California Dreams

So I haven't had time to blog lately because life has been to hectic.  It needs to slow it's pace just a little.  Right now I am trying to get caught up on things at work and Derek is trying so hard to catch up on all his classes.  We got home late Tuesday night from our California vacation.  Yesterday we finally unpacked and bought food.  My poor husband was starving for real food.

We went to to California for my sister-in-law's wedding.  It was tons of fun but busy as well. I think I maybe averaged 5 hours of sleep a night.  Maybe that's a lot to you but I am used to 7.5 to 8 hours a night.  It all started as soon as we got off the plane on Wednesday night.  Shopping and preparing for the bachelorette party I would be co-hosting the very next day.  The party was a blast and deserves a post of it's own with pictures.  We'll have to wait until I get a hold of those from my other sister-in-law. Then there was decorating, rehearsal dinner, more shopping, the wedding, pictures, reception, clean up, breakfast, and gift opening.  It was a jam packed couple of days.

Here are some of the pictures I have from the wedding day.

The many faces of Derek.  Isn't my husband adorable?

The happy couple and Derek with his favorite ladies

I can't wait to tell you all about the girls night out party and the LA Country Fair.  I will love the LA County Fair forever simply because it helped a 5 year dream come true.  It's a great story, well, to me.  Stay tuned to see the exciting surprise.

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…
