Quick Update - We are Back Home!

Bear had everyone gather around his iPad for this fun shot during a stretch break.
We are all safely home.  We take Sugar to doctor on Monday.  For now she is recovering fine.  Thank you for all the prayers.
Beautiful and Adorable hated their car seats by the time we got home.  

 Thank you, Thank you!

Driving Home

Houston and St. Louis are just too far from each other. Again I was very thankful to have had Goobers there to help me with the driving.  The Twins were not as good on the way back.  They were so tired of those very uncomfortable car seats.
Mimi was so sad to see us leave.  I suspect she will miss the twins and not the rest of us.  Just kidding, I know she was happy to have her quiet home back.  Thanks to Mimi for letting us stay with her.  

Bear grabbed a shot while we let the twins escape their seats for a few minutes.
We were so happy to arrive home safely into Pooker and J's arms.

Weary Travelers Return

Bear's gift to Fr. Tom.  Now on the window at the rectory.  Not sure what it means except they all scare me.  

I am so glad that they arrived home safely.  Sugar had a scary time with her second allergic reaction.  I wish I could help her more. We will be visiting allergist and possible alternative medicine to see if there is any help for her out there other than reacted post life threatening reaction.
They came home to a nice Sunday Mass with Fr. Tom on the alter.
Saying good is always so hard.  Thanks for returning them Father.

The March For Life 2013

I did not go on the March so these pictures are all stolen from Bear, Goobers and her friend from St Louis, MK.

As much as they enjoyed the trip; that is NOT what motivated them to save their own money to make this trip happen.  My children have seen the beauty in life.  I am so thankful that I have been blessed to be the mom of such wonderful children.  Their hearts know that God loves all life even the smallest unborn child.  So many lost lives, God forgive us all!  As bad as the world is I see HOPE in the future.  The estimates are that there were 650,000 people at the March this year, mostly young people.  Thanks for the pictures guys.

Prayers Please

I was so arrogant to not post sooner.

Every year for the past four years, I have driven my kiddos up to St. Louis so that the older ones could buddy up with Fr. Keller's parish and go on the March for Life.  Every year there is a threat of attack to keep us away.  Those demons do not want us to stand up for life.  We always have issues that might keep us from going.  In the past we have had money issues (like money in the bank disappearing - no joke), car trouble and illness.  This year things were going very smoothly.  I have arrogantly figured that we were good.

The March if over and the teens are on their way back.  Well the bus that my kids are on had to make a stop last night at the emergency room.  Apparently my precious daughter Sugar was deep in the throws of an allergic reaction to shellfish.  After the epi pen was used she was breathing calming again.  She was cleared quickly to return on the bus home.  I guess I just didn't think that the attacks would come after the March.  Please continue to pray for the family.  Possible also twisted her foot.  So this poor girl is walking around on the splint with her hand already in a cast.

Pray pray pray, please.  Remember especially Sugar and Possible.  I am sure we will be home within the next few days.  Thank you.

Waiting for Big Kids To Return

Miss Brenda, Uncle Joe and I debating life.  I loved that.
Again I found lots of pictures that Princess has taken of herself.
Uncle Joe spending time teaching Bagel about boxing.
Mimi cuddles her babies, this time it was Beautiful.
I loved the double seats at Sams.  It is hard to tel who is who with their heads covered.
Beautiful - Bagel - Adorable
I think that is how it goes.
Loving our Miss Connie Time.

  We can't wait for the big kids to come back.
