This weekend

We are having a huge yard sale/ antique furniture sale this weekend at the house. I've posted mostly on this on our other website (to the right). I am getting rid of ALOT of nice clothes (mostly mine). If any ladies need any size 14 and some 16 size clothing, then come by and look. Also getting rid of some of the kids clothing (mostly Ivee and Brittney). Em and Ethan will have some. I am praying that we can do well this weekend with getting some of the furniture sold! We shall see what God has in store for us. Praying for a nice, beautiful day.

The Malpas boys are doing better! Austin will be discharged soon, but Drew has a longer recovery. He already had 4 transfusions in 3 days! He is lethargic, and depressed, but he will make it through! God is faithful! Hope all of you are well.

Oh, I need to post some new pics.
Here is Ivee being Oh So SILLY in a tin bucket that she loves to pull out from underneath the stairs in the living room!
And I was growing my hair out for locks of love. This past week I decided it was time to lose it! I had cut it before Ivee's cancer was discovered in '06, so I have been growing it out for about 1 1/2 years. I only trim it myself, cause frankly, I just don't care and it is faster and cheaper to do it yourself. Well, I did let someone cut a "style" for me after this time. So, here are pics of my "once every year and half or so" haircut. Take it all in, cause it won't happen again for a long time :)

Prayer Request

If you would, please remember 4 year old Drew Malpas, and mom Melody and dad Kevin, in your prayers. He was admitted to Mobile Infirmary Saturday. They diagnosed him with E Coli which is extremely serious in children. His intestines are in serious condition and his kidneys are not functioning properly. Drew's mom Melody taught with Emmett at Robertsdale, and we have kept in touch with them through Upward Basketball and aquaintances.

My New Blog

I updated my new blog today. The Link is over to the right. For those of you interested, or if you know someone who is, visit it to see what I have on ebay right now. I'll be doing more to the site later, letting you see items before I put them on ebay. I'm excited and I hope you out there who love antiques, furniture and more will enjoy this site. I've posted the link below for now also, thanks.

Picture Update

Here are some pics. I'm catching up over the past few weeks.

Here is Ivee with her "t-bone". She licked all over it. It was quite yummy I suppose.

Can't you tell by that look on her face. Yum, Yum!

Here she is with one of her favorite toys, or should I say Ethan's. She loves this light saber. I guess she has Star Wars fever already at the young age of 2. With her daddy, that is no surprise.
Mommy and daddy got her a little tikes play castle. She likes it, and has already had a tumble from it. The tumble was caused from attitude though.

Here she is at her party. We covered her g-button really well and allowed her to go on the water pad with her sister and friends. She really liked it. Here she is with Britt, Ashlynn, and Sara.

Here is a big motley crew of them. Ethan, Ashlynn, and Sara. Then Abigail, Brittney, Ivee, Olivia, and Ella. They had a great time, and the weather was kind to our outing.
Then, it was cake time. She had a great time digging through it with her fingers and throwing it to the ground for the ants. Thanks to Diane for making her the cutest Fishy "Nemo" cake.

Then she opened her presents. She enjoyed diggin the paper and stuff out of the bags. Finally, we all said bye-bye. This was such a good pic of her and my friend Diane. I told Ivee to say cheese and she hammed it up for the camera. She's my sister as a child all over again.
This is from Sunday morning. Anna spent the night, and on the way to church they all were passed out. So early in the morning. Glad I had my camera!

A long weekend

Well, it was a long, but fun, weekend! Ivee's party was great, and I appreciate everyone who came to celebrate it with us. (And those who tried, but a flat tire got in the way!) I will post some pics asap, promise.
Ivee had a swallow test today, and even though it was with a speech therapist we have never had before, I saw improvement. And, based on what I told her of the previous test, she seemed to agree with me and what I saw happen today. Ivee, however, did not cooperate. We did manage to get some down her throat, and even with the crying, I didn't see her aspirate once! She seemed to swallow without having much difficulty. It made Em and I very happy, and makes us want to push really hard to get her the right therapy. Early Childhood Intervention is nice and they give great advice, but I believe that if Ivee had the right treatment a few days a week, we would see dramatic improvement. So, that was good.
Tomorrow, our niece, Erin, graduates from Daphne. We are proud of her. Em will go to graduation. I think Ivee needs to stay home, so I will be there in spirit. Erin's softball team from Daphne is also in the state finals, so the fam is going to travel to Montgomery this Friday and Saturday to support her and the team there. Pray all goes well, and that the kids will be on their best behavior while there. Ivee hasn't been outside for long periods of time, so we are praying that she will do well.
Well, Em and I are undergoing a new "hobby/business." We are selling on ebay, and trying our hand at selling antique furniture. I plan on perhaps starting a "blog" to display these items so that people who are interested can view them and the prices there. So far, the furniture on ebay hasn't sold. So, if anyone out there is interested, or knows someone who is, in antique furniture or ideas, I'll start that soon (perhaps). Look for a link on my blog to it. I'll need a cute name for it, so I need to get the wheels a turnin'.
Take care and talk at you all soon. I promise to post the bday pics SOON!

Ivee's Birthday


Em and I want to invite anyone who wants to come to Ivee's birthday party!

It will be at the Bay Minette Park

There is a playground/fort and water pad, so kids bring your swimsuit.

It will be Saturday, May 10th from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

I'll have some cake there and some other stuff, but I can't promise I'll have enough since I am opening this up to anyone who wants to come. If you would like, you can bring a bag of chips or something, but you do not have to feel obligated.

Below are the directions to the park in Bay Minette (I hope they are correct), and we hope to all see you there. Any questions, comment or email me.

(Please, do not feel obligated to bring Ivee any gifts. We just want to celebrate her life with you!)
In case there is to be bad weather, watch my blog. I will let you know if we will cancel, or move it. Thanks, and we can't wait to celebrate with you.
