Family Update & Easter

It is finally spring around here! Our whole family is enjoying this beautiful weather!

Abby is doing great. After our last visit to St. Jude, we decided to send her back to preschool 2 days a week. She was really missing her teachers and her friends. She is absolutely loving it! She practically drags me out the door on those mornings! Abby is also very excited about her "baby brother". Now, we don't know what it is going to be yet, but she is sure it is a boy. And she prays that God will send her a baby brother every time she prays.

Speaking of the baby, I haven't posted anything in so long because I have not felt well. I have had some miserable morning sickness (that lasts all day sometimes) and have been very tired. It is improving though and hopefully in a few more weeks it will all be a memory!

Lyla is enjoying her one on one time with mama on the days Abby is in school. She misses her big sister but she loves being the center of attention during that time. Lyla has a birthday coming up soon-I can't believe she is already two. She is talking so much and has the funniest personality. This morning at breakfast she was trying to tell Abby a knock knock joke. All she would say is "knock knock", "orange" over and over. Abby thought it was a pretty funny joke anyway!

We haven't gotten our schedule from St. Jude yet but I am pretty sure her appointments will be at the beginning of May. Please keep her in your prayers!

I am very excited about Easter this year. Yes, the girls have new dresses and we will hunt eggs and eat a big meal with family but the meaning of Easter goes beyond those traditions. Jesus gave His life for us on that cross and then 3 days later, was raised from the dead. Jesus Christ conquered death and that should give all Christians reason to rejoice because it means that we too will one day conquer death. It means even more to me this year than it did last year. Some of the verses that give me the most comfort when I am afraid or worried are those referring to His resurrection.

"He is not here; for He is risen..." Matthew 28:6

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" 1 Corinthians 15:55

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

If you believe in Him (Jesus Christ), you will have an eternal home in heaven. Your earthly body may fail you, but your eternal one will not. Easter Sunday really means victory over death-not only for our Savior, but for all Christians!


  1. Morgan, I am so glad to hear how well Abby is doing and that she is enjoying preschool! Lyla is at my favorite age, they are so cute at two:) I hope you get over the morning sickness very soon. And I wish you all a very blessed and happy Easter!!

  2. Thinking of and praying for you all often:) I miss our email chats, and hope to get back to them soon when you feel better, and school calms down for me. Alyssa still talks about Abby, and I hope when our girls get older they will continue to bond and be a great support for one another. Sending you lots of love-Kellie
