April Shower Bring May Flowers…Right?!

My little one has been fighting some kind of cold/allergy/virus for the past couple of weeks. Yes, we have taken her to the doctor twice. I am sure Tommy can’t wait to see the bill. He has already said “I told you so” TWICE. The first time she was broken out in hives and had some serious mosquito bites. The on call doctor said that she is probably allergic to pollen & to give her Claritin. We have been trying to keep her in on the HIGH pollen count days, & as soon as we see of feel a mosquito bite, we go in. It is so hard because we all like to be outside. The only place we have found with no mosquitos & pollen…the beach.

We have been several times, the 1st time being March 17th.

Last weekend she started running a low-grade fever & just did not act like herself. We are over the fever now but have a little cough. We took her to the doctor yesterday, just to calm my nerves, (her bday party is this weekend-we don’t want anyone else getting sick) she is fine, not contagious and we are going to KEEP CALM & PARTY ON!

I don’t know what it is but I have not been sleeping well lately. I have been sleeping, but in the mornings I do not feel rested. This morning-totally different. I FEEL RESTED & think I could conquer the world! I think is was the April Showers we had last night. Yeah for sleeping with the windows open on a rainy night. It is a little strange that I feel so rested this morning because I had a nightmare. (I really hate those, don’t you?) It was about Annabelle’s up coming 2nd birthday party. Everything that could go wrong did & the way I reacted was even more surprising. You would have thought I was 2 with the tantrum I threw. I am so embarrassed & hope that her party is perfect! It will not be as big a production as last year, but I think it will still be a lot of fun. My spare bedroom has been collecting things to bring with us for weeks, I just hope I do not forget anything!

Check back for pictures of Annabell’s 2nd Birthday party!

More than Baskets, Bunnies, Chicks & Chocolates

Easter is upon us and Easter is Sunday. Today I just wanted to share some recent  pictures of Annabelle with some song lyrics to help remind us that Easter is more than baskets, bunnies, chicks and chocolates.

Jesus Messiah by Chris Tomlin

He became sin

Who knew no sin

That we might become His righteousness

He humbled Himself and carried the cross

Love so amazing

Love so amazing

Jesus Messiah, name above all names

Blessed Redeemer, Emmanuel

The rescue for sinners

The ransom from Heaven

Jesus Messiah, Lord of All

His body, the bread

His blood, the wine

Broken and poured out all for love

The whole earth trembled and the veil was torn

Love so amazing

Love so amazing

Jesus Messiah, name above all names

Blessed Redeemer, Emmanuel

The rescue for sinners

The ransom from Heaven

Jesus Messiah, Lord of All

All of hope is in You

All of hope is in You

All the glory to You, God

The light of the world

Jesus Messiah, name of above all names

Blessed Redeemer, Emmanuel

The rescue for sinners

The ransom from Heaven

Jesus Messiah, Lord of All

Jesus Messiah, Lord of All

The Lord of All
