Prayer of Praise

Serena started a new job today. She is a Nanny for a family here with a 8 month old boy. His name is Jack and the parents are Mike and Jamie. They seems like a wonderful family and they just recently moved from the Seattle area. Praise God for the extra income and for the continued connections. Happy Halloween Y'all!

Pumpkin Cake

Just thought I should share another one of Serena's grand creations. She made this cake for our church small group meeting tonight. Chocolate cake with Bavarian cream filling. Yum, Yum!

This last week has been so rough for sleep. Tyson discovered how to get out of his crib and all of a sudden his sleeping habits changed. He went from sleeping close to 12 hours a night to 8ish. My sister was visiting us this week with her two kids so Serena and I were sleeping on the floor in Tyson's room. This played a factor in Tyson's sleep I'm sure, but I didn't expect it to be so bad. After getting off work between 10:30 to 11pm I'll get home and try to do homework. Then I might go for a run followed by a shower and go to bed. This is the time that Tyson thinks he needs to get up from his "nap." Then in the morning he seems to get up earlier and earlier. At his nap time today he decided to get out of his crib and cry at the door. We let him cry hoping he would go back to bed. After a little bit of time passed the crying stopped and we saw his little body leaning against the bottom crack of the door. (Poor little Bugger)

Just wanted to tell everyone thank you for your prayers. Tyson's fever finally broke last night and he had a much better day today. God Bless Y'all!

Rough Night

I wanted to let everyone know that last night was extremely difficult. Tyson had 2 seizures about 4 hours apart. (about Midnight and 4am) We called 911 both times and the second time he took an ambulance ride to emergency. This makes a total of 4 seizures. The first I wrote about back in Feb., but I failed to mention the second in May. Please pray for Tyson that his fever would disappear and that he would be healed from the seizures. Pray for us all as it seems life is more than tough right now. Thank You Y'all and God Bless You.

Taking One For The Team

Money has been a little more than tight since we arrived here in OKC, so I've been trying to work. I started off working maintenance at school, but they could only give me 8 hours a week. After some time I realized that I would have to bite the bullet and do something I vowed to never do. There is a fine eating establishment that goes by the name of Chick-fil-a. I've always loved there food (especially there ice cream) and enjoyed the environment of restaurant. So now I find myself breaking my rule to work in fast food. Not exactly what I had in mind, but they provide more hours and I'm guaranteed Sundays off. Please pray for me as I struggle with being there. I need some strength to make it in the long run. Pray for my co-workers as they seem to be struggling with many things as well.
