Well, I have definitely been doing a really poor job at keeping my blog updated and for those of you who are faithful to check for new updates… I'm sorry!  I blame it ALL on facebook, but I am going to do my best to at least post once a week.  That shouldn't be too hard.  Right?  So, I'm going to do my best to get you all updated.

We had an amazing time in Florida.  It was super hot but we survived and I don't think the kids knew any different.  They didn't know that Disney World could be enjoyed any other way so they had a blast.  I really will post some pictures as soon as I get them from my mom.  She is getting closer to getting them all edited.  I will save the vacation post until I have pictures.  I promise it will be much more fun hearing about our vacation when there are pictures!

I came home and decided that I needed something else to distract me from the pending cardiac cath and most likely surgery that Maggie will have at the end of this month so I am planning a house warming party which involves getting lots of little projects completed like…

When I haven't been enlisting my very agreeable hubby to help me with the above projects, I've been doing fun things like…

SURPRISING MY SWEET GIRL…

WITH A VERY SPECIAL PRESENT SHIPPED FROM DISNEY WORLD…

Maggie's favorite thing at Disney World was the"tastle" so we surprised her with this very detailed castle.  It arrived about a week after we got back and boy was she surprised.  It was a little pricey but I'd spend way more than we spent just to see the look on her face when she opened the box!

Every minute of the day that has not involved one of the above projects, has been filled with worry for this sweet little girl…

Maggie Jane has been so sleepy lately.  She even asked to take a nap on friday evening when we had a houseful of friends and little kiddos over.  She had a 3 1/2 hour nap that day and was still exhausted.  She's been pretty blue lately and has had no energy.  I hate seeing her like this.  Maybe this is God's way of showing me that she truely needs this next repair.  I can't wait to see her full of energy again and pink, pink, pink!

So, this is what has been happening in our lives.  What's happening in yours?
