This past week was my Husband’s Birthday. I won’t tell how old he is (aahem, 31). He chose a favorite lil spot of ours called Rocky Cola Cafe. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is fun, & the kids love it. We also love the fact that kids eat free everyday of the week with any adult meal! Music to my ears for our family of five 🙂
We enjoyed a nice dinner and I caught some cute, humble shots while we were out. I got inspired by the artsy, vintage backdrop. I think I may have to return for a fun creative session
The restaurant is located in Uptown Whittier. I just love the quaint, spirited streets all lit up for the holidays!
To keep the kids busy until meals arrived, we indulged in the crayons. However, coloring is sooo last year. We built with them instead!
Makaila was my little muse. She loves to take pictures like Mommy. So I try to get snapshots of her in her element often. Maybe for her biography in her future published work? 😉
We recently had an experience which gave us a powerful testimony within our family and I just had to share with you all. Jeremiah was hospitalized, unexpectedly to us, mid last week. He is now home and we give all glory to God! We knew that Jeremiah was more than a conqueror. Knowing that we knew that his healing was not to be the only victory, but that He would leave an anointing on the whole unit he was in and on others! Just like his favorite bible character, David, lil guys can do big things too!
I transcribed the details of this by email to our family and friends…
Saturday Morning 12/04/2010:
I just wanted to update you all who didn’t know… As of Thursday 12/02/10 Jeremiah has been admitted to the hospital due to what doctors call Croup. It’s a respiratory condition that can affect young children and has caused him to have an awful sounding cough and breathing issues.
He started with the distinct cough Wednesday night. The next afternoon we brought him to the ER when he got a 104.5 fever and struggled breathing normally. He is now in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Kaiser Bellflower. His condition improved overall from when he initially came in, but with it being a respiratory condition his stats fluctuate throughout the day.
We are thankful for and taking full advantage of all care & procedures available to him. However, we know his full healing as well as our faith are in Our Mighty God & great Physician. He will come out of this whole & strong. This sickness in not allowed to remain in his body! Greater is he that created life and is in Jeremiah, than any sickness in this world!
He will be evaluated for release today. Please join your faith with us not only for his release, but for full healing and correction when when get him home and care for him there.
UPDATE Saturday Afternoon 12/04/2010:
The doctor gave me the news that they may have found something in Jeremiah’s blood culture and will confirm later in the day. I come against this in JESUS NAME!
