Mr. M is starting to be so tender hearted. It just melts my heart to hear him pray. The other day I had a migraine all day and none of my medicine worked to get rid of it. I had felt like p*oop all day long. Well to top it off I hit my head some kind of hard that afternoon and was crying so hard that I thought I was going to pass out. The pain was just unbearable. When I finally calmed down I realized that my migraine was gone! OH yeaahhhh I have found the cure for migraines....just smack your head really hard on something and you will be temporarily cured! so back to Mason....that night in bed he is saying his prayers and asks me "mommy can I pray for your brain?" Well of course I told him that he could and now he prays for my brain every night! Ohhh I just love him.
On the way to school the other day he asked me if I could call Jesus for him. I told him that I would and asked him what did he want me to tell him. He said "oh no, I want you to call him for me, but I want to talk to him."
On to Ashlyn....she is talking like crazy and is such a cute little thing with all of her bossiness. She was in the bed with mommy and daddy the other night and kept calling us "Turrell". "Good morning Turrell, how doing, hey Turrell". So I figured out quickly that Turrell had to be a child in her class. She is also pointing to us and asking us every 5 minutes "ew name?"...that is short for "what is your name?" Our crazy dog Macee is such a wild crazy dog and jumps all over us for attention. I was getting Ashlyn off of the bus today and Macee came running up and freaked Ashlyn out. I scooped her up and carried her to the house as she cried "scarry". Macee is now "scarry".
Spenser just celebrated his 12th birthday and is doing really well in school. He made all A's except for one B. I honestly don't know how the child does it....I rarely see him doing homework and never see him study. He is just a natural brainiac I guess. He is busy trying to be a good brother to Ashlyn and busy trying to get Mason to BE a good brother. :)

Well I survived the trip to Oregon! Although I had a blast catching up on many years with my best friend, I missed the kids and dh so bad it hurt. Renee has been my very BEST friend in the world, since kindegarten. No matter how many miles are between us, we talk on the phone like we live just next door. We laugh, we cry in each others ear, give advice, and most importantly we pray for each other. I don't know what I would ever do without her. Thank you God for allowing us to remain best friends through thick and thin. Not everyone is blessed to know a TRUE friend.

Our friends brought along their sweet doggie Ben, a golden retriever. Poor Ashlyn was scared of the dog and tried very hard to stay out of its way. Anytime the dog came near her (it stayed in the house with us), she freaked out and started screaming. This dog was a sure way of keeping her out of trouble while we were at their house. She didn't wander around the house too much and destroy things because she was too busy staying backed up on the couch away from the dog!
Ashlyn didn't like the ocean this year. This did not go over too well with the boys. We spent most of our time at the pool (which was fine with me) because she was freaked out by the ocean water. Poor Spenser was upset with her because of this and took it out on me, because he didn't get to spend as much time playing in the ocean as he wanted to. Hopefully next year will be better!

"You put me here for a reason
You have a mission for me
You knew my name and you called it
long before I learned to breathe"
Yes life can be crazy, but we must make the best of it because we all know we are living on borrowed time. This is what I tell myself when days start running together, running from here to there in my sometimes crazy life with 3 kids and a husband. I have to tell myself EVERY day, "slow down, breathe.....you only have one turn on this merry-go-round called life".
So this is my life, with 2 handsome boys and a beautiful daughter who is chromosomally enhanced (Down syndrome) and loving life! I will share our journey within this blog.
