Happy Memorial Day 2016

Happy Memorial Day 2016

Happy Memorial Day, Friends! Today we are honoring all of the BRAVE MEN and WOMEN who have fought for our country, and have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. From the bottom of our hearts, we THANK YOU! We pray for peace, comfort, and blessings over your families. Only God can heal the wounds left from the loss of a loved one.

Today, we would like show our LOVE and RESPECT for our great nation, as well as the courageous men and women who are still fighting for our freedom. We appreciate the sacrifices that you make for us daily. May God’s guidance and protection be with you always.

We would also like to remain in prayer for our nation today. Regardless of whether or not we agree with its leaders and their actions, we must remain ONE NATION UNDER GOD. And we MUST trust that GOD is ALWAYS in control. For when we stop doing these things, we will see our nation fall apart.

We pray all of you have a SAFE and BLESSED Memorial Day! 🙂

5 Things: Our Hospital Day

5 Things: Our Hospital Day

Hi Friends! We have had so many of you checking up on us this week to see how Patrick’s procedure went on Monday. Well, we are happy to report that it went very well! Here are 5 little fun facts about how our day at the hospital went…

1. On Monday, Patrick went in to have a quick little procedure to implant a small heart monitor in his chest above his heart. It was scheduled for 8:00 am, which meant that we had to WAKE UP and leave the house earlier than we normally have to. This wasn’t the easiest of tasks because now that we are homeschooling, we have gotten accustomed to sleeping in a bit. And this time, we were bringing our kiddos with us. On top of an already early appointment, we decided to ahead and leave a little earlier that we typically would have since the hospital is a 30 min drive from our home, and we wanted to make sure we would make it on time because traffic can be somewhat of an issue in that area. Well, we got there on time, THANK THE LORD! Patrick went immediately back to get prepped, while the kids and I sat in the waiting room. And this picture of our youngest son depicts how we were all feeling… Continue reading

Custom Wall Plaque With Magnolia Wreath

Custom Wall Plaque With Magnolia Wreath

Hi Friends! Check out this lovely picture that we recently received in from the York family! We built them this dining room table at the end of last year, and they contacted us a few months ago wanting a custom plaque to fill the large open space on their dining room wall.

So, they sent us a sketch, measurements, color theme, and finish that they wanted to go with, and we took it from there! And once they got it hung, they added this beautiful magnlia wreath to finish it off!

Thanks again, Ashlee and Justin! Everything looks BEAUTIFUL!

Look Who Had Some Excited Visitors…

Look Who Had Some Excited Visitors…

Someone had some very EXCITED visitors yesterday! The kiddos were CHOMPING AT THE BIT to get up to the hospital to see their daddy. They stayed as close as they could to him… Ehmmm… right on top of him, the whole time. He was happy to see them too, and did’t mind one bit!

It is very rare that Patrick is ever away from us, so his presence has definitely been felt over the past few days. He has been doing well and feeling better everyday, and is responding well to the new heart medication. I am happy to announce that he will be able to come home tomorrow! YAY! 😉

Thanks again for all of the PRAYERS, ENCOURAGEMENT, and SUPPORT! We truly appreciate all of you! <3

Thank You!

Update On Patrick:

Update On Patrick:

Hi Friends! I apologize for not giving all of you an update yesterday on how Patrick’s procedure went. Since it was scheduled EXTREMELY EARLY that morning, we had to be up for 4:30 am. And neither of us slept very well the night before. So, we were only running on a few hours of sleep. Once we returned home yesterday we were completely EXHAUSTED. Patrick slept off the rest of the anesthesia that was left in his system, and and I watched Christmas movies with our babies and took as nap for as long as they would let me. 😉 Although, I will say that I am very PROUD of them because they were unbelievably SWEET, QUIET, THOUGHTFUL, and WELL-BEHAVED while we were napping. Continue reading
