we have been staying busy lately... nothing too exciting happening but i have a few new pics so i thought i could blog a little! i admire terri for taking pics of the 4 monkeys, i think she does it weekly just trying to get 1 good one! i love this pic b/c all the babies are smiling, except for lala who's eating a pretzel!! (i don't blame ya girl!) our babies are not really babies anymore, even laura grace will turn one in october! but then my baby lucas will be coming soon and rach's baby too! i can't wait!!! trace will be such a great big brother (and cousin!) see???
i served at a women's retreat: birmingham tres dias # 19, this past weekend. it was great to be around my sisters in christ and to see god move and change lives! just to get away and be at the camp with these cool temps was so nice. it was hard leaving trace though, i had not ever left him for 3 nites! but i survived... and luckily i took off work monday to rest and spend some time with my lil man! the weather has been so nice we decided to go to the park with caden and bitsy. the boys had a great time! i was quite tired after chasing trace around for 45 minutes but so far the exercise hasn't killed me :) we need to start going more because trace really loved the park. i even took baby lucas down his first slide! trace was in my lap and caden came down right behind us, it was so fun!!
just hiding under the picnic table at meme's!
well trace is officially a true A.W.A.N.A. (approved workmen are not ashamed) at church this year, he is in the youngest class called PUGGLES! how cute is that? i tried to take a pic of his little puggle t-shirt. but when he saw that i had the camera he sat right down on the floor and said "cheeeeeese!" how funny. maybe you can see the cute little guy on his shirt, if not, at least you can see my cute little guy! i love this boy!!!!

Thanks to all who have prayed for little Josiah. He continues to improve each day. Here is a journal entry from earlier today...
We had apple sauce, cheerios, and milk for breakfast. His left eye is open and he is sleeping peacefully while Janna rocks him.
Josiah is being transferred to the neurology floor. This is a HUGE praise; we will be able to be with him around the clock. His inner cranial pressure is still too high to clamp the drain, he is still running a slight fever, and they may take a culture from his spinal fluid to check for infection.
PRAISE GOD for his healing hand on Josiah. Yes, he still has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but God is so good! Please continue praying for this family when God lays them on your heart. The Caringbridge website is updated often so feel free to check it for more updates. To read the journal entries from Friday morning when the accident to now is so incredible. The best word I can use to describe the past few days in Josiah's life is MIRACULOUS!!! Also, please pray that God will allow little Josiah to speak. They haven't heard him talk yet and we are all praying they will hear his sweet little voice soon.

Friday morning Josiah (17 months) pulled the family TV on himself and suffered severe head trauma. He is the son of the Associate Pastor at Ridgecrest- Jason and Janna Carrier. Josiah has a twin brother and 2 older brothers. Please keep the entire family in your prayers. The Lord is doing amazing things through the life of Josiah Carrier and you can become involved in this "Miracle" - check out his caringbridge site for updates on his continued progress and pray! The doctors are amazed at his progress and we are able to see - Jehovah is his HEALER!

It is very dangerous to stand up in a rocking recliner...
NEVER EVER kiss your cousin!
Yes, you have to share the Easter eggs!
Take small bite so you do not choke.
You can't have your cake and eat it too!
No matter what your mom says, dirt won't hurt!
Some things never go out of style!! (and it's perfectly ok to stay in your PJ's all day!)
Always follow directions!
Only use 1 crayon at a time! And never eat them :)
But remember........No matter what, I'll always love you!
Don't know if I followed the tag correctly, but it was fun anyways! I tag LAINE, b/c I know with 6 kids she has plenty of advice... I also tag JENN, b/c she takes more pics than I do and I can't wait to see them... and MEG... b/c she is a kindergarten teacher and I know she has some good ones!!
