Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

After playing in the mud puddles, Charles needed a bath. At the Green house, a baby's bathtime is indeed a family affair.

A weekend of pizzas,

 

flowers,

The younger Green girls got a little inventive cleaning the golf cart today...

The Green family gathered for a family picture this past Sunday.

 

After church, the Green and Fanning families met at our house, changed into comfy clothes, and enjoyed a delightful afternoon together.

 

I believe Grammy received a "workout" swinging the girls in the oak tree.

 

And this little fella was content just walking around and picking up an egg here and there.

 

Meanwhile the older children were running around trying to see who could fill their basket first.

 

Charles thought maybe next year he would be able to compete with the others,

 

but he seemed to enjoy the company of his aunts.

 

Grandpa and some of the grandchildren spent time swinging from vines in the woods. Grammy enjoyed watching all of the "entertaining" videos.

 

And even though there was a lot of activity, Charles patiently anticipated sweet, doggie kisses.

 

As everyone said goodbye, I caught Rosie in the dogwood tree savoring the aroma of the flowers: a perfect ending to a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon.

Today was FULL of Appalachian Mountain Music. We began at Railroad Days in Camak, GA before lunchtime.

 

The next stop was the Tour of Homes in Washington, GA.

 

Kenny took the little Greens on a stroll along downtown Washington while the older Greens entertained in the Town Square.

 

Our final destination was a fundraiser in Lincolnton, Ga for a local Bluegrass Festival with Little Roy Lewis and Lizzy Long.

 

Mr. Dave and the Green children performed wonderfully at the pig pickin' fundraiser event.

 

We enjoyed visitng with Little Roy Lewis and Lizzie Long and meeting one of the original Oak Ridge Boys.

 

But this picture really sums up how we all felt after such a LONG day...
