Happy Thanksgiving!

Abraham and I are enjoying a relaxing, lazy Thanksgiving morning today. We slept in, made a breakfast of eggs and pancakes and have been watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for the past 2 hours. It has been a nice morning, although Daddy isn't with us cause he went fishing :( We are missing him. But Abraham and I have been talking all morning about those things that we are thankful for. Here are a few things that have come up in conversation:

- clothes
- house
- healthy heart
- eyes, ears, mouth
- toys
- friends
- our family
- our new baby!
- Daddy and Momma
- Abraham
- strong muscles
- food
- Mustangs! :)
- Mommy and Daddy's good jobs

We are eternally thankful for all the blessings that God has given to our family. He is good all the time! We thank HIM for you and for the blessings that you are in our lives.
What are YOU thankful for today??

Prayer Request

Please pray!
We put a bid on this totally cute Rancher yesterday and are waiting to hear back from the sellers. This house is perfect for us - 4 bedrooms, hard wood floors, great yard, basement, and is in move in condition. Please pray with us that if this is the place God has for us that all will go smoothly. Thanks! :)

Birthday Pictures

My mom and I went to Picture People today and had Abraham's 4 year old pictures taken. Oh my head! I don't know whose child this is but he was quite the comedian. He had the photographer in stitches! There were quite a few to choose from, of course, but these are the 3 we came away with.
Ahh.. my sweet boy. Where have these 4 years gone? Weren't you just my 4 lb 6 oz baby boy coming home from the hospital? You have grown so much and have become such a big boy. I am proud of the boy you have become. I look forward to many more years of being your Momma! :)

Answered prayers for Stellan

Unexpectedly this sweet little boy above, Stellan from MckMomma's blog, had to have heart surgery today. His heart completely stopped much to his momma's horror and the doctor decided it was the time to perform surgery to stop his SVT.
What an answer to prayer all the saints got a little while ago when MckMomma posted this post about Stellan's miracle!
Thank you Father for the way that you have met this family in their moment of need and answered their biggest prayers for their sweet boy. You are truly the Great Physician and we rejoice that you saw fit to heal Stellan! Go God!! :)

The Ragan 3 + 1 more in June!!

Our Heavenly Father has seen fit to bless our family yet again with another baby! We are due in early June - I'm about 9+ weeks now. He allowed us to get pregnant without medical intervention, for which I am very grateful for :) Please pray with us for an "uneventful, normal" pregnancy (whatever that might look like!)

Happy 4th Birthday Abraham!

We celebrated Abraham's birthday last weekend at Chuck E. Cheese - kids love it, parents hate it! :)
Abraham's friends from day care were able to come as well as his "best friends", his cousins Alex and Chloe. We had fun playing on all the games and eating chocolate cake. He got lots of great presents -- more cars, just what the boy needs :) It was a fun afternoon.

Yes, it's MY birthday!

High fiving Mimi - they share a bday so we sang to them both.

James and Nicholas got Abraham this really cool green Mustang that plays "Life is a Highway" which is one of Abraham's favorite songs.


Momma, me and Kari

Family hug :)

Ahoy Matey! Trick or Treating 2009

We had one busy weekend this past weekend. Grandma Kay and Grandpa John came up to visit for Abraham's birthday. They arrived early Saturday morning and we got to spend some good times with them. Kay went with Abraham and I trick or treating with our friends, The May's. Other than being rained on, we had a great time together!

ARGHHH! Ahoy Matey!

Abraham tuckered out about 45 minutes into trick or treating. Here he is sitting on this woman's stoop, picking out candy! :)

Grandma Kay braved the rain with us -- she's a good Grandma! :)

Is this not the CUTEST little pirate ever??
