Here are the words to the hymn "Sing and Be Happy"
If the skies above you are gray, You are feeling so blue,
If your cares and burdens seem great all the whole day through,
There's a silver lining that shines in the heavenly land,
Look by faith and see it my friend, Trust in His promises grand.
Often we are troubled and tried, Sick with sorrow and pain,
There are others living in sin blest with earthly gain,
Take new courage we cannot tell what the morrow may bring,
When the dark clouds vanish away then your heart truly can sing.
Oft we fail the see the rainbow up in heaven's fair sky,
When it seems the fortunes of earth frown and pass us by,
There are things we know that are worth more the silver and gold,
If we hope and trust Him each day, We shall have pleasure untold.
Sing and you'll be happy today, Press along to the goal,
Trust in Him who leadeth the way, He is keeping your soul,
Let the world know where you belong, Look to Jesus and pray,
Lift your voice and praise Him in song, Sing and Be Happy Today!

I am now exhausted. For a pregnant woman who can hardly walk from one end of the house to the other without feeling like I am going to fall over, this was a workout. My adrenaline really kicked in. It has now went away and I am off to bed.

As for me, I am feeling some better. I went 3 days (fri, sat, and Sun) with no throwing up, but it did return on Mon. However, it has just been in the morning, and then I start feeling better in the afternoon. I went and had bloodwork done on Monday. They had a hard time getting blood because I was a little dehydrated and my veins tend to roll. So I have a yucky bruise from where one of the nurse dug and dug trying to get the vein before calling another nurse to try in a different spot. I had keytones and a little protein in my urine which was a little concern for the nurse. She consulted with a Doctor and she told her to tell me to drink 12 glasses of water a day and we'll recheck next week. Next week I will actually see a doctor and have an ultrasound so I'm excited about that. So, that's about it for now!

Our Day started at the Abner Creek Gator Fling with my girls along with Sarah. My Mom kept up with Sarah most of the time though. We headed home around 2:30 and then it was off to the Zoo. Just me, my girls, and Sarah. Samantha is still adjusting to having a newborn and an almost 3 year old at home, so she's a little exhausted. I thought I would give her a little break. We had to hurry around the zoo in 45 mins. We were a little late arriving. We still had a great time. But let me tell ya...by the time I got home I was EXHAUSTED! Being pregnant and taking care of 3 kids in the hot sun all day just isn't a good combination.
Kelly, it was great seeing you today:) I'm sorry I didn't get to chat longer, but my girls were so excited and ready to play. They won't stand in one place longer than a min.
Pictures to come soon! GOOD NITE!

The doctor referred them both to an Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor. They have HUGE tonsils, have trouble breathing through their nose , have sleep apnea (I think), etc. At night, you can hear them breathing all the way across the house, even with the TV on. They breath so loud at night, they are very restless, and often gasp for breath. They can't eat and breathe at the same time because they can't breathe through their nose. I've noticed this for quite some time but it's gradually gotten worse. So, she thinks they probably need their tonsils and adenoids taken out. I know this isn't a major surgery but the thought of my babies having surgery terrifies me. I know it will make them feel so much better in the long run though.

Rachel Addison Nance was born April 7, weighing in a a whopping 8lbs 15 oz. She is 21 inches long. She is a big, healthy, and beautiful baby girl. Say a little prayer for Samantha, they think she may have broken or cracked her tailbone during delivery. She is in a lot of pain. Sarah is very excited to be a big sister. When Chad came out to let us know she had been born, Sarah said, “Is she walking, can I hold her?” She had everyone in the waiting room laughing. We went back to see them and I was holding Sarah, Chad was holding the baby and she was crying. Sarah went to touch her and drew her hand back and said, “OOOH…she’s dirty”

Pregnancy Update: I am about 10 weeks and still getting sick as a dog. I have a doctors appointment on Wed. so I’m praying she gives me a prescription for Zofran. I have this awful taste in my mouth all the time, and drinking seems to make it worse. It taste like I have a penny in my mouth all the time. I chew a lot of gum for it’s the only thing that seems to help. I get very motion sick so I have a hard time getting on the computer or watching TV. That’s why the few post lately.
Girls Update: The girls are doing great! They got report cards today and both girls are at a mid first grade reading level, and above grade level in their writing. I’m so proud of them. Kelsey is having some issues with her eyes, but thankfully she doesn’t need glasses, just a little therapy. She has what is called convergence efficiency, which means when she reads, one of her eyes doesn’t work as it should, which causes her bad headaches, her eyes start watering and hurting. We go back to see the Ophthalmologist in about a month so hopefully, it will have improved.
Shane Update: He is finally getting settled in at his FOB (Foward Operating Base). He is doing okay, but seems so depressed:( If you could say a little prayer, I’m sure he would appreciate it.
