Haven't Posted In A Long Time...

I know it's been an awfully long time since I posted. I am sorry for those of you that have followed our blog for the past 4 years to have so many recent periods of silence. I wish I could say that things have changed for us, but they really haven't. Things are constantly busy with the kids. Connor, now 4 and 1/2 is still battling long periods of colds and infections that keep us down for a while. He continues to be fed by his feeding tube and his smile still lights up our lives! Mackenzie turned 3 in April and she just wants to experience the world in any way she can. She is a dramatic little girl who loves Tinkerbell and Fairies and she craves new adventures!!! Alex will be turning 2 in just a few short weeks. Whew...he's a fast one....always moving and running somewhere. He loves to climb and quite frequently I find him on the book shelves in the family room!!!

We have put the house up for sale by owner and we are praying that the Lord brings just the right buyer to enjoy our wonderful home. It's hard for me to think about selling this place as we have lived so much "life" here in the past 5 years. But, we need to be realistic and we have to get ourselves positioned closer to Randy's work. The commute to Boston is really a killer for him and for our family time together. We don't see him very much and it is really taking it's toll on all of us!

We will most likely move to the state of New Hampshire and rent for a while until we decide on just the right city for our family!!! We hope that things in the economy settle out sometime soon so that we will have a greater confidence to buy something out there! We again, are putting our faith and trust in God that He will work out all the tiny little details of this relocation. Our hearts remain heavy at the thought of leaving our precious families and friends here. So much so, that I cannot even speak of it right now.

The past weeks have hit us hard with pneumonia, sinus infections, coughs and colds. Alex is the last to get it and he's going on a week and a half of not feeling well. Continue to pray for us that better health would come to our home and we would be free from illnesses!

Thanks for continuing to support and pray and encourage us in all our endeavors. We are blessed and we are grateful to have so many wonderful family, friends and followers of the blog!

Some people have contacted my parents in efforts to find out how we are doing and have mentioned that they could not access the blog anymore. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I do hope that you will see this latest update and things will be revived. Maybe it went inactive because I hadn't posted for so long. We are also on Facebook if any of you would like to find us there. Just send a friend request and you can see more minute to minute updates to our lives.

Many blessings and our prayer is that you are all enjoying a wonderful summer!
Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

Thanks for updating us Lori! I don't know where you find the time with three busy children, a dog and a household to run. I am praying for you and Randy as you make some really big changes. I will miss you. But, then again, maybe we'll end up seeing more of one another on opposite coasts? Is that possible?

I attend church with Darlene Milliren and Maureen Robertson. I have been thinking about you, figuring the move had already happened. I will continue to pray for a smooth transition and for complete healing in your family!
