So much to say, so much to say!

I have so much to share with all of you. Last night for the first time C.G. went potty #2 on the potty. We were getting out of the car from eating mexican with our friends, the Stephens and C.G. said poo poo. So I asked her if she had to go poo poo and she shook her head yes, so I brought her to the potty and there she went. As you can see, we were all so excited for her. Here are my sweet one's with their Easter bunnies. H.T. loves to kiss his little sister. We spent the day at home because of H.T. having the flu.
H.T. and I had so much fun decorating our Easter eggs. Well, actually Todd and I finished them.

We left for Birmingham the Wednesday before Easter. We had a full weekend planned with events and were thrilled. We were going to be grilling out with some friends, hanging out with Shea and her sweet baby Savannah, going to the zoo, hanging out with grandparents, having C.G.'s pictures taken and most of all Easter. The Thursday before Easter Sunday, the 2nd night we were there, H.T. woke up around 2:30 with a stomach bug that lasted several hours. We then made the decision to go home and spend Easter by ourselves. We were sort of afraid that one of us may get it or pass it on to someone else. Anyway, we brought H.T. to the Dr. and it was the flu. Poor guy, he was miserable.
We did get to go to the zoo, that event was planned the day he got the flu. Anyway, we miss Birmingham, well let me rephrase that, we miss our friends.

This is a picture of me and H.T. at the zoo on the train. We had so much fun with him that day. Todd's mom was keeping C.G., so it was just the three of us. We all had a blast!

Why would Jesus die for me? This has been on my mind all day. I know the answer and the scriptures to back it up. I am no one special, yet God would let His son die, so that I may spend eternal life with Him. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice.
As a mom, I would never let one of my children die for someone else's sin, especially people I don't know or that don't know me. But that is what God did, He let His son die for those who persecuted Him and called Him names, for those of us who did not love Him, yet He loved us.
He is risen! Indeed!

Sick baby & quick update on Father in law

Today C.G. has had a throw up bug. I'm not sure where she got it, but it came on around 2:30 and it seems to have stopped now at 6:30, we'll see how the evening goes. It's so sad when your little one's are sick. She's never thrown up before, so it freaks her out a little when it's happening.

Also, we thank all of you who have been praying for my father in law. For those of you who are new to my blog, he has pancreatic cancer. The tumors have not shrunk, but we are still very hopeful. He is going through chemotherapy now, please continue to pray for his health and healing.

This past Saturday we had snow! H.T. had a blast in it, he played with his trucks, ran around and was covered with it. We would bring him in for a while to put his clothes in the dryer and make sure his hands weren't getting wet. C.G. loved it, but mommy couldn't stay out there too long. I'm not a fan of cold weather, but I must say, the snow was fun for a day. The weather is so crazy here, which I'm sure it is everywhere. Today, our high is in the 70's. It's great! I'm getting spring fever and ready to go shopping for some spring clothes. Sorry, I haven't had an update on hair tips in a while. I'll try to start that again.
