One day we stepped on a roller

coaster that went from slow to

high speed with nothing in

between.... It's gonna be quite a ride so hang on tight it might be a while before we get off!

My life has been a roller

coaster the last couple of weeks.

It started off with finding out

my dad has cancer, which we

have already seen blessing in

this.My dad went home to

California the day he found

out and spent the weekend

with his brothers and sisters.

then we got the worst news

anyone should get. My uncle

Norman was murdered..Yes

Murdered!! I am in shock

then Weston got put into the

hospital.He was running a

fever of 102 and throwing up all his feedings.

we had to spend 2 days in the

hospital then we get out and

headed to california to be

with family....

It is hard to think of life

without Norman,but life has to

go on.. one of my cousin's said

it perfect "Our hearts may be

broken but our family never

will"... Norman was the COOL

uncle he had seen and done it


I Norman you or AKA.... I LOVE YOU

Today was a hard day for me,I think just being home and having time to think... It is finally starting to sink in. Graycee comes up to me and said "Mommy are you sad"? I said Yes I miss Uncle Norman so much. She said oh mommy he FINALLY made it to heaven! Don't Cry.

I guess I need to just hold on to what I believe and know that GOD does have a plan if I like it or NOT.

March 8th 2010
Is a day that changed my life FOREVER, It went something like this:
Monday's Mark doesn't have to be at school until 11 am so we TRY to get up early and eat together. Does it happen all the time NO,But we sure TRY!

This Monday was nothing special got up ate gave the 3 babes bathes and just enjoyed are time with daddy before he had to leave. The time came he had to leave we said are goodbyes and daddy got a THOUSAND kisses before he walked out the door! We like to kiss daddy a lot just in case while he is sitting in class he forgets how much we LOVE him he can remember all the kisses he got before he left.

He leaves I go into change diapers and about 2 seconds later Mark comes in and say"Annie are you dressed?" I said Yes why? Because your dad is here and would like to talk with us.

I come out to the family room and my dad and Mark are standing there My dad goes on to tell us He has been going to the doc. for the last couple weeks having his PSA numbers watched, He goes on to tell us they think he may have prostate cancer. I was SHOCKED! I just started crying and I mean crying hard,poor Graycee is looking up at us and says,Daddy why is mommy and Papa crying?? he told us what the next steps were. He was going that wed. to have some tests done to see if it was Cancer, well sure enough on Friday we found out that it is Cancer.
He goes in this wed. to have a full body scan done, This will tell us if it has left the prostate and from here they will make a game plan of what to do. The GOOD thing is this kind of Cancer is very treat able if it is still in the prostate. We are hoping they caught it early enough. Thank goodness he has yearly check ups with the fire dept.

My mind is going CRAZY.. Just like I am in a NIGHTMARE and I am waiting for someone to wake me up.

To me my dad is SUPERMAN I thought Superman never got sick??
I do know that what ever the outcome is we WILL GET THRU it!

Here is a poem I found on a blog that a girl wrote for her dad and when I read it awhile ago I just started to cry because this is how I feel about my dad.. and my HERO he will always be....

When I was just a little girl, There was nothing I could not do.

All I needed was Daddy's love, And all my dreams came true.

Something made you different, I knew that all along.

A young girls Perfect Hero, Who was always brave and strong.

You mended all my scratches, and healed my wounded heart.

A knight in shining armor, You always played the part.

Now that I am older, My hero you remain.

You’re still the hero who believes in me, But there has been a change.

You still take care of me when I'm hurt, And give advice to guide my soul.

But now I see it’s more than that, Without you my life just would not be whole.

Your example has replaced the armor, And leads me in all I do.

You taught me to rely on the Lord, And faith will guide me through.

You told me that God loves me, And he wants me to come home.

Christ suffered the Atonement, So I won’t have to try alone.

So how do you tell your Hero the feelings that run so deep,

When words can't possibly dictate, they just make the feelings cheap.

I guess the only answer is to say the best I can,

You are the Perfect Hero, You are the Greatest Man.

So to a little girls Knight in Armor, I hope that you can see,

My love for you is endless, And my Hero you'll always be!

Mark had to do a bus trip up there so I was LUCKY enough to tag along. MArk has been gone A LOT lately with either school, work or more work he is ONE Busy guy! Thanks Mark for working so hard and still finding time to come home and be a GREAT
daddy. My favorite part of the day is when I hear your truck
pull up....

going off about WHAT a DAY I have had with
our 3 little babes. He just listens and never complains I do enough of that for
ALL of us.
