Update on our Maggie girl

As I sit here to write this at 10:20, Maggie is sitting right next to me watching Doc McStuffins.  She isn't sleepy at all... It's way past her bedtime, but to be honest I'm just glad she is feeling better!! 
We checked Maggie in at 7:30 this morning and went back around 7:45.  I am so thankful she had an early time.  I was worried she would want to eat or drink something.  She did ask for some breakfast once when she first woke up, but that was it.  

She did so great while talking to the nurses and doctors.  She had to take her "Punzel" blanket and new Sleeping Beauty baby with her.  She didn't even cry when they took her away from me.  I almost lost it, but she did great.  
Dr. Seth said she did really good during the whole procedure.  They were able to fill all the cavities, but they did have to put one "Sleeping Beauty crown" on her back tooth.  I really, really hate that she had to go through this, but I'm so thankful for such great doctors and nurses to take care of her.  
We got to go back as soon as she started to wake up.  Poor baby!  She had a breathing tube in her nose and her little mouth was all swollen.  She just wanted me to hold her.... I love that part.  (I didn't like her hurting... just the snuggling part.)

My sweet baby!  She is so precious to us!  I am so blessed by this sweet little girl.  I was reminded today by a sweet friend that God gave Maggie to me for a reason.  I am just humbled and blessed by her.  We stayed in recovery until she woke up a little more.  I was so glad to be taking her home around 10:00.  I think she was glad to be going home, too.  We snuggled on the couch for a while until she finally wanted something to eat. 
She wanted a Blue Bell Cotton Candy Popsicle and wanted to watch Cinderella... so that is what we did.  We watched tv all day and snuggled.  I loved every minute of it.  She got a great surprise this afternoon when, "My Logan" brought her a princess balloon.  She was so excited!  
She really started to act like herself after bath tonight.  I think she is feeling 100% better.  I still have to watch what she eats for the next 2 days, but other than that she is good to go.  

Thank you so much for all of you who have prayed for Maggie today!!!  I am so thankful that she is okay and will be okay.  There are so many kids who have gone through so much more or are going through so much more.  God is good, ALL of the time.  Thank you, Lord for our sweet Maggie!  We love her so much!!

Worst Mom award goes to...

That would be me!  
I feel so so bad for our sweet Maggie Moe!  Tomorrow is the big day.  She is going in and having dental surgery.  She has 8... yes eight cavities.  Poor baby!!  
She has been the hardest one to get to brush her teeth!  About 4 months ago she finally started letting me brush, of course it's to late now.  The dentist said she does not have any enamel on her teeth.  He then asked me a million questions about if she was born a premie or if I had a hard pregnancy.  I don't know... I kind of think he was just being nice and didn't want to totally blame me.  
Here she is at her pre-op appointment on Thursday.  
Please pray for our sweet girl tomorrow morning!  We go in at 7:30am.

Here is her last dentist appointment post.

What a week! 
Ben has been sooo extremely busy at work.  It's been crazy, to say the least! 
So here's a peek at last 2 weeks...

Go Tar Heels!!! 

Crazy hair night at Awana!  Love my little Sparkie! 

Gymnastics Monday!

Lots of really hot, WINDY runs... why is it so hot already!  
Praying we get some nice spring weather before the heat wave of summer is here! 
Cotton Candy Popsicles after school

Let's race!!! 

my favorite snack right now... red bell peppers with chobani ranch dip.  (just a little ranch packet into the yogurt and stir...the best!)

Can't believe he is 1!?!?  Where does the time go???  We love you, Drew! 

More running, but in pants this time... it's either super hot or really cold... but it's always WINDY! 

More Saturday morning baseball! Go Hunter!!!
Maggie could hardly wait to see Pinkalicious last Sunday!  She had such a great time.  Hunter liked it too. 

After the show we played a little baseball in the backyard.  Maggie was excited to bat! 

A little jump time before gymnastics on Monday! 


Hunter gives Archer some baseball coaching! 

Archer about to pitch to Hunter. 
It was so funny!  Hunter was really trying to teach Archer the game.  So sweet!!! 

My sweet sleeping babies! 

We are loving life over at the Jennings house! 
We'll be back at the ball park on Saturday!  We love our Dixie Little League!

Go Tar Heels!!!

It's baseball season!!!  
Okay.. okay!  It's been baseball season for a while!  I can't believe this will be Hunter's 4th game on Saturday! I am so behind on my blogging!  Anyway... here a few pictures from the last game. 

I love this boy sooo much!!  He is LOVING baseball!  
Loving it so much, when I asked him today what his favorite sport was he said baseball and football!  

At bat on Saturday!  Go Hunter!!! 

Sorry this pic is so far away, but yes this is Hunter running into home... backwards!  I don't know why he did that??!? :)

Playing short stop last week! 

Sorry these pictures aren't the best!  It's hard to get good pictures with Maggie and Archer.  I'll bring the good camera and try to do better this week. 

Here is Hunter at bat at his game 2 weeks ago. :)

Hunter at bat last Saturday!  Go Hunter! :)

Horton Hears a Who

So I have been meaning to blog about last Thursday's event Hunter and Maggie were invited to be apart of... so here it goes! 

Our awesome city of Abilene has just added 6 new Dr. Seuss statues down town and Maggie and Hunter were asked to unveil one!  It was such a neat evening.   It was Art Walk so there was a bunch of people enjoying downtown last Thursday.  We were down by the train depot with the Cooper drum line and the Mayor.  The band would march around to all the different Cat in the Hat statues and then give a drum roll for the person or kids to unveil the newest statue.  Maggie and Hunter were asked to unveil the 'Horton Hears a Who' statue!  They had so much fun!  Here are some pictures of the even along with a very short video of the unveiling. 

We got there a little early and had nothing to do... so Maggie and Daddy did a little stunting! :)

Here's the video! :) 

They did such a good job!  They had to wait until someone read a piece of the story before the pulled off the cover.  I could hear people saying how Maggie looked like a who with her pigtails. :) 

Archer likes Green Eggs and Ham!  He likes them, Sam I am!  
He loved going up and touching all the statues. 

One last picture of our Who! 

Over all we had a great evening!  If you live in Abilene, you should go check it out!  We love Dr. Seuss and we love Abilene!
