Here are a few pictures outside at my house. I can hear the ice falling right now.
3. How did you meet your husband?
I met my husband though a mutual friend. I am so glad she introduced us. She had no idea that I would be interested in him. I have actually reconnected with her through..you guessed it FaceBook! We started talking and the rest is history. We have been together for almost 16 years. We started dating when I was 20 years old! I knew in the first month that I wanted to marry him but we waited 3 years to get married. It was well worth it.
4. What top 5 blessings has God given you in your life?
My 3 beautiful children
My families health
My relationship with my family
My wonderful friendships.
5. Who is your hero?
Dawn honored me with this little award. Thanks Dawn!
As you know, there are rules with these awards. That's ok with me. I need some guidelines to get me through these things.
I'm supposed to tell you 7 things about myself. Some of you may already know these things but, that's ok just humor me. lol!
My middle name is Paige. When I was a kid I wished people would call me that instead of Michelle because I knew so many people named Michelle.
I am a night owl. I could stay up late every night. I hate getting up in the morning.
I love scary movies. Actually I love to watch movies period! Tom hates scary movies so he has had to learn to watch them. He loves Sci-Fi so we have learned to watch both together.
I am double jointed and so are all three of my children actually Tom is too! Pretty crazy. Tom and I are also both left handed which makes it really nice at our house.
I would prefer a beer over a mixed drink. I am adding this one because Dawn commented on how cool it looks to drink a beer! lol She really doesn't like beer. I probably couldn't pay her to drink one.
I wish I had an accent..I mean like I was from Australia or something. Really how cool would that be?? I think about living in another country. I wouldn't mind it at all. I think it would be such an adventure. I can't wait till my kids are older and we can travel.
Speaking of George Clooney earlier in my post. My parent are good friends with George's Aunt and Uncle. They live right here in Owasso.
Oh...one more thing. I am addicted to Facebook!
Finally take this little quiz and see how addicted to blogging you are! Take the test if you dare!!

Now back on for the good news. We don't have to go back to OK City for 18 months!! We are so grateful for all the wonderful doctors and nurses that we worked with. Such an amazing group of people.
The second part to this story is that about a year ago, Ty wasn't walking. What?? You say. I know it is hard to believe as active as he is now, but it was very strange for any of you who know us. You will remember he walked on his knees everywhere. It was quite strange to watch. He did get were he wanted to go just not the normal way. When he would stand it would be on the very tips of his toes. I mean the VERY tips. Ouch! I don't know how he did it.
A friend of ours told us about Sooner Start.
Oklahoma's early intervention program is designed to meet the needs of infants and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays.
Sooner Start services may include:
Diagnostic and evaluation services
Family training, counseling, and home visits
Certain health services
Who is eligible?
Infants and toddlers through 36 months of age who have developmental delays or have a physical or mental condition (such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy, etc.) which will most likely cause a developmental delay.
There is no direct cost to families for these services, regardless of the their income. This program is mandated by federal and state law and is funded through various state and federal sources.
It is such a wonderful program. I would recommend it to anyone that thinks they need assistance with their child.
We had them come into our house and based on his assessment we qualified for the program. We had braces made for his legs. They gave me exercises to do with him and we did some physical therapy also and over the past year he has done awesome.
Ty with Lara and Jennifer our wonderful friends who came out and worked with Ty. We love them.
On Thursday they came out and we have decided to close his case based on how well he is doing.
So..can I say this has been one awesome week at our house.

So, I thought it would be another routine day, but I had a little excitement after all.
