Hi friends... just a quick note to remind you that we will be heading into another MRI with Caleb on Tuesday morning starting at 8:00 am. We would love your prayers for peace, safety and healing. We will find out results Wednesday morning and will keep you posted.

Thank you!

Birthday and Update

Caleb has just turned 7! We can't believe it! We had a fun-filled weekend full of celebrations. We had a friend party at the gym where Caleb and Annelise take gymnastics. They had a blast on the rope swing, foam pit, trampolines, and obstacle courses. We also had a Henderson family gathering and a Tenpenny one at Ma's. Caleb got to enjoy many of his favorite desserts and foods- fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, Famous Dave's BBQ, chocolate cupcakes, key lime pie, mint chocolate chip ice cream (Purity of course!), and Ma's chocolate trifle. Wow! (not all at once!) What a treat-filled weekend!
We wanted to let you know that Caleb's next MRI is April 2nd with results the next day on the 3rd. That's in less than 2 weeks. We will be having another look at the tumor before making a final decision on treatment at this time. We can't thank you enough for joining us in this step of faith. We would love prayers for the following:

-for the tumor to have not grown in size since his last scan in November.
--a miracle!! That our child might be unscathed! “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You.” (Mark 14:36)
-for unity
-for God’s will (Mark 14:36)
-for peace that passes all understanding would guard our hearts in Christ Jesus         (Phil. 4:7)
-that He would sustain us moment by moment (Isaiah 46:4)
-wisdom – that as we are faced with decisions that we would hear a voice behind us saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” (Isaiah 30: 21)
-for growth- that we might rejoice in our sufferings which produces perseverance, character, hope – (Rom. 5:3-4)
–that our faith may be proved genuine and result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:7)

getting a hug from Daddy - Caleb of course got more fun legos- his favorite! He also got a science kit that I know he will love and his very own Nintendo DS! He also got some great gift cards and money that he can't wait to spend. He (and Annelise) are loving all his toys.

and another hug from KG and Jim

Annelise even got a few presents as well! and a hug from Uncle Chase!

Here are the kids at gymnastics. Each of these guys and gals mean so much to us. It was fun to see them having a ball!!

make a wish!

And here we are at Ma's for birthday- it was Kayla's birthday too! and Annelise and I got to go to her 1st wedding shower at Harpeth Hills the same day. The count down is on- May will be here before we know it!
Thank you to all who made Caleb's birthday so special.
