Trip to Hartselle

Thought I should share a few pictures from our trip to Hartselle last week. I LOVED IT! Allyson, Caleb, Sawyer, Eli and I headed North last Monday. Walker and Wes were home working. Our backseat passengers did FANTASTIC! Eli and Caleb slept the whole way there and back, and Sawyer was content to watch Elmo, Barney, Bob The Builder, and "the kids singing." Allyson was fun company in the car! So much so...we took about a 2 hour detour on the way home. OH WeLL...WHAT CAN YOU DO?? I must say that I do like that girl!!! We stayed at my parents' house almost the whole time we were there. We made a quick run to a consignment shop in Hartselle and to Katie's once, but other than that...we were homebound. Thankfully, we had LOTS of visitors come by to meet our new little fellas! I enjoyed the trip immensely!

Suzanne came by too. She gave us her expertise on swaddling and shushing babies. Unfortunately, I took that pic with Al's camera, and sadly, she returned home to find out her computer has crashed. BUMMER!

Walker Williams

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about several of your husbands...AREN'T WE BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH GOOD ONES?!?!!! I mean....I know y'all all think you have the best.
I think I do too! So....Since Kristen "tagged" me, here it goes!
This was taken while were dating with our niece, Grace. She's almost 6 now.
I took this when we went to Clayton and he helped pick cotton one year.

1.What is his name? Walker Andrews Williams

2. Who eats more? Walker-but I keep up pretty well! :)

3. Who said, "I love you" first? Walker

4. Who is taller? He is by about 2 inches-unless I have on my heels :)

6. Who is more sensitive? Oh my! I definitely am!!

7. Who does the laundry? I DO A LOT of it, but he definitely does his share too.

8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Walker does

9. Who pays the bills? Walker makes the money, and I write the checks

10. Who cooks more? ummmm....probably Walker. I do the everyday stuff (spaghetti, tacos, pork chops), but he grills A LOT and cooks the majority of what we eat on the weekend. He actually cooked salt fish this morning for breakfast. Anyone ever tried it? It was my first try, and I have to say, I'm not a fan. He REALLY enjoyed it though! I wouldn't have known how to start cooking salt fish. :) (I do have a very SOUTHERN, old-school husband that likes that kind of thing! Therefore, he cooks!)

11. Who is more stubborn? I hate to admit it, but I'm sure it's me!

12. Who is the first to admit they are wrong? Walker

13. Who has more siblings? We're tied with two a piece

14. Who wears the pants in the relationship? Walker

15. What do you like to do together? anything! We like to play outside a lot! A good day for us is when he comes home, and we can throw the frisbee or softball or football in the backyard before we start cooking supper. We like to go out to eat, watch reality tv and play with our boys.

16. Who eats more sweets? Me! BUT Walker enjoys them just about as much as me! :)

17. Guilty Pleasures? Walker-checking out Alabama football recruits online, turkey hunting
Me-Facebook and blogging (of course)

18. How did you meet? Walker and I had Earth Science together my sophomore year at Auburn and he had all the old tests, so we knew each other, BUT we reunited at the Blue Room in Auburn when 17th Floor was playing. He asked me out, and "the rest is history..."

19. Who asked whom out first? Walker

20. Who kissed who first? Walker did, but to hear him tell it, I did! :)

21. Who proposed? Walker did. We went out to eat and he kept going out to the truck to make sure no one had stolen the ring while we ate...I thought his stomach was upset. ;) He proposed while we were out looking at Christmas lights later that night.

22. His best features and qualities? He notices things most people don't notice. He's really good hearted. He's a strong Christian. He's a hands-on daddy! He makes me laugh! AND initially...I noticed what good arms he had!

23. Tag you’re it. Who do you tag? Allyson, Darby, Sarah

Happy Tuesday!

My little life is SO SIMPLE, but it sure is good. Poor Sawyer has been kind of sick the last couple of days. His eyes have been COMPLETELY matted shut the past two mornings, and he looked pitiful! I know he probably thought he was blind this morning when he couldn't open either eye. We went to Dr. Bang yesterday and the ENT, Dr. McQueen, today to see about him. My "jewel of a husband" (as Mrs. Cathy Jacobs correctly called him) took off of work to go with me to BOTH doctors appointments in the past 2 days. I really don't take this for granted! I appreciate Walker wanting to go with me and his job that allows him time off, because it sure makes it a lot easier and a lot more fun when Daddy gets to go! :) Thanks, Walker! Anyway...I think we're slowly getting better! It was pretty warm in the sunshine today, so we took advantage of what may be our last pretty day for a while and played outside.
Thought I'd share a few pictures from our day.

Sawyer has to stop ALL along on his ride to pick up leaves, rocks and sticks. It makes for a VERY long trip down the street. He's so funny because he notices EVERYTHING! This is definitely not a trait he gets from his mama.

Here's my sweet second child laying out in the front yard while his ol' mama walks down the street with his brother.

Prayer Request

My heart is hurting right now for one of my very favorite people. My really good friend from Andalusia, Beth Colvin, and her sweet husband, John, got bad news last week that John has testicular cancer. They're going to a doctor in Dothan tomorrow for a second opinion and for more results. I love this family dearly, and I know that they would really appreciate you taking time to pray for them. Beth has an incredible faith, and I know she and John are both firm believers that prayer works. Their specific prayer requests right now are:
1. Please PRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2. Pray that God is merciful and will HEAL John completely.
3. Pray that the doctors are compassionate and truly care.
4. Pray that we will not be overwhelmed by all the information and God will give us wisdom to make the right decisions.
5. Pray for us to have strength and peace that passes all understanding!!! Philippians 4:7
This is Beth and her son (Sawyer's best buddy) with Eli in the hospital when they and John came to visit after Eli was born.
This is John with John Luke.
Thanks for praying! If you read her blog (you can tell how precious she is)and see the latest updates.
