FIRST Fish!!

Yesterday we were invited out to the Roberson Ranch Party in Crumby, TX. I was excited to take Cutter since he had never really seen a cow or any other farm animal. Little did I know, the cows really wouldn't interest him, but FISHING, oh yeah now your talking!!
Daddy and Cutter (Daddy not being much of a fisher himself) sat down for some much needed quiet time and much required patience. This little man must have been good luck! Daddy and Lil Fisherman only had to sit there for a few minutes before Daddy felt a tug at his line!
Cutter was patient enough as Daddy reeled in the big monster he had on the other end of the line. What had Daddy caught??
A little Brim fish! Daddy was oh so please with his "Big" catch! Cutter was as well.
He couldn't wait to touch it!!
We had a great time! After all the fishing was done, we went and ate at an "All You Can Eat" catfish place. It was awesome and Cutter loved eating the catfish as well!!

Will you....

do me a favor and add this little guy, Stellan, to your prayers!?! He is a MIRACLE, diagnosed in utero with numerous heart issues, his parents were told he wouldn't survive. Several weeks later he was born with NO issues and was completely healthy until a month ago when he went into prolonged SVT. Last week he was flown to Boston, where is he being treated by an amazing pediatric cardiologist. Tomorrow he will undergo an ablation and he desperately needs all the prayers he can get; an ablation on an infant his size is very dangerous. MckMama is an amazing writer, so take a moment to familiarize yourself with their story and love for GOD! If you notice on the left hand side of her blog, she twitters and updates regularly so check back for updates!!

I started reading her blog after we found out that Cutter was having heart issues. Speaking of that, last week we had another echo cardiogram done on Cutter; when we went for his 15 month check-up our doctor noticed that his heart murmur sounded louder. She stated that sometimes right before the murmur closes, it gets louder and wanted us to double check just to be sure. Prognosis is that while it does sound loud, it doesn't look bad and has had little to no change from his 6 month echo cardiogram. Straight from the doctor's mouth: "This little guy has a GREAT looking ticker!" and I hope it stays that way too....

1st Annual Easter Egg Coloring!

This year Cutter really enjoyed coloring the Easter eggs. He wanted to do most of it by himself. I was a little weary, I didn't want him to get the egg dye on his clothes!! Since we were in Cove for the weekend, we got help from a special person - PAPA!! My Dad is home from Iraq and we spent Saturday at his house coloring eggs and then an egg hunt!! Can you say FUN!?!
We had lots of cool things for the kids to do to the eggs. We put sports wraps on Cutter's eggs.

Cutter loved writing on the eggs with a q-tip type dye.

Cutter loved watching the eggs change colors, and didn't want the eggs to stay in the dye for too long.
Emilee joined in the fun helping to dye her eggs - PINK!!
Our finished products looked to good to eat!!
