Caleb Turns 8!

January 8th, 2015 This boy turned 8 today.  The joy he brings into our lives on a daily basis is priceless.  His enthusiasm for life and boundless energy keeps us entertained and on our toes at all times.   What a gift God blessed our family with 8 years ago!  We knew he was precious then and that feeling has deepened each and every day since.  We love you, Caleb.  May God use you as a force for His kingdom in the years to come. Can’t have a birthday without cinnamon rolls… … and birthday phone calls from grandparents and cousins! These 3. Ready for his...

Thank Goodness for Tamiflu

January 5th, 2015 Tamiflu is a miracle drug.  After Jonah and I were both diagnosed with the flu while in St. Louis, the doctor prescribed our family (all 5 of us) with Tamiflu, thinking there was a good chance the virus would spread.  We weren’t but a couple of hours down the road back home on Sunday when Caleb said his whole body hurt.  He deteriorated quickly with coughing and sneezing along the drive.  We were so thankful we had the meds he needed ready to go.  At that point, Adam and Sumner went ahead and started their Tamiflu packs as well.  (We were so grateful for the...

An Early Birhday Celebration for Caleb

January 3rd, 2015 Saturday was our last day in St. Louis and it ended up being a really rough day.  I awoke that morning not feeling too well.  By midday, I decided I better go in, thinking I might have a sinus infection.  To make a long story short, I ended up being diagnosed with the flu, along with my father-in-law, and Jonah.  That left Adam with the job of packing us all up to make the trip home on Sunday.  In the midst of all of this, Grandma was able to make Caleb a cake and help end the day on a high note.  He requested a chocolate cake and she didn’t...

Dogs and Dodge Ball

January 2nd, 2015 Caleb welcomes the opportunity to hold Aunt April and Uncle Phil’s sweet dogs, Bo and Iggy.  He breaks out pretty badly with other dogs, but seems to handle these 2 better.  So it doesn’t take long for him to start asking to hold them when we are together. We spent a few hours at Sports Fusion on Friday.  The kids played a few rounds of laser tag, mini-golf and lots of dodge ball.  I think the funniest part was seeing Adam and his brother Luke being kids themselves.  🙂 Listening to all of the rules before dodge ball.  They look bored, don’t...
