Easter Eve 2008

Saturday was a busy day.. we went to Bill morris park where the radio station and one of the churches had a giant easter egg hunt and all kinds of activities.. Jameson would not hunt in her age group and i could not help her so she was scared so no eggs for her.. cole he got some eggs.. they rode horses and got on all the inflatable activities.. and got there faces painted.. Jameson got a butterfly and Cole got on one side of his face a G and the other side a F with a cross through it.. if you are a dawg fan then you know what that means... he thought of that himself....

i love these layouts

If you all don't know by now I love my mother in law.. she is such a kind and amazing woman.. i got really lucky to have David and his family.. i remember the day i found out the results of the biopsy i was at work calling on my break to find out.. it wasn't good.. and i knew things were going to change in all of our lives.. and they did.. Lillian was very sick when she started with the strong chemo.. i looked forward to the 2nd week when she got her strength back and was feeling better.. nothing is really normal when you are going through chemo.... my heart just broke when i knew she was hurting so bad and so weak.. and then come to find out she could not be there when ivy was born.. that really broke my heart.. and we had to stay an extra day in the hospital.. we were all looking so forward to lillian seeing ivy.. i know how much she loves her grandchild and the idea of her noth being there was heartbreaking.. lillian decided she would go to the hospital window and look at her i guess when you are desperate to see your grandchild you will do anything.. and then the next day we got to leave the hospital and lillian had to go to savannah for a doctors appointment so we had to wait again.. i have to say i cried in the hospital when we found out we had to stay another night.. i was just so excited to be leaving so lillian could see her new granddaughter..
so this year for our relay for life i really want to support what ever i can to help find a cure for cancer.. cole is taking money up for his school for relay for life and i am sure our church will to if you all would like to help let me know..
love you lillian.. and this post is for you for all you do for me and for our children.. also butterflies are a symbol for new beginnings and the layout i did with you and ivy is a new beginning in life and recovery..

i am getting busy with layouts

i am gradually doing more layouts of Ivy.. i need too.. i have so many wonderful photos but not enough time.. any babysitters out there?? Ivy doesn't like to sleep much during the day so this is a great accomplishment when i don't have much time to even wash dishes.. unless she is sitting on the counter in her Bumbo chair.. she gets really upset if she doesn't see me either.. i am thinking it might be seperation anxiety..

well went back to the my post op check up at Dr Davis office.. and the nurse says take it easy.. and rest.. well i can't with a newborn and 2 children and a husband to take care of.. i am not eating heavy foods still kind of bland most of the time.. i did have mexican the other day just chicken and mushroom quesdilla though pretty bland there.. no margarita for me though.. wish i could just have one.. so i go back next week.. i think she is a little concerned about my "bottom" sickness (if you know what i mean) still having that since surgery.. i really don't want to go there though okay.. just get my drift this is not easy recovery for me.. having a baby is very easy recovery for me.. and taking it easy is not exactly what i am doing right now.. i have alot of house work and if i don't do it who will.. so if you come to my house and see it is a mess it isn't that i don't want to clean it means there are more important things on my table like.. holding Ivy all day and taking a little time to scrapbook when i can.. i do cook though.. and at least wash the dishes.. that is one thing that has to be done..

the kids

it was finally nice outside and the azaleas are blooming so took some pictures of the kids in front of the azalaes.. ivy is drooling so her shirt is wet which is kind of funny.. cole is in love with ivy.. saturday morning i was making breakfast and i asked him to go to the bedroom to check on ivy and he comes carrying her.. that was the first time i really realized that he is big enough to carry her.. he really enjoys it too.. cole is a big help and she loves every minute of it..
Today is also dress myself day for jameson so she decided to wear this today.. doesn't she like to pose.. she loves the camera and she was posing away in all different ways.. she is just too funny.

have a great day

i did Ivys first layout today

This is her first page in her album and i am pretty proud of it.. i am in love with this photo that Trish Armstrong did.. there is something about her being in Davids hands that i adore. I just wish i had gotten this photo for Jameson when she was a newborn.. There wasn't alot of good photos this day because she wasn't happy.. That was before the meds. I am finally getting back to feeling better and getting my energy back everyday so hopefully i can catch up on all the photos i want to do layouts on.. i hope you like it..

bike parade today

today at jamesons school was a bike parade.. we walked around the block and everyone rode there bike.. some even decorated them.. i forgot to decorate jamesons.. but it was really fun..

Cole has been taking tennis lessons on mondays from Mr Bob Boyles.. he is very talented at tennis.. and he loves playing too.. this spring he is not playing baseball he wants to play football instead.. which i am not fond of him playing but i am going to let him play this year to let him understand it isn't easy for a little boy his size..

so here are some pictures of the kids..
