Harvest Carnival

Oh Dear! Clearly Beth & Jen had a rough day. They came walking out of the bushes. So funny.

Arthur went on a missions trip to India and brought back the perfect outfit.

Daisy Pregnant 15 weeks

So, I have experienced "quickening" (the first movements of your baby). It is pretty spectacular. I am not feeling them regularly yet but I am told soon enough the baby won't STOP moving. I am anticipating that time. Striving to give glory to God as you experience morning sickness all day is truly a dying to self. It's difficult but God has given me strength and perseverance and I am very blessed.

Baking for Harvest Carnival

Stacey baking muffins!

Crystal & Ella
We had a great night! Made lots of treats for the Harvest Carnival and had great fellowship as well.

Second Ultrasound

Yay! You can really see the baby in this one! You can see its big head and little nose. The doctor said it has really long legs! Poor thing it has no choice! We are so excited! Praise the Lord!

First Ultrasound

Here is the baby- you can see the little sack and its little arm. It looks like a
little gummy bear!

It is so hard to see but here are the first photos of Baby Cox. You can see its little pudgy arms.
I am eight weeks along.

Baby Room Ideas

So I found this adorable website called!
I have found some great ideas and wanted to show you my two favorite! I love the paint colors and all the fabrics for bedding. I am going to put my sewing machine to good use! Can't Wait!

2nd Trimester

Well, this is what the baby would look like in 3D at 13 weeks. It really is incredible! John and I are still in disbelief but overjoyed! Our 12 week ultrasound went really well. The baby was flipping all around and flailing its little arms. John and I were laughing so hard! It was such a blessed time and we are anticipating the arrival of Baby Cox with the new due date April 26th. I still am not over the morning sickness but it is getting better. Thank you all for your love & prayers. It's unbelievable how God forms this little one and each month you get to see His miraculous works on display! I am overwhelmed!
13For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother's womb.
14I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:13-14

Trip to Kauaii


Here's the Scoop...I was heading home from work on Monday, August 14th, and I just had to stop at Target and get a test. I found this awesome one that had 3 in 1 so I decided to take one there!!! I was just so excited. Unfortunately the test was inconclusive (or so I thought) because the line was so faint but I bought 2 little bibs anyway; each saying "I Love Daddy," one in pink and one in blue. I decided to wait and tell John after I had taken another test. The next morning I took the 2nd and again the line was too faint (but there was a line). Wednesday, August 16th was the infamous day! I actually took the test on my lunch break at work and low and behold that second line was extremely dark!

I called John immediately but no answer- he was in a meeting at church- so for about 2 hours God & I were the only ones who knew :) So when I finally spoke with John I could barely contain myself and nothing that I said could convince him to come to my work so I asked him to go look in the car for something that I needed (the bibs happened to be in the back seat) and immediately he knew even before he found the bag. He showed up about 5 seconds later and we jumped around and laughed and cried a little. So I realized that if there is ANY kind of line on a test - it's positive!

Praise the Lord for His amazing blessing and miracle in our lives.

Clay & Lotte

Lotte & Clay, my new favorite couple. I had such a blast spending time with the two of them before Jenny's wedding 2 weeks ago. We went to San Francisco and ate at the Rainforest Cafe and walked arond Pier 39.
It was the most beautiful night and I was hanging out with the cutest couple; the two you see above. Clay, was such a breath of fresh air. He was very relaxed and at a much slower pace than Lotte and I. We were basically running down the street and Clay was just strollin'. My favorite part of the night was driving home and singing worship songs together.
It was a very memorable evening and I look forward to when John meets Clay. We are going to have a lot of fun together :) God has given the two of them so much to be thankful for!
"Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."

These past months of ministry have been so great. We are so humbled that God would choose us to be in this position in His church. Our young adults group is really becoming such a tight knit clan. There are a few fun events planned for this month.

FM Calendar:

1. Lake Trip at the end of June.
2. Dodger game in July.
3. Camping Trip in August.
4. BBQ's every other Friday night (FNL-friday night live)

The Lord has truly been blessing the guy/girl Bible Studies as well. We (the women) are in the 6th chapter of "Feminine Appeal" by Carolyn Mahaney and it has been a huge time of growth and conviction in all of our lives. John preached a great sermon last night on 1 Peter 3:15-17- being ready to give a defense of the gospel. What an applicable message for us in this day in age; there are so many outside infulences that would try to rob the simplicity of the gospel and it's truth. I love the two questions John posed at the end of his sermon.

Are you living a life that other people would even ask you to give a defense of the gospel?

Would people come and ask you why all the things they hear and see from the media are so different from the way you live?

Chloe Anne

We went to visit the Rayners on Sunday. We had a lot of fun accept I woke Chloe up from her nap and it took a while for her to calm down. Woops! Another lesson learned.

She has grown so much! Praise God she gained a pound and a few ounces!
