Snow Angel

On the last day I was in the hospital I lay on my bed all alone little Andi and I. I looked up out my window and saw the most beautiful sweet serine gentle snowflakes falling from the sky. I became very emotional. This and all my pregnancies have been miraculous and precious. As I looked at the snow I reflected on the births of my 3 children and the promise I was given that i would have 2 more come to our family after CharLee. The night before in the hospital there was a storm and the wind was really intense. This is much like my experiences with my children coming to earth. It is a hard fight but in the end I am given the most beautiful gift. Hence, we decided to name our precious little girl Andilyn Snow Lisonbee. She is just like the gentle sweet pure snow that I was looking at coming down from heaven to bless our family. I am so blessed and feel such gratitude to my Heavenly Father for my endearing loving husband and our three miraculous gifts from heaven.

Andi Delayed

So if you haven't heard. . .Andi's arrival was delayed. We showed up at the hospital ready to go at 8am. Thank you everyone for your prayers. . .they did not do an amnio since my state is just like Beaus. After we left the amnio room, we waited for another few hours to prepare for the C-section and then received the news that my Doctor could not be located, and when they found him he was in surgery. Another doctor checked my fluid again and asked if we could wait until Monday the 26th. Sooooo I came home mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted from the anxiety of it all. . .but its all good. My kids were a little confused since we had prepared them the night before. Beau just looked at my belly when I walked through the door with the most confused look on her face. I now have more empathy for those who go to the hospital and come home because of false alarms. And so the "Endurance Baby" pregnancy goes on for 5 more days:)

Miraculeux A' Vie

As many of you know, I am not one that likes the front and center. . .but after church I had thoughts that if I didn't have Mattthew take a few quick shots, I would regret it. . .I am glad we did. So here I am in full term glory.

This pic may look a bit somber, it is how this pregnancy has been for me a bit enduring and humbling.

Thank you my CharLee for taking this sweet shot of me and Luv.

It is exciting to think you little babes are going to meet up with your new heavenly friend in just a few days. Happiness is. . . miraculeux a 'vie.

While Daddy was Gone

Daddy's girl never likes it when the Luv has to go. It was a quick trip to film in CA this weekend. And no I didn't go into labor. So to pass the time ( a whole 1.5 days:) we. . .
Went to the Barnyard Boo at Thanksgiving point.
CharLee loved the games, Beau just wanted to pet all the animals as usual.
Balloons are always a hit.
We then came home and decorated our Halloween Cookie house.
The finished masterpiece.
My little creative ones, good job!

Indoor Campout Party

Because I was in such a pregger state this season, we missed our yearly family camp outs. So this week we decided to do a Indoor camp out with the kids.

Preparing our tinfoil dinners.

Oven roasted tinfoil veggies and mellows. No lights just candles and flashlights.

The Luv setting up the grand backdrop tent in our Family Room.

Roasting our Mellows.

CharLee was first to try out the tent and prepare the spooky flick.

One week to go being preggers, yeah!!!

We all ended up sleeping in our nice comfy beds though the sleeping bags were fun for the movie.

Tribute to the Moma Grand

For those who know my Mom adore her and those who don't, love her vivacious comfortable loving nature when you first meet her.These past several weeks I have been so blessed to have her here serving me and my Family. She has shown such selfless service to Me my family, her Mother and many others. I am also so proud of her developing her God given talent of Art and then sharing it with not only me growing up , my kids and others she now shares with at her art school who I know are learning so much. She is an example of what our role of a Mother here on earth is supposed to be: serving, loving and nurturing her family, serving others and also developing her unique gifts and then sharing them. I am proud of her. She often says she feels bad she didn't teach me how to cook the "normal traditional" foods, but I know she has taught me exactly what I need for my own well being and my Family's health. . . and we are making our own fun traditions all while staying healthy. Especially now since I have seen such a difference in little CharLee. Mom I am so grateful for you and feel so blessed for all you have done and the years you sacrificed your desires to learn and teach the things to make our life a bit easier.

Thank You. We Love You!
