Hi all :)
Tonight we took Noah to Chuck E. Cheeses for the first time and met some old friends there. A great time was had by all :) I must say that Noah choosing tonight to decide he could be FAR away from mom at times was quite disconcerting. CHASING a 2 year old through a VERY crowded Chuck E. Cheese was not so fun. A couple of times he just TOOK OFF! This is so new! He LOVED to big singin puppets :) but not the live chuck e cheese. He watched him from afar. Here are some pics for yall of the night:
This shot is hilarious :) Celeste looks like she is about to die and Noah is grinnin his head off :) I had a wonderful shot of Noah runnin and grinnin but it messed up on my computer and is GONE :( so sad.
here we are investigating food :) Noah was very into the salad bar :) boiled eggs, cheese, bacon bits, little chunks of ham, crackers. He was so there! LOL
playin ball with Jei Jei
hangin with the big boys! (you cant see it but he is standin on TIP TOES to see :) heehee

playin with the big boys!
sittin like a big boy in the booth! :) too cute :) He is sitting on her big bag! :) makes him look so big :)
Noah is doing just wonderfully! He has Speech this morning and did amazing. He said More very clearly while signin it :) He also said ball really well :) He is still a little mimic. He tries to make the sounds we make. so cute
He was climbing all over the place at Chuck E. Cheese. He crawled up steps in the slide thing and that was too cute :) I am amazed when I look at him at what all he can do now and how far he has come :) It is so amazing to watch our kids grown and learn and develop :) So hard to believe I have a 2 year old. Especially since he is so much tinier than all the other two year olds aroudn here! They are huge! Tonight as I was walking across the restraunt I saw a woman carrying a baby with a large elmo bib and I said that is so cute, my son LOVES elmo, he would love that bib. As I walked on to place our order I had this odd feeling and it was like so cool that I could say MY SON this or MY SON that! I HAVE A SON! lol those of you who have been on this journey are like umm duh Tami you have had a son home for 8 months, where have you been? lol but for some reason saying that tonight just brought this overwhelming feeling over me and I was like so incredibly thanful that YES I have a son and YES HE IS HOME! and I have another son waiting! and you know what , he is coming home too! Another miracle is in the works! :) I doubt this is making alot of sense but humor me. lol
My big baby girl Celeste who turns 21 the end of this month has had some cool things this week. She got her drivers lisence! YAY for her :) She really wanted it before her bday and she got it :) She has NO interest in driving as a teen and actually feared it a good while but now she is ready. Now if a car will fall in her lap she will have it made :) heehee She also got her first ever paycheck today :) She got a little part time job for while she is in school to have some money :) She was so excited :) Here is her picture :)
Her hair looks much darker in this picture than it is now that she is tryin to get it to go back to her lighter natural color. It amazes me that my baby girl will be 21 soon! WOW, where does the time go??
I am anxiously awaiting new photo's and updates of Jeremiah. I am told they should be here this week or next week. Praying they come soon and for updates as well as photos. I can't wait to see that little sweet angel! :) We have had so many kind words and folks offering help in different ways it is so wonderful to our hearts :) We will be having a bake sale/candy sale this coming Saturday in front of a local business so we are VERY excited about that. We stepped out in faith and purchased the candy and stuff to bake for the bake sale and are praying to make alot more than what we spent. We are also getting things reorganized and rearranged and stuff here at the house. My mother in law determined with the advise of her doctor to move back to the place she had been for rehab after her surgeries. The doc felt she would do better to do so permanetly with her health the way it is and she decided to do so. It has been odd having only one mother living with us now but we trust that God is in control and she seems VERY happy! She is beating everyone at bingo! :) heehee We have our homestudy update visit coming up next week so we are trying to finish all our spring cleaning, which for me always turns into spring drag everything out and go through it cleaning LOL :) we are gathering things for a big rummage sale as well so we are busy busy. We have several other fundraisers being planned and waiting on call backs to get them finalized. One fun one is called Jumping for Jeremiah! :) I think it will be a blast :) I will share more about it when the place here in town we are having it gets back with me with all the details. Prayerfully tomorow. I have a home and garden fundraising party scheduled in June but will be doing fundraising sheet sales to go with that party beginning soon. We will receive 50 percent of the profit of the total we sell. That is a very generous offer on the company's part and we are quite thankful. I am searchin my house for anything I can sell :) Working on parents night out fundraiser locations and ideas and trying to figure out how to do plate sales with a Noah in tow! :) heehee GOD IS ABLE, right? I am working on a spread the word Giveway for yall to spread the word about Jeremiah, about our online fundraisers and such but I am trying to get a grab this button made to link to the fundraising blog and having trouble with that but stay tuned for that when I get it worked out.
Since I did not have new update pics to share of Jeremiah I thought I would post one of my favorite ones so far again :) So you remember who you are praying for, Here's Jeremiah
My F.R.O.G.I.E BOY! :)
Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy :) Mama loves you so much honey and she and daddy and everyone are working so hard to get you home as quick as we can. We are praying for miraculous turnouts at fundraisers, and for lots of donations to our giveaways and just for anything that will make things move faster so you can get home and we can be a family together :) I can't wait to see you and feel you, and touch you and just watch you sleep in person and stroke your hair. HANG on buddy, we are coming as soon as we can. until then catch my kisses in the wind sweet angel boy.
