Five years ago, I was up late...way late much like I am right now. I was 39 weeks pregnant with our first child and had a general feeling of discomfort all night accompanied with varying degrees of contractions. When morning finally arrived I decided to call my OBGYN and ask what I should do. When she said to stop by the hospital to get checked out, we thought we would just stop by and then continue on with our Anniversary. Yes, it was our 3rd anniversary! We thought the hospital was merely a pit stop before, we would have breakfast at our favorite little French Bistro in Dana Point, Ca. Well, we never got to have breakfast that day, in fact nearly twelve hours later we got a baby! Hazel Rei Montgomery was born on April 29th, 2006. We were so shocked by her early arrival but so happy and relieved to meet our first child and share our anniversary. The funny thing is that as newlyweds we thought three years was an appropriate time to wait to have children...and that is exactly to the day how long we waited...pretty amazing. Hazel, Joe and myself have a very special bond, we share a very special day! So we wish our very special Hazel Rei a most beautiful day and are so blessed to have her in our lives. She is a extra special blessing from the LORD. She is extraordinary indeed!!!!

Sunrise Service at Valley Forge Park.
Easter was gorgeous, warm and sunny...it was perfect. An awesome day to celebrate the Resurrection! We spent the day together, first with church, then baskets and hunting for eggs, and with brunch! It was a lovely day. Easter happens to be my most favorite of holidays. It is beautiful, and means so much to recollect on how much Christ did for us, and how HE has RISEN. It is quite beautiful! Plus, when you add peeps and little girls in pretty dresses and sunshine <3 We hope you all had a beautiful Easter as well!!!!

Just when you thought this was the Maxfield channel I thought I would give you all a nice dose of Hazel/Jade! Most days I'm just making it, so the camera is very low on my priority list! I'm happy to have taken a few photos of my little beauties! They are just so lovely!

Some Grandpas are cool. However, Hazel, Jade, and Maxfield really do have a COOL Grandpa. I mean, he rides a Harley, wears a cool leather jacket and motorcycle boots!! He really is cool, but is also a fun and loving Grandfather! This past week we had a blast with cool Grandpa Rick. His love for his kids, and now our kids is just amazing. He and I enjoyed eating out, having coffee, and laughing at how crazy the kids are. It was just an all around great visit! We miss him so much!!!!!!!!!!
I like this one too, with Maxfield's tongue out!!
