Happy 40th Birthday Bulldog!!!

There is so much to share, but I have two minutes on the computer!! In a few days I will share about Kali's funeral....all I can say is how proud I am of sweet Leah. She stood up bravely and shared the most amazing letter to her best friend. With her permission, I might post it later. Just keep praying for my sis.

So, this morning we woke up and drove to Tulsa to celebrate John Jr. (aka Bulldog) and his 40th Birthday. We have partied hard at the "Incredible Pizza Co"....we watched John Jr. play 3 hours of ski ball....seriously....3 hours without stopping for a breath. He had a blast! Then, he got his wish of getting to order a full lobster at Red Lobster. I just beat him in Connect Four (forgot to mention that he was playing me half-asleep). We will post pictures tomorrow.

Thank you Lord for our brother Bulldog!! Thank you for his life....for the way he lives wholeheartedly for you. Thanks for saving his life at Christmas....we love him so much. He is going to be the BEST uncle to Eliana!! He keeps begging us to record his voice talking to Eliana, so that she will recognize who he is. That is tomorrow's project.

Keep praying for us....we are pretty much exhausted emotionally and physically right now. WE LOVE YOU ALL.....thanks for being so excited with us about the birth lady interview.

Happy birthday, Bulldog! I had no idea you were headed to Tulsa. If you ever make it to our area (Northwest Arkansas) just give me a shout!
PS Been thinking about you and the mixed emotions you must be dealing with concerning Kali and then the birthlady interview...a roller coaster ride of emotions!

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY BULLDOG!! I honestly cannot think of a better party than three hours of skee ball and pizza!!! What a blast!

I am praying that lots of good things start coming your way! I am sure that Leah was amazing at the memorial service, I cannot imagine how difficult that was for her, but know she found her strength in the loving support you and your family have surrounded her with.
