A Whirlwind Weekend

This past weekend was fabulous.  It was jam packed with so many fun activities.  My dearest, long time friend Robyn was in town for a week.  We went out to dinner and just talked on Wednesday and once I found out she was going to be in town for longer than another day we started making plans.

Movie Under the Stars 

You sit on the hill underneath the capitol building. Bring blankets, food, and friends. 

The played Despicable Me.  We brought the whole family. It was a blast!

Side story about this.  We get there and park and see that everyone around us is much more prepared.  They have mattresses and tons of food and a lot of them are in their PJ's. So Robyn and I decided to go on an adventure to a local market to get some snacks.  We took my little brother with me.  We thought it wouldn't be a bad walk at all.  Who knew that it would be completely downhill and the walk back up wouldn't be very pleasant in flip flops.  BUT....we made it!  We brought back delicious treats just in time for the movie to start.  

For the adventures on the rest of our fun weekend you'll have to stay tuned. Sneak Peak: This is the Place National Park and boating.  Robyn tried wake boarding for her first time ever!

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

I also post all of my free printables here. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your holiday season.
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…
