Hey everyone, sorry for the long delay in updating Jocelyn’s Journal. We have been patiently waiting for spring to come so we can get outside and visit family and friends. Jocelyn has been doing good, she is getting smarter by the minute. She amazes us everyday with something new she says (funny girl). She has had a few little colds but by the Grace of God nothing serious. The Lord has truly blessed us with good health and protection for her well being. Her “little” brother Trey is doing great! He is an answered prayer and such a blessing to our family. Jocelyn loves her “baby brother”, as she calls him. We look forward to getting out more once the cold/flu season is behind us. Please pray for continued good health for Jocelyn and as always for the cure that will bring SMA to its long overdue end! God Bless each of you, we love you all!
Merry Christmas everyone! We pray that everyone remembers what Christmas truly is…the day God blessed us all with the gift of Jesus Christ! Praise the Lord for the greatest gift EVER given! Its winter time here in NC, so we are in the midst of our hibernation. The kids are doing great, each day is definitely an adventure. Jocelyn continues to amaze us all and is the best big sister a little brother could ever ask for. We have updated the photo gallery with some of the things we have been doing this past fall. You can see our “bubba” growing bigger and bigger by the day. He will definitely be Jocelyn’s bodyguard! We hope you all enjoying the season, thank you for the continued prayers and as always may God Bless and keep you! Christmas pictures to come…
Hope everyone is doing well! We are enjoying the nice weather and finally getting out of the house. Just wanted to let you know that I have finally added some new pictures. And am still in the process of adding more so here they are. I know it has been forever. Better late then never huh!
Jocelyn is doing well. She is enjoying spending time with some of her friends and being able to get out for walks. We hope to get to the beach and get in the pool here soon. It is definitely hot enough.
Wow! It’s been a while. So I am going to stop apologizing and just let it be a surprise when I finally get to update. I don’t seem to make it to the computer much. Things have been good around here we are finally getting out and about. We went up to DE for a wonderful week with family and friends back in April. We are so proud of Uncle Colin as we were able to be a part of his graduation from the police academy. And a HUGE THANK YOU to all that made this years benefit possible. It was a great success. It was great to see so many family and friends. We love you all and again thank you sooooo much!
Jocelyn had a great birthday! Hard to believe she is already 3. Such an amazing little girl we are so very proud of her. Instead of a big cookout this year we decided to take her to the zoo with some friends. She had a good time. I think her favorites for the day were the baboons that kept trying to climb the window and wrestle and the elephants who were playing in the water. Jocelyn was also able to make cupcakes for here friends and she did a wonderful job. They were delicious.
Both Jocelyn’s laptop and our desktop crashed in the same week a while ago so maybe I could partially blame that for the delay but if I can ever figure out how to get this computer to allow me to log in and upload some new pictures I would be happy to share the cute pictures pictures of Jocelyn helping us to plant flowers, pick strawberries and of course hanging out with her puppies. I will put them up as soon as I can.
Hope to update more often sorry for the delay. Thank you so much for checking in on us. We love you!
O.k. Here I am. All is o.k. I have no good excuse for such a delay in update. I can only say I have been slacking a bit. And I am sorry! But hey you will have lots to look at now.
As for us……. We have been making the best of our hibernation.
Christmas was good. We enjoyed the time with our family and friends. We have been able to spend time with some really great friends, which has be lots of fun. Shane has had to travel a bit out of town here lately but we have been doing well. Jocelyn and I know that we have great friends and neighbor’s near by if we needed them in an emergency but so far saying our prayers and knowing we have Dr. Jesus here with us has gotten us through the days and nights without him. We are always excited to see him return safely to us. Jocelyn is always smiling ear to ear when you ask her “Who’s that?”
Our newest fun has been the recent snow. We were able to take Jocelyn sledding. We had so much fun. She had a blast. If you would stop she would give you her version of “again”. You will have to take a look at the pictures because when I tell you how we did it some of you are gonna say “You did what” (Grandma’s) But really we were careful and hey she liked it. Yes we used a swimming pool full of lots of warm blankets and tied it to the back of the four wheeler. I guess that is what happens when you cooped up in the house for so long. Your brain starts spinning for ideas to get out. Just two more months and we should be blessed with some more warm weather.
I will try to be better about the updates, we just don’t have much new going on this time of the year.
Thanks for checking in.
