Derek's Golden Birthday

So on October 25 we celebrated Derek's 25th Birthday! finally my husband is as old as me for a couple of weeks. Helps me not feel so much older than him for a little bit.

So it started the Sunday before with dinner at my family's house. We had a nice dinner and delicious chocolate birthday cake. We didn't have any candles so we just put some number candles together to add up to 25. Classy. I know. 

Looking excited!
So for his actual birthday we went to a Brazilian restaurant, Tucano's, to celebrate. We first went here for Valentine's Day and just loved it. Their lemonades are to die for. Derek loves the all your can eat meat aspect which I don't mind because it's something i feel he can eat a lot of. They go around when the cube is green and they slice of little pieces of BBQ chicken, brisket, steak, and grilled pineapple. As soon as you turn your cube over to red they will stop bringing you meat. There is also a fresh all you can eat salad bar which is nice for me. I can only handle so much meat.

Birthday Dinner
After we got home he went to opening presents. I was so excited to watch him open up all his gifts. I tried really hard to find fun, small things that he would really enjoy. With more small things you get to open more presents. I got him the Back to the Future trilogy on Blu Ray and Home Alone 1&2 on Blu Ray also. Then his favorite salt and vinegar chips he had been craving, Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins, and a Fact O Pedia book. Those of you who know Derek understand that his mind is constantly full of random information he picks up from the History Channel, Discovery Channel, or through books. I thought we could add to this knowledge with a Fact O Pedia book. It's been fun to read through together. Already we've learned a lot about the element Neon. ha He also got cards from Grandpa Power, Tutu Larry and Kathy, and his parents.

Isn't he adorable? Oh the many faces of Derek...
 So now it's time to bring on the rest of the crazy months ahead. Starting in September with my family and Derek's there are tons of birthdays, then Derek's, mine, Thanksgiving, Christmas, our anniversary, and then we'll finish it off in February on Valentine's Day. Here is to a fun and busy couple of months!

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…
