Birthdays, Prayer Request and Praise!

Happy 7th Birthday Annie
I love you so much!

Well, my Annie Beth is 7 today and I was looking for some pictures from her past to describe her personality a bit to you. These last two pictures were taken at a stay in Colorado about four years ago when our cabin only had a shower(which Annie refused to go in). We laugh at these pictures because it represents the two distinct personalities that Annie possesses. She is the happiest, most joyful, fun-loving, helpful child you could ever meet, and then she is ...um...let's just say-Watch out! I can't believe that my baby is seven. I thought somehow she would stay little forever. She hasn't. We went to Cracker Barrell for her birthday breakfast this morning along with every other human being in a 30 mile radius. She had a great time and can't wait to celebrate later next week with her friends. She is having a spa party, and I'm sure I will be posting pictures then.

Also, my friend Tiffany just celebrated her birthday yesterday. Go by if you get a chance and tell her Happy Birthday.
Prayer Request: My 10 year old son Seth has been having a lot of digestive issues on and off this week. We thought he had a stomach bug last weekend when he threw up a couple of times, but now we are starting to get a little concerned. About 10-20 minutes after he eats his stomach starts to cramp. Last night he threw up about 45 minutes after he ate, and then felt fine. He did the same thing this morning. I am trying to keep calm and look for other symptoms before I'm off to the E.R. When he was 7 and 1/2 months old, we almost lost him due to adhensions that had formed from his first two abdominal surgeries. Since that time until now, we haven't had any adhesions. I am trying not to panic, but I am going to take him in if it continues. He has been playing all day just fine, but I am not giving him much to eat. I juiced some carrot and apple and then he had some applesauce. He has kept that down. He wanted a little pasta, so I made him about 1 cup and so far so good. Please pray for wisdom on my part to know when to take this seriously. He is so thin as it is, I can't imagine him undergoing surgery again. Regardless I will get him into the pediatrician on Monday so we can get him checked out. Thank you in advance for praying!
Lastly on a positive note, I received a call from my sister who shared some good news with me. On Wednesday night we were talking about my nephew Matt and the fact he hasn't had any work since Hannah Montana other than a few student films and an independent film in which there is no pay. His agency was not happy with the fact that he wasn't booking, yet auditioning quite a bit. Well, within 24 hours of talking to her, Matt booked two small jobs. He will have a scene at the end of the OC season finale and a scene on The Office. He is filming both within the next week. Very exciting for him! This will finally get him his SAG card, which may lead to further roles. Yay Matt!

Happy Birthday to her. I love the photos of her in the sink. Cute, cute.

I'll pray for your 10 year old. In view of his past problem, you do have to be alert so I'll pray that you know when it's time to get help, if that becomes necessary.

Thanks for the tip on Tiffany. I didn't know.

And good news for your nephew. He must be so excited. My gosh, The Office is a huge hit! Good job. Not surprised - he's a great looking kid.

What a nice, newsy post. Happy weekend to you. :-)

Your daugther is so pretty. I can see you in her smile. Happy birthday to her!

I will pray for your son & for wisdom for you. Calls like these are the hard part of being a mom.

Good for your nephew!

Whoa... you've been busy. From birthday's (Happy Birthday little one) to tummy pains (praying for quick recovery and nothing major) to great news of new roles.

Keep us posted on the tummy pain! I can so relate to the anxiety that brings!!! Hang in there!

Happy Birthday to your girl! They grow so darn fast! I'm sure she is going to love that spa party!

Praying for you and your son. Poor duffer. Glad to hear he is keeping something down.

I'll be looking for Matt in The Office. We don't miss it--hysterical I tell you! And I'll be praying for Seth. Reese has had a few incidents of throwing up over the past few days and then seeming fine afterward. So far, I've just chalked it up to all of the major changes in a short period of time, but if it keeps up, we'll be at the dr too.

Happy Birthday Annie!!! She is as cute as can be.
I'll be praying for Seth and for wisdom. I think you'll feel lots better after you take him in for a checkup. Let's just pray it's one of those viruses that always seem to be going around.
Good for Matt. Sounds like things are getting exciting.
Have a blessed sunday. I'm praying for you.

Happy birthday to your daughter. She is so cute. I will keep you son and your family in my prayers. I really believe in the power of prayer. My faith has grown so much and all because of a back injury. It is just amazing how God works.
I like the show Hannah Montana. Doug makes fun of me for watching it. I am glad to here is is getting more roles.

Susie, your daughter is so pretty and looks so much like you! Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful day filled with oodles of fun! Happy Birthday Annie!

Will keep Seth and you all in my prayers. I am glad you have decided to take him in Monday, given his past medical history!

Congratulations to Matt! Awesome to land two huge roles! Better yet, now that he has obtained his SAG card, all kinds of doors will open! Woohoo! :)
