A New Baby

Dennis and Mistin have once again been blessed with a new baby. So that makes two right now. They have a 10 weeks old boy and a two week old girl. The girl, I will call her SierraMist, a nickname, was born premature and is very tiny but cute. Once again I am not allowed to name the babies except for nicknames.

This is Misty, isn't she super tiny!!

Me, SierraMist, and my Rootbeer last night

Two New Additions

Dennis and Mistin did end up losing Quimby. But there is still a chance they might be able to adopt her later. We have had a new addition to the family. I can only share pictures because of confidentiality. He is a wonderful little man and Dennis is really loving having another guy around.

The last addition would be that I now have a new roommate. Her name is Amy Boyd. She graduated from West Coast Bible College in May. She is friends with some crazy girls I knew at Northland and who I went to Mexico with right before finishing school. We are getting along great so far and I can't imagine any problems.

Off to the Cabin

The weekend of October 15th and 16th our church took a trip up to Northern Minnesotta. It was a blast and a half. I got to drive a boat for the first time and I spent the whole day fishing. Here are some pictures of our adventures:

Colleen and my mom hit it off right away.

Kaylan and Andy have father daughter time.

Me driving the boat-less than a week after surgery

Kelsey and Lauren fishing...Kelsey caught the only fish.

He was just posing for a pic...not how he always wears his hat!!

They got a little too far out so we pulled them behind us.

Weight Loss Update

Well it has been 4 weeks and 4 days since I had my surgery. As of the last time I weighed myself I had lost 32 pounds. Praise the Lord!! My recovery has been a little shaky even though I have been back to work since only a week after my surgery. I had my first doctor's visit and they finally figured out what was causing the continual nausea. So that is fixed which I am very thankful for. I met with my dietician on Wednesday and was told I must eat more. I have never been told that in my 25 years!! Here are some things would appreciate prayer for:

1. I am able to drink more liquids
2. I can get more protein in my limited diet
3. I will be bale to eat more
4. I will have the energy to exercise

If I am able to do the first three, number four will work itself out. Thank you to all of those who have been praying. I will try and update once a month to keep you posted.
