You should have seen me running around trying to keep Audrey from getting her hands in it, getting any more on the floor(she already smeared it with her booty) keeping James out of it and trying to clean it up all at the same time(Jon hadn't made it home yet). It was a site I'm sure and the bewildered look on my children's faces from me screaming "DON'T TOUCH IT" every time they moved was priceless! Of course right after I got it cleaned up Jon got home so he bathed them while I mopped the floor. At which time I discovered that Audrey had also tinkled on the floor in 3 different places! The little stinker! Mind you she did all this in less than 20 seconds and with out a single peep!

This day marks a special day in our lives! One year ago today we brought James and Audrey home from the hospital! As I've thought about that day today I just have to smile and say "thank you Lord for helping us survive!" We were so happy to have them home, we weren't frightened by their size or their constant need of our attention for their survival. Everyone was so surprised to hear that I stayed home with them all day by myself for the first 2 days but I wanted it that way. We had already missed so much time together. That first week I was too delirious with happiness to realize just how much work they were going to be. Oh innocence is bliss!

I just wanted to share with everyone another way that the Lord has blessed our lives together. A good lesson in learning that the Lord always provides and always answers prayer. He may not provide what you want because "His ways are not our ways" and sometimes His answer may be "no" but He always provides. You know, we were so discouraged in the Summer because we had that big set back. But it wasn't a set back. It was simply the Lord telling us to wait on Him.
I mentioned before as Mizell's we saw potential in the house. What I really meant was that as Mizell's we dig a diy challenge. And we've bitten off a big chunk with this one! The house is much bigger than the last one we remodeled and there are two MAJOR time factors we face now: Jon's job and two children! Over the next few months most of my time(when I can find babysitters) and Jon's spare time will be focused on the house. So...........I won't be blogging even close to what I have been doing. But I promise to throw y'all a bone at least once a week!

Yes, she is reading and he is listening.

I snagged a clip of James and Audrey dancing this morning. Notice that Audrey has one jazz hand out and is sways back and forth gently, like a little girl. While James is forcefully swinging is arms back and forth and jumping up and down, just like a little boy!

All the kiddos at the party. They were supposed to all be wearing mouse ears. Hmmm........
And I just thought this picture was toooooo cute. You can't see his face 'cause who ever took this (not me) cut his head off but Uncle Will is laying on a table and so are Hannah and Harrison. I wonder who climbed up first?! They must of been taking a break from all that hard work they'd been doing!
p.s. As a side note I thought you might get a kick out of knowing that right now Audrey is supposed to be napping. Instead, for the last 20 minutes she has been crying. However, every few minutes she'll stop her pitiful little wail and say "uh-oh". Really now, does she have to be so darn cute?!

The day before their party Betsy, Buddy, Susan, Ronnie, Will, Harrison and Ma Maw came in. We had a house full. I'm so thankful that our land lord lets us use the empty house next door when we have lots of company. Other wise all the men would of had to pitch tents in the back yard! My mother and grandfather came in the day of the party and jumped right in to the craziness. Oh we had so much fun the day of the party! It was crazy and hectic and hardly no time to get to visit with anyone but it was nice just knowing everyone was here. At the party everyone kept telling me how nice things were and asking how in the world I got it all done with so much going on. My answer every time was "I had tons of people helping me". Seriously things would not have gone so smoothly nor would Jon and I have been in such a good mood and so relaxed. Having so much help really made the whole experience very enjoyable which is something I will always appreciate! Thanks you guys!
More tales and pictures from the party next time!
