Prayer Request

I am asking for all of you that are so loyal to prayer and have prayed for Cohen to please take time today to pray for some friends of mine.

The McGregor Family need prayers. Janna's mother in law and my mother in law work together. Her twin boys are preemies also, so Janna and I have been communicating for several months now. This family is dealing with so much, from so many directions. My heart is so heavy for them.

My friend Adreinne, and her little Bennett also need prayer. This is another wonderful Christian family that has already endured so much. I am always in awe of the strength and faith they have!

Baby Olivia, is a close family member of one of my best friends in the world, Sara. She has been in the hospital for weeks, and has finally been diagnosed with a lung disease. She will be on oxygen for years, among other treatments. They have been real troopers considering all they have been hit with. Please pray for them and Olivia's healing.

I know this is overwhelming. Thank you all for taking time to read.

Finally 5K

As some of you remember, Justin, Calee and I signed up for the Couch to 5K program with a group of friends a while back. We have been training for 12 weeks, and we ran the 5K this past Saturday.

I can't believe I am going to post these pictures, as I look less than photogenic in them-----but, I am really proud of all of us and can't believe we did it! I literally went from couch to 5K, since less than 1 year ago I was on bedrest and then sat in a chair at the hospital for months!

The 5K was called Strides for SIDS. All the entry fees and such benefit SIDS research. Several parents that have lost babies to SIDS ran and walked the race. I am thankful we could help with such a needed cause.

Halloween 2010

This year, we had a "Renaissance Princess" (she was Athena until about 30 minutes before we left the house, then she dug out this dress=) , "Tow Mater", and a "lobster in his stock pot."

The kids had fun, we went to our church for "trunk or treat", then to a friends neighborhood for some old school door to door action. Calee and Ames LOVED it! They have never really done that, so it was fun. We ran by and saw several friends and their little ones in costume.

By far my favorite part of Halloween is the younger kids and seeing their costumes. We saw so many adorable little bees, monkeys, policemen, fireman, tractors, Elmo.....and many more I can't think of right now!

Here are a few snapshots I took of ours and friends. Please take note of the pic with Cohen and the little lion. He is a church buddy of ours that was also a preemie. He spent the entire holiday season last year in the NICU here in Murfreesboro. He is doing great now and I am so glad we finally took a picture of them together!
