So on Monday we got our hot pink cast on. We have 2 more weeks to go before our next appointment. If you know me and OG, you know we are super bummed about not being able to go to the pool and lake. We are just thankful it did not require surgary or manipulation back into place. She has been a little trooper! She has really not complained. She does ask often when she is going to get the cast off.

Happy Father's Day to a wonderful Daddy. We had a terrific day. We started off by going to church and headed to Red Lobster (Brent loves seafood) for a great lunch. Up to this point we had not given Brent his Father's Day present. Well, OG said our prayer at lunch and she thanked God for Daddy's new bike and that she hoped Mommy would get one sometime. So there you have it, Brent got a new bike. Brent and I could not help but laugh. She said it so innocently. She was thankful Daddy was getting a bike. So when we got home she gave her Daddy his new bike. Now they can ride bikes together.
After our tradition of taking a Sunday afternoon nap, we headed to the movies. We went to see the movie "Up." It was really good and OG loved being at the movies. After popcorn and coke at the movies, we ended the night with a snow cone!! I would say it was a great Father's Day. We love you Brent. You are the best Daddy ever!!!

I am so glad that we had already found out that we were expecting before Nana and Granddad passed away. Nana was so excited. She called everyone she knew. She was worried that we were not going to have any more. Granddad was very happy for us as well.
We have had a really tough last 2 weeks. It started with the passing of Brent's grandfather. He was 95 years old. He passed away on Sunday, May 24th. We knew his time was close. They had put him in Hospice. We are very glad we got to spend some good quality time with him on the Friday night before he died. He was in his right mind and he was feeling pretty good. Granddad was one of the most Godly men I knew. If he talked to you, then he made sure you were a Christian. We can all find peace in his passing with the assurance that he is in Heaven with his Lord and Savior. We will miss Grandad, but will see him in heaven one day.
So that all happened on Sunday. On Tuesday, May 26th my Nana passed away. We just lost my Pop in March and now my Nana. Nana has always had some health problems, but this was very sudden. I am very grateful that I made it to Little Rock before she closed her eyes and gave up. I am pretty sure that she knew I was there. When I started talking to her she raised her eyebrows. I hold on to that she was waiting for me to get there, because it wasn't 20 minutes after I arrived that she let go. I hold on to that she is also in heaven with Jesus and with Pop. I will truly miss her. We talked every other day on the phone. She adored Olivia Grace and Jordan.
I don't know why this all happened in the same week. But, I know that I would not have made it through it if I didn't have Jesus in my life. My prayer is that if you are reading this blog, that you have a personal relationship with Jesus. He is the ONLY way to make it through difficult times. And HE is the ONLY way to heaven. I am very thankful that my Nana and Pop and Grandad had a personal relationship with Jesus. They are in heaven today and they have no more suffering and no more pain!!!!!
