Getting so big...

Today Oscar had his 4 year old check up and he was such a good boy considering he is not to fond of the place. He got 2 shots and was ready to leave right after they were given to him. He had a clean bill of health and has lost 3.5 lbs. Gramma came over again before we left so she could watch Lilly and give her a special bone while we were away. Here are a couple of pics of Osc the first one with him waiting patiently. The last 2 were him waiting patiently by the door he was ready to go, to bad these were taken way before the shots. Both my babies are healthy and happy they don't have to go back until next year!

Can we please go?

4 months and 4 days to make our goal!!

Click on the link below to see how you can make a difference!


4 months and 4 days away....

For all my CF friends....

One of my CF friends sent this to me I thought I would post it....

Never give up!!! 


~ 2 Corinthians 5:16-18~ 

" That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are quite small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us immeasurably great glory that will last forever. So we don't look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever and ever."
