Random Snapshots

Liam decided to accessorize himself a couple days this week...
Gotta love the clip on look with a football t-shirt!

Braeden came home Wednesday and boy were we happy to see this smiling face!

Had some ups and downs with meds and medicaid refusing to cover one,
so were without one of his two new ones for a couple days.
Back on track now and praying things even out.
As of right now I really don't see much difference
in his activity and impulsivity on the meds than I did off,
plus he still seems angry at times for no real reason. :(

Olivia had her year end dance recital last night and this afternoon.
This is a HUGE production, sold out each day (there are also performances
on Friday night and Saturday afternoon that she wasn't involved in),
with much rehearsal time and prep.

The boys had a sitter last night (and Braeden made it through well)
and they came with me to see the show today.

We made it through the first act (an hour and a half!),
and saw Olivia's first dance - a tap number to Polar Express,
and had a little pop at intermission.

They only had Pe*psi or Diet Pe*psi, so Liam thought he was hot stuff
since mom doesn't usually allow him to have that stuff! :)

We then watched the first two dances in Act II since Olivia's was the second.
This dance was a jazz number to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
They were both SO good and Olivia did EXCELLENT!!!
Unfortunately I couldn't take pics or record anything, so no costume shots! :(

A friend just posted this on Face*book so I snagged it! :)

I took the boys out after that dance since there was still quite a bit left
and Braeden had done well but was hanging by a thread. :)
So we hung out in the hall with the iPad.

Just to give this girly a HUGE hug and congratulations!
We are so proud of her!

Which song from Polar Express? That sounds fun. Our recital is Friday. Jaz taps to Zorba, a Greek wedding dance and jazz to Little Birds. Jessica does tumbling to Kung Fu fighting. It's a major big deal here too but thankfully only one night.

Here's the song... I think it's just called The Polar Express

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
