Updated Belly Pics!!!

These are the last 4 weeks of belly pics. As you can see my little Tuffster is growing!!! I think these are backwards but I know you get the point.

Ashley and Jordie went to Gatlinburg Valentines weekend for a little getaway and they (especially Jordie HeHe) obviously had a fun time!!! I think he was doing the happy dance since they were in Gatlinburg in a fabulous cabin to boot!!!

Not much going on around here except some sickness. My Tori has been home for 3 days with a terrible sinus infection YUCK!!! But I think she is safe to go back to school tomorrow. YiPPee!!
A little update on her testing....We went to the doctor for her sinus infection so I decided to talk to her doctor about the issues we have been having. She said for us to get her tested through a psychologist and then the school would have to immediately test her. So that is what we are in the process of doing now. Our insurance will cover 80% of the visit but if she does in fact have a learning disability they won't pay after that ruling. But if she has some kind of personality disorder they will cover up to 45 visits a year. I told hubby they would probably want to see us 100 times per year the way me and her get along. Ha! Just kidding. Anyway, it feels good to finally having some kind of progress. Her first appt. is March 11 for a consultation. Thanks for all the prayers we can surely use them.
We did have a parent/teach conference scheduled for Tuesday but she has been so sick I had to cancel and reschedule. So I will certainly keep everyone up to date.

Baby Tuff Update!!!!!!

Well, me and hubby went with my daughter and her better half to meet our grand baby for the first time last week. He was being a little stubborn because he was sleeping on his stomach and did not want to turn over for anything. But we did find out that he is still a boy and that is exciting. At one point he had his hand up by his face and it looked like he was waving. So Sweet!!! Anyway here is a few pics from the ultrasound. The image is a little crooked because that's just the way it scanned.

Anyway I have purchased a few things for my little Tuffster. The one thing that I absolutely love are these little camo shoes that I got from

This is the cutest site for babies and young children. Are these not just the cutes thing you have ever seen. I love them.

I have been struggling a lot lately with my youngest daughter, Victoria. Needless to say me and her just do not get along...AT ALL. and sometimes I just think she hates me and I am sure she thinks the same thing about me. But believe me, I love this girl with all my heart. I am just so scared that she and I won't have a good mother daughter relationship like I have with my other girls. It doesn't matter how nice I am or how nice I ask her to do something she always has an attitude that honestly....I don't know how to handle. I can't ask her a question about her day without an attitude. She absolutely will not take no for an answer. She will beg, plead, throw a fit or whatever she has to do to get that attention. I have tried to give her positive attention but it does no good. I feel like I have just given up and it really hurts me to think that nothing I have tried is working. She has a lot of trouble with school work and I have been trying for over a year to have her tested at her school (to no avail) and she gets really frustrated so that may have a lot to do with it. I have really been down about this lately so if anyone has any suggestions or has experienced something similar I would love to hear from you.

Happy Valentine's Day To All!!

Just wanted to wish all my bloggy friends a Happy Valentine's Day. Me and hubby usually don't do flowers or gifts just because, well, we just usually don't. However, this year hubby did send me flowers at work which was a nice surprise. I got hubby a card, my big girls a card and the girls that are still at home got a balloon and stuffed animal sent to school.

We had a birthday dinner today for my wonderful sister-in-law. In the past, if it hadn't been for her being there for our family I don't know how we would have gotten through the toughest 2 years we have been through thus far. She is a great Aunt to our girls and a great sister-in-law. She is now moving about 30 minutes from us into a new home that her and her better half has bought. So she will be missed.

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!!!

Just Bored!!!

Well I haven't posted in a few days and my cuz Patrice over at told me I was being a terrible blogger. I think she was just blog hopping and bored so she called to tell me that my bloggy days recently were BORING!!! How RUDE!!!

Anyway, hubby has fully recovered from his kidney stones and he got his stent removed yesterday so he is a happy camper now. Except he had to go back to work today...HeHe.

I am getting really excited about being a MeMe in July. I haven't posted an updated belly pic because, well, because I am just lazy I guess. But I will get those posted soon.

I have been really excited lately because our God is so good. If you haven't been kept up to date on Baby Harper over at then you have missed a true miracle that our God is so famous for. And also Baby Brayden over at These families have been through alot in the last month. But with God's grace He has given these families a miracle. I am so happy to say that Baby Harper is home and doing great except she doesn't like to sleep. And little Brayden is still in the hospital because he isn't eating well from his bottle. So keep these two families in your prayers as they embark on this new journey.

Well that's about all I have for now and I will try to be a better blogger.....Patrice. HeHe

A Basket Extraction!!

Yep, that's right!!! Boogs had to go back in for another kidney stone procedure yesterday. After his first procedure he started having pains about 4 days later and it continued without any passing of any stones. So off he went back to the Dr. and he sent him directly to the hospital for a different procedure and now Boogs has the dreaded STENT. Yep, he is living his worse nightmare. He has always been terribly afraid of anything foreign in his man parts. So needless to say, he is not a happy camper. He will get the stent out on Tuesday. Dr. told me if he just couldn't handle it that he would meet him in his office to remove it over the weekend. How noble of him!!!! Anyway, I will be trying to convince Boogs to stick it out until the end (Tuesday) just so there are not anymore complications with passing all the stone particles.

Wish me luck......
