And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

Happy Easter

We hope that everyone enjoyed Easter and the reason we celebrate. God is powerful and loves us immensely.

We started the day early with church at Grandma A's church and then brunch at the church with Grandma A and Aunt Tiffany, Uncle Mark, Cousin Jacob and Cousin Michael. Then it was on to Grandma M's and some snacks with Grandma M, Uncle Chuck, Aunt Molly and Cousin Cole. Then on to lunch at Grandpa and Grandma C's with Grandpa, Grandma C, Aunt Tiffany, Uncle Mark, Cousin Jacob and Cousin Michael. The girls were dressed up in their pretty matching dresses that Grandma A had bought for them and they made it to Grandpas in their dresses. By the end of the day, the girls were getting pretty cranky. They only napped for a short while in the van and wouldn't take naps once we got home. I hope they sleep well tonight.

It has been a while since we posted, and there hasn't been much new around here, with one exception (read on to find out what...).

Thursday, Rebekah was supposed to be taking a nap. She, however, had other ideas. She took her pants off as well as her diaper and found a pullup in the drawer and tried to put it on. About then, I walked in to check on her. I asked her if she wanted to use the big girl potty and she said yes. So, that was the start to potty training. She has her ups and downs, but it has only been a couple of days. She will at times ask to use the potty and other times she wants nothing to do with it. We'll see how it goes, but I have hope. She has a piece of paper and has been getting Dora stickers as rewards for going on the potty. She has filled up two pages and we're working on number three. Now, having to go potty is one more delay tactic she uses when it is time to go to bed or do something she doesn't want to do. Oh the joys of parenthood!

I have been trying to train Sarah at the same time, but it isn't going so well. She won't stay on the potty for very long and wanders around the bathroom. She doesn't seem to know when she is going to pee. She might be standing (or walking around) and start to go and gets the funniest, surprised look on her face. I just don't think she is ready. I knew it was a long shot, but figured it didn't hurt to try.

Have a great week!

I am so happy that Rebekah is starting to potty train. What a big girl she is getting to be. I think that the sticker idea is wonderful. Good luck with that and glad to hear that you had a happy and blessed Easter.
~Hugs from us both to all of you~
