A Few Of My Favorite Things

Lately, life has just been good for our little family. Sure, a little chaotic and crazy at times, but simply good. I have no complaints. Well, I guess one. I would like to be getting more sleep now that my son is over a year old, but I'm sure we'll figure out this sleep stuff soon enough.

Anyway, I just wanted to share a few (or several) of my favorite things that warm my heart and make me smile these days:

Spring and the flowers that are blooming this time of year.





Speaking of spring, buying and wearing spring and summer clothes. Like this cute top I bought today. I can't wait to show you what I'm planning on wearing this for. :)



This little man and his smile that makes my heart almost burst.



Speaking of this sweet boy, the fact that he's "talking" more and more. He tries to repeat most words we say, and although most of the time it doesn't come out crystal clear, it's fun to hear him try. My absolute FAVORITE word from him right now- "Ma-ma." :)



My Wednesdays. I love getting to spend time with my mom, my sister, and her 4 little ones. Our Wednesdays are crazy, but we all get to enjoy some social family time. Especially the cousins.







These two cousins, their sweet relationship, and their striking blue eyes.





There must be something about Ellie and her blue-eyed cousins. This is Abby, my niece on Caleb's side of the family. She and Ellie always have fun dressing up together.



Ellie and her curious mind. She always has a question. And another question to follow the previous one. And another, and another. :)

I LOVE the way both of my children rock out to this song EVERY.single.time they hear it! They ask me to play it over and over every day. I swear one of these days I will get them dancing to this song on video.



Beth Moore Bible Studies. You've got to love Beth. I'm currently doing James and So Long Insecurity. Not only do I love these studies, but I love who I'm studying these books with. I so enjoy the ladies from my Saturday morning Bible Study at my mom's house and the couples from our Sunday evening Couples Group.





My handsome husband Caleb. He's hot, he is a wonderful husband, friend, father and just a good man and I am so lucky to spend my life with him.



And last, but certainly not least, Ellie's tiny voice and how she's been singing more and more lately. She's getting really good. Sometimes I'll play a song just to listen to her belt it out from behind me. Here she is singing the "Itsy-Bitsy Spider" with Caleb. :)



Yes, life is good and I have so much to be thankful for.

I fell in love with Elliana the other night. She is SO adorable. I love her little voice, her curiosity and her spunk. So fun!

So sweet! Love all the good things going on in your life right now! And I love that Beth Moore book and study- I just finished James too and SLI rocked my world! So good!

I watched that video three times because I just can't get over Ellie's voice. She seriously has the cutest chipmunk voice I have ever heard. "Let's do it again!" Your girl is so full of life!

Elle, I don't mind you asking at all! My husband is 6'4" and I am 4'11". There is almost a foot and a half between us. :)

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.
