Lori Crabbypants

I have been quite on the blog, but life has been anything but quite. 

The past month has been very busy and full of lots of ups and downs.  Truthfully, it has been mostly downs. 

We have been sick.  Still.  Again.  The flu (AGAIN), strep throat...this winter has not been fun.  I am SO OVER my family being sick.  Seriously.  If I could beat up being sick I would.  I MEAN IT!!!

Trav's grandpa passed away.  (It was his time but still very sad.)  Grandpa Howard was a great person and we all loved him a lot!  We already miss him but are comforted to think he is in heaven, reunited with his son (Trav's dad) Tom, and baby Ross, (Trav's brother).

Travis found out he is losing his hearing.  (Which he told me I could share but I don't really feel like talking about it, okay?)

I feel like Debbie Downer, which is why I haven't been blogging.  I dislike being negative.  I like to see the glass as half full.

But the down moments were reality this past month.  And we must take the bad with the good, right?

With that being said, I feel like we are on an upswing.  Some WONDERFUL things happened! 

Miss Madeline turned six. SIX!!!!  What a joy to celebrate her birthday with her and get to experience her excitement.  I will share photos soon!

And we had our ultrasound and found out we are having a healthy baby.  Such a blessing and relief!

So....Lori crabbypants has left the building. 

I got to go to my bible study group this morning for the first time in three weeks.  All seems right with the world again. :)

I hope you have had a great month!

More later,
