Katie's Baby

Hello Everybody,

Katie had her baby at 2:48 this afternoon and was a safe delivery. She was in labor for 30 hours and finally had the baby. She had a Baby Boy and his name is John Mark. He weighed 7.13 lb. and is 21 inches long. He is so precious. We saw him and he looks like Katie and Phillip. Katie is resting well and John is resting. He is perfectly healthy. Labor took so long because the baby had his hands by his mouth so it is harder to push out when the hand is in the way. Praise the Lord that He has brought another blessing into this world. Maybe I will get a picture soon.

Thanks for praying!!!!

Katie's in Labor


I just got a call about an hour ago saying that Katie Bradrick is in pre-stages of labor. We are all so excited. She is 9 days overdue and were hoping that this little baby comes into this world soon. Pray for her and that she will do well with everything that's going to go on. Thanks. I will update more later.


Update on Papa


I just want to give a quick update on Papa. He is doing well. He isn't walking with his crutches any more and only has to wear the brace on his knee. He goes to the Dr. in July and we will hear if maybe he can go back to work. He is still using the CPM Machine which moves his leg up and down bending it. Well, that's all for now. He is on his way to recovery. I hope that everybody is doing well. Keep praying for him!!!

In Christ,

Fun Memories in Tennessee

Recently I went to Tennessee with my Auntie Tracey and Uncle Jim for a home school conference. The conference was so encouraging and extremely powerful with all of the wonderful messages. I just have some fun pictures of the people that I went with and just fun times in TN. It was really fun meeting some new people and also reuniting with people that I did know but haven't seen in like 3 years. I was so blessed by the conference and hope that my whole family can go next year. I hope you enjoy the pics!!!!!! :)

Don't be Haughty

Today I am going to write about two verses in Proverbs 21. They are both on being haughty. The first one is, "A haughty look, a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked are sin." and the other one is, "A proud and haughty man- "Scoffer is he" is his name: He acts with arrogant pride." I know that I don't want to be known as a scoffer. I sometimes struggle with being haughty and prideful. I am trying to work on it so when I am older I don't struggle with it as much. I desire to change this area in my life. I hope that I can get better at this with the grace of God. I hope that this encourages you and that you would work on this with me. I hope that you have a wonderful day.

My 16th Birthday Party!!!!!


Last Sunday I turned 16 and I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday with my family and the Tsantles. I had a lot of fun and will always remember it. They had something kind of like a party on Friday night where I went home during the day and then came over and they had the table all beautiful with fancy dishes decorations. It was all vintage and so beautiful. They served me a spaghetti dinner which is one of my favorites with salad and bread. They also mad cupcakes that were so pretty. They piped the icing on yellow and green which green is one of my favorite colors. It was a fabulous party that I will always remember. Then, after dinner we all sat in the family room and everybody went around and told me what they enjoyed about me and then Papa had gotten some special letters from some of the ladies from our church that were very sweet. I loved the letters and will enjoy going back to read them when I get older. After that we all wanted to dance so we were dancing to the electric slide and hokey poky and other fun songs. Then of course we had to go swimming. That was so much fun with it being dark. Well, I got a ton of pictures so I will post some. Here they are:

Kayla, Me and Ally were posing on the fireplace, this is a fun one!!!!
