Quinton Oliver Wall

Quinton Oliver was born Tuesday September 20th at 6:39 pm weighing 5lbs and 8oz. He lived for 27 wonderful minutes during which he had one eye open, sneezed quite a few times ( apparently just like me:) and cuddled into me to get closer, it was amazing! Then peacefully went to be with the Lord and his big brother Noah. Thank you for all the prayers they really helped!

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Grace of God cannot keep you
Where the Arms of God cannot support you
Where the Riches of God cannot support your needs
Where the Power of God cannot endow you.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you
Where the Wisdom of God cannot teach you
Where the Army of God cannot protect you
Where the Hands of God cannot mold you.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Love of God cannot enfold you
Where the Mercies of God cannot sustain you
Where the Peace of God cannot calm your fears
Where the Authority of God cannot overrule you.

The Will of God will never take you
Where the Comfort of God cannot dry your tears
Where the Word of God cannot feed you
Where the Miracles of God cannot be done for you
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

Wedding Day

So as sad as it may seem, this is the only picture I have of Vikk & Chris' wedding!
Waiting on one of Vikk's friends to show us the ones she took. In this day and age of digital cameras I cannot believe that I am starving for pics!

They wedding was wonderful, a little cold but that is to be expected in March.
Vikk was a gorgeous bride! I know she would be!

More pics to come when I see some!

From Jolene and Hank

Thank you to everyone who has prayed, loved and supported us as we waited for the ultrasound today. Unfortunately God has chosen to take this little one home to him when the time comes. The baby for sure has Meckel Gruber and will not make it much past delivery. This is so hard. Please continue to pray for us as we walk through this valley all over again... And we continue to pray for healing for our little one

Zander is One!

Zander and Papa...a great team!

Hank, Jo and Zander in the Mayan Riviera Dec 23, 2010

Zander and Auntie Vikk relaxing at the resort

Z snuggling with Uncle Chris

Feb 7th was Zander's first birthday! time has really gone by so fast.
I had forgotten how much babies change every single day.
Life has been really great since this little guy was born. Holding him for the first time was an amazing miracle but little did I know that every day with him would be just that!
I love being a Nana and I hope Z feels the love.
Zander LOVES his Papa...I knew he would, how can a kid help but love a guy who will spend the whole day on the floor with him, playing!
It has been a joy to watch how he learns to interact with different people. Z would always cry with Vikki's fiance Chris and I kept telling Chris...just wait, in time he will be your best friend. Well, now he is always playing games with Chris across the supper table and can often be found sitting on his lap.
Even Uncle Pierre was able to hold him the other day!
Mostly he is not shy at all, just needs a few minutes to warm up to some people.
He is toddling around everywhere, done with nursing, getting teeth all the time it seems!
He was awesome in Mexico, everybody loved him!
The expressions that he has are priceless! I love watching him find new things in the house and just seeing what he will do with them!

Oh, and the personality that is coming through!
the other day Jo had us over for supper and I got ready to leave, Z crawls after me and waves and says "ta-ta"...but then Dave opened the door and walked out---Zander howled! He held out him hand and cried so hard his whole body shook! wow...he did not want Papa to leave!

I am really looking forward to going for walks with him this summer. He will not just sleep the whole time, I hope he loves the outdoors as much as he did last year!
Well that is a long rambling post, see you next time!
