Loving Reading!

She climbed up in my bed with a good book :) Not quite asleep but falling asleep after reading for the last 30 min. At the beginning of June I only hoped she would read well let alone develop a love for reading! Brent you rock, I have no idea how you helped connect all those dots but you did! Thank you for teaching her to read real books! 
Val, she loves the read aloud time you have in class and all the stories, tonight she sat outside around the campfire with her daddy and read to him! Thank you for fostering a love for reading in her. You guys are so greatly impacting our girlies lil life and heart- we are so grateful and thankful!!! 
CC you have worked hard my sweet, sweet girl, we are so pround of you!!!

End of Summer Review

  As our second summer in South Carolina is coming to a close it's been an unusually hot a record breaker.... Thankfully that hasn't been such a big deal, we have amazing friends that just happen to be neighbors with pools! We have a course that much there over the last few months! Our summer has pretty much much consisted of short trips, visitors the pool, camps, Core, the pool, zoo, the pool =) you get the picture

It has been an eventful summer with big change us. Of course I think that's how life tends to roll out- change is constant. Probably one of the biggest changes for us is that come the 19th all of our kiddos will be in public & private school for the first time. For who know me you, this is a big! Long and short of it is that the timing has come together and we're all excited about new ventures

~Braeton has grown like crazy, enjoyed lazy summer days, slinging and summer camps.
~Cianne has been hard at work. She has working with Brent Peterson, Core Possibilities- HUGE shout out! Straight up amazing that she has accomplished so much, particularly in the area of reading. Brent has been an advocate and in many ways our own guidance counselor for education. She has done plenty of swimming, horse back riding and hanging out with good friends, always on the Go!
~Mikelle has lost her first tooth I have a feeling she will be trying to break the tooth fairy's bank this coming year. She is super excited about school and can't wait to learn read!  Kelz is always up before everyone, dressed and ready to go she loves her doggies and pretend. I am looking forward to seeing this little ones sweet personality emerge even more.
~Owen is truly a fun kid who loves his brother and sisters, he is his Daddy's little shadow. Just 2 pounds shy of Mikelle he is a little tank and happy to be in the mix. CC class this summer is near Trader Joes and Owey truly loves to shop there, I think I may a foodie in this one. 
~Luke stays busy between work and all of us!  I am sure he is hoping to get a bit of golf in this year. He will be 37 in just a few days =)
As for me this will be a different year and I am not only at peace but super excited as this will give each of us unique opportunities to Bloom, the best is yet to come! Speaking of we are coming up on 15 years this September, its hard to believe! I am so very grateful, cheers to many more baby!

All the best for the rest of the summer!

Merry Christmas

Dear Family & Friends,

         2014 has been a year of immense change for our family, the good and the very hard on this journey to forever. In late May the Davis family relocated to Columbia SC. And not long after mom and Dad joined us in September. Why Columbia is always the question, it is a multi faceted: to care for our family in a new way, for new beginnings, to church plat with the Greers ~ that is just the short answer =). While we are enjoying becoming connected in this new community and anticipating all these new ventures the unexpected loss of my father, Chris, on Nov 25 , after just a few months of relocating is certainly a blow to our hearts. He has battled brain cancer for nearly 14 years, this Sept after finding the tumor had returned he underwent a second surgery at Duke. Then suffered a heart attack  2 days before Thanksgiving and was instantly  with His Lord. He is survived by his loving wife, Cindy, Cameron and Ally and their daughter Rowan, Brandon, Luke, myself and our four  children,  Braeton, Cianne, Mikelle and Owen. He was greeted by many who he loved that went before Him, I am sure Micah was among the first! He has run the race and finished well, the last 14 years have been very challenging yet in all he did he strove to honor the Lord, he faith never waivered and complaint never meet his lips but rather loud songs and whistling.
         This is not your standard greeting but then this is just where our journey finds us this     Christmas. In the midst of grief the giving of Christ through his birth, life death and resurrection give Faith and bring Hope to our hearts. May that Faith and Hope be yours as well both  now and Forever. 
                      Thank you ever so much for your love, care and support, they have  been so very  meaningful, we truly have felt  carried by your prayers during this time. Thank you for walking this road with us, couldn't have imagined going it without you all!   
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
With Love,
~Luke & Kriscinda, Braeton, Cianne, Mikelle & Owen,  ~Cindy and Brandon~

Caring for Momma

Please help us care for our Momma.
Many have asked how you can you help and right now funds would be a blessing for Momma. Dad hasn't qualified for Life Insurance due to his past medical history and thus between medical bills and final epenses any contribution would be a significant blessing.
Thank you so very much!


Dear Ones
There is no easy way to write these words as our hearts are flooded with emotion. We are shocked, saddened and hopeful ,all at the same ~today  Dad went today to be with His Lord. He fought and battled brain cancer for 14 years and then today he passed after a heart attack likely brought on by a pulmonary embolism.

He had taken a turn for the better and in the midst of his very hard journey was able to have some sweet time with mom, going out for
pizza and just being home together. The family was all able to be together in Sept. which we are all grateful for. He never has wavered in his faith and his hope was that others would see Jesus in his journey as was his,prayer this very morning with mom over breakfast.

I cannot say that the road has been easy and that there are not regrets as we have been losing Dad for many years and thus it has made it hard to remember all that Dad was and what he strove to be. Yet, despite the questions that may roll, the suffering he endured for so long, the sadness at the many years lost, we choose Hope~ for a day and a future we cannot see this side of Heaven. We choose to trust that  one day because of the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus all wrong will be righted and the life we could not have with Dad here all of eternity will plenty make up for.

On behalf of the family, thank you for your continued care and prayers. We are ever grateful.

~~Details for the Memorial service will be forth coming.
