Tuesday's Light

Tuesday's light will shine on forever in our hearts.

Our family has been touch by the trials and tribulations of the Whitt family. May their strength continue on during this terrible time of loss.
It has taught us to never take life for granted and to love each and every moment we have.
We grieve with heavy heavy hearts but will always have Tuesday's light to remind us that life is a precious gift.

Revelation 21:1-4

And I saw a new earth, for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away and the sea is no more. I saw new Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: Look! The tent of God is with mankind and he will reside with them and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them.
And he will wipe every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

For Tuesday: A Fundraiser

These beautiful pendants have been made specially for Tuesday by Mark, a wonderful designer at HomeStudios.
My good friend Sharlene went to him and asked him if he would be willing to design a piece for her to be sold for a fundraiser and instead he has designed two beautiful pieces and is offering 10% of his profits for ALL sales from now until Valentine's Day to go towards Tuesday's fight against neuroblastoma. This includes purchases of any of the items in his store! This is a HUGE gift!
These pieces are incredible, affordable & handcrafted
on Scrabble tiles! There are so many beautiful designs to choose from and even gift sets that include the necklaces as well.
Please take the time to look at his pieces and remember that you are helping a very sick little girl in the process.
Please go
HERE to see these beautiful pieces. Thank you!

* If you do make a purchase, please put "FOR TUESDAY" in the comment section on your ETSY form so that Mark knows this is for the fundraiser.

Note: Due to the already high demand (thank you!), many people have told me they go to purchase something and it says sold out. If this is the case, scroll to the very bottom of the page and select contact seller and let him know what you want. He will email you back and make sure you get it!

Jumbos in Bumbos

The boys were playing very nicely yesterday, they would sit in the bottom of what's left of their first Diego Hut and watch their beloved Osawald.
When their favorite show was over they headed toward the Bumbos. The first time they sat in the bumbo they couldnt get out, I thought ohhhh cool a time out chair....wronggggggg.

Here they are way back when they first started using the Bumbo
Ty in the purple one and Cayden in the blue

Here they are now, and they are using the same color as they did when they were 6 months old.

Ohhh what's this?
Cayden throwing a tantrum...why on Earth would he do that????

Ahaaaaa.... Ty has taken over the blue Bumbo!

Poor Cayden

Dont you just love temper tantrums
A face only a mother can love!

The weather is warming up again so we took the boys out yesterday for some fresh air. That always helps for a nice quiet bedtime.

They like to run around kick empty plastic water jugs or a soccer ball occasionally falling on their face and eating some dirt. Its pretty funny actually.
Then there are the times when one of them has to have something the other has and proceeds to carry on a meltdown.
Their favorite thing to do is follow Larry around everywhere.

Oh and thanks to Jessica I have a camera that takes clear pictures. She got 2 this past Dec, one for her bday and one for xmas and gave me one to use until I get the expensive one I want lol.

We are hoping to save up and get that awesome tree house they sell at Sam's Club to put in the front yard. That ought to be fun to put together LOL.
Along with that it will be neat to just make the front yard one big play yard.

The Girlies

The girls are 3 months and about a week old now.
They are getting better at night and I can usually get a 4 hr stretch in between the first feeding (after I get to bed and settled) and about 3 after that.
We have started putting cereal in the bottles and soon will be starting the spoon and introducing fruits and veggies, Yay.

The boys do well with them and love giving them kisses.

It can be a handful juggling both sets of twins but we find some sort of routine to get through it.

Laurel is in the red, Jaeda in the pink

Off With The Beard

During his vacation Larry decided to grow his beard out. They dont allow beards at the refinery so he got to work on 4 weeks of growth.

Sunday night, back to work on Monday and off the beard must come. While trimming it down he decided to take the mustache with it, ALL of the mustache.
This is the 2nd time I have ever seen him without it.
I will miss the beard and am waiting for the stache to grow back lol.
it sure does hide the fact that he has no upper lip, Jess and he have the same smile and its more noticeable now.

Just Pictures

Well...A lot of pictures!
Still trying to catch up from time lost in December for picture sharing.
Here are pictures in no particular order
