Brooklyn's Blessing

As mentioned in my last post, Brooklyn was blessed on March 3. It was a crazy weekend and a busy day but we wouldn't of had it any other way. We felt so blessed to be able to have friends and family support us on this special day. It was so special to see and hear Derek bless our little girl. We are lucky parents to have this sweet girl in our life. Can't wait to see what her life has in store for her. We will do the best we can to raise her right. 

Keep in mind that there was a lot going on trying to take these pictures so we forgot how to properly sit up Brooklyn so that her head wasn't all over the place. Oh well. We did our best for a crazy day. I think the pictures turned out nicely. Some pictures Brooklyn was still in her blessing dress and all the ones with my family she wasn't. By that point in the afternoon she had a little accident and the dress was no longe wearable. ha 

I don't have any close up pictures of Brooklyn's dress quite yet but let me tell you it is gorgeous. Honestly. My mom made it and it couldn't have turned out more perfect. It is an old fashioned blessing dress with the prettiest slip to go underneath. So grateful I have a mom of many talents. She's made my prom dress, altered my wedding dress, made me a black dress when I couldn't find one that fit right, and now Brooklyn's wedding dress. She's a talented lady and I have been blessed by her skills.

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

UPDATE:  Hello Everyone! I have noticed that this post has been receiving a lot of traffic via pinterest and The Dating Divas Website. I wanted to welcome you all. I still do free printables for different seasons and holidays but no longer post them on my personal blog. We'd love it if you'd follow along on our design journey. You can find us on Facebook! 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…
