Cancer, cancer, everywhere

So in 2004 my Father-in-Law, Stephen, died of cancer.
In 2006 my Grandpa Richards died of cancer
In 2007 my cousin Stephen died of cancer.
In 2009 my uncle Kevin was diagnosed with cancer.
Now in 2010, my cousin's son Spencer was diagnosed with cancer.
And possibly another one of my cousins, Becky (cousin Stephen's sister), may have cancer. She'll be having a biopsy on Monday.

It is so sad to see my family members go through trials but I know it will only make them stronger.

To my family members, we pray for you daily and hope you can feel them them.

We love you!

A few pictures

Evelyn-February 15-Look at those eyes!

I found her like this after a short trip to Grandma & Grandpa's. Too funny =)

January in her blessing dress

End of December

On our way home from the hospital. She was so little!

December 12 - 1 day old and perfect!

Hours old after her first bath

I hope you all enjoy pictures because that will be the majority of this blog. At least what I put on here. :)


Hello blogging world!!

I have never been very good at keeping a journal. Even while I was on my mission, I didn't keep a record of my thoughts and feelings, or what happened during the day. This blog is an attempt to change my ways. I hope that through this blog, I'll be able to share my/our life with family and friends. I might even get Laura to write a little bit. If I ask very very nicely.

Evelyn is 2 months old now, she'll be 11 weeks tomorrow!! I can't believe how fast it has gone. I can't really remember life without her. I know that I am very blessed to have a healthy daughter. From everything that I have learned in my classes in school, there is a lot that can go wrong in fetal development. It truly is a miracle that everything goes right and that babies are born every day without any problems.

We have a couple of little trips planned in the next week or two. The first will be a quick trip to Idaho for my cousin's wedding. The second is a weekend in southern California to see Laura's Grandma and Grandpa Baxter. They are flying us down there so that they can see Evelyn. These trips should give us a good indicator of how our trip to Mexico is going to go. Evelyn's Uncle Cory comes home from his mission in just over a month and we are going to Cancun in April with Laura's family.

That is what is happening in the Yancey household right now. Keep tuned into the Yancey Family Adventures for more updates and pictures.
