Candy Time-2013

This year our city decided to pass out
candy a week early trying to avoid bad weather.

This years theme was recycle-reuse.
Which equals saving money!
My little angles.

Kirstin decided she wanted to wear her daddy's
uniform from his first tour.
After her bestie found out she wanted to where one too.
So she wore his uniform from tour #2.

Some ladies at one house asked where they got their costumes from.
She proudly told them they belonged to her father
and they were the real deal :)

Daniel was a little duck.
When we first put his costume on he
acted like that puppy that you put some clothes on 
and they just fall over on the floor.
He just sat there with a floppy back :)

Kaveri and her bestie the lalaloopsy + a boy from school the storm trooper.
We had a large group of kids
Daniel fell asleep about 20 minutes in and 
didn't wake up till we were done.

It was a good time!
I am sad b/c I looked cute in some crazy socks
but I never make it in the pictures ;(

New Bethlehem

We went out to the vet  to pick up Natas'
meds. It's a country vet , a 45 minute drive.
The town is New Bethlehem and it has gorgeous

I want one of these everywhere we go!

We love and appreciate our vet.
The are a very kind, caring, Christian based clinic.
Their prices are fair and far better than the big chain clinics.
The drive is worth it :)

This Boy

This boy was feeling under the weather two weeks ago.
His stomach was swollen and he was a little sluggish.

We took him in to the vet.
He suspected liver disease b/c of his stomach.
He had to spend the night and get some tests.
He has never spent the night away from home in the 
8 1/2 years of his life.

The vet called the next morning to tell us that he did not
have liver disease. He has a large tumor :(
It is growing right above his heart.
As it grows it pushes down on his heart causing 
heart failure which then causes liver failure
which is causing the bloated stomach.

There is no cure, just medicine to keep him comfortable.
There is no exact amount of time he has left.

Everyone was thrilled when he came home.

We did have a horrible night where we almost lost him.
But he fought through it and his meds kicked in.

He is back to running.


Yeah, he's pretty :)
 Playing indoor tag with his favorite ladies.

Giving kisses.

We are praying he stays around for a while,
we would all appreciate if you did the same :)

He's a Cutie

For some reason he loves falling asleep in Derek's arms
while holding his beard.....

Your kid has a teddy bear,
mine has his dads facial hair :)

Wendy's Pregnant and a Happy Birthday

My sister Wendy and her husband Will are officially pregnant!

They tried for a while and prayed diligently.
She took a test every morning.
She is slightly crazy wanted to be sure :)

She hung this onesie with a pregnancy test attached 
in the closet to surprise her husband.
 First time they saw the baby and 
heard it's sweet heartbeat.

They announced it to the world at 11 wks.

Sweet baby bump.
She worked her butt off to have a reveal party.

It's a BOY!

She is now 21 weeks pregnant. 
Half way there.

12Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. 13For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. 14I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.…
