Prayer Request and WeeKenD FuN!

First of all I am sending out a prayer request on behalf of my beautiful niece Jessica and her hubby Alvin. She will be induced tomorrow (Monday) night, and as many know her baby was diagnosed with some heart deffects. They have told them that he will be having heart surgery within the first week of birth. We held a special fast for all of them today and will be fasting for them again next Sunday. They have already picked out a name for the little guy, Lewis Jess Pease, so if you would pray for him specifically that would be great.

We love you Alvin and Jessica, you guys are going to be awesome parents and we can't wait to meet this special little guy that the Lord is blessing our family with. You are in our prayers!!

Next, I have been bribing Morgon for two weeks now that if he would start going potty in the toilet that we would take him to the zoo. Well, FINALLY this week he decided it was time and has been doing great since. So we took the kids to the zoo on Saturday to celebrate this great occasion of only having two in diapers now. (lots better than the five) The kids were SUPER good and even did great at dinner at Cracker Barrel. AFter the zoo and dinner we went and visited one of our favorite misisonaries, Elder Thornton. We dropped him off two bags full of groceries and visited with him for about 20 minutes. It was great to see him. I started not feeling good yesterday at the zoo and stayed home from church today since my throat is KILLING me and Miles is sounding RSVish. But overall the weekend was GREAT!

Looks like you had a great time. How come I keep seeing all these trips down here..but no call to come see me??? I mean you can't be that busy...not like you have a ton to do or anything! Oh.. I am totally addicted to the coupons. I am saving tons and my pantry is quickly filling up. Thanks!

You two are amazing. I love the picture with all the kids in strollers, or behind pushing. Bet you got the looks a few times. A kindergarten teacher on a field trip couldn't do it better!. Our thoughts and prayers have been with your little grand-nephew.
