Not This Week

My sister Courtney reminded me that it was way past time for me to update the world wide web with pictures and/or videos of Elliana.

I quickly agreed, and I fully intended to do just that this week. However, Elliana and I have been fighting a nasty cold. I think she's almost over hers, and mine has just begun. :(

Needless to say, I did not feel that this would be a good week to take lots of pictures or videos. After all, who likes looking at photos of miserable babies with snot covered faces? I'm sorry for the visual, but it's what we've been dealing with.

Poor thing, she was miserable most of the week. She wasn't at all interested in playing. She was fussy and clingy and her eyes always looked half open. It's so hard to see her like that. I'm thankful that the worst seems to be over and she's beginning to feel better.

Last night when she was beginning to show signs of feeling better, we were able to capture a short video. I apologize. It's not the greatest. The house was a little dark and I couldn't keep the camera still. I think that's a sign that it's been too long. Ha!

Have I mentioned that I love this girl?

On a side note, God totally gave me an attitude check this week. I was scheduled for jury duty and I was dreading it! I have to admit that I complained about it quite a bit.

I've gotten a jury summons several times before, but I never had to report -until yesterday. So, yesterday I reported and all morning I kept thinking to myself, "how can I get out of this"?

To make a long story short, I wasn't selected as one of the jurors, but I was in the courtroom and I watched the process of selecting jurors. I never knew that I would get to observe everything that I did and I found the whole thing fascinating! I have a whole new respect and understanding for our justice system. Really, everyone should see the courtroom in action some time.

I actually felt a little disappointed (a little) when I wasn't selected. Now that I've had this experience, I won't cringe or complain the next time I get a jury summons.

I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm going to be busy fighting a cold.

Thank you! Just post a video everyday of her from now on please. But make them longer than 28 seconds. Maybe 8 hours.

I watched this video with our daughter, Jael. She loved so much, she kept on saying "again, again" and "meh, meh" (more in Swissgerman)... You've got a cute daughter!
Love from Switzerland!

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!

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

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

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.
