Beach Bums

We ventured out to Seabrook beach yesterday for an afternoon of fun in the warm sun. The kids really enjoyed the beach especially Thomas. He didn't have a care in the world. Gracie on the other hand is always concerned about getting dirty. Take a look at her idea for staying clean.

Sitting on a Bucket to keep somewhat clean :)

Mouth full of food! As usual...

Happy to be at the beach!

How awesome is our Lord!!

This makes me very emotional because I am just completely overwhelmed. The Lord has provided way more then my mind can comprehend. When I delivered Thomas neither Thomas or I had health insurance so we were excepting to get a large bill. That we did! Well I called the hospital to see if there was some kind of financial paperwork I could fill out to help lower the payment. There was!! So Tommy and I filled out all the necessary information and about 1 month later I received a letter in the mail from Roper St. Francis. Roper St. Francis said they were thankful to receive my request and that they would like to cover 100% of my bill along with Thomas's. That is $8,500.00 worth of medical bills paid for. Praise God!! I could do nothing but cry.... Could barely even tell Tommy over the phone. So anyway Thomas had his 9 month check up today and we still don't have insurance for him so we some money set aside to pay for this visit.

Well, I checked Thomas in and starting filling out his 9 month paperwork on what he is doing when the lady sitting at the counter asked me to please come here she had a couple of questions.

Nurse "Mrs. Martin did you fill out some financial paperwork at Roper?"

Me "Yes, when I delivered Thomas"

Nurse "Okay perfect. Well do you know that that same paperwork you filled out will cover all of his doctors appointments until April 2011."

Me "What?" Are you serious? So you mean to tell me I don't have to pay for any of his visits?

Nurse " No, ma'am he is covered"

Thank you Lord for always providing! Never could I have imagined this would happen!

What is going on!! Slow Down Please

Okay, Thomas has figured out how to crawl full speed ahead no stopping and no slowing down. It has only been a couple of days of this crawling and what do I find him doing today! Trying to stand up without holding on to anything. Thomas son please slow down you are doing way too much for mommy to handle :)

Looking Back

I was looking back and thinking how much our lives have changed in just a few short years. I found pictures of our last three Easters. Hard to believe out things started out and how they are now.  I am so happy with our little family and I love you all very much :)

Pregnant with Gracie!

Gracie first Easter. We went to Ohio to see Tommy's grandparents and I was pregnant with Thomas.

This was Thomas' first Easter and he didn't have a clue as to what was going on but his sister on the other hand. Gracie woke up to find a fun candy filled Easter basket Sunday morning and wanted nothing more all day except candy! We went to the flowering of the cross at church and then after church we went to my mom's for Easter dinner. After dinner we walked to my grandmothers a few house down and had a very enjoyable Easter egg hunt. It only took Gracie about 10 seconds to figure out there was candy hidden all over the yard. Needless to say we have way more candy at our house then anyone would ever need. Here are a couple of pictures to show you the family!
