MawMaw and Addison

MeMe, Addison & MawMaw

Addison and MawMaw on Saturday right after surgery

Addison and MawMaw on Sunday

(She was doing much better)

*I would like for you to take time to pray for MawMaw, she is battling a terrible disease of the mind. Alzheimer's. She needs your prayer for the next few weeks at least, during this hospital stay and therapy. She doesn't remember falling and doesn't understand why she can't just go back to her room @ HomeStyle. Please Pray! Thank You!

Wishes do come true...

Well sort of. Addi and I went to Arkansas with MeMe this weekend to visit MawMaw (Mrs. Linda's mom). MawMaw lives in a nursing home/ assited living home called Homestyle. She fell Thursday evening and broke her hip so she had to have surgery. Mrs. Linda asked Addison and I to go with her and after much thought we decided to venture off. This was Addisons first trip and first time to stay away from home. The drive itself is 6 1/2 hours, but with a baby an two woman who have to make frequent bathroom breaks, it takes a little longer. We left Lake Providence Friday @ 3 and arrived @ The Hampton Inn @ 11:30. Addison did GREAT! MawMaw had surgery Saturday morning and it went great. We got to see all of MeMe's family, which was wonderful and way past due. We got up Sunday morning to visit MawMaw again and took off about 1:15 and got home about 9:30. Yeah, needless to say I AM EXHAUSTED!!!

Anyway back to the snow wishes...When we got to Springdale there was snow on the ground. YEAH! And Saturday it snowed almost all day. So I bundled up my baby and ploped her down in the middle of a pile of snow and snapped a few shots of her first snow.

Still wishing for snow...

I loved these pictures. She looked so big and thought she was when I put her in the rocker. And the pjs are adorable. We are still wishing for snow too build that snowman. Just wanted to share...


Everyone knows that when a child opens a gift its the cardboard box (or the paper) that they love the most. Just give the child cardboard and they can have the most fun. Well who would have thought a 6 month old would get so excited over a paper towel roll.
