CHERRIES

Have I ever mentioned that I love cherries?? I do! My sweet mommy just delivered some to my house this evening. We had a bbq to celebrate the 4th. Jody did a great job cooking out. The menu included chicken, poppers, cornbread salad, beans, and squash with onions. For dessert we had apple pie. (No, not homemade. I have lots of trouble making apple pie. It always turns out runny and it frustrates me. So, I buy the frozen kind and it always turns out yummy. Yummy, not runny- perfect. :) We had my parents over and Mikayla's favorite Aunt Christy. A very enjoyable evening for me, although Christy seems to think I'm a bit crazy/sensitive in this pregnancy. Who knows. Maybe I am.

My first appt is MONDAY!! I'm excited for the day to come. I do know that whatever happens and whatever we see that God will give us great grace. In that I am confident. I saw this verse the other day and it was special to me:

"The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve..."
~Psalm 29:9a

Isn't that great?? It doesn't just "happen." The Lord is in control of it all. I love it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, dear ladies for your encouraging comments on my previous post. We've decided to rock her/love her to sleep until she gets older. It's going quite smoothly (of course).

How about that hot dog eating contest?? CRAZY x a million. 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes. Unreal. Talk about indigestion. At least they're Nathan's (the best hot dog you can find).

Happy 4th!

Thanks for a great evening... I LOVE that Mikayla! And you!! Jody did do a good job with the grilling!

I also meant to thank you for sharing your blueberries with me Tuesday... I forgot to use them with my cereal though. Oh well, they may not have gone too well with PBC.

Let me know the next time I can come love Mikayla to sleep.. that was so fun! :)

And for the record, Christy does not think you're a bit crazy/sensitive in this pregnancy.. I just thought you were extra frazzled last night. I still love you anyway!! And I actually kinda like it when you're frazzled because then you call me and I get to come help with Mikayla!!!!! My favourite!!!

Maybe I can visit on the way to/or from Dr. Zondag tomorrow.... Yikes.. I'm scared. Deep breaths..
