Bates family update

We have been getting a lot of messages asking about the Bates family to see if they are ok from the fire  in Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge Tennessee. They live north of there  so it doesn't effect  them so please keep praying for  all who is effected.
As we have been told by a family friend that there was a fire in their house. It was in the laundry room and everyone is okay. 

The family does asked that we pray for those that have been affected by the fire along with the firefighters that are working hard to put out the blaze.

Journey to parenthood: Two months to go

It's hard to believe that John and Alyssa will be welcoming their second daughter in the next two months. We are so excited for the couple and Allie! 

This month, we will be starting our baby games like we have done with Bradley, Allie, Carson, Kaci and Brooklyn. We will not have the Gender game though because John and Alyssa already revealed the gender of their daughter when they announced their pregnancy.

It's hard to imagine that baby Girl will be featured in our January Birthday cover next month. 

This month, we have about three more updates until we move to weekly updates and we are so excited to start them. 

Who else is excited for baby girl to arrive? 

Looking forward to Christmas

Tori and Erin sit down and talk about what they are looking forward to Christmas.
