Our life is nothing short of an adventure...

Wind in our hair and screams of delight but also unpredictable turns and unknown outcomes. We are a family of six; Dave, Susie, Nate, Jake, Sam, and Bella.

God has been faithful in our marriage and through the birth and blessings of our boys.

God has been faithful during our adoption journey and united Bella with us in May of 2008. We were privileged to visit with Bella's birth mother; therefore, Bella's family in Guatemala will always be dear to our hearts.

On October 16, 2008, Bella was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. We are now battling the disease with 2 years and 3 months of treatment. We believe God will continue to be faithful!

Our family is committed to living life to the fullest...even on the hard days. Thank you for checking in and journeying with us!

Ring Pops!

My First Ring Pop

Mmm...Good Stuff Grandpa!

Mom....why did you take it?

I want my Ring Pop!

Ok Grandpa....I will share.

Grandpa has a long time tradition of the "treat bag" at the cottage. And the kids know it! Every year at the beginning of the season I think he cleans out Sam's Club by purchasing every fun type of candy he can find and then loads up his bag (he refills it often as he as 12 grandchildren!). Once a day, the grandchildren are allowed to choose one treat from "the treat bag". One of the kids favorites is still the old school "ring pop". This was Bella's first experience with anything sweet other than fruit....and she was quit taken with it.
