We're still here... :)

Hi Everyone, Sorry I have been neglecting the blog for the past few weeks. I have been hobbling around for a couple weeks now with a pinched nerve in my hip and it has been really bothering me and then last week I totally crashed with a bad cold that went straight into my lungs again. Boy, it was not fun but I am so grateful for the prayers of friends and for God's healing hand raising me up.

Now, we are waiting and waiting for our little bundle to arrive. We had had a day or two that we thought was going to be it so when they turned out not to be it just makes the waiting even harder! Charis was born late at night 6 days before her due date and Mercy was born early in the morning 5 days before her due date...today is 6 days till due date...could it be tonight or tomorrow morning?! I would love it to be!!! Caleb was 15 days early so that has come and gone long ago, the baby didn't get the memo that I had wanted an anniversary baby (our 6th anniversary was Sunday) so beyond tomorrow the rest is uncharted territory which I had hoped would remain uncharted but only time will tell and God knows the perfect day for this baby to come.

So, hopefully, my next post will be an announcement but to tide you over until then (I know you all must just be dying that I haven't posted in 2 1/2 wks...j/k) I thought I would leave you with a few recent pics.

Here is my sweet Caleb and Charis wearing matching outfits for her birthday, as you can see, my son is about as photogenic as his father and that was the best I could get him to smile! ;)

Mercy is our sweet little girl who LOVES to sing, all the time and anywhere. :)

A couple of pics of Charis with her doll cake that she requested for her birthday. As you can tell I didn't feel up to doing anything fancy, thankfully she is only 4 and didn't mind too much...besides it was chocolate cake! :)

And here is the progression from week 20, 24, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 37, 38 then 39 and still waiting....

Hope you all are doing well...until next time!

Charis is 4!

Today my little girl is turning 4 years old! I can hardly believe it!
She is such a sweet sister to her big brother and her little sister. I made the mistake of telling her that the earliest I could have this baby would be on her birthday so now she associates baby with birthday and says her baby *brother* (as she calls it) is going to be born today. When I told her not necessarily (I'm at 37 weeks!) that it will be born today or that it will be a brother, she then decides that I will have it at the birthday party later this week at my parent's house. ;) I kindly told her, no thank you, that if I happened to go into labor at the party I would just go around the corner to our house to have it. Ahh, a 4 year olds mind. :)

Anywhoo, she's precious to us and we are so thankful that the Lord blessed us with our sweet Charis Joy 4 years ago tonight!

We're Here...

Hi Everyone, as many of you already know, last week someone hacked into our personal and business e-mail accounts and website hosting. Whoever it was was very hateful and sent out such wicked things from our accounts and unfortunately caused harm to friends, clients and family. I am very blessed that the person did not realize that I had a blog attached to the business' google account as I was very concerned that they may have posted evil things here as well.

Our case is under investigation with the local police and FBI. Our google account may be shut down completely very shortly and will thus close this blog down with it. I have already figured out how to export it to a new spot and should the need arise I will make sure everyone has the new web address when/if this blog should close. Leave a comment if you want to make sure and have the new site when it changes. There is light at the end of the tunnel, praise the Lord!

Hope you are all having a lovely week. :)
