Evie's 2nd Birthday in Photos (:

Sunday birthday lunch after church at Valentinos buffet - Brownie cake! just starting to get the hang of the birthday thing...

musical cards are the best!

To our house to open gifts - Evie step stepping to Mr. Brian (yes, the one who takes the amazing photos)

coloring... after the girls painted their own faces (:

who's more excited about the fun car!?

we could have sat on the floor in the ball room for hours

And today, the 19th - at the zoo. All of the birthday pancake photos ended up on my phone :(

the highlight of the zoo this time was the giraffes!

Eve and mom tied together, the usual (:


Evie loves cake... and her dad!

I'm 2! (thats one on each hand) (:


sisters....what? we're not supposed to rub our hands together with our cake!?

but it's hilarious!!!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Evie Jayne! (:


  1. Congratulations to Evie and your family and wishing her many happy returns of the day.

    As a Blogger Engineer, I felt proud in reading your story in southwest's spirit magazine and knowing about your Blog.

    As you would have noticed you are a Blog of Note today, Congratulations!

  2. Happy B-Day Evie!

    Like Vardhman posted above, I came across your blog as the Blog of Note today.

    Funny thing is, I was looking for blogs to create a web page assignments for my students (I teach web development at Chadron State College out in the western part of NE), and ended up reading some of your recent posts. What an amazing journey!

    My youngest daughter, Abby, was born with an infection and heart defect requiring stay NICU and several months of endless doc visits... She is doing well now, but, like Evie, we just didn't know in the beginning.

    Reading Evie's story brought up emotions that I haven't felt in a while.

    I'm glad she has come so far, and that you guys were able to enjoy such a wonderful day!

    Also, we spent many days in Omaha over at Children's last year. What an excellent place to receive medical treatment!

    Anyways, Happy b-day Kiddo! All the best, Jamison Family (Todd, Wendy, Hannah, and Abby)

  20. This is a fun blog! I talked about you in my blog post today:

  21. Congrats on Blogs of Note!

  22. I ran across your story in Soutwest Spirit magazine. All I can say is wow and how blessed you are. A constant reminder how precious life is, something we often forget. Evie I'll be watching your story here and praying for you...

  23. What a precious and beautiful girl she is. She is very blessed to have the family she has as you are all blessed to have her. I read your story the other day in Spirit Magazine and bawled. I tried keeping it hidden but I have a 20 month old via adoption and she was sitting right next to me. This story tugged at my heart. I was good and only let a couple of tears slip, but if I allowed myself I would have been needing a time out in the bathroom.
    You are an amazing woman and family. May Evie live another 100 glorious years. Thank you for sharing your story.

  24. Happy 2nd Birthday to Evie!! She's BEAUTIFUL. :]

  25. Your girls are beautiful! I will keep you in my prayers! Happy Birthday Evie!
