Spring Break 2009....One of a kind!

Well, here I am....back at work....after being off for 10 days straight!! I've really been dreading this day, but with alot of prayer -God has adjusted my attitude, and today has been really good so far!! So, anyways...let's rewind to 10 days ago, when Spring Break started for me. I had such big plans in mind, and just thought that the next 10 days would be nothing but fun in the sun! HA!!!!!!!!!...not quite!

Friday morning at 5:30 am, Abby sat straight up in the bed and with no warning, threw up everywhere! I just sat there in shock. #1, because it was so early...#2, because she had never thrown up before! So...we cleaned up the mess, got on the couch, and just started watching cartoons. To make a long story short....she threw up 2 more times, and the second time was BAD!....all over me, all over the couch, all over her, all over the floor....and what do I do? Yupp, I immediately started throwing up (but luckily I made it to the toilet!). So, we took a nap and woke up in much better spirits. I still ended up taking her to the doctor, but by then, she was 100% better! Thank God!! So...that was our first day of Spring Break! LOV-EL-Y!!

Saturday, we had a birthday party to go to at 11:30. Abby seemed to be over the 5-hour stomach bug she had, so we packed up and went to the party! I'm so glad we did, because Abby had a blast. She LOVES being around friends. Here are some pics from the party:

Sunday, was just a normal day of church and laziness!! :) We went to my parent's house for dinner, and me and Abby spent the night.

And then back down hill we went...Monday morning, I woke up at 3:00am, throwing up!! I threw up from 3:00-6:00, until I just had nothing left. Thank GOD for being at my mom's house, because she was able to take care of me AND Abby...and I was able to lay in the bed until 4:00 that afternoon!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes I think God allows us to get sick just so we can rest a little! So, I rolled out of bed at 4:00pm, and my mom took me and Abby home. I was feeling alot better, so we were going to go to revival at our church that night. GUESS AGAIN! I go to change Abby's diaper before we leave, and I find a rash like no other all over her legs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so bad, it looked like 3rd degree burns all over her :( Well, after having her pants off for a while, the rash just went away. So, I really thought nothing else about it.

Until the next day....we went for a playdate with some friends, and when we got back home, the rash had re-appeared! I immediately took her BACK to the doctor, and to make this long story short....the doctor pretty much told me that she had some kind of rare disease that would probably just keep getting worse and worse!?!?!???!? So, I left there in a tearful panic! We had so many people praying for our sweet baby, and we literally saw the prayers at work! Her rash disappeared once again, and has not come back! I still don't really know what it was, but I do know that God took care of it...and that's all that matters!

So.....Wednesday, I decide "we are doing something fun today!!!" ha!! So, we met some friends and took the AmTrak from Brookhaven to McComb! It was about a 20 minute ride, and once we got there we ate McDonalds and then Michael came and got us and brought us back to B'haven. It was such a fabulous day!! The weather was so pretty, everyone was in a good mood, and then we had a nice nap when it was all done. Here are some pics of the day:

Thursday, we had a day of rest! I figured that everyone needed to just rest and get 100% better, mentally and physically! haha :) So, we watched movies, played outside a little, and daddy brought us lunch. I was even able to get a little sun....WOOHOO!!

Friday, Michael dropped Abby off with my parents, he went flying, and I got to go to Hattiesburg-ALL BY MYSELF-and enjoyed a full day of shopping with my best friend :) It was fabulous. I headed back home around 5:00....6 tops, 5 dresses, and 2 pair of shoes later!!

And then this past weekend was nothing but good ol' family time! We worked outside, planted flowers, played, napped, cooked out with friends, enjoyed fellowship at church, and Michael and I were even able to enjoy some alone time! Here are some pics of me and Abby planting our flowers:
So....needless to say, this was a Spring Break like no other. No beach, no vacation, not much sun, not much "rest"....but plenty of family time, and I couldn't ask for anything more.

healthy & happy,

Tonya :)


  1. Besides being sick sounds like ya'll had a great time!

  2. Sorry y'all have been sick so much! That rash sounds weird...and that the pedi would tell you that after just seeing her with no biopsy or labs...just strange! Hope it stays gone! :-)
