Levi One Year.....

Levi Gordon.....
...is a happy, boisterous one year old little boy full of spark!
 Levi never misses a beat, he’s always wanting to know who and what is around him. His curious attitude is driven by his love for “vrooms” with his Daddy. He is always wondering how “that” works! 

 His magical hazel brown eyes can tell stories 
that anyone could get lost in, 
and he’s always looking to give someone a good laugh.

Levi and his Daddy are Best Buddies, wherever one is found, you’ll find the other. His cuddles are rare these days, because he’s always on the go. The hugs are usually saved for Mommy at “ni-ni” time, but whenever he gives them, he makes them count!

 Levi tries to make anyone he crosses smile, 
even as a baby he was always giving or looking for a smirk.
 His hollers and yells can be heard for miles! 
He always has something to say! 
When he actually starts to talk, 
the stories he tells will be full of adventure and imagination! 
He’s one amazing little boy!

wow how that first year has flown by!
Hugs to my sweet little nephew!
Auntie Kelsy :)

Deb Fit for Photos.....

the following was written by deb....

I opened an email from Scott Colby, 
an online personal trainer also known as the Abs Expert. 
 I've followed his workout and nutrition advice for a long time now,
but this particular email with the subject line of “Fit for Photos” really interested me. 
 Scott talked about his 35 day program 
that would give all the workouts and nutrition
to follow for 35 days, then at the end, 
participants would have their very own photo shoot to show off all their hard work.
 2 reasons I decided to do this was, 
#1 - I was going to turn the big “50” in March 2014,
#2 – When Valerie Bertinelli posed on a magazine cover
in a bikini at age 49, and looked fantastic,
I told myself before or at age 50, I would have photos taken of me in a bikini.  
So, I signed up and told myself no matter what, I would stick to it. 
 It was not easy, by any means, but it was doable. 
 The first 2 to 3 weeks were hard because even though I was sticking to it, 
I was not really seeing the results I wanted. 
 And there were obstacles, like when my basement took in water 
and I spent 3 days bailing it out. 
 Another was when I had 10 straight days of tennis matches,
but I still had to get my workouts in.  
But, Scott knows what he is doing. 
 He set us participants up in teams to keep us accountable, 
and required us to log in our food and workouts.  
So day 35 came, I had my photo shoot scheduled, and my bikinis purchased. 
 I tried them on, and oh my gosh,
I was amazed and so very happy with what I saw. 
 I was toned and defined, and what Scott said would happen had happened! 
 Add a spray tan and I was ready to go. 
 My photographer Kelsy, 
who also is my hairdresser and an awesome one at that, 
gave me one of the most rewarding and fun times I have ever had for myself.
 I felt beautiful, sexy and fit!  
Yes I had worked hard and yes I had been frustrated at times, 
but it was all WORTH IT!!  
And not only for the photos, but also for the way I feel and look now.

Caleb & Nicole Maternity........

Caleb & Nicole met while attending Wayne State College
 at the Newman center and dated for a year and half. 
They tied the knot on July 21, 2012. 
The past year has been a wild ride –
 college graduation, marriage, buying a house, adding a puppy, 
and soon their first little baby boy will be joining the mix! 

1 Samuel 1:27-28 
"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted my request. "So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD."


Baby Hanke will be joining a small family 
with Caleb’s brother being the only Uncle. 
Both sets of Grandparents are
 very excited and anxious for his arrival! 
And this will be the first Great-grandchild for Nicole’s grandmother. 
Caleb and Nicole are looking forward
 to the adventure ahead of them,
 and thank God daily for the many blessing
 He has given them in the first year of marriage. 

....meet the new little guy in his newborn shoot
comming soon!!!
