My Family

This blog serves as an avenue to share our testimony of God's provision and healing in our lives. This is our precious and complete family!   

I'm an Arkansas girl who made her way to Tennessee for 10 years, and now calls Missouri home.  I am a child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and preemie advocate.  I LOVE music, it's the backdrop to the story of our lives.  I'm incurably southern, LOVE SEC football, deep sea fishing, fireplaces, and the color red.  I would love to visit Italy more than any place in the world.  I adore our home in the Smoky Mountains, but would prefer living beach side somewhere remote.  My favorite smells are Lowe's, new school supplies, Vanilla, and my babies right after their baths.  I'm terrified of open heights and snakes (didn't use to be).  I love the Turks and Caicos, history movies, good wine and margarita's, Friends, playing in the leaves, tulips and hydrangeas, my toes in the sand, photography, Mexico, the smell of burning leaves, Maui, Sephora, cooking, sunsets and sunrises, sleeping in, and thunderstorms.  I'm an open book, an oversharer, and an over-grammer (there is NOTHING wrong with taking 1 billion pictures of my gorgeous kids).  My family is my #1 dream job.  

My John
He can read me like a book, like no one else ever has.  We absolutely share a brain, have our own language, and finish each others sentences...from day 1.  He knows and loves me as I am.  He is who I dreamed of when I was little and prayed for as I got older.  

He's an awesome man of God, excellent communicator, and  advocate.  The man could sell anything, if he believes in it.  I love how he can talk in circles, because I get his circles. He's the most indecisive person I know, yet knows exactly what he wants.  I love that about him.  He's an amazing Daddy to our baby girls!!

Meet our "A" Team

Anna Claire...
our first baby girl!  Also known as
Peanut, ladybug, baby girl, Princess, booger bear, big toot
our sweet is her Daddy made over! 

She's a talker, she's loud, she doesn't
know her own strength, she's sensitive, and she 
has a memory like NO OTHER!!  She loves to sleep in, eat junk food and is a total TV junkie.  She is a leader, a
singer, a dancer.  She loves to play outside, plan and
schedule things, create special crafts and paint. She's such a lil' Mama and a much better hostess than I ever thought about being!  

Anna Claire is 10 years old and in 4th grade.

Ava Elizabeth....
Our second baby girl!

Also known as  Ava E, Ava Liz,
sweet girl, lovebug, booger bear,
and our miracle middle.  She is 7 years old and in 1st grade!  Ava is extremely sensitive and shy, but once she's comfortable she's a talker.  She has only one speed and one volume.....Fast and Loud!!  She is our "Drama Queen," crying or laughing at the drop of a hat!  She's a "More, More, More" and "Again, Again, Again" kind of girl!  She's SO expressive!  She adores her big sister!!  She LOVES life and can't get enough of anything and everything she does!!  She's pure joy! 

"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made" ~Psalm 139:14

Allison Grace....
our third baby girl! 
Also known as Alli girl, lil' bit, lil' toot, our sweet
Alli is hands down a medical anomaly, an utter miracle! 

Alli is has the best laugh.  She is a fighter...probably the strongest person I've ever been in contact with!  There's no reason why she should be so happy having been through so much and still going through so much, but she smiles right through most tests, pricks, prods, and pokes!!  She has a GREAT purpose in this life and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to witness her miracle!
