26th Birthday Celebration!

So here are some photos in no particular order but they sure do capture all the joy that I
had on my birthday! Derek did so well on all my gifts. He was taking notes the past couple months when we were shopping and everything he got me was on my "list".  Ok. I don't really have one but I would mention things I like and he took notice. He's so wonderful.He really did a great job making my birthday so special. He wanted to make sure he showed me just how much he appreciates and loves me. Mission accomplished.

Love you Robyn! This letter 100% made my day.

This was especially nice. This has been such a hard week for me, mostly with work. I got an e-mail calling me down to the front desk and these were sitting there waiting. They're just beautiful. It really made my day.

HiChews! This is my favorite Korean candy. So good!
Save the best for last. Derek got me an iPhone 4s!
 Unfortunately, the precious phone is on back order so who knows when I'll actually get it. I am hoping before Thanksgiving! Thanks Derek!

My co-workers made it a great day as well. They made me a hilarious Photoshopped birthday card, made me a diet friendly cake, a balloon with candy, let me come down and chat with them during work (Thanks Olivia), and just made me laugh. I also got a sweet card and gifts from Derek's family and his Grandpa Power, and the Tutu's. Then later that night I got a special visit from my friend Jackie. She came to bring me a present and wish my happy birthday. It was nice to see her and catch up. She's such a great friend.

I felt so loved yesterday and it was exactly what I needed. This whole week I was secretly wishing my birthday would be next week because it had started off to be such a bad week. Thank goodness my birthday was exactly what I needed.

It was a busy day and I still have lots of phone calls to return. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday via text, phone call, cards, flowers, and Facebook. All of it made my day.

Here's it to 26! One step closer to 30! ha

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

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…
