Obviously, this is not a secret anymore! We wanted to share with all of you our exciting news. We are so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with another child. We can’t wait for our house to be filled with that joy again.
But this announcement comes with so many mixed emotions as it is hard to imagine adding another child to our family without Cora here with us. She would have been such a good big sister!
We are so thankful for all of our faithful prayer warriors out there! Please continue to pray along with us for a healthy baby Mac. What a miracle this new little life is!
The 4th of July stuff is out.
It looked like so much when we were sewing.
But I don’t know how long it will last.
We are still sewing.
Hopefully we will post more red, white and blue next week.
This will have to due for now.
Go to Cora’s NOW!
Have a great weekend!
Thank you so much for playing along with us. My mom and I had so much fun reading through all of your comments. What great memories and family traditions!
Here are the giveaway winners:
One red, white, and blue Cora dress
Sarah: I must say…I’ve never won a thing before in my life, so I thought I’d give this a chance! I absolutely LOVE the 4th of July dresses!! My fondest memories as a child are going with my parents to pick out the fireworks. I was always so excited to get the snaps and sparklers! I also loved making a mess with the black snakes with my brothers! We would participate in the towns activities (going to the parade and water fights and such) and then bbq with friends. We always ended the night by lighting off the fireworks. I’m so proud to say that I have passed some of these memories on to my own children. They love to go and pick out snaps and sparklers and love going to the parades! We have started a tradition of bbqing with friends and lighting fireworks as well! I love watching their faces as the fireworks go up in the air. I just hope that I’m giving them the same fond memories that my parents gave to me!Thank you for this great opportunity!!Still praying for your family in Nebraska.
One red, white, and blue girl’s t-shirt
Cherie: How fun!! This is my first time commenting. I know, shame on me!What a blessing your words are to so many, especially me! One of my favorite things about your journey is the relationship you have with your mom. I can completely relate to having a mom that you love to spend any day with. We are so blessed to have the best moms and to have such a special and close friendship with them. God is good!! You asked about family traditions…Our 4th of July family tradition is to go to my husband’s grandparents house to watch the BIG fireworks display that the school across the street puts on. My husband comes from a farming family and one of the best highlights is Grandpa’s homemade peach ice cream. By the way, I LOVE YOUR CORA DRESSES! Adorable! I just can’t seem to get my hands on them. Who knows…maybe now. :)Thank you for sharing your journey with all of us. Stay strong…I can not imagine how people do this life without our amazing God! Praise the Lord we are HIS!!
One flag onesie
Bri: I left on a service mission for my church for 18 months on July 5th, 2000. That July 4th before I left was a special one because I knew it would be the last time for a while I would be with all of my family. We went to “The Stadium of Fire” which is always a special experience. It is very patriotic and inspiring. I LOVE the 4th of July and I would LOVE to get one of your giveaway items. Thank you for sharing your life with us. I often am in tears when I read your posts. You inspire me.
Sarah, Cherie, and Bri please contact me at email@example.com with your contact information.
We will start posting our red, white, and blue stuff at Cora’s sometime this week. Keep checking back!

They taught me to be proud to be an American.
I have always loved the 4th of July.
