So Derek and I really slacked on Halloween this year. He's been so busy with school work that we don't always have a lot of time to celebrate things in a HUGE way.  However, we did take time to
celebrate just a little.

So a friend of mine works for the Provo Parks and Rec department as an event planner and every year they put on a Halloween Carnival. We wanted to go and support her even thought we found out when we got there that it is mostly for families with little children. Oh well. We made our own fun. You can guarantee that we were the tallest people walking around the cake walk but we didn't care. We had fun. There was a haunted house and a magic show. We only stayed for an hour or so and then were planning on going to a Halloween part in a huge house in Lindon, Utah. Unfortunately, on our way there our phone died with the directions so we just went back home and danced to the Monster Mash and watched Ghostbusters. 

On Sunday we also had some friends over for a game night and we served them with some warm apple crisp and vanilla ice cream. That was a lot of fun as well. I had all my cute Halloween decorations up so it was fun to have people over. 

Since we were slacking on Halloween our costumes aren't anything to brag about either. We did the best we could with the stuff we had in our closet. I am a witch, kind of, and Derek is a pumpkin.
My scarf cape. Quite clever...

Derek as an angry pumpkin.

There was an actual person dressed up as Jack the Skeleton from
the movie but the line was so long for picture taking.
 Hope you all had a happy Halloween!

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…
