My Amazing Husband



I'm going to try and make this a quick post since we're packing up to leave for Arizona in a few hours for my Uncle's funeral. Yeah, we're going in a 15 passenger van with my WHOLE family, including 4 kids. We'll be in the van for at least 16 hours. Should be fun, Right?!

Frankly, this whole week has been CRAZY. That's why I haven't had a chance to blog until now.

I had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend. My amazing husband had a surprise planned for me for several weeks. He did a great job hiding the surprise from me because I was totally clueless that anything was up.

After church last Sunday he brought Elliana to me and said "say goodbye" and then proceeded to hand her off to his parents. My first thought was, where are we going, and my second thought was, how are we paying for this(Ever since I've been home full time we've had to watch our budget closer).

I'm happy to say you can have a lot of fun without spending very much money.

Caleb took us up to his family cabin for an overnight stay. It was my first night away from Elliana. We had an absolute amazing time. He really thought things through. He had packed everything Elliana needed for a night away, my bag and everything I would need, a delicious dinner for the two of us complete with sparkling cider and our wedding champagne glasses, dessert, and even a few chick flicks. He is good!

Here are some great pictures from our time away.

Doesn't this fireplace look cozy?



We took a short walk outside. There were many beutiful views. Don't be fooled by the sunny sky, it was still very cold outside.





Here is our amazing dinner. Doesn't it look delicious?





We always toast with these champagne glasses. These are the same glasses we had at our wedding almost 5 years ago.



Here we are cozying up after dinner.



Here we are on the deck the next morning. Isn't the view from the deck beautiful?!





Needless to say, I'm very thankful for the family cabin and for grandparents that were willing to keep Elliana overnight.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I already know it's going to be a tough one for our family for many reasons.

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.
