You know it has been madness....

When I go an entire week without posting! Here are some highlights....

Monday- Happy Birthday Kaden! Kyle must have gotten so excited that he barfed...
literally.... yes.... stomach virus in the Cantrell house.... it was FANTASTIC! We postponed
Kaden's birthday supper we had planned and we improvised... 2 candles in an Easter Debbie cake...
JD said "He is definitely the third child" Granny brought him a happy meal and Granna brought him presents
so it was all good.


Dee called me that night to tell me my daddy was real bad- as in so bad he could not get up off the couch
or pick up a cup to get a drink. We did get  him to the hospital Wednesday night after much persuasion and the Lord made a way. That is a testimony I will save for later.

Thursday JD's dad brought Kaden his birthday presents and he brought Kaylee and Kyle a surprise too. The kids had a good time playing outside with him- and of course they loved the gifts :) Kaden was reading the book that he got him... in his own language of course!


Friday I made mad dash to get Easter stuff ready (because Easter was later than ever and I still let it slip up on me) Got it all done.... oh except for the incident with Kaden's birthday cake- it accidentally got thrown away because of some miscommunication with Costco bakery employees... but they made me another one while I waited... ) Friday night- had Kaden's birthday supper- he had fun and I am still not sure he got the point that it was HIS birthday... he sang to himself :)




Granna brought Easter baskets for everyone. This was Karsyn's first trip to our house.

and everyone colored eggs while they were here (can you say VERY action packed night!)



Saturday we let the kids play outside a little too long without sunscreen... OUCH... but they had fun and wasn't near as bothered by their sunburns as Granna and Granny were.... :) Took the kids to see Daddy because Kaylee was worried to death about him. They (he and the kids) all enjoyed the visit- especially when Daddy started handing out Reese's cups to the kids whom were all ready for church  :)

Kaden fell asleep in the tub when we were getting ready ..see the sunburn... ;(


Sunday we celebrated Easter all day! Got up early , got ready early , did a photo shoot before church, thought we were leaving in time to do pics at church before service started... ummmm... NOT.... flat tire on the Expedition sent us scrambling with carseats and cleaning out JD's Honda to make it JUST in time for church.... Did I expect anything different? No, not really! Getting ready early in this house always has disaster written all over it! I will do an Easter post next... too many pics to add to this crazy post....
Sunday night Mrs. Karsyn made her debut at church! I got a pic on my phone but learning how to get it from my phone to this computer isn't something I see happening. She looked gorgeous :) I did get one before church...

Yesterday I thought I was cleaning houses I had to skip last week but as I headed out to do so I got the call that Dad was being discharged from the hospital so I headed out there to help with all of that. PRECIOUS PRECIOUS Dee and Rod are letting him stay with them while he recovers. I can't say enough about how good they are..... (I would have brought him with me but my steps going into my house just aren't possible for a person who can barely walk) Thank the Good Lord in Heaven above that Daddy is doing alot better! I appreciate every prayer!

Today..... hopefully tackling the tornado of a house I am sitting in at the moment and tending to two little ones in the middle of it all.

And now when you see me and I have grey hair and worry lines- you will know why (and it won't be because I am old because I am 29 FOREVER :)
Happy Tuesday :)

Text the picture to your email. Instead of putting in a phone number, put in your whole email address. Then just save it to your computer from your email.

Imagine a 8 week old baby with a sunburn and see how upset grandparents get! I think they called it child abuse! LOL

Craziness in deed!!! I'm glad your dad is doing better, I didn't know he was sick, and the picture of Kaden in the bathtub is my favorite! I love it!!! Bless his heart with his mean ole parents wearing him out and burning his precious little skin, no wonders Granna and Granny were so upset! LOL!

I enjoyed ur testimony Sun pm. It reminded me of how God truly helped me with my Dad years ago. I pray that your Dad continues to improve.
