Happy 7th Birthday Gabriel!

Gabriel was born on July 21st – 8 weeks early! I wasn’t able to even hold him before he was rushed to the NICU where he spent many weeks on a breathing machine. Twice we were told that he would probably not live through the night. The tears […]

No Exceptions?

Our family rarely visits  amusement parks in the states because it’s a little crazy going with all of our kids. There’s nothing worse than standing in line for 30 minutes only to get to the front and see that sign that says,  “You must be 48inches tall to […]

My Kids…Your Cameras

When teams are in Haiti – we ask for their camera cards each night at dinner. Then we upload several pictures while the teams blog about their day. This is one of my favorite things to do because you get to learn all about their day just by […]

Tonight was family night in our house! Jose made pizza and baked a cookie cake! I promised the kids we would play games tonight and of course no one could agree on one – so we played 2. The twins wanted to play the Spiderman Memory Game. Can […]

Serving As A Family…

For the past several months I’ve been really concerned about our Children’s Church. I feel like it’s been falling through the cracks and no one was taking ownership of leading our children. My kids would come home and tell me one of the following: 1 – They keep […]

Happy 4th of July!

Tonight we celebrated the 4th of July for the first time in our home! (Well outside the home 🙂 ). Jose did everything he could to make today a memorable day…. and it was!  We decided to have a cookout in our front yard. We normally do bonfires […]
