friends and family

came to visit at the hospital, I did not get pics of everyone but here are some who i DID get.
My Neice Brittany got there and have to have some baby holding time, she LOVES babies.
 and is not really good at sharing in holding time but it's all good we are glad she got to come visit
 then the jackson's came.  they are friends from way back and live pretty close to us. Faith (wearing glasses) is just 10 years old.  and has grown over a foot since I saw her last. STOP IT FAITH you look GROWN! Her older sister is my other daughter, Shaniquia and Martha were best friends when they were 14, 15, 16 years old but when their mom was sent off to war and the girls had to leave and stay far away with family their friendship took a hit, they love each other dearly but their lives took such different paths. I love that child she is the sweetest most loving girl ever made.  Their Momma Juanita has been a wonderful friend and has helped us so many times over the years. I hate that our lives and time frames dont cross very often. She is one of the most POWERFUL women I have ever met and I love her to peices and wish for her strenght and ability to communicate.
 Aren't they just Beautiful women :)
 this is a smaller version of her momma... I really must dig out some baby pics of Martha.  We tried on the newborn outfits martha had packed and they were way too big... so Schlena (our lifesaver) stopped and picked up some premie clothing which Fit PERFECTLY :0)
 Miss snuggle bunny was warm and comfy and even with 10 LOUD people in the room never woke up until I changed her diaper.  then while Erin tried to get her to eat she conked back out.
 Juanita is "splainin" things to Halo
 Aunt Carol ... oops GREAT AUNT Carol and cousin Erin came but somehow  I did not get a Pic of Erin... shes another neice who is great with babies ...came to visit too... :)
Marthas Friend from work came, and her best friend becca came and Kerrie and Savannah came as Lori, Schlena, Erin, and I were leaving. I dont think I am missing anyone but, wont totally swear that I am not either.
Since I got home last night I have sneezed 4000 times each worse than the one before and I resorted to Niquil before I went to bed last night. I woke up this morning with no less than what feels like 500 gallons of snot impacted inside my head, even the neti pot (medi bottle) could not break through my sinus mess...
It never fails if I am at the hospital for anything My sinus' go nuts.
yesterday every 3 hours and 40 minutes I knew it was about time for more sinus meds as my nose would start and make me aware that it was time...
Today I am not going to go to the hospital, you know my house has been neglected  when I finally got home and my HUSBAND has attempted to wash dishes... :) the cups glasses and plates were clean THANK YOU HONEY.
anyway unless things change Martha and the baby are supposed to go home tomorrow, Martha got up and after her shower was wandering the hospital and hunting FOOD ... as we left we saw her dr and she was ordering food. anyway Hope you all have a great day.
and Happy New years EVE I pray for A PEACEFUL new Year .  ok semi peaceful??? a little peace? ok I give... healthy new year.

What a sweet beautiful little girl! You have a granddaughter, and your life will never be the same--you have a boy and a girl!

I hope your sinuses are better now, and wish you a peaceful happy New Year! May God bless you and your family.

She is absolutely precious. Lots of visitors and activity plus the sinuses...I hope you feel better soon!

Congratulations, Happy New Year and just everything rolled into one. David was this small and he didn't fit into anything either LOL

Great to see MJ up and around!
