William's First Real Haircut!

It was time....time for a haircut for lil' Mr. William...we all love his beautiful red curls, but it was in his eyes and always in his food and well...it was time.  We met up with Sarah & Mike at this cute little kids shop in Country Village.  When we got there he was already in the chair, a fun race car chair.  There were three gals cutting hair and they were quick!  They had quick hand and moved as fast as the kids could move their heads..amazing!  William was great as usual and it looks like the curls will still return!

An update on lil' Camren for everyone....he stablized enough to forgo heart surgery and administer the drug that will hopefully close up his heart murmur.  We will know more tomorrow, but for know our little fighter is holding his own.  Praise the Lord!  Keep the prayers coming!


Simple Stories is A-MAZ-ING!

The new Simple Stories products are amazing as usual!  I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the new stuff...they have new chipboard, brads, flair, and layered stickers!  So much yummy goodness!
I am in love with the grey in this new line, Vintage Bliss!
The next new collection, Urban Traveler, is so versatile!  It  can be used for so many fun themes...again, I am lovin' the grey!
And finally, 24/7 is an everyday line that reminds me of being back in high school...all that wonderful cork combined with deep yellow, dark red and sky blue!


Happy Birthday William!

We celebrated William's birthday party on Saturday and it was a fabulous time!  William was so good with all the chaos...he really seemed to be enjoying all the people and commotion!  It has been a fabulous year with him in our lives...and I am so thankful that I get to hug on him all the time.  I love my days with him and welcome the adorable distraction from everyday life!
May everyday of the next year be a celebration!  We love you, William!


The past week....

has been a whirlwind.....

Anaheim for CHA...Seahawks in the playoffs...Birthday spent in Disneyland...but the biggest news of all was our early addition to our family....

Meet Camren Thomas....


He made is VERY early entrance into our family on January 16th - 15 weeks early and only 1 lb 12 oz!  Angie & Camren are both doing great and baby Camren is already breathing on his own! 
He is so tiny, but oh so perfect!  It is very hard to be so far away from them right now....so I'm sure we will be heading to Missouri sometime very soon!
Welcome to the world little man....we couldn't love you more!
