Piano Arrival

On Thursday we received the piano that Joe & Terri gave us for our girls to use. We did not tell them that it was coming so please enjoy the pictures below!
I think Elizabeth's face says it all! OH MY ! I can't believe this is here! Can I touch it?! Let me at those ivory keys.

All Hannah could so is cheese real big! Words left her for a moment.

As you see here Rachel didn't even get her coat off. She is showing Julia where to sit! She still calls her Chewy Lewi!

I think Julia is ready for her first concert! She will sit at the piano and just play & play! She loves to hear the music. It is no wonder since both sides of her family love music! All of the girls are enjoying playing the piano. Mom & Dad do not mind since they do not bang they play each key with one finger!

Chilly Days!

I think winter is upon us a little early this year! I took pictures this morning before we went to school! I have figured out that I need a heavy duty coat! My thin coats are not very warm! I am thinking that this wind and stuff has to go. I do not like snow unless I am inside under a warm blanket with hot cocoa watching it fall. I am sure that most women would agree with me on that note. Thanksgiving is coming upon us in a week & I cannot wait! It should be a fun day of eating and visiting with family.

Life is Moving Quickly!

I need to update on a lot of things! First off, my doctor put me on half days. Our baby is growing like it should, but I am continuing to have problems with the separation. I am also to take it easy! Any mother knows how funny that line is! Take it easy with 4 kids, a husband that has been working 60 hours a week! I do feel better than I did before & am praying that the complications start to slow down now!

Hannah & Elizabeth are being great with helping! We are getting ready to change their room around. We are going to separate the bunk beds. Keep one in the room they are in now & put the other one in Julia's room. Hannah & Elizabeth want to share a room with just them. We are going to do this to see if it will help them keep it up better! I am going to make new curtains & a new comforter for their bed. Hannah wants horses & Elizabeth wants dogs. I am going to make a reversible blanket. They are very excited about it. Julia & Rachel's room will be butterflys. I think Rachel is excited about the change too. Robbie is also going to make a new toy box that is just a little bigger than what they have now. I am going to start buying material a little at a time so that I can spend a little each week. I am going to take pictures of the girls tomorow all dressed up to get new pictures up!

Doctor Visit for Mom!

I am so thankful how God blesses our lives each day. I have had a few minor problems in this pregnancy & God has seen fit to help in these areas.

Last weekend I started spotting & was seen in the ER. They told me I was having a "threatened miscarriage." Monday after teaching all morning the spotting started again so I called my doctor. They had me come in on Tuesday for an Ultrasound. When having the ultrasound they found that I have a small blood clot between the sack & the wall of my uterus. The other concern was that there was only a sack, which either made me 5wks or I had a false pregnancy. They put me on Prometrium which is a hormone to help support the baby if there was one.

I went back to the doctor today for another ultrasound & visit! The first thing the technician saw was the baby & the heart was beating strong! When she showed me the screen I saw my precious baby moving & it's heart beating! Last week there was only an empty sack & in a measly week the baby was there! The heartbeat is very strong & they are confident that I will carry the baby. My blood clot has started to shrink, and I am so thankful to God! I am 6wks and 2days pregnant! My due date is June 28, 2009!

I am putting a couple of pictures of the ultrasound on. They are not very clear, but it will give you an idea. If you look at the black area that is the sack & at the top you will see a rounded gray area into the sack. THAT is our BABY! What a difference a week makes! I wish I had a picture from last week so you could see for yourself what I saw.

God is so good.
God is so good.
God is so good to me.
He answers prayer.
He answers prayer.
He answers prayer, He's so good to me.
I love Him so.
I love Him so.
I love Him so, He's so good to me.


God is so good! Hannah followed the Lord in Believer's Baptism on Sunday night November 2, 2008. Only her head & shoulders were out of the water! Robbie tried to get pictures, but they turned out bad so I have after shots!
Grandma & Grandpa Huttelmayer joined us in our celebration.
Grandmama & Poppy Gary also joined us in this special occasion. I am so thankful for the Godly heritage that we have to pass down to our kids! God blessed our children with two great-grandmothers that influenced them before going home to be with the Lord! I know as my children come to salvation it is a result of their Great Grandmother's prayers for them!
