School's Back In...Busy Busy Busy...

First of all....Yep I moved on up to the 15 seater van: Oh, and I don't know HOW we survived with out it...We all SO LOVE IT!! Seriously, we can fit our entire fam plus any friends that want to ride home with really is a fabulous ride!!! It took me a while to find one with NO CLOTH SEATS (cause my kiddos would ruin it in a minute)...but I found it...and IT IS NOW OURS!!!!! :) And, on to other news:

**School is BACK IN SESSION...I have 3 in school and 3 at HOME....Here our my big 3 on their first day holding up the GRADE they are starting:
They had a GREAT first day...We love all their teachers and they are SO excited to be back in school...but I'll miss them...I get so used to them ALWAYS being around...BUT these crazy 3 babies will certainly keep me busy at home:
I feel like I have triplets some days...yet Baby Wes is the work of about 4 kiddos right now trying to keep HIM SAFE...He's 4 weeks POST SURGERY TODAY...Praise the LORD!!! But he certainly doesn't even realize he had a HUGE surgery and he stays busy running and keeping me on my toes:We go back Monday where they'll remove his bandages and tell me HOW they feel things are healing...His one eye STILL isn't back to I'll be checking on that...but he feels wonderful and is CUTE AS PIE:
And, this cutie 2 year old WACKED him on the head with a Light Saver toy thing yesterday...and I about passed out and asked her: "lucy lane WHY would you hit your brother in the KNOW he has a broken head?" She said, "Cause Mommy he was BOTHERING me!!"
He was FINE...but keeping him safe takes a LOT of work :)
And, how can you stay mad at this face very long...she's seriously the craziest, funniest child alive:
And, I caught her going in for the kiss on baby brother too:

If I survive these 3 babes with out having a heart attack it might be a miracle!! LOL :)
So, as you can is BUSY BUSY BUSY right now!! But I wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything...

*After we see Wes's head specialist on Monday we head over to another specialist for another evaluation for something else they found wrong on my baby boy!! They have actually found a couple of other "lesser important" birth defects when compared to his HEAD SURGERY... but they must be taken care of too...So, unfortunately my boy will be put back to sleep soon to deal with these other things... But as the drs. said..this will be NOTHING compared to what we've already been through...and we'll probably go home the same day!! The next surgery isn't scheduled yet...but it is in the works!! My BIGGEST prayer is that his big Cranial surgery worked and he won't require another one of those...something like 3 % require ANOTHER surgery...praying hard that we're in that 97%!!! I'll keep you posted if anything like that comes about....but for now...I'll be focusing on these smaller things we have to take care of..and enjoying getting back into the school swing and such!!!

***Thank you so much for your prayers and support....Hope you all are getting BACK into the school groove too...I can't believe summer is over!! :( Be back soon....Happy Thursday to you all, kj


  1. Praying for all of you and especially little Wes.

  2. Love the van! I can totally see you driving it! :) So glad Wes is doing well! Will keep praying for him!

  3. You have a beautiful family. I'll admit that I am pretty jealous of the van. I've been looking at big passenger vans the same way my husband looks longingly at Corvettes as they pass by.

  4. Congrats on your monster van - as we call in at my house.. I love mine :) I'm jealous that you found one with leather though !!

  5. Such a beautiful and happy family of yours. God bless you and your family.

  8. How are you? It has been awhile since we heard and I wondered what the Dr's said when you took Wes back. I am sure you are busy with all those precious chidren driving around in that bus!!!

    Also wondered about your nephew and if there is any word.
