A Jam-Packed Holiday Weekend and a Prayer Request For My Niece

It's been a while since I've been on a computer! We left to go stay at Michaels parents house out of town last Friday and just drove home last night. Instead of going through a play by play of the whole thing, I'll list some of the highlights of our weekend/week so far. I know pictures were taken by other people of most of these things so I will need to hunt those down!

  1. Candace's baptism, luncheon, and then getting together that night to catch up with friends.
  2. An early birthday dinner for Jason and me. Michaels mom wanted to make us dinner and a cake before she left to Texas this month.
  3. Watched and cheered on Michael and his brothers as they ran a 5k race at the church. Pancake breakfast afterward.
  4. Buffalo Wild Wings
  5. Pool, BBQ, and fireworks at Michaels grandparents house.
  6. Lunch, Coffee Bean, and games with our friends Josh and Jenna and their son Greyson while they were in town. Jenna also gave me the headbands I won from her giveaway on her blog, which are super cute! She also made me an adorable diaper/wipe carrier and filled it for me!

The last few days haven't all been fun and games. My niece, Skylar, was born on July 2nd (only about a week early). Tiffany hadn't felt the baby move in a little while so she went in to make sure everything was okay. Skylars heartbeat wasn't right so they did an emergency C-Section. It turns out there was a blood clot in the umbilical cord. She has been in the NICU with an infection in her lungs among other things. At this point, Skylar is still fully dependent on her ventilator. We are obviously all very worried and praying for a quick recovery. She has her very own nurse to watch over her at all times. She's a beautiful little baby and we all love her so much already. Please keep her and her family in your prayers!
