Where does the time go?

Shew, it's been a while! In the last month (plus) we have celebrated Mother's Day and Father's Day, made many trips to the hospital (just to visit~PTL), watched Kelsi graduate high school, attended a wedding and 2 birthday parties, and visited with some people we've not seen in a while. Oh, and had JoAnna's 4 month check-up.   ----    So that's were the time has gotten off to.
And we aren't finished yet. Coming soon we have a - um, excuse me 2 - baby showers, a couples wedding shower, 4th of July, anniversary and birthday get-togethers, and Papa Moore's surgeries in no particular order. Plus, a new arrival in the spring. NO! IT'S NOT ME! I'm as excited as if it were me though. Ashley is expecting Burkett #3.
I had a great Mother's Day. Got to spend the day with my daughter and my mother (and the rest of the fam too). FL gave me flowers and JoAnna gave me a ring. We also purchased a new vehicle, which I consider to be a very big present. Brad enjoyed his first Father's Day as well. He of course wanted fishing stuff. So he got fishing stuff. And we went fishing.
JoAnna had her 4 month check up on the 15th and everything was just great. She weighs 14lbs 6oz and is 24 inches long. She got her second set of shots and only ran a low temp for a little while. Next appointment is in August. We started on baby food recently. That has been interesting! She's done pretty good though. Not too much of it gets splattered all over the place.
Please pray for Papa Moore. Just a little over 20 years ago he had to have his heart valve replaced because it was leaking. They told him that the valve would have to be replaced about every 10 years. Well 20+ years later he goes in for a check-up and they tell him that it's time to be replaced. Sure beat the odds on at one. But before they did the operation they were concerned about a spot they had found on his lung in March. So a couple of weeks ago they did another scan and there were 3 spots. The did a biopsy and found that it is cancer. Now the docs are meeting to figure out which issue needs to be dealt with first - lung or heart. He has an appointment in July at the Montgomery Cancer Center to make a determination. Please keep him and Mema in your prayers. He is a little depressed about it all and extremely worried.
Here are just a few pics from the last month.
