Now for updates and info!

IT'S MADISON'S BDAY! She turned 5 today. I am a ball of emotions! I was in tears when we sang Happy Birthday at her party today when I saw that big number 5 candle on her cake. It hit me like a ton of bricks! She was so excited this morning.. she said, "Mommy it's my birthday!! I'm 5 years old and I'm not going to be 4 anymore!" She skipped around the house so happy to finally be 5... and all I could think was how right she was.. she will NEVER be 4 again. Four was a fabulous age for us... I'm extremely sad to see it's already gone. On a great note I feel my prayers for NO RAIN on our party were answered! It rained all around us.. but only sprinkled on and off here at the house so the kids got to run in and out all day.. it really was the best party ever! Madison loved every minute of it! There were no fights between kids, no fussing, no whining, no nothing. It was incredible! (it only could've been improved if poor Jonah would've been well enough to be here and the Parker family!! We missed you guys and I'm worrying for and about you constantly right now with your sick boy!)

On a sad note, I took a pg test this morning.. negative. It's still pretty early... I'm still praying that result will change if I retest in a few days... but it was still pretty depressing. We'll see what happens in the near future! Clayton is super excited because he just figured out that I can buy tests at the Dollar Store... his face lit up when I got one the other day when we went! "You mean that's just ONE dollar?! Really?! Well stock up!" He's so funny! I probably will be stocking up and testing every day until the hag shows! I'm feeling insane about it this month for some reason. (probably because I know i actually ovulated.. that is always helpful when trying to get pg!)

Happy note again! We're going on a mini vacation starting TOMORROW! So if I'm not around.. that's why. We're heading to Little Rock tomorrow to visit with family, staying with my mom that night, going to Hot Springs the next morning and spending the day doing whatever floats our boat. :) That night we're thinking of going back to my mom's and then the next day going to Wild River Country. THe kids will love it and so will we! I'm so excited!

Another huge blessing... Clayton's overtime money is really adding up each pay period now. It has been such a breeze him working it! I really feel that God has smiled down on us so much lately.. except the not being pg yet.. but I know he's working on it!

Longest post ever?!! I had a lot to update on! See you guys after vaca!!

i'm sorry about the test, but i'm holdin' out hope that it'll be different in a few days. i'm also sorry we missed the party - i'm glad it was awesome for you guys, though. and let's just be honest, you know it went so well BECAUSE my children were not there! ;) i'm still worried about him, too, i'll keep you updated. and just think, you're only cry-e about her turning 5 because you're a good mama!

Ah pahleeze! Your kids would've had a blast! There were tons of boys here for them to run around with! It was so funny.. the boys stayed outside the entire time, the girls sat inside doing hair and coloring!

I loved your long post! Happy b-day, Madison! I'm glad the party went so well. Also, I'm praying for the pg test!
