Happy Birthday / Anniversary To Me!

One year ago today I started this blog. I don't know if that makes it my first birthday or my first anniversary, but I thought I should acknowledge it either way.

I'm so glad I started blogging. My only regret is not starting sooner. I really wish I had started when I got pregnant with Elliana. I would love to go back and read how I was feeling with each phase of the pregnancy. It would also have been great to begin writing about her the moment she was born to capture all of those newborn moments. Oh well, at least I'll be able to blog about every important moment from here on out.

I've really enjoyed being a part of this "blogging world" and following all of my family and friends blogs too. Mostly, it's been great to go back and read about how God has been faithful to us time and time again. I loved going back and reading/ watching all of Elliana's milestones, how God provided a way for me to be home full-time, Caleb's team taking 2nd in State, etc. Really that was why I started blogging. Not just to keep a record about our lives and to watch pictures and videos, but as a reminder to me about how God has always worked everything for his good. I know he will continue to do so. I'm so excited to see what God has in store for us in this upcoming year! :)

Since my very first post had a fun video of Elliana, I thought I should close this post with a video that Caleb took of miss Ellie this morning. We love this video, even if Ellie is into the word "no" a lot lately.

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

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.
