**Pray for Baby Stellan**

If you have never visited MckMama's Blog, you should.. I enjoy checking the updates on it regularly.. I was so sad to hear about baby Stellan being so sick and in the PICU.. Please check out the blog and the updates on baby Stellan's heart condition and add him to your prayer list..
He is such a precious baby boy and I can't imagine what they are going through at this time. He needs your prayers! Stop now and lift him up to the Lord! --Jenny

Little Miss Independent

Here are two pics of Laney when we went fishing.. I had one of them attached to the previous post but somehow deleted it and then couldn't figure out how to get it back on...
Anyway... Of course she thought she could fish by herself and actually did a fairly good job at throwing out her bait/cork by herself..

Notice the pink/purple pole! Everything has to be pink/purple these days.. She's such a girly girl! So prissy, but wants to hang with the boys too and try to be tough!

More Fishing Pictures

Ok.. I know you are wondering what the picture to the left is... It was the best I could get. This is a picture of my poor cricket, yes still alive. When I threw it out to fish, I sort of thought it looked a little funny floating in the water so I reeled it in.. The little cricket had climbed up on top of the cork and was hanging on for dear life, trying not be eaten up! I thought it was so funny so I of course took his picture.... Trying to hold the pole up with one hand and take pic with other wasn't that easy and this is the clearest shot I got! I guess the lesson learned here is when things get bad, hang on and hope for the best! Too funny! :)

Here are a few shots of Jason and the Gavin fishing..

Fishing Adventure

Oh Boy! What a fishing adventure it truly was! One of Jason and Josh's friends, Wayne Bass, invited us to bring the kids fishing Tuesday afternoon at his pond. Of course I was thrilled because I absolutely love to fish and have been begging Jason to take me for weeks now. The kids were more excited about actually getting to see each other since they haven't been able to due to Gavin and Laney having pink eye and Josh and Jax having the flu... Glad that is all over! It was so sweet to see them all just light up with excitement when we got there and they hugged and jumped and squealed! So funny! Below is a picture of the three monkeys smiling for the camera! Gavin is 4, Jax is 3, and Laney is 2.. Hopefully it won't be long and baby Joy will be along for the fun too!
The two pics below are so funny to me.. When we arrived, once the excitement of seeing each other for the first time in a while wore off, Jax was still extremely excited to tell Gavin, Laney, and me all about the "trickets" we had to use to fish with.. I love it when he gets all fired up and excited to tell something.. He's so funny!

Well the fishing trip was rather unsuccesful... as Laney told Papaw Johnny, "Me and mommy only caught 3 trees." Ha! and that is the sad truth! :( I think that Jason and Gavin caught 2 and Josh and Jax caught a few, but Laney and I had horrible luck.. maybe due to the fact that she only has one tone of voice and that is extremely loud or could have been all the rocks and branches that got thrown in around us... not quite sure what the problem was! :)
Anyway they had a blast being together and it was absolutely hilarious to watch Jason and Josh fish with the kids mini poles since the kids were running around and not worried about fishing... should have made a picture of them.. Jason even had Laney's pink princess pole at one point - too funny! Anyway, was a great time outside together and I look forward to many more of these. Maybe we could plan a zoo trip Neisha and even baby Joy could go along on that one!
