Where To Start

For the first time in a long time, I find myself with so many topics to blog about that I don't even know where to start! Life has been good, and quite busy lately.

First of all, we just took our little Elliana in for a follow up appointment with the Dr. The Dr. said she looks great! She is still fighting a cold and is a little congested, but it's not in her lungs and she's breathing really well. Praise God!

On a side note, the Dr. did tell us that Ellie is getting a lot of teeth. I wasn't at all surprised considering she was showing lots of signs of teething lately.

In very exciting news, I'm happy to announce the "birth" of a new blog! When you get a chance, take a look at our new blog, What's For Dinner.

What’s For Dinner?


I think Courtney did the best job of describing how the idea came about in her blog. Once the idea was born, all four of us sisters got excited and worked on it together.

Jenn, my oldest sister and blog designer, did most of the designing. Alli, Courtney and I helped though. :) By helped, I mean we gave our opinions as to what we did and did not like. Ha ha, we're opinionated like that.

Although we may not all be great cooks, we come from a family of amazing cooks! We have lots of delicious family recipes from over many years on this blog. Even if we four sisters don't come up with anything new and delicious, I promise you, our old family recipes are oh so yummy! Check them out!



Caleb is on Fall break this week so we were able to get away as a family. We spent Monday and Tuesday at our new mountain get away. His parents had been dreaming of a family cabin for many years. They bought some land a few summers ago and this summer they finally got to see their dream come true! This is the beautiful new cabin that was built over the summer.



We had a wonderful time and we hope to have many family memories at the cabin!





Doesn't the sight of that fire make you feel all warm inside? :)



Ha ha, from the look of these pictures, I don't think Elliana enjoyed our little hike.



Finally, last but definitely NOT least, I am SOOOOOO excited for the upcoming weeks watching Caleb and his volleyball team! They're regular season is officially over and they won their league!

This has been one of his best teams for sure and they are so fun to watch this year! Friday they play in Districts, then the week after that is Regionals, and the week after that is STATE. They are definitely expected to not only be at state this year, but to do really well.

I'm going to be spending the next few weeks nervously watching and routing them on. GO COUGARS!





Sorry, these pictures aren't that great because I scanned them from the newspaper.

Whew! That was a long one.

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.

We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
