Gone to soon

It's been a rough week. We will miss you Baby Lainey.  I'm so glad for my knowledge that families are forever.  Although we didn't get to see the miracle on earth, I can't wait for the miracle awaiting for her mom in the next life. Sending lots of love to my dearest friend Stacie.

How to be a pirate

Carli got a part in the school play, How to be a pirate in seven easy songs. She worked so hard and was so excited.
The day before the play she lost her costume before school. She came home from school broken hearted. It took her hours to make her turquoise beard. Also her birds name is Budgee and is very special because it is her great-grandpas. The next day we went to the school and spent hours looking for it. I told her to pray that we would find it and about 30 minutes before the school play, another kid found her costume. So not only was she the cutest pirate in the play, we learned a lesson that big or small he answers prayers.

Orange, turquoise, and sparkly beard. Carli's best friends Jaden and Chloe

Austin's Nicu Buddies

My dearest friend Coleen hosted a party for her daughter Gracie and all of her NICU friends. Gracie was born early and weighed only 3lbs. We spent a lot of time together in the NICU and she was so helpful. Now I am looking forward to working with her as a volunteer. We also got to hang out with Walter and Bryson, who were also in the NICU. They all turned one in the same week. Happy 1st Birthday. I am so thankful to meet such amazing moms. We laughed and cried together. They helped me get through such a hard time.
