Mamie's Garden

Happy Monday to you all. Wow is it a beautiful morning here in Arkansas. I am enjoying my hot cup of coffee on the deck this morning as I write this post. The birds are chirping so loud and I think today is going to be a good day. Spring is such an amazing time. We go through so many months where everything is brown and dead and then it seems like right in front of your eyes you can see the trees turning green and the plant budding out. Mamie's garden is bursting with blooms. The hot pink azaleas were the first to show their colors. Mom and Brit planted 200 pink tulip bulbs last fall while I was working a wedding. It has been such a surprise watching them pop up all around the walkway and by Mamie's bench. Everyday Taylor and I walk out to see what else is about to bloom. It is exciting to us to see new life in the garden. There are bee's buzzing around gathering nectar and we have already seen 2 butterflies fluttering around. The garden has been our little baby from planting , watering and now taking care of them. It brings us hope that good things are in the future for us. We feel extremely close to our sweet Mamie while working, sitting or whatever we might be doing in the garden. It is her garden :) I took some pictures about a week or so ago and really need to take more because so much has changed already. The light pink azaleas have buds all over them. I think they might bloom by the end of the week. My grandparents would be so proud. Mom (my grandmother) always had the most beautiful flowers. I think that is where I get my love for gardening. Thanks Mom :) I hope you all can soak in this beautiful morning and be thankful for all that God has given us. - Sarah
This wind chime was given to us from some of Taylor's parents friends in Dumas. The sound it makes grabs every one's attention when they come by the house. The sound is so peaceful.
This is a humming bird feeder Alyson gave us for the garden. Just waiting for my little friends to get here. :)

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
