another BIG one!

Hi Friends (:

We are getting ready for another big week! Evie's cranio-facial clinic appointment is on Tuesday, and my older sister should be having her first baby sometime mid-week! I can't even explain how excited I am to meet my new nephew, my sister and her husband are going to have so much fun being parents, and they are going to be so good at it!

I am ready to go to the cranio-facial clinic. I am looking forward to meeting the team that is going to do Evie's surgery. There is nothing like walking into a room of brilliant people who are committed to doing everything they can together as a team to produce the best possible result in your child's treatment. That being said, they do this EVERY day... so sometimes they can be kind of numb to the little things that break a mother's heart. I just have to remember to focus on the facts and deal with the little things later.

SO my main prayer request for this week is that Kirstin would have a healthy delivery!!!

Prayer requests for Evie are that I would know the right questions to ask at the clinic, and that the doctors are thorough about the procedure. I would like to know exactly what's happening so there are no surprises. I do better if I have time to process before hand, even if it's awful. Prayer also that I can see God's hand at work through the appointment. We have been constantly blessed through the past 8 months, I don't know why I would expect anything different. God is good. All the time.

Love you friends. Thanks for loving us (:


  1. Just a little prayer being lifted up for two of those close to my heart. I know God hears me over and over but it makes a Nana feel better to be on her knees! Love you Sweetheart!

  2. Yay for being an auntie soon! I saw Kirstin yesterday and she looks ab-fab! I will be praying for her, Pat, your nephew and all of the drs. & nurses involved!
    I am praying too for the appt. you have with the drs. for Evie's surgery. God is amazing and I know He will show himself to you throughout the meeting-calming your fears, giving you strength, and helping you to remember all of the questions that you want answered!
    Love you friends!

  3. Doctors can do amazing things these days! Evie does amazing things every day! You do amazing things every day! GOD is amazing and proves it every day! :)

  4. Praying your appt will go smooth and you'll be at peace with the Dr.s and the results that come from this appt. Just wanted you to know that you are a rocking mom and Evie & Lyla are incredibly blessed to have you as their mom.
    Hugs to you today...

    BTW...awesome news about baby Ricketts...have fun being an auntie! :)

  5. :)LOVE you guys! Sending prayers for Kristin this week! Hope the appointment was good today and settled some of the questions/fears going into this! xoxo
