Father's Day Weekend

So this weekend was fabulous, in fact every weekend since Derek has been here with me has been wonderful.

For those of you who don't know, Derek and I had to be separated after 3 months of marriage for 7 weeks. I came back up to finish my last semester at BYU-Idaho and he was in the middle of his semester at COC in California. He wouldn't be done until June. It was a really hard 7 weeks and I am so grateful that it's over. Having him with me everyday is such a huge blessing in my life. I love him dearly. He takes such good care of me and loves me so much.

Anyways..back to this weekend. We drove down to Utah to visit my family and spend father's day with my daddy. We got down there Friday evening and were greeted with a home cooked meal. Steak. Spinach Salad. Roasted potatoes. Delicious. Saturday we spent the morning getting ready for the boat (pictures to be coming later). We finally left for Utah Lake at 12:30 and didn't get home till around 8:00. Such a fabulous day on the boat. The sun was shining bright and I only got a little sunburned. That's huge for me. Sunday we had a great day at church and later that afternoon had a family feast. Almost all of my mother's family came over to celebrate Father's day with their dad, my grandpa. We had BBQ ribs, apple and walnut salad, rice, homemade rolls, corn on the cob, and homemade ice cream. The food was delicious and it was so nice to see everyone and catch up. I love family and i am so grateful for such a wonderful father. He always believes in me and encourages me to live up to my fullest potential. I love him dearly.

Ok that's all for now. Check out the pictures coming soon!

So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
