just a year ago...

Brooke couldn't wait to meet her "babies"

Oh this was about 2 days before I had the babies. Ready to POP!

Our little family of THREE!

One of the happiest moments of my life...meeting #2 & #3

Just a year ago I was anxiously awaiting the date of our scheduled c-section set for June 10, 2010. The week was filled with trips to the doctor, special ultrasounds, and visits to the cancer treatment center for vitamin infusions. I spent a lot of time laying in bed and floating in the pool to keep those girls baking as long as possible. We tried to spend as much time with Brooke before we rocked her world by adding TWO babies to our little home. I remember just crying on our bed with Landon the night before the big day. I was feeling every emotion possible...I was excited, fearful, nervous, anxious, and relieved we had made it so far. Let's just say my pregnancy was so physically painful I did not take any pain medication stronger than tylenol after my section. It just didn't seem like anything in comparison to the previous 36 weeks. Every minute of those 36 weeks was completely worth it and forgotten when I heard those little cries in that operating room. It all seemed like such a little sacrifice for such a BIG blessing.

Today....almost a year later I am in awe of how I can love 3 little girls SO much. They have each brought such joy to our lives. Parenting has shown us how inadequate we are without the Lord's strength. He has provided for our every need and has given us the strength and love to get through each day. We are excited to celebrate this first year that the Lord has graciously given us with our sweet little girls.


  1. It's so cool to see and read about your testimony!!!! Who woulda known back in college that you would have a life like this - yet I look up to you so much b/c of your reliance on God and positive atittude about life!!!!!

  2. Thank you so much Jessica...that is a huge encouragement to me! It is unbelievable that LANDON and I have 3 changes fast and we are so thankful for the Lord working out everything according to HIS plan! :O)
