Chloe's 3rd Birthday party

Well I finally decided on a Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter Tea party theme. It turned out to be alot of fun. I had all the kids come in silly hats and I set up the table with different tea sets and hanging lanterns in defferent sizes. The kids had a blast and were really good. It was pretty quiet for a while. They even watched a bit of Alice and Wonderland. I was really impressed with all these younge kiddos. I am posting a few pictures from the party!

these were the party favors
we did a pot of dirt (pudding and oreo's) instead of cake! It was a big hit with the kids. Even though this was not a part of Alice and Wonderland, I thought it would fit in well with the tea party and with the boys. I painted red hearts and black diamonds on it to fit in with the Queen of hearts!
I found this awesome wreath idea from http://www.larkandlola.blogspot.com/. She had some great ideas!
This is my beautiful Chloe! My mom helped me make this Alice costume. The pattern was difficult to follow. My mom has been sewing for a long time...there was no way I could do this without her! And it turned out FANTASTIC! I can't wait until halloween!

Day 2- Recovery

Alright so today was not as bad. Emotionally.....I am okay. I really have given it to the Lord and I know that through him, all things are possible! I will have another baby, and this baby will come at the right time in our life. Atleast when God thinks it's the right time! lol. So I will not get dicouraged! I will keep my faith and I will keep on praying! Now as far as pain goes....this is aweful. Now for those of you that know me know that I deliver my babies natural. But atleast in the end you have a beautiful baby! But to be contracting constantly to be running back and forth to the restroom was awful. I was a little sore today but right now I am fine. But in all honesty...this has brought the creative side out in me. I think it is my outlet! I have plans for painting the bedroom and decorating a bit, changing my scrapbook table, and doing some intesting things around the house! Hobby Lobby here I come! LOL.
Thank you again for all of your wonderful words! You are amazing!

Laying it at his feet.

Well I am beginning my blog, which was meant to be a pregnancy blog but is now not the case. I was 9 weeks pregnant up until today. The Lord has decided to take my life unto a different path. I know miscarriages are normal and it happens more often than not, but it is always that "it will not happen to me mentality". I thought that with 3 other smooth pregnancies, that this one would be the same. But it was not. I am very sad and I will be grieving. BUT, this is in the Lords hands and not mine. I am using his strength now and not mine. He has my baby and that is the best place that it can be. Although I am sad, it is also a time to rejoice that my baby is with Angels. I did not get a chance to know the sex of my baby or what it would have felt like to have that little baby move around in my belly, but I know that it is going to be taken care of.

I will not let this take the best of me. I have 3 wonderful children that still need me. Yet, I am facing the biggest issue still. Telling the children that they are not going to have a brother or sister at this time. They are resiliant though! I have faith that the Lord will sooth their souls, as well as mine and my husbands. I know that he is grieving as well. He also lost a baby. So please pray or him as well.

Thank you to all my friends and family, who have sent me wonderful words of encouragement and prayers! I will forever be greatful for you all. We are blessed to have such wonderful supporters!
