I am asking everyone to please pray for my SIL, April, she is having heart surgery this morning to repair a hole in her heart. She is at Ochsner in New Orleans, and the surgery is to begin around 11 a.m. For the past couple of months, she has been having migraines and went to a neurologist who ran test after test and determined she has a blood clot on her brain. Well, after she found out she had a blood clot, another doctor came in and told her that she has a hole in her heart that didn't close after birth. Apparently, some babies are born with a hole in the upper or lower septum of the heart that eventually closes after birth, and they lead a normal and productive life. The doctors are still not clear as to why April hasn't shown symptoms of this before; but only God knows why. Please pray that the surgery goes well and pray for April's quick recovery. I am going to say a prayer also. "Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that YOU will guide the surgeon's hands this morning and bring a full and quick recovery to April following the surgery. May all her fears be gone and and may she know YOU are always with her and that YOU will never abandon nor forsake her. In Jesus Mighty Name I pray, Amen." Thank you all so much, and I will let April know that everyone is praying for her!

Elizabeth is the first granddaughter for Wade's parents, and believe me, she is spoiled rotten (especially by me :)). After buying gifts for our 4 nephews for the past 9 years, it has been sooo much fun shopping for a little girl! Everytime I go shopping, it seems like I am buying for Elizabeth instead of me, and she's not even mine! I don't mind though! I told Wade we will be broke if we have a little girl! haha They have so many cute things for girls- bows, headbands, dresses and little cute shoes- Carey, I'm sure you can back me on this one :)! Now onto some pictures...this is Leslie and Elizabeth around Christmas when she was four months old. I can't believe she will be 1 in two months!
We kept Elizabeth overnight for Brad and Leslie while they were at a work function, and Wade and Elizabeth watched TV all night! It amazed me how still and attentive she was in front of a TV!
We just love it when she coos and laughs! It is the sweetest sound!

Okay, so I have been trying to finish this blog for the past three months. All of these widgets and codes are soooo different from facebok and myspace that it really took me three months to sit down and figure it out. With my busy work schedule, I haven't had the time to finish it until now. Wade is downstairs doing yoga (or something similar ;)) which is part of his new workout, P90X, so I've had free time for the past hour or so. I will be posting plenty of updates and pics soon!
