Christmas in July, oh no, it is August!

14 Aug

Where does time fly when you are having fun! Life marches on and I am not doing the greatest job at blogging. I was very inspired today when I watched a blogger on a cooking show today, she managed to keep up easily enough! Oh well, I will try again and not be such a sluggish blogger…. So many fun things and events have happened since we last chatted but I will try to share them with you. In February the team went to Myanmar and they loved every minute of it. Jeremy and Kristen worked in an orphanage and loved the kids. Jeremy also got to preach once along with the other team members, Jack and my hubby. Of course, I had a blast with August for 10 days and we had no problems at all. He acted very cold towards his mom and dad when they came back but that soon passed. Here are some pictures from our great summer so far!

Firstly, one of the greatest events…… we are going to be grandparents again!! Yippeeeeeee  Plus Jeremy and Kristen purchased their first home. So happy and blessed.

Congratulations Jeremy, Kristen and August.

I can’t believe that I have not posted on here regarding the birth of my grandson yet! What an exciting time it was and has been! Let me introduce August Michael Sistrunk to you. He was born October 4th,           weighing 7.7 lbs and 19 inches long!


Kristen did such a great job in the hospital and the delivery went really well. Being Nana and Papa Johnson has been a joy and I know now what everyone alway meant by saying that there is nothing like it. Aunty Sarah and uncle Daniel are thrilled to and there is defiantly not a shortage of love to go around!

And our family grows…

18 Feb

I was really trying to write in this blog at least once a week and so far I have failed miserably, now hoping to change that as I try again. No excuses to make, so let’s just move on. The year has started out with tons of stuff going on but at least they are things that I enjoy and cherish doing. I am so excited to share the great news regarding our new grand-baby that is on the way! Congratulations to Jeremy and Kristen, my middle child, who will be having their first child in October this year.  Words cannot explain the joy and excitement that I felt as we watched the little one’s heart beating at the doctors office this week.

Our newest addition to the family!

Another great milestone in my life is the fact that I have been at the gym working out which I thought I would never do.  The word choose, which I felt was my word for the year, has been interesting for me. One of the areas of choice has been in the area of my well-being. I started at the gym, working out 5-6 days a week and really did not believe that I would do it. Notice I did not say could not but would not, as I really dislike gyms, especially how they smell!  Well, I have been very consistent and realized that it really is my choice if I do this or not. I know that this is a very important choice to stick to and hope to stay faithful with this choice.  I must admit that going has been becoming easier and I think I am starting to enjoy the torture just a little!  Let me know if you have started doing anything new this year which you thought you would never do or could not do. I would also love to hear about any new exciting events that have happend or going to happen this year for you.
