I know it's been a long time sorry. I'm doing well I work with the family at Star Operators. Steven works for a company called Convergy's, but fell at work in January and is on works comp. There saying he needs surgery. Elisha will be attending Boulevard Christian School next year. Noah has hit a milestone; he will start kindergarten this year. He says he's very sad to lose his friends; but is excited to start his new school which is Milam. His Mommy went ther as a child. Joshua (Bump) is doing great and is learning new words every week. Again I'm so sorry it's been so long. I pray everyone is well ans God Bless.
Well... It has been a while since our last post. We have celebrated Mother's Day and Mom's birthday in the last week. Both were wonderful. Joshua is six and a half months old and is starting to slim down. He has really developed a sweet personality and it is great to see him with Noah and all the other kids that crowd around him at school and church. Noah has one more week before the end of this school year. He will have one more year at Lynn Flower's Preschool and then KINDERGARDEN!!!!!!! I can't believe it. Elisha should be heading down some time in June. Steven (aka Griff) is still working two full-time jobs but is now asking that I get a day job so he can drop one. So please be praying that the right doors will open. My brother Jeff and his wife, Donna, are expecting little Emily Addison any day now. We are all excited to meet her. We will be celebrating Noah's 4th birthday and Elisha's 11th birthday together this year. So I will send out invited once we have firmed up a date.
Again, please be praying for a job for me. Not only a job but a good job. We love y'all and are looking forward to seeing some of y'all at the barbeque for John Keller in June. God bless and keep in touch.
We went to the First Pres. Annual Easter Egg Hunt. It was so fun to watch the boys, Noah and Garrison, load up with eggs. There were only three kids their age, so they had free reign of one whole side. What's is the icing on the cake after an easter egg hunt in the heat? Baskin Robbins. We wrapped up the day there with the family. Yummy!!!
Joshua is growing so fast. He is over 20 lbs and 26 in. He has started rolling from his tummy on to his back. He still has only two teeth but he is definitely using them. He loves the veggies that he has been started on and I am sure will really love the fruits that I will start this week. I can't believe that he will be six months old in a couple of weeks! We are praying that his eye will clear up soon and that he won't have to have surgery to open his tear duct when he turns 1! So please join us in that.
Noah is doing great. He is about to wrap up his second year at Lynn Flowers Preschool. We are currently working on reading 10 books a week. This is part of a reading program that will give him a free pizza if he reads 60 books. I can't believe he is going to be 4 in a couple months. We are praying that Noah will start to obey and grow out of this rebellious stage.
Elisha should be here at the beginning of June and we are definitely looking forward to seeing him. We are definitely in prayer for him!!! He will be turning 11 this summer!
Wow! My boys are growing up so quickly. I am so richly blessed. I pray that we continue to seek the Lord and grow in His likeness. God bless!
We spent Sunday evening over at the Keller's house in order to dedicate our wonderful boys, Joshua Griffith and Garrison Byrom, to the Lord. They are gifts from God and we are pledging to grow them in and teach them the word of God. Thank you Lord for your great gifts.
Joshua is growing up so fast!!! He now has two teeth, AT FOUR MONTHS OLD! We had to give him his first haircut this past Sunday. He did really well and goes completely limp when the trimmers are on his head. He is such a sweet boy. His personality has really developed and he has such a sweet one. He really doesn't cry unless there is a reason. Just another blessing.
This past Sunday we went to Trinity Baptist to listen to John Keller give his testimony. So awesome. He is an amazing miracle! Praise God!
Thank you Lord for your amazing works and fulfilling your promises.
Hey y'all! Today was a good day. We took Noah to school and stayed to watch him participate in the Trike-a-thon for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. He completed 25 laps! Thank goodness we didn't pledge $5 a lap! All the kids were so cute and did such a great job. Thank you to those of you that sponsored Noah. We really appreciate it. We spent the rest of the day hanging out with "Daddy" and went a second day without afternoon naps! BUT... He is worth it. We are so blessed. God bless y'all.
Wow!!! What a year this has started out to be. Joshua is growing SO FAST. I just found that he has cut his first tooth. We are all battleing serious allergies and are hoping to start feeling better very soon. Griff just had his 36th birthday. My brother, Jeff, and his wife are expecting a little girl in May. We are very excited about it. It has been a while since any of us have been around a baby girl! John Keller came home and is doing wonderful. He has been just about everywhere. He is an amazing miracle! Noah is back at school and is quickly approaching his 4th birthday! I can't believe it. A lot is going on. We hope everyone is doing well and we pray that God is richly blessing you.
