What's Going On...

5 Things I Do Every Day, Without Fail
----------------------------------------------
1. Watch the Today show while getting ready for work.
2. Have breakfast with my little boy...how wonderful!
3. Open my blinds and let the Sunshine shine in on us
4. Call my husband at work and say Good Morning
5. Thank God for ALL our many blessings

So, my parents went to Outback for my mom's birthday. I was SO in the mood for a takeout of their Shrimp on the Barbie appetizer. Mike went and "got gas" while I put Hunter to bed last night and this was what he brought back. We had a little party and it was DELICIOUS! I thought it was SO sweet that he did that. We had scrumptious shrimp and some of the best fresh baked bread with their mouth watering special sauce. YUMMY! This is the card I made for my grandparents for their 60th Wedding Anniversary and Mike's Grandparent's 70's Wedding Anniversary. They are all so wonderful and I'm so thankful for them. We see them faithfully every week, in addition to my grandmother who's in a Nursing Home. The blessings that we reap are just as much for our well being as theirs. It TRULY gives us so much joy to spend time with them.
This is my dear friend, Melissa at her Baby Shower this past Sunday. We went to High School together and have remained in contact ever since. She's expecting a Baby Girl in August. I'm so excited for her! This is Melissa's sister Lindsay with Melissa and their mom, Mrs. Stief. What a wonderful family! They are so nice!!
I love this picture of Lindsay. She is SO pretty and I love to see her smile!!
Someone had made this cake for her and I'm talking WONDERFUL. Cream Cheese Frosting, Apricot fruit filling (I think) and sweet as sugar!!
And these are the 2 new items I picked up from Ross...
This tea length dress is SO stylish for the season and I love the way it feels!
$12.99!!
My NEW bikini...WOW...I haven't wore one of these for years!! I'm loving it!!
$11.99
So, that's what's been going on the last week or so. We were supposed to go camping but because of the following prayer request we are going to postpone. I was looking forward to going but also looking forward to staying home and getting some things done. Our grass needs cutting and I'd like to rest at home. I REALLY want to scrap some Saturday night. We might go see Spider man 3 and we'd like to go to the local Farm nearby. Hunter has never been and I'm sure he'll love it. I LOVE to see his little face light up:)
A Couple Prayer Requests

Our grandfather, Pa Pa may have suffered a small stroke this past Sunday and is going through a time right now. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
Our Aunt, Ellen gives of herself every day to take care of our Granny and Pa Pa. I don't know how she does it; She is TRULY an Angel. Please pray for her strength. I know she works so hard and I admire her in so many ways. She doesn't just take care of them...She is WONDERFUL to them! God Bless You!!

My Mother and Father In Law's dog, Cocoa is very sick. We've known that he has Cancer and a while back he had some surgery for tumors. Right now, he is having trouble going to the bathroom by himself and they don't know anything yet. Dogs are JUST like people and I'm sure all of you can relate to what they mean to us. Please just keep them in your prayers. I know it's tough right now ..
Thanks everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. Hope everyone has a good week. It's been HOT here and stormy looking but so far, not much rain. We could use the rain. Well, I'm headed to bed. Goodnight!
