The Garden has a bug

Well.... this is one of those seasons that each family goes through that's just a tough time. Last week started with Eden's first ear infection. Which, by the way, I pray we never have to go through again!!! Then I got a bad sinus infection and had to be put on antibiotics. Now Larry's sick too.

The one good thing that came out of this is that our church family has been AWESOME!!! We had meals brought to us, and lots of phone calls checking in on us. It's nice to be so loved and cared for. This is one of those times I really missed having my family close by. But then I realize God gave us a great family here too. We're blessed.

I'll post some pictures soon :)

Prayer for Baby Chappell

Please be in prayer for our friends Casey and Dan Chappell. They are 28 weeks pregnant and have been told their baby is very ill. You can read about their situation on her blog at:

Casey has been a good friend, and has taught me a lot about photography. She's taught me even more about having real faith. Faith that's not just words, but actions. Loving like Jesus would love. Pray her faith would grow through this trial and that a miracle would take place in the life of their unborn child.

What a way to spend your Birthday

We spent Eden's birthday at the ER. She ran a high fever most of Monday. By Monday evening it was 103.8, medicine was not bringing it down and I was getting worried. We called the peditricians office and paid $15 for the nurse to tell us we were in for a rough night, (no kidding?)She said that 103.8 was not high enough for her to be seen. She told us to double up on the meds and to wait it out. Well at 12:30 am Eden woke up screamning. She was so obiviously in pain and could not be comforted. So we piled into the car and headed to the ER. During the drive, we discussed how we were at the hospital last year and I was the one screaming.

Anyways. The staff at the ER was great. The nurses had us back at Triage before I had finished filling out the paperwork. Maybe, a screaming baby might hurry the staff along?? She was quickly seen by the doctor and was diagnosed with an ear infection. They gave her some drops in her ear that I called liquid magic. Eden stopped crying within a minute and was smiling and clapping within 5 minutes after the dose. We headed home by 2:00 am. We were still in for a long night, but it was good to know she had medicine that would help ease the pain.

Eden has been fussy today, but seems to be on the mend. Overall, I felt bad she had to spend her birthday so sick :(

Eden's First Birthday

Eden had a blast at her first birthday Party. She seemed to enjoy her cake. Her serious personality can be seen as she taste her cake.

We also caught Uncle Shannon making faces, he likes to clown around. And this is cousin Brielle. She really likes ice cream.
