One year ago.... Stellan

One year ago this baby boy Stellan was on his death bed and with God's power was healed of a deadly heart condition. This past weekend we had the pleasure of helping his mommy out by watching him while she did multiple photo shoots for her blog readers. You can read all of Stellan's health history at mycharmingkids.net. He is seriously a miracle baby. God used the doctors to heal little Stellan and now he is SVT FREE! AMAZING!

After Church we came home and ate lunch before Stellan & Ainsley went down for naps. Stellan LOVED Tim! Tim was trying to teach him "knucles"Stellan woke up a happy boyHe loved throwing this dog at the boys..... they would all laugh so hard!Playing cars and trucks.... what boys do best!Ainsley was a little unsure about sharing, but she got better as time went on.



We loved spending time with Stellan, and the kids LOVED giving him all their attention. We love you precious baby!

Far away friends.....

This past weekend I got to spend some awesome time with my friend Jennifer and her baby Stellan. If any of you have been reading my blog for a while you probably remember a numerous amount of prayer requests I posted for her baby Stellan. Stellan was born with a critical heart condition and was totally healed by God. You can read his whole story on her blog at www.mycharmingkids.net. While Jennifer was in Cali visiting we had the pleasure of taking care of Stellan. I will be posting pictures of him spending time with our family soon. He did great and fit right in with our four kids. He was totally comfortable and soaked up ALL the attention!
We LOVED taking care of this precious miracle! I also LOVED spending time with his mommy. Far away friends are special in soooooooooo many ways!

time out.....

No matter what Karsten is doing he is always having a good time..... we went to the park last week and Karsten was having a hard time listening so I made him sit out for the first 5 minutes to "take a break."
At first it looked like he was praying....maybe asking for forgiveness....and one second later he was making funny boy noises and faces.....
.....thats our Karsten

Best buddies....

My best friend Heather and I met in college. We grew close fast, being that we had a lot of things in common. We were both cheerleaders, gymnasts, had multiple siblings, were raised in Christian homes, liked Slurpee's, always had our cameras, liked watching baseball games, loved shopping, and so many more things!!!! Tim (my husband) was my boyfriend at the time and he was a baseball player at Cal Baptist and Jimmy (her boyfriend at the time, now husband) was a baseball player at Vanguard. So we enjoyed watching our 2 men playing against each other.


Even though I left Vanguard to come home to finish college, we kept in touch. We would talk weekly to catch up on each others lives. I was a little ahead of the game with getting married and having our first two kids. But when she told me she was pregnant for the first time.... I was embarrassed to say "So was I" being that I just had Luke 4 months earlier. Our boys, Karsten and Jaxon were born 1 day apart. Whenever we get the boys together they laugh, wrestle, hug, run, and talk. I love to see them interact and enjoy each other so much. Here are the boys a few weeks ago enjoying each other at Ruby's on the Oceanside pier.

Our pirate princess......

Ainsley loves playing outside! I was in switching the laundry the other day and came back outside to check on her, I found her in one of her brother's pirate hats. When she saw me she looked up and said, "Arrr....."

cake pops.....

His heart.....



Luke is a very sweet boy. When I picked him up from school last Friday he still had his Easter Bunny ears on from his party at school. We headed to a park to eat lunch, play, and go on a nature hike. The whole time we were there he was wearing these ears. I love that he doesn't care what other people think..... he likes his ears and so he is going to wear them. I love his gentle spirit and loving heart.
