Random Fun

I found these pictures and figured they would be fun to post here.

This is my random, yet awesome, sister.

Kimmie and I had some fun taking pictures on Saturday.

Vince and me at the California Academy of Sciences on my Birthday.

Kimmie and I took Koda to the park on Saturday. He was thirsty.

Savior of the World

Tonight I went with Vince's parents to their church to watch a performance on the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. (I kind of miss seeing good church plays.) The whole thing was obviously very well rehearsed. The actors were well casted and clearly worked hard on their parts. The play was very good and a reminder of what Jesus did for me/us... it makes my heart happy to know Him. Like Christmas plays in December, these types of performances help keep your focus on the real reason for certain holidays.
I love Jesus so much and thank Him for what He's done with/in my life!!
Thanks, God!!

Vince's Knee

Vince's knee is getting better. He is still in a lot of pain and cannot put pressure on that leg yet, but there is healing. We took the dressings off of his leg today and iced it. His knee is very swollen but it doesn't look as bad as I had imagined it would. His body hurts from having to sit/lay in the same position all day and night; he wants to be able to turn on his side.
A definite answer to prayer is that a lady we know had an ice pack like the one we were looking for (the $200 one) and is letting us borrow it for FREE. Thanks, God!!

Thank you for your prayers for Vince. Please continue to pray for a full and speedy recovery.

Vince's Surgery

Vince had surgery today on his ACL and meniscus. The fact that he got to have surgery today is a miracle in itself! He was told last month that the Doctor was booked through March, they weren't yet booking for April, and there were 50 people on the list before him. Vince told them if there was a cancelation, he would take it. Praise God there was! He got a call about a week later that his surgery was scheduled for March 3rd (which was then about 2 weeks away).

His mom took him to the hospital this morning at 8:45am, stayed there all day (about 10 hours), and drove him home tonight (what a good mom)! Everything went well and there were no complications with the surgery.

I came over after he got back to say hi. He hurts a lot, obviously. It's really hard to see someone you love so much in pain. I really wish I could take it away from him. But thankfully the surgery is done, he just needs to heal and it will all be better from here on out (at least that's the plan).

Thank you for your prayers for Vince. Please keep praying for him to have minimal pain and a speedy recovery/rehab. We could also use financial prayers. Besides the fact that he'll have medical bills, we want to find him this ice machine to go on his knee that is supposed to majorly help his inflammation and pain. Our friends told us the machine costs about $200. Praying for a price tag much lower than that.

Thank you again!!

Before and After

I was messing with some stuff and edited this picture to have more of a haze, a soft tint, and the sun flare. Let me know what you think. I can handle some constructive criticism.



Newborn Baby

Some friends of ours had a baby in January. I asked if I could come over and practice taking newborn pictures; they said yes. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to lighting.

Engagement Pictures

Here are some engagement pictures I took Sunday. E'Lese said she likes the Anthropologie look so I tried to take the pictures and edit them with that in mind. I've never done that before and I'm hoping they turn out to her liking.
