two.jpgI know she’d love to blog this herself, but I just can’t wait and I know you all are dying to know!

Misty got to the hosptial at ten ’til 12 and had baby Zach at 12:11.

Yeah.  Running a little tight!

They drove 85 at times getting there.  Whew!  Misty said she just tried to stay relaxed and closed her eyes…they only hit a “few slick spots here and there”. 

She got what she hoped for.  What a woman!   I would have been freaking out!

He was 7 pounds, 1 ounce. (I think), and was squalling when I called at 12:30 to see if they made it over okay.

These are two PROUD sisters about to hit the slopes!


Congratulate them!

    What a woman! No time for an epidural on this one!

    That is the CUTEST pic of my girls!! Thanks for posting the update for me.

    By the way, I didn’t want an epidural at all, and my goal was to wait it out so I wouldn’t be hooked to Pitocin to “speed things up” either. Well, that worked a little better than I had planned! In hindsight, if we had left about an hour earlier, I would have been much more calm 🙂

    Honestly, though I think the actual labor contractions were much more tolerable without the pitocin. That just made them so much stronger than they had to be for me, so I’m really glad it went as it did.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
