after all these years!!!!
