Please Pray

Asking for prayer for my best friend's baby Hannah. She was born a few days ago at 37 weeks and 4 days and has been in the NICU. She literally laughed her baby out and everything was great! It wasn't until a little while later when they took her to clean her up that she never returned. She has had all 3 of her other kids around this same time, and never had any issues. So this being her 4th this has been a complete shock to be going through something like this. So please say a prayer for baby Hannah that she feels better and gets to go home soon to be with her family. And pray for Alisha, as she literally is Super Mom,  feeling torn between staying with baby in NICU and being at home for her 3 other kids.

The Haps

And I'm back...sooner than later. So I officially ended my hiatas from Instagram after not looking at it for over 3 weeks. I have to say, I don't miss it anymore. It was REALLY hard at first, but now I don't even want to go back. I'm not saying I never will go back, nor do I have anything against IG or anyone who is on it. I don't consider myself "cooler" cause I'm not into anymore either. It is however forcing me to blog a bit more cause I want to remember stuff. :) This isn't the best pic but I tried capturing a moment of our last Friday night. It was just a causal Friday BBQ hang out in the culdesac, with 32 people...27 of which we fed. haha I think we counted almost 17 kids. What could have been totally chaotic, ended up being such a fun night! Everyone pitched in and brought a little something. The kids swam, played in the backyard, rode bikes and played kickball out front. The best part was that eveyone lives in the neighborhood. So I just felt blessed for the neighborhood that we live in, the neighbors that we have, and the house we have to be able to do something like this.
** Love that the girls are in to skateboarding right now**
 **Headed to Ventura this past Saturday and it was HOT!!!**

 **And the reason we headed to Ventura was to meet our newest family member!!! Little Lennon June was born on August 28th**
 ** She is the sweetest baby girl I have ever seen!!**
 **Wish we lived even closer, cause I can't get enough of her**
 **This girl is smarter than I give her credit for ;)**
 **Learning to love this girl every day. SO different from her big sis...which I love because they are both so special in their own ways. But what worked with Taylor def has not been working with Dev, so she is strechting and growing me every day as a parent. I am determined to figure this girl out.**

 ** All the cousins on the Nichols side**

 ** This little guy sure is coming in to his own. What a joy it has been having this guy added to our family. He is SO happy and easy long as he gets what he wants. If he doesn't, plug your ears! **
