Greenville Falls

Thank you all so much for your sweet comments! Bill and I are definitely praying about having another baby, but for now, we enjoyed a peaceful day at The Falls with the girls. Bill and the girls gave me a surprise party at my moms on Sunday, and I ate 2 pieces of my favorite cake, Red Velvet! YUM!
I hope everyone has a great week, and say a prayer for my Mallory on Thursday, she is having her tonsils removed.

Not so Happy Birthday to me!

Today has been an awful b-day, and it is only 1:30. This morning I woke up bleeding, and immediately phoned my doctor. The nurse told me to come in right away, so my wonderful sisters and mother took care of the little girls and off I went. After an ultrasound,blood work, and a pelvic exam, I did indeed miscarry. All I could do was sit there and cry. Bill is in Florida, so I had to phone my husband and tell him that we had lost the baby. I am so sad. I was shocked about this pregnancy, but I was also very happy. I know I have been blessed with 4 beautiful healthy girls, but my heart still hurts, and it leaves me so confused! I didn't realize how much I really wanted another baby. Do I maybe try again later, or is this God letting me know, that maybe I need to be done? I wish he had an audible voice.

Slow down!

I just came across this picture, and it always cracks me up! Mallory is holding on for dear life, and Madison could care less, as long as she gets a good smile for the camera. My sweet girls. You know a boy will not make it in this house with all of these girls! They would give him Pink Piggies!

Mom and Me

I wanted to share with you a few pictures from The Greenville Woman's Music Club luncheon. My mother is President and Co-Founder, and I was so proud and honored to be her guest. Thank you Mom for a wonderful afternoon!

My dress was way too big, and I had to keep pulling my scarf over my chest so I would not embarrass my mom by hanging out at the Woman's Club! I look like I was expecting a snow storm! Little did they know, I am expecting something, but it's not snow!!!!

I need a new blog name!!

Alexandrea Grace 3/19/08 I can not believe I will be doing this again, but I sure can't wait! Yes I am pregnant! Bill and I are very shocked, and we were not planning on having any more children. I will be 35 on April 23, and he is gone ALL THE TIME with work, but obviously God's plan is bigger than ours. I just gave all of my maternity clothes away, and donated all of Allie's bottles, and a crib, to Goodwill. It always seems to happen that way,doesn't it?! I am getting mixed responses from family and friends (because I will now have 5 kids), but all I can think about are those ladies that can't even have children. I also think about my blog friends Lori and Carolina Girl that have been waiting and waiting for that special little baby girl, that God has led them to adopt. This reminds me that I am truly blessed to not have any trouble getting pregnant. I want to take this opportunity to thank God for blessing me with 4 beautiful, healthy daughters, and I pray daily for baby #5. I have been blessed more times than I deserve, and for that, I thank God daily! Have a great week ladies.
I guess now I need to figure out how to get that baby ticker for my blog. I also want to have a poll to guess boy or girl! I would bet on pink !

Wordless Wednesday

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a great Easter. Bill flew in on Thursday and stayed until Monday. We had a great time, and great food! We had lunch at my sister's house and then enjoyed MANY egg hunts! We are having so much fun here in SC , and I am so blessed to have such wonderful family around me! Have a great week!
The lighting is horrible, but it is the only one of the entire clan!
Momma with all of her chicks!
Allie looks so tiny sitting next to her Daddy!

My sweet Mallory! Her tonsils are scheduled to come out April 29th.

Mallory cracks me up with that smile. I think Allie is about to fall asleep, and Madi is so ready to dig into her Easter candy she has hiding in her hand!

These girls are keeping me so busy. Thank God we are still in SC so my family can help me out. Allie Grace is scheduled for a VCUG next week. Madi has an appointment with a cardiologists on April 8th because the Dr heard a swooshing sound in her heart when she had a check-up and Ashlyn has an ultra-sound Friday to check on her kidney reflux, and poor Mallory has now been scheduled to remove her tonsils this month because they have almost completely closed her airway! Bill flew up last weekend, and will be coming again tomorrow. He is already in Tampa. Thank God all of my family lives within minutes. This has been one HELL of a 2 weeks! I will let you know how my babies do next week.
