In the works...

Thanks to Amanda Bishop and Lyndee George we got our family pictures done yesterday.... I was so glad to have them done. What a relief....The lady's were so awesome and I know the pics will turn out awesome. So be looking for them soon. I now have compiled my list of things to get done before Tuesday... I am a list making fool. It makes me remember everything I need to do, and reminds me of all the things I'd like to do. The kids seem like they know something is going to happen; we've talked it all over with Ryleigh and she understands some. She mostly gets the fact that she gets to go stay at grandparents houses. In other news, I am taking all the vitamins I can, washing my hands even when they aren't dirty and staying away from sickies, to stay well. I always get some kind of a cold when the season's change and I am determined to have it pass me by. One of the items on my list for Monday is to get the flu shot that I haven't made time for. I don't mind shots all that much and I give blood every eight weeks, so I should just do it right? Jeff went to church today and I think everyone will know after sacrament that I got released from my calling in Young Women's and I am going to teach RS every second Sunday... I am so sad to leave my girls, they will be missed and I have been so grateful for all the things they have done for our little family. Those girls have kept us in their prayers, fasted for us, brought us meals, they even have brought little gifts for our kids.... They are so amazing. I understand that someone else needs the blessing they offer. I am also excited by my new calling. I am not a very good teacher, hopefully I will just be an instrument for Heavenly Father... I heard this is a really good calling because as the teacher you learn so much from the studying you do to prepare... Well we will post more when we can...Brynn

I posted on your first post by accident. I have a 2 month old son with a disproportionate AV canal, HLHS. He is awaiting his Glenn scheduled early January if everything goes well. Good luck with your upcoming surgery. You are in our prayers. I know these are some of Heavenly Fathers special little spirits. We feel so blessed for every day we have with our children. All our love!

You guys are great! We are so glad that you took some time to come see us. We are so happy in a nervous and excited way that Alex is ready for this surgery now; as it has seemed a very long wait. We will be watching for your posts and praying our guts out for your family. And our daughter said that if you ever need a sitter for Ryleigh just let her know. A bit of a commute I know. Shamra had fun with her while we visited.

Take care,
The Hardman’s

Yes, I think we are going to be healthy after being full of greens. :) Thanks for your comment!

Also, I was really glad to read that things are moving in a positive direction with Alex. Your family will be in our prayers as you go through this next stage. We love you!

Brynn, you are such a strong mother, I know that at times its tough to see your child in such pain but always know that their are a ton of prayers being offered on Alex's behalf and the lord listens to every one of them! I know that we always say that if you need anything to let us know, really... even if its just an ear or a shoulder to cry on, were alway here for you and Jeff.
