So last night was a scream. Literally. David had asked the boys to go to the bedroom to get ready for bed, I dunno, a half dozen times. They kept getting distracted and they talk so blame loud, I don’t know if they even heard him. Well they ignored him, until he raised his voice.

All of a sudden a parade of children were marching back to the bedroom, swiftly I might add. In the parade was Lydia crawling as fast as she could keeping up with brothers. You could tell SHE didn’t want to get in trouble either. It was adorable.

My younger son, is very thoughtful. He always brings brother his sippy cup when he goes and gets his. Now, he always finds a doll for Lydia to play with. The two of them sit side by side in the van. I often find them holding hands. It is so precious to see that she has made into the kid club.

We got out a bit this afternoon to visit our sweet cousin Sarah. Sarah is only three months old and will have open heart surgery on St. Patty’s Day (Tuesday, March 17). She looked great. She is beautiful with lots of personality. You would never know she had any problems. She was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, which is a congenital heart defect, when she was first born by our pediatrician. I can’t imagine what he was thinking when he found this heart defect on another member of our family.

Anyway, Sarah will be admitted to UAB on Monday and have surgery on Tuesday. She is expected to be in the ICU for a day or two minimum and a total of five days inpatient minimum. This surgery will include repairing a hole in her heart. It is expected to be the only surgery that she will need, with no heart problems in the future. Please cry out to God on Sarah’s behalf. Her parents, Kim and Will, are doing very well, but need prayer as well.
