UPDATE!




Please keep my daughter Kelli in your prayers. Yesterday she went for her routine OB check-up and the doctor could not find the babies heartbeat. She was sent for a sonogram and it was found that the baby had died. She was 16.5 weeks pregnant.

I can't begin to tell you how heartbroken our family is....but my concerns are for Kelli now. She will enter the hospital today, to have a procedure done to remove the baby. She is scared.....they will be putting her under. She doesn't know what to expect and is emotionally drained from this experience.

We are thankful for her three happy, healthy, beautiful children. But for her, losing a baby at any stage is just a huge thing. She has had two other miscarriages but was never this far along. And of course you ask questions over and over as to why these things happen. Sometimes there just aren't answers and we have to trust in the Lord to get through these difficult times.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers today. Thank you all so much.

Love - BJ

IT'S HOT HERE! HOW ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE?

Well, Summer has finally arrived! I had hoped that we would go through the entire Summer without humidity. I don't know why I think things like that. When you live in Maryland, you have to expect that it is gonna be HOT! We have been so lucky thus far. The weather has been absolutely beautiful. I guess it's time for that ole stinky stuff!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Summer! I just came back from a week away....visiting with my family on the Eastern Shore. Kelli, Aaron and the grandchildren were in Ocean City, Maryland this past week too. I managed to spend a couple of nights with them before I headed to Salisbury, where I have more family; my sister's. It was a very good week. I cherish the time I get to spend with family as they all mean so much to me. My sister's are 74 & almost 77. So I feel especially blessed that they are both in pretty good health. At least they still like to shop!!!!

I have updated some pictures from the last week. My camera still remains a huge part of me....as well as my laptop and my cellphone! I guess you could call me a "Material Girl". LOL. I NEED those items to keep me functional!

The grandchildren are growing so quickly and I enjoy them so much. They continue to bring me such joy...I can't imagine my life without those little darlings. And, the fifth one will be here in early January. I am happy to report that Kelli is finally feeling much better. Up to about a week or two ago.....she was really sickly. She will find out the sex of the baby very soon. I will keep everyone posted. Is anyone willing to wager any bets yet? The heartbeat is in the 160's. That's where the girl's were. Elijah's was in the 140's. If we go by that....we could have another little girl on the way! We don't care one way or the other. We welcome a healthy baby....any sex will do!

As always, you are all thought of much of the time. I'm kind of hooked on Facebook right now, playing Farmtown. It's very addictive, but you can spend as little or as much time on there as you want. Right! Just go check it out! I put my overalls on and plant me some crops! Oh my mercy be! You don't even have to know a thing about farming. I love my FARMPT!!!!

MY FAVORITE FOUR!
