Although her legs are still not "perfectly" straight (they are very close and SO much better than they used to be), the doctors agreed that her growth plates in her knees were healed and healthy so that being said, her legs will straighten and grow the right way as she grows taller. We were so happy!! Sadie celebrated the news with a fast run around the hallways of the hospital!! We couldn't keep up with her! She said she wanted to "throw them braces AWAY!" As I was putting her in the car, I started crying, and she said "NO MORE BRACES!!!!" and let out a loud scream! My sweet, sweet Sadie!!
I also have to brag on Laney Beth! During the summer/early fall, she drew and sold artwork to family and friends and saved up all that money and took it to Wal-Mart and bought new toys for patients at the hospital. I was sooooo proud of her! She delivered them right before Sadie's appointment and the lady in charge of donations told her how much they appreciated it and how much it would help little kids who were scared or hurting at the hospital...yes I cried during this too!It was an emotional, GREAT, awesome day!! Thank you God for your blessings!! We have so much to be thankful for!

We are hooking up with 'Show Us Your Life Friday' over at Kelly's Korner. This week is 'Show us your single boys' and we just so happen to know of one :)
Meet our brother, Dustin, a handsome, single, 23 year old, from Northwest Arkansas! What's not to like about Dustin?! He's one of the most amazing men we have ever known
(yes, we may be a bit partial but hey, he's pretty great!)
Dustin is a laid-back kind of guy, doesn't worry about too much. He's a family man. Fond of the outdoors, Dustin enjoys hunting and fishing and fourwheelin'. He also likes looking at the stars and the sky and he's got some pretty cool pictures to prove it!
He loooooves his nieces and nephew. He always buys them the coolest, most thoughtful gifts, shows them magic tricks, and teaches them pretty neat stuff. Just recently, he called his oldest niece to have her look at the big, cool clouds outside.....aww....so sweet! He's the best Uncle so we KNOW he'd make an awesome Daddy!
He's a very talented man. Music is a big part of his life. He is a self taught guitar player and has been apart of praise and worship for several years (he can sing too but he doesn't like people to know that...shhhh-ha!)
He's also very wise and very deep. The boy knows lots of stuff, whether it be Bible verses, music lyrics, TV quotes, etc, etc. He's just a smart guy!
He enjoys helping people, which is why he's currently going to school and got accepted to the EMT program (we are SO proud!) He should've been a doctor as much as he knows about medical stuff! He amazes us at how knowledgeable he is!
Last but most importantly, he has a wonderful heart for God. He is not the type of guy who just “dates around.” He doesn’t want to date a girl unless he can see himself marrying her one day. How sweet is that?? He is such a wonderful guy, and any girl would be so blessed to call him her own.

Laney's last day of Preschool was May 22nd and that night in the church where she attends Creative School, they held a program/graduation. They all sung songs from each month of the school year from September to May. Then they called each child up for a 'diploma' certificate and showed a slide show of pictures from the whole year! It was so neat! I think Brandon and I both teared up a little when they called her name! She is so big :( Kindergarten here she comes!! We are so very proud of you! You have learned so much this year and had so much fun meeting new friends! You loved your teacher, Ms Trisha too! Way to go Laney! We can't wait to see you excel in elementary!!
Sadie LOVES Ms. Trisha too!!
All of the kids singing!
Getting her diploma *sniff-sniff*
We are so proud of you Laney Beth!!

*You can sit up all by yourself now! You like to move your feet a lot though so you topple over sometimes! :)
We are so proud of you, Son! You make our family complete and we are so blessed to have you in our life! Mommy and Daddy talk about how blessed we are with the prettiest/cutest babies in the world! We love you, sweet boy!
