This week has been extremly busy starting with our anniversary on July 28, which my husband took me to Ruth Chris and my sister watched Evan for the night. We had a great time, and I appreciated Mandy so much for watching Evan during the night so that we could spend adult time together. Also, that night I recieved my anniversary gift which was the camera I have been longing for (as you know I lost my last camera in the lake). As you can see in the pictures... The balloons were a surprise for Ray from Evan and I along with his favorite a cookie cake... we have found out that Evan loves loves loves balloons! So below you will find some pictures from the first night I received my camera and the next pictures are from July 30 which was my birthday. Ray did great, since I have been reading a lot lately he got me the kindell which was a complete surprise and that night I went out with all of the girls for a nice mexican dinner to catch up on everyone's lives and babies! We had a great time, as soon as Jamie sends me the picture I will post it! Hope you all are having a great week, enjoy the pictures!
By the way Evan is pulling himself up and standing up for a few seconds without holding onto anything else! I hate to say it, but I think were close to walking!
Love all and God Bless

Today Maya Harper Hatfield decided to finally come into this world. She was due yesterday so Monika was very happy to find out this morning that little Maya was ready to come home! She was born around 6:00 pm today weighing in 6 lbs. (not exact) and 20 inches. She is beautiful and mom is doing wonderfully, as you can see in the pictures. We are so excited to finally have a girl for Evan to play with! She is a very blessed little girl to have such wonderful parents! I know you guys will do great! Congratulations we are so excited for you both and can't wait to watch her grow!!
God Bless and Love Always!
Yesterday Christopher Nixon Kestner decided to come to join the world. He is the new son of Chris and Angie Kestner, and little brother of MaKayla. Everything went great and he is a beautiful healthy little boy. We checked in on them today at the hospital, mom looks great as you can see in the picture and little Christopher is even better. Congratulations you two! He is beautiful!
God Bless and Love Always!

Ok, so recently I have not been keeping up with the blog and I of course blame it on the fact that I have no camera to post pictures (it's at the bottom of the lake) besides the one's on my mother's camera (in Texarkana) and on our phone's (I only can upload on my husband's computer that he is always using) therefore I am making an effort to have Ray when he is using his computer to upload all pictures we have from our phone's to the computer so I can go in and post them on the blog... so here we go... well start from the most recent and go from there. I'll give a description of what was going on from the beginning to the end but I probably could bet you would be able to guess why the pictures were taken and where! I hope this makes the grandma's happy...
As everyone knows that has seen Evan in person his hair looks as if we cut it on purpose to look like he has a Mohawk (we didn't of course it just grew this way) but Ray loves spiking it up after he gets out of the water at the lake especially now because it has gotten so long so it makes for a funny picture.
The next ones are from a golf tournament at Pinnacle Country Club that he and Chris Kestner played in. All proceeds when to benefit the Mercy foundation at the Mercy Hospital. He was very proud of one hole as you can see in the picture, which is sponsored by his company. They didn't win anything but had a great time for an excellent fundraiser.
The next one's are pretty easy to figure out... Fourth of July!!! We spent the entire weekend out at the lake (every weekend... lake rats of course) but this weekend was extra special for so many reason! Celebration of our freedom and rights as Americans. We all need to realize how wonderful we really have it, and take notice of what's going on in the country to make sure it stays that way!!! The weather was perfect and Evan did excellent during the firework display (he slept thru the entire show).
The next are from Sweet Aunt Mandy's birthday! We love you Aunt Mandy! We had to eat at Doe's (her favorite restaurant) and of course she wanted Evan to help her blow out the candles!
The rest are Random pictures from a few other event's that have taken place lately... hope you enjoy them!
I promise now that I am all caught up I will keep up the blog!
p.s. my birthday is coming up and I am asking for a new camera, so you will now by July 30 if my husband gets the hints or not!
Love and God bless,
