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.

Not quite sure about the casting procedure...

 

Things are going well...

 

And the color pink just makes everything better...

Today Autumn Faith visited the dentist for her first checkup,

 

and Benjamin caught a "whopper" catfish.

Anna Rose caught her first fish on a rod and reel this past Saturday.

 

Sunday after our church fellowship meal, Charles helped his Mommy open shower gifts for baby James.

 

James slept like a baby through all the excitement.

 

And after a second series of X-rays, we learned Julieann's hand is fractured in two locations. She is in a temporary half-cast until the visit to the orthopedic surgeon for a full cast.

Poor Julieann fell and injured her hand this past weekend,

 

but new earrings and a frappuccino makes everything all better...

Julieann likes to use one of the girls' " Indian cooking pot" to collect vegetables from the garden.

 

She gathered lots of tomatoes and peppers.

 

The rest of the family worked together to pick beans,

 

and they picked a basketful!

"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born. It's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, music, etc...

 

It's being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola...and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." ---Unknown

We had an enjoyable evening visiting with Scott Crutchfield and his family from Peru. Learning about their language, food, and culture was educational for us all.

This evening we celebrated Independence Day with good food and fellowship.

 

Hot dogs, Carolyn's famous coleslaw, baked beans, delicious desserts, homemade ice-cream, and

 

of course Grace's delicious sugar cookies were a great picnic combination.

 

James enjoyed snuggling his Mama before the fireworks show.

 

The homemade ice-cream crew churned vanilla, chocolate, and peach ice-cream for a refreshing treat.

 

After dinner, everyone enjoyed playing badmitton,

 

fishing (Griffin caught a nice-sized catfish),

 

and listening to some good, ol' fashioned music.

 

After the beautiful fireworks display, sparklers were the next activity for the evening. We all enjoyed watching Charles observe the sights and sounds of the festive holiday...

Our little Pookie Bear... Grace did a wonderful job sewing this mask for the little Greens to use during dress-up time.

 

And everyone looks forward to making and decorating our delicious 4th of July star cookies.

 

Everyone seems to have his or her...

 

unique design.

 

Even the youngest Green child takes the job seriously.
