A Long Time Coming...

My, my, my I have been a bad mama. It has been so long since I have updated this blog. We are all doing great. Bekah is now a toddler...yes my sweet little baby has grown into a two year old. Where in the world has the world has the time gone to??? Riley and Reahgan are doing great. They are learning so much in school. Both of them are straight A and B students. Makes us proud. We took the kids to Rock City last night and they had a blast! It was really cold, but we made the most of it and made some great memories. Hopefully I will be able to keep up a little better. Merry Christmas to everyone!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Wow! It has been a very busy last week! Boo celebrated her first birthday on Saturday Dec, 6. She had a blast. Ducks everywhere!
Sunday, Brian and I celebrated our 12Th wedding anniversary. That in itself is a WOW!
Then today I had surgery to remove the cancer in my breast. It was a fairly easy procedure, easier than I thought it was going to be. Doctor says he removed all of the cancer. WOOHOO! I have 4 more treatments, mainly as precaution. Thank you all for your prayers!

Reahgan and her best friend Kenzie.

Thought I needed to update with new information. I went to the doctor yesterday, I have surgery on Dec. 8Th. He plans on removing the lump, doing a lumpectomy. Great News! I want to thank everyone for your prayers.
I wanted to post a few pics of the kids also. Hope you enjoy them.

Brian is 38!

Today is my hubby's 38Th birthday. I think that he is in denial. We had a really good day. We went to eat with mom,dad, mam, poppy and Bronson. After we ate we went over to mam's for the kids to pick up pecans from her tree. Later we came home and the kids had Nerf gun fight. Brian got in open the fun too. Hope everyone has a great week. See you soon.

Two more weeks

Two more weeks, that's all that I have left of treatments. Things are looking really good. The cancer is shrinking a lot. I go next Wednesday to have another mammogram to check the size again. Please keep fingers crossed that it is even smaller this time. Thank all of you for your prayers.

Life is just not fair

I found out this morning that a little girl that goes to school with Reahgan, lost her mother last night to breast cancer. I know of Amber, had met her a couple of times. She has a 7 year old daughter named Ansleigh, and a 2 year old named Annasten. Amber had been in remission for a little while then she found out the cancer had returned full force in Feb. 2007. She had been hospital bound pretty much the whole time.
There are so many things that are going on in my mind right now. I want to know why. I want to understand why these little girls will not have a mom. I want to know why someone who tries to do the right things in life can get dealt such a crappy hand.
Then there are my selfish thoughts. I see this can happen. I wonder why me? Why did I have to be the one to be diagnosed with Breast Cancer? I don't want to leave my babies. I don't want to leave Brian. I am terrified that may happen. I know that I am being selfish, but I think I have earned that right. I know that the Dr's are doing everything that they can, ultimately it is completely up to GOD. I have faith that HE is in complete control, but sometimes, especially at times like this my faith begins to waver just a tad. Sometimes I feel like each day I have to bargain for more time. I watch Bekah crawl around the floor and I wonder if I will get to see her a year from now running in the yard. Reahgan is on the dance team at school and when I watch her practice I think, will I get to see this next year? And Riley, I want to see him learn to drive. I want to watch them grow up.

Today is such a big day. Ten years ago at 5:30am I gave birth to one of the most precious gifts I will ever receive. Riley is 10. That is so had to believe. He has grown to be a handsome young man. I can only hope that the next 10 years are as great as the first were.
Riley was so excited today. Tonight he wants to go to his all time favorite restaurant, ICHIBAN. His party will be Sunday @ Winner's Circle. I will post more about his birthday tonight.
