Update

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I've updated you. Thank you all for your sweet comments and prayers for my grandmother. As of today, Monday, she is still hanging in there. The doctors continue to say that her kidneys are deteriorating but that she is putting out more urine. Go figure?! Please be praying for my mom and her siblings today because they will have to make some decisions today about her healthcare. I'll share more later about the precious time we were able to spend with her.

Last week was a crazy week! Steven and I were planning on attending Timothy-Barnabas, a Pastor's conference, that we go to every year. When we left last Tuesday, we packed as if we were going to be able to attend the conference but knowing that it probably wouldn't work out.
But God is so good! Even though my mom wasn't able to keep Caleb, my sister had taken off work all week. (They just closed on their new house and were trying to move in! I told you it was crazy!!) So Caleb was able to hang out with Aunt Laura, Uncle Phil and Chaz. The hotel where the conference was being held was 20 minutes away from the hospital where my grandmother was, so we were able to visit her each day!
Just a word about the pastor's conference, if you've never gone, it is a MUST! Pastor Johnny and Mrs. Janet do an excellent job encouraging and loving on pastor's and their wives. They absolutely spoil the wives by giving you a gift EVERY time a session ends! We received things like a super cute black and white polka dot bag, a bracelet, a set of make-up bags, and some other things that I can't remember right now. And during the ladies' sessions, they gave away diamond earrings and necklaces, which I didn't win :( but oh well. I also had fun getting to hang out with Hollie, IRL! And she'll probably have a thousand new readers since her mom told everyone about her blog!!!!
Oh yeah, the first night of the conference, we were able to see the new movie Fireproof. It was sooooo good! If you have the chance the weekend, you NEED to go see this movie. It's released this Friday!!!!

One more important thing that happened this past Friday......
my baby boy turned 2!!!
We'd already celebrated his birthday the Sat. before (it seems like a lifetime ago) and hopefully, I'll get some pictures posted soon! But right now, I've got to go cause my house is a wreck and I've got so much laundry to do, I may never catch up!

Thanks again for all your prayers.
I love you guys!

I've heard about this "Fireproof" I'm gonna have to see if it's around here.
Meanwhile, I saw that your grandmother is doing better . .
Praise God!
