True Admiration ...

For this woman....
has pulled me out of my hiatus to post....Just for you Edie....

We have never met face to face but I know her, she has stepped away from her career (a doctor ya'all) to home school her girls, she adores her MacDaddy and her older little's, Loves the Lord, can decorate with the best of them and is an awesome inspiration...she feels like a best friend....

Edie did this, this and ahhh  this is so me...oh and this made me laugh!

and then this happened and I can't go to her blog or facebook and not sob for her pain because she is my friend....

Like that sweater you never want to let go of because it makes you feel good, warm and cozy....
Today, well now it was yesterday, it's her birthday!

Because of this post I ran right out and bought this....

I was going to insert my aqua vintage stapler....but I don't have time for that right now because I have to get this up!! So that Edie knows....I adore her! I love that she makes me feel better about who I am or who I can be! If I were there Edie I would carry you, I would give you that best friend sweater off my back....to keep you warm and safe!

We know you will be alright, we Thank God he allowed you all to remain here on this green earth to continue your GOOD!!!


So, for my few little followers please go visit Edie and wish here a very very Happy Birthday!

With a Grateful heart

Do you see it??








There, through the window



Look closely







It's out there





Look at that baby, all excited


 waiting for me to open the door


 for her to run and hug that box


Do you know what it is yet?



Yep, Madigan's chair came


Boy oh boy .....



She was so happy



We couldn't wait for daddy to get home


I was as excited as she was....





She was hugging the box in the first picture

and trying to lift it in the second one...

we had to open it NOW....


(small disclaimer: she is 100% girl, 
I apologize for the lip gloss and eye shadow,
 now you know what she does in her down time)




There were not that many parts....


couldn't be too complicated


Right??


I even had a helper....


with funny make up **sigh it'll be cute when she gets married



Thank the good Lord my husband pulled in

as we were trying to attach the back
axel...

I could have done it

If I were to have taken steriods most of my adult life

But I am weak....

So Daddy O did it...


amazing man that he is!!




She was very affraid of it


at first....

It's a big girls ride....


not your average yugo...


this baby is a real carriage.....


Fit for a princess....

Maybe even her possie will

be able to ride with her.....



It is ......


Awesome!!!

She loves it!!!

Thank you to everyone....
Jen for doing the fundraiser and to those of you who jumped
as soon as word got out there...
Hot tears run down my face as I type....

I never imagined we would have so many people who




Love us


and.....



Love her  ♥

Amazing child

Madigan is such an amazing child....
as you can see she has amazing all around her. She has the strongest brother and sister....
They support her in everything she does....even squabbling






This baby was in her hospital gown, ready for surgery and still this is what I caught on "film".

Her day ended with this but she still had her fun personality, she is a delight.




These last two are just random from last week.....
still fun!!
Thank you all for the prayers and love!!
