Fourth of July, Beach Vacation!

Hi everyone! I am so sorry that it has been so long since I have posted. I hope that you have not given up on me. There are many reasons for my not being able to update which I will not bore you with. But here I am at long last!

We are doing well and enjoying the goodness of God! Life has so many ups and downs and challenges but we see God's hand in it all! We would never choose to go through many of the hardships we face and will face yet each one has a purpose and we see our faith in the Lord grow. We never imagined that we would be doing photography together yet God told us to jump and we said how high Lord? So here we are with a very fun, incredibly challenging and fulfilling job that was given to us by God the giver of all good gifts!

We are so very blessed and we are honored to share a few more pictures with you of the dearest blessing in all this world...our daughter! We were at the beach for about 1.5 weeks and Tim took one evening to grab a few shots of me and Annya. This morning he gave me a gorgeous slide show of the images of my little girl. Our hearts have been praying for more children yet God has said no for now, however, we do trust that in His time He will once again open the womb that the doctors say may never bear children without drugs. Our God is in control and we trust that He will continue to care for us all perfectly! Sometimes it hurts and we have to learn to be patient and to say as Paul said "I have learned to be content in whatever situation I find myself".

So my sweet husband knowing that my heart was heavy last night and longing for more children he blessed me with these pictures to help me remember what God did for us even when the Doctors said I may not ever have children without fertility treatment.

So I am content to wait and if I never have another baby I will be so grateful to God for this sweet miracle, Annya Maria, my angle and sweetest gift from God!

Growing Up!

I want to post some pictures here in the next few days but i had to let you all know that Annya is now potty trained! She still will wear a diaper at night and at nap time but we are almost onto two weeks of no diapers during the day! She even goes to town in her big girl panties! I thought about doing pull ups but we skipped that stepping stone and she's done great! Her reward was a beautiful play kitchen! She loves to cook food for all those in the house! :)

We are also making another mile in her life of growing up! She is going to my hair dresser tomorrow to get her first hair cut! I am hoping that it will help her hair to grow in thinker as it is getting longer but it's so fine and thin. We'll see but she's all excited!

Stay tuned for pictures! This week I promise!

"It is Well with My Soul"

My dear friends and family. We serve a God who cares about the smallest creatures and tiniest flowers of the field and so how much more does He love and care for us? Tim and I believe in living a life completely surrendered to God and His plans and desires not our own. So we give Him everything and withhold nothing. The Lord has decided to call the littlest member of our family home to be with Him. We are letting go and realizing that God has our best in mind and so we let go with tears and sadness yet placing our trust and hope in the constant care of our GREAT God!
