What a week

We have had quite a week here at our house. It is overwhelming actually. If you have been keeping up with Teddy's Story you know that it has been somewhat of a roller coaster although we are pleased with the direction it is heading. He has a tough road ahead of him and Jared is headed out west to be with them this week. Jared also had a root canal yesterday and we continue to just deal with the average and not-so-average stresses and strains of life. Yesterday was dark and gloomy much like most Michigan winter days and we were feeling the weight of the week behind and the week ahead. Needless to say our children always lighten the mood and they did yesterday.

Jared and I both love music and love having it on in our home. We have a play list that is all praise and worship and God uses it to lift our spirits on a regular basis and He has not failed us in this most recent crisis. Last night however I had it on after dinner and Jared was on the phone with family when I told Eli to come here so I could wash his hands. He responded with these words: "hands up, playin' my song.....(couldn't understand the rest)". I started cracking up when I realized that he was singing "Party in the USA". Mommy laughed until she cried. He has heard this song 3 times at the most and he decided to bust it out right when Mommy needed a laugh. I of course headed right to the computer and we had a little Miley dance party in the kitchen. Seriously, it is hard to stay in any kind of funk in this house. So if you are having a bad day "yeah, yeah, yeah, Party in the USA" it may just help! :)

I am going to put a pic in the side bar that you can click on to continue to be updated on Teddy. Thanks again for all the prayers. They now have a plan for how they will be treating him and it is written in detail on the caring bridge site.

I will continue to pray for him. Your boys are too cute. There is no way that you could stay sad with one of them singing that!
