When It Rains....It Pours

Our blog usually consists of fun times and not too much beyond what Addison and the pregnancy are up to, but theses past few weeks have been full of events. As always, it seems like when it rains, it pours. I have so much to blog about. I guess if I were better at updating the blog, I wouldn't have so much at one time.

So sorry for the mass post, but I here it goes.....

10 Year High School Reunion
Since I was given the opportunity to serve as class president our senior year, the responsibility of getting high school reunions falls on my shoulders. Well, our 10 year reunion is this fall. With the pregnancy I had kind of put it on the back burner, but a classmate sent me a message on Facebook asking me the details. Once others saw the post, the messages just started flowing. I knew then that I had to get it together. Since I've started working on it deligently, I have had the fortune of a having a fellow classmate assist with a lot (thanks Amy). So the location/time/food, etc. are set and now we just wait. It's set for October 22-23 (one of the last weekends I can travel). I don't know how excited I am to be 34 weeks pregnant and going to my HS reunion. I guess I have a good excuse to be fat. lol

Baby #2 Name Reveal
Once again, Jordan and I had a hard time coming up with a girl's name. We threw names out there on a daily basis and couldn't settle on one. Well, we finally agreed. She shall be called LANDRY BELLE GRIFFIN. I love the name!!!

Papa Howell
My grandpa (Dad's Dad) went to ER on Wednesday afternoon because he was having slurred speech and walking around in circles. They ran some preliminary tests in Texarkana and decided that he could have a had a mini stroke. My grandparents decided at that time to get him transferred to Presbyterian Dallas, since all of his doctors are here in Dallas. We, as a family have much more faith in the doctors in Dallas (sorry Texarkana). Since he got here Thursday morning they have run more tests are him and confirmed a mini stroke and possibly a small hole in his heart. They will do more tests, so I will keep you updated on his status.

Miss Maegan
One of the sweetest young ladies I know was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. Maegan is the girlfriend of one of my first cousins, Ryan. Ryan and I have always been very close since he's an only child and I work for his family. Maegan is a beautiful, sweet, kind, courageous 25 year old that has been diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. She has just begun this journey and is having a lot of tests run to figure out what is best for her and to make sure we beat this thing called cancer. I have added her blog of her journey on the side of my blog, so check it out. Please add her to your prayer list.

I have even more on my mind, but I will do my very blessed to get it out next week and it occurs. To all who read this blog, remember to enjoy life and bless those around you. God is good and he is our light throughout our days.
