A VERY belated HaPpY BiRtHdaY!

I am DEFINITELY not going to win the "super-duper" wife award for this one...I am a little (OK...a LOT!) late in posting about my sweet hubby's birthday. My tardiness ( and my lack of picture-taking) are absolutely NO reflection of my love for this AMAZING guy. We have just been a little busy in the Williams' household these past few weeks. :)
Karson's parents came to town to celebrate with us the weekend before his birthday. We had a fun day of watching movies, shopping at Home Depot, and lots of good food. These are the only pictures that I have to document our time, so you will just have to use your imagination for the rest! Karson was a little excited about his birthday TV.
We all enjoyed the finished product.:)

For his ACTUAL birthday, he said that he wanted to eat sushi (on the couch). That was a pretty easy request.
I also made him wear the "birthday pin" . For those of you who can't see what it says..."It's my birthday...wanna spank me?"
I had a Kindergartner give me a card that had this in it my first year of teaching. I'm not sure if the funniest part of it was that it wasn't even my birthday or that this sweet kid spoke NO English and kept taking the pin off of my desk and bringing it to me to wear...:)Needless to say, it has become a Williams' family must for birthdays...:)
I am so blessed to celebrate yet another birthday with the love of my life!

Mackenzie is doing GREAT!

I wanted to give you a quick update on Mackenzie. She is doing SO well. Today, the doctors were using words like MIRACULOUS and UNBELIEVABLE to describe how well she is doing. Her surgery was very successful and the doctors are very pleased with how she is doing. The first 72 hours after open heart surgery are the most critical and she is a little over halfway through that time period with absolutely NO complications. They said that she might get to go home in as early as a few weeks. Thank you so much for your prayers (and please continue to pray!) and please join me in giving thanks for this blessing.

Pray for Mackenzie

This is Alli, Sharon's friend. Sharon just called & asked that I post a request for prayers for sweet little Mackenzie. She is scheduled to have heart surgery this evening to try & repair the hole in her heart & also to create a fourth chamber since she was born with only three chambers. The family wasn't expecting this surgery to take place so soon, but it is a blessing that the doctors feel that she's strong enough for it. Please pray for God to guide the hands of the surgeons, nurses & staff that will be participating in this surgery. Pray that Mackenzie can be healed & that her mom, Amanda, & the rest of the family will have peace as they wait. I know many of you may have small group bible studies tonight, so please ask them to pray as well. Let's lift up this precious one to our Father!
