Zoo America

Today Mj and I went to Zoo America in Hershey. Mj had gotten a free ticket from his summer reading program at the library. It was a beautiful day for it! We got there and found out there was a sea lion show! Well, it just doesn't get any better than that!=) We had so much fun! We actually walked through the zoo 2 times!!!=)

Trip to Greenville

This past weekend Mj and I went to Greenville with my in-laws to see 2 of my brother-in-laws Ben & Tim. It was quite the trip. Mj was smashed in the back! He looked hilarious. Every once in awhile you'd hear him yell, "I'm trapped!!"
We got to see Ben & Tim play soccer. Saturday was filled with shopping, guns, ping-pong balls, & CiCi's!
It was a short trip, but lots of fun!!!

This is something I don't normally talk about, I guess because it still hurts. 6 years ago today, my mom passed away and met Jesus face to face. In the summer of 2000 my mom was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. She never drank alcohol, but a few people get this disease without drinking. In January of 2001 she was put on the organ donor list. She had gotten some calls for livers, but the Lord had a reason that she could not get one. By August 2001, she was very ill. We weren't sure if she would be able to be at my wedding on August 11, but the Lord is good. My wedding day was the best my mom had been in months! She was coherrent, she knew what was going on, she was even able to light the "mom's" candle at my wedding with help! The Lord is good to have given her and me that special blessing. However, the Lord saw fit for her to become worse. On September 11, she was at her worst and had to be flown out to the University of Pittsburgh hospital by helicopter (they had to get special permission because of the attacks of 9-11 and no aircraft was allowed to fly). I still remember the events of the next 2 days so vividly. I still don't understand why the Lord took my mom, but He is good and she has a new body and is praising Him today!
My mom was my best friend and I do miss her. It hurts that Mj will never know what a wonderful grandma he had.
My last thought is to please consider organ donation!! It was hard when my mom was on the list to pray, because we knew that someone had to die for her to have a chance to live. I hope that I can give someone a chance to live when I die and that through that they can also get the gospel and get a "new" life.

Thomas on the big screen

Today was an exciting day! First, it's my wonderful husband's birthday!=-) So what do we do for Mark's birthday - we take Mj on a surprise!=) We went out for breakfast and then we took Mj to see "Thomas on the Big Screen" at the Regal Theater! He was so surprised and excited! I don't think he knew what to do with himself. And then they handed out free Thomas activity books - could there be anything more exciting!=) We had a blast watching Thomas at the movies and now Mj has finished his new activity book and is playing with his Thomas engines and track!
