Our Uncle Stevie

This Monday was one of my very favorite uncle's funeral. For those of you that know me well know about Uncle Stevie and Aunt Sandy. They have been a very important part of our lives since we were babies. I just can't believe he is gone. We all miss him like crazy but have so many wonderful memories that we will cherish forever. Every time I get sad I think about how he must be holding Mamie right now in Heaven. He was so sad when we lost her and I just know he is up there making her laugh with all of his funniness.
For those of you that don't know, Taylor and I had a destination wedding planned in Seaside, FL. We all headed down to get ready. I wanted a simple wedding with close friends and family. That was the plan. The Monday before our wedding which was on that Thursday we were all evacuated because hurricane Ivan was headed to shore. We all hopped in our cars and headed back to Arkansas. Most of the guys were still home getting ready to head out along with Uncle Stevie and Aunt Sandy. I was sad but I mean what can you do. You can't really control mother nature can you. :) All I knew was we were still going to get married on Thursday September 16 no matter what! Aunt Sandy and Uncle Stevie called and offered their beautiful home and land for us to have our special ceremony. The wedding was absolutely perfect and how neat to say I got married at their house. They were so amazing. Their house and land is always so beautiful but they some how managed in 2 days to make it even more beautiful. I had just what I wanted. Instead of getting married by the ocean we got married by their pond. PERFECT!
Uncle Stevie will be missed by so many. Everyone that met his smiling face loved him. He was a great man and a great uncle.

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.
