Sunday- Lake Day

I woke up this past Saturday morning in a total slump. One of my very good friends was having her baby shower and I had really planned on going. I laid in bed for a really long time not wanting to get out or do anything. Once I did I wandered around the house not really knowing what to do with myself. I couldn't go to the shower. I just couldn't. I was totally down in the dumps and no one would want poor pitiful Sarah around. After everything I have been through and all the things I have done since I just can't figure out why showers are so hard. I remember my shower so well. It was wonderful and I was so happy. Maybe that's why.... that was the last time I was with all of my friends and was so happy about Mamie coming. I ran a hot bath and sunk down into the hot water for ah..........about 2 hours. I felt like all the energy in my body had run out. Taylor came in to tell me that his sister and her husband would be there any minute so we could go down to the game. :( Getting ready and socializing was not what I wanted to do. I needed to snap out of it. Being around people would be good for me. We headed down to the game and I ended up having a blast. Taylor and I always enjoy being around Ashley and Drew. There is always a lot of laughing between the 4 of us.
Sunday morning Taylor and I decided to head over to the lake. The weather was amazing. We loaded Gus up in the jeep and headed out. I got to visit with my Grandmother a bit and then Taylor and I drove the boat over to Ashley and Drew's house. Ken and Cissy were there visiting so we got to see them. Ken wasn't feeling very good. He has been having chemo weekly for his lung cancer. After they headed out for Dumas we went out for a swim with the twins. It was a lovely day.
The sky was so pink when Taylor and I were heading back to the house in the boat. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Mamie, I believe, was saying hello to her mommy and daddy.

Taylor let me drive the boat for a few minutes :) I think I would rather sit back and chill instead of drive.

Drew, Ashley, Taylor and I took the twins and Gus out to swim. Gus really likes to be around those two.

Is this not the funniest picture.

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…

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 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.
