Happy New Year....

2010 has been wonderful! We actually had a really uneventful year. We did celebrate and announce our first son and we are currently awaiting his arrival. I will be 40 weeks tomorrow on New Years Day. We will just have to wait and see. I'm not anxious or to the point where he has to come or else! I actually feel grace with this baby. With the first there is nothing else but waiting on the baby. With the second, we were occupied with being in Florida and now this time is just occupied with 2 other little girls and everything else.
We are looking forward to 2011. Jacob will be traveling once a month with Onething Regionals. He loves it.
We will celebrate 5 years of marriage in April.
Ta will be April. Wow, I can't believe it.
Kam will be April and I can't believe that either.
We are looking at a vacation in April, either to New England or to California. Haven't chosen the place yet...but we're excited.
Also, Onething has a tentative Alaska conference in June. If they do, Harper and I will tag along...and than we will spend a few days after site seeing. The girls will stay with my mom.
And of course we will welcome our first son Harper Caid sometime soon!

We pray that everyone has a safe and happy New Year!

Christmas Pics

Here are just a few Christmas Pictures.
1. The Girls at the table eating breakfast....Yes, I allowed them to have 1 cookie that they made...for breakfast
2. All of the girls presents from Mommy and Daddy...we had another Christmas later with Nana...and I think they got twice the stuff!
3. Ta showing us her cookie...sorry!
4. Kamy showing us her cookie...and one messy face!
5. Our tree with our gifts....

Christmas Eve Pics

We bought the girls TOMS pink glitter shoes for Christmas and they opened them on Christmas Eve so they could wear them to church. If your not familiar with TOMS...just check them out at They are trendy shoes and expensive but, when you purchase a pair of shoes they make another pair for someone in another country. Someone who doesn't have shoes....So, its really worth it!

I can't believe Christmas is coming to a close! What a day....and so much fun with the kids. We told Ta last night to come and wake us up in the morning and tell us it was time to open up presents. So, at 7:30am she walks into our room! We made her crawl into bed with us, until Kamy woke up and to just get a few more minutes of sleep.
We finally got up at 8. The girls opened there stockings and than they were starving so, they had breakfast. And by 9am all of the presents were opened! Jake and I put "Frosty the snow man" on for the girls to a cup of coffee and began opening our presents. We ate a huge brunch....and than the kids took a nap. Nana, came with gifts and we had a 2nd Christmas! Needless to say the girls had more presents than they knew what to do with and more princess stuff than Target!
Jake cooked dinner....which was kinda a first. I just didn't want to feel the pressure of a huge dinner at 39 weeks pregnant. I cooked Thanksgiving and forgot a few main ingredients! I did however make the came from Southern Living was amazing... Jake did an awesome job....I mean quality and classy!
Now, were in the waiting game...for baby Harper to arrive. I'm excited to not be pregnant for a long long time!
On a side note.....a little exert from today, while opening presents, Taylor really wanted the full set of Disney Princess dolls from Target. They have the look of a Barbie but are princesses. We opened all of our presents and had Ta open this present last...when she opened it...she said "thats what I'm talking about" over again. Pretty priceless if you ask me (thats what video cameras are for!)
Merry Christmas from Jacob, Lacy, Taylor and Kamdyn

Happy Christmas Eve!

As I blog, it is snowing outside. Were suppose to get a dusting to 1 inch. Last year at this time, we already had some where between 5 inches on the ground and it was still coming down hard. It was the largest snow fall in like 50 year for KC on Christmas eve and Christmas day.
I absolutely love Christmas in KC. It is beautiful. The Plaza is beautiful, Overland Park, Ward, just so classy at Christmas!
I am 39 weeks pregnant and we are just in the waiting game now. Not really sure if he will come early or late. Were ready and getting excited!
Christmas is all ready, presents are wrapped, brunch and dinner planned. Jake will be doing the cooking this year. He is super excited and I am actually surprised that I am allowing him to take full control of the food. Sometime, I have a control issue! I will be making the dessert though...Its from my all time favorite magazine "Southern Living." I'm super bumped!
Tonight, we will take the kids to a giant puppet show at a church. They are telling the story of Jesus with puppets after that we will attend the FCF Christmas service. I love Christmas eve services. I've grown up going and just absolutely love the songs and the time to celebrate Jesus' birth. I hope everyone has a great day....
Happy Christmas Eve!!!!

38 weeks and Christmas!

I am 38 weeks today...I still can't get over how fast this is going. We are all getting excited to meet our son and brother "Harper." I'm excited to have this baby at crawl into my bed after and have my mom take the girls! I'm excited to have Debbie Perry as my midwife....she is an amazing Godly woman, who's been doing this for decades! I'm excited for them to meet him when he is born and for them to give him the bear we made at "Build a Bear." Exciting times in the Ferrell home!

We started Christmas week off with Friday night Christmas lights...we drove around and looked at Christmas lights. Saturday, we took the girls to see the Nutcracker for the 2nd year in a row. We are actually looking into getting Ta,now that she is 3 into the Kansas City Ballet. She takes ballet now, but she seems really interested and this would give her the chance to dance in the Nutcracker. Kam, wasn't as cooperative this year as last. But it worked and she will be better next year. Jake and Harper will stay home! Thank you Nana, for a wonderful night! Today, we baked sugar cookies again. This time we did it all as a family...Jake, Ta, Kam and myself. We will ice the cookies tomorrow. We have something planned for each day...I love Christmas! Friday, we will bake our "Happy Birthday Jesus" cake and attend Forerunner's Christmas Eve Service!
Merry Christmas Week!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

December 17, marks a remarkable woman's Nanie! When I was growing up, we always spelt it Nana...but now she refers to herself as Nanie, because my mom refers to herself as Nana!

I won't tell your age I promise.....

I grew up with in 2 miles of my Nanie. So, needless to say we have memories, memories and many, many stories! We had so much fun...going to the beach, riding bikes, playing school (Mrs Blackbottom), doing hair, swimming, watching Topper and just hanging out!

She taught me how to drive at 14, which when your think thats awesome, my parents did not...but I did!

She is a Godly woman, who loves Jesus and taught me even when I was young to always "Pray for a parking space" and I do...every time I go some where...the mall, grocery store, etc etc....I pray for a good space and it really works, every time! It taught me early on that Jesus really does care even in the small things and he does say be in prayer always!

Nana or Nanie, I love you and you mean the world to me....Happy Birthday. Thank you for all the wonderful years and years to come....! I hope your day is filled with Joy and Love.....That the Lord would shine his face on you tomorrow....!

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Jacob, Taylor and I took a ministry trip to Wilmington, Ohio back in September 2008. We randomly met through Myspace....Robyn and Larry Morris who through blood, sweat, tears and finances, have started the WHOP (Wilmington House of Prayer.) They invited us to come for a conference. Jake preached and lead worship. We weren't really sure why we went but we felt connect instantly and knew the Lord was doing something in Wilmington and with our friendship.
At the time they didn't have a building, they were sharing space with a church and praying for a place.
Within the past two years, they have 11 churches in the area that support the house of pray and now have a building that is open and people are praying/worshiping 24/7.

We stayed in touch and this past September 2010, Robyn and Larry came to Kansas City for a visit. They were able to stay with us and we reconnected.....and just felt like we didn't miss a beat!

Anyways.......long story short...Just want the show, conservative or liberal. I cried, felt the Holy Spirit and cried a little more.....!

Sunday, December 12, 2010


Our first snow happened last night...I didn't think it would stick but, it did. About an inch was on the ground this am when we woke up! The kids were so excited to go and took about 30 mins to get dressed and about 30 mins outside...until they were freezing!

Christmas Cookies

We made Christmas cookies.....and the girls loved it!


These are pictures from the last of the leaves! My mom, Ta and Kam loved playing in them after Jake racked them up. We counted a total of 70+ bags of the ones that were mulched into the grass!

Big Sisters

We took Taylor and Kamdyn to the Build a Bear Workshop today in the mall. I wanted them to make a bear for their baby brother Harper. We let them choose everything, bear, clothing, shoes, name etc...etc...and they both gave it a heart. If you have ever done a build a bear than you know what I'm talking about! They actually did a really good job working together on it. Its a cream bear with a t-shirt that say's "Its a boy." They picked out "boy" skinny jeans and black converse shoes! He's already styling.... We named him "blue bear." So, when Harper arrives they can give him this bear.
We also made T-shirts last week that say "big sister 1" and "big sister 2" on them. We still have to put our hand prints on the back. Hopefully, we will get to that this week! When Harper is born they can wear the t-shirts.
We have to know find two little presents from Harper to his sisters!
I can't believe I am 37 weeks. I am currently considered full term and that means we can now deliver at home with Debbie (our amazing midwife). We had a home birth planned with Kamdyn but, most of you know the story. So, we didn't get to do our home birth but, instead we had her at a birthing center in Cape Coral, Florida. Which was amazing, beautiful and did I say amazing! Taylor, was born in the hospital and it wasn't bad but it felt so dirty and just not what we wanted. So, needless to say I am so excited to have Harper at home and to not have to go any where but here, no bags to pack...nothing!
We are pretty much ready for Christmas. Jake will be out of town tomorrow but, not over night...just in case!
Sunday, the former leader of the Assembly of God church will be at IHOP. They are holding a 12 hour prayer meeting for the poor. He will be busy with over seeing the 6pm-12pm. The following Saturday we are headed to the Nutcracker again. Last year, Taylor sat completely still for 2 hours and she still talks about going. I wonder what Kamdyn will do?!?

The Kiddos.....
1. Ta got to put the star on the tree this year!
2. Kam didn't want her picture taken!
3. Both the girls didn't want their picture taken!

Tuesday, November 30, 2010


I just realized, that the whole month of November will be slipping by, if I do not blog tonight! What a busy and fast month. We had fall parties, Jake was gone every weekend except for Thanksgiving weekend and of course Thanksgiving.
We celebrated Thanksgiving at our house this year. It was the first and oh so much fun cooking all of the items....I did do one stupid thing....with this preggo brain...I think it just gets worse with the amount of pregnancies! I was so excited to try out a new cheesecake recipe, cranberry cheesecake. I found it on Pioneer Woman, so I knew it would be good! Well, after I put it in the oven, I started to take a picture because I was so proud.....and totally remembered I forgot to put 3 eggs in the pie! Yes, 3 whole eggs...needless to say the pie was OK, it did have a thousand cracks.
We are doing well as a family. I am now 35 1/2 weeks pregnant. I can't believe that in a week and a half I will be full term!
We made "big sister" t-shirts, so when Harper arrives the girls can sport there homemade shirts.
We already got our Christmas tree and have completely finished shopping for the girls! They will be so surprised at Christmas, we can't wait. It was so much fun shopping for them with Jake. I know he kept thinking that next year there will be some boy toys in this cart!
I have a baby shower on Saturday and than after that, we are going to Illinois. Jake will be preaching at his grandma's church on Sunday. He also wants to take the girls to "Candy Cane Lane" a place that he would go to when he was little. Its full of lights and fun things. And of course we will be celebrating Christmas with the grandparents!
Well Happy End of November!
I have new pics they are saved on Jake's Mac...I will post them soon!

30 weeks preggo, with #3

I can't believe I am 30 weeks already!
I've posted a picture. My choice of clothes at this moment are long trendy shirts from Forever21 with leggings. I am so happy leggings are back in style because they are so comfortable. I dislike with a capital "D" pregnant pants...with those panels! I'm having more and more braxton hicks contractions, but I completely expect to be 1 week late. My official due date is 1/1/11.

28 weeks and all is well!

All is well with the Ferrell household!
Everyone is healthy and happy.
Jake is out of town and returns this evening from Auburn, Alabama. He preached the word at The University of Auburn on Friday and Saturday. Next weekend he is headed to his home town. We were suppose to be going for his 10 year reunion but that has been canceled due to the lack of response! He did graduate with a class of I think 60people. Small I know, since I graduated with a class of 400! He will be preaching at a House Of Prayer on Saturday and a church on Sunday. I keep him pumped with vitamin C!
The girls are doing well! Getting big....Taylor, is 3 1/2 and is as smart (brain) as ever. I just started reading a new book called "Shepherding a child's heart." It is so good and I would highly recommend it for parents! Its about shepherding the heart of a child correctly and not just disciplining because of the child's actions. The heart is the wellspring of life!
She loves everything princess. She loves her ballet class....its every Saturday from 8:45-9:30am. Her class paints a prophetic picture for the first few minutes, than they dance to christian songs and learn new ballet moves. She loves it! now 1 1/5. I'm not sure where the time is going but its moving fast! She is a little Missie. She loves getting into things, not listening and saying "NO." Her vocabulary is unbelievable. She has at least 30 words that are clear in pronunciation, that's what happens when you have a older sister who is a communicator! She has started potty training herself....yes really! She tells me when, but we haven't gotten the going on the potty down yet.
We are going to the apple farm this week to pick apples, so I will have new pictures!
As for me, I am doing well. I am now 28 weeks preggo with Harper. I can't believe how fast this is going! Between my mom and I, Harper has so many clothes. I just buy them when there on sale or clearance, hang them in the closet and say nothing to Jake! Just kidding, I just wait to tell him....for a few days. He opened Harper's closet and said "babe, I didn't know you had all of these clothes for him already!" Yep....but girls clothes are way cuter!
Well, thats about it! I will post pictures this week.

25 1/2 weeks and counting

We are 25 weeks and counting until Harper makes his entrance! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. The girls love blowing and kissing on my belly. I know they will make great little mommies!
I've started to home school Taylor, a few days a week. She's 3 1/2 but her brain is like a sponge! A good friend of ours mentioned to us a few months back at how advanced she is compared to the other kids in her Children Equipping Class/Sunday School Class. I want to keep her interest and hoping she will read by 4 or 4 1/2.
Kamdyn, is right behind her. It helps to have an older sister and of course Kam has to compete with Ta! Kam, actually said to me today at the library "no thank you!" I asked her if she wanted to pick out books and that was her answer. Now, Taylor says "no thank you" when she doesn't want something but, I had no idea that Kam was picking up on that.
Jake, is doing well. He will be out of town quite a bit these next few months. He will be traveling to Texas, Alabama, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Connecticut and all in October and November! Of course, December and January he will not be traveling!
All in all were doing well!!!

Honoring my dad!

I am thinking of my dad today. He would have been 68! He was born September 2 1942, almost exactly 9 months after Pearl Harbor...yes, his dad was in the military! He was 39 years old when I was born and he robbed the craddle when he married my mom, which was 12 years younger. He has a son who is now 44.
Anyways...I just wanted to say how much I love him and miss him. I think about him daily! He touched a lot of lives in more ways then I will ever know. He loved baseball and was the best short stop I know...he loved the state of South Carolina, called it "God's Country!" He loved his family and he loved his work family (Sunrise.) He loved Jesus and followed him with his heart. If you were privilaged to know him you knew a good man....! I love you, miss you and think of you all the time. Happy Birthday!

Little Vacay!!!

Kam waving to the lions
This butterfly was so beautiful!
The Girls!
We spent this past weekend in St Louis. I bought Jake tickets to the Cubs vs Cards game for Friday night. He took his step brother who lives in STL. The following day we went to the Zoo and the Arch. For lunch, we found a sub shop (thank you GPS) in the Hill, which is strictly Italian!! The sub shop was voted best sub place in STL and we just happened to come across it. Needless to say, it was amazing! After the kids nap, we went shopping at the Galleria mall, which happened to be right across the street from our hotel! On Sunday, we made our way to see Jake's mom which is a 2 hour drive from STL. She is doing really well and is feeling really well.
The girls did so well in the hotel. We made sure we found a suite which has technically two different rooms. They stayed in the same room and did fine! All in all it was a great weekend, sad to see it end, but happy to be home and sleeping in our own beds. Were looking forward to trips in the future, none planned yet but we want to visit some surrounding cities! I've posted some pictures of the Zoo, it was Kam's first time and Ta's 3rd time.

Sunday, August 8, 2010

We are all doing well, just trying to survive this hot, hot summer! Florida, never felt this hot to me. We've been over 100 degrees for about a month now.
Anyways, the girls are doing well. Taylor, just got her first real big girl hair cut. She went to EJ Bain, which is the place were we get our hair cut. They shampooed, cut and blow dried her hair. She was such a big girl and of course I saved a lock of hair. It was sad!
Kamdyn, is as cute as ever! She loves to talk and say "Cheese" and "Key's" usually with a huge smile! Not as well as I write them but its really cute. She also loves to point to her nose. Did I mention she is 16 months, where does the time go?
My belly is growing and Harper is getting bigger. My official due date is 1/1/11! Crazy...I know.
We are taking a mini vacation this weekend to St. Louis. We can't wait! I bought Jacob tickets to the Cubs vs Cardinals game for Friday night. He's a Cubs fan. On Saturday, we are spending the day at the Arch, Zoo and shopping. Sunday, were going to visit Jakes mom. Side note, she is now home from the hospital, doing and feeling really well. So, we are excited to get away!
I've posted some pictures so enjoy!

Its a BOY!

We are having a BOY! My husband is so excited...I mean he loves and adores Taylor and Kamdyn but to think he has to shell out money for weddings...he knew how much my dad paid for our wedding...
His name is Harper Caid Ferrell. I had a dream, a few months back and I presented a boy named Harper Caid. Caid is my husband middle name and we just love it. Harper of course means Harpist. So the full name means "well rounded harpist." Were super excited.
I forgot that Jacob had a dream before he knew me. In the dream he had 3 children and they presented themselves to him. There were 2 girls and 1 boy. The boy was the youngest! Again were super excited and we have nothing boy!! So, it will be exciting to shop for a little boy....

17 weeks and counting

I am now 17 weeks. I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. We should find out in the next two weeks what we are having BOY or GIRL. Before we got pregnant in April, I had a dream that we were introducing a boy named Harper Caid Ferrell. We have liked the name Harper since we started having children, but just kept it locked away for a boy! Caid is my husbands middle name and we want to carry his name some how. So, we will just have to see....If its a girl her name will be Hattie Pearl Ferrell. Hattie was my dads grandmother, so my great grand mother. Hattie and my great grandfather Ottis Ponder raised my dad, so we thought it would be appropriate to name her Hattie. Pearl, is my husbands great grandmothers name. She was a jewish singer!

We are excited...with a BOY or a GIRL!!!!

Happy Month of June!

Well, May came and went pretty fast around here. We were very busy with life! We took a small trip to Illinois for Jakes great grandmothers 89th bday. We also ministered at two churches while in town, Little Chapel and Mercy Gate. Awesome people and awesome churches!
We ended the month with celebrating my birthday and having a great memorial day weekend! Props to my husband for surprising me with a new camera, a Nikon D5000 with an extra zoom lense. He saved money without me knowing!
We just booked our trip to Florida the end of June. We will be home from June 24-29th! Praise the Lord, I can't wait to go home! Our main purpose in going is celebrating my 10 year reunion....CRAZY! I can't believe it...

We are doing well, the fam is well! Ta and Kam are getting bigger and wiser...
I am 10 weeks along and can't wait to get out of this first trimester! It has been a doosie for me!
Enjoy the new pics of the fam. The first 3 pics are of my garden and than the other 2 are Ta and Kam! There from May..of course taking with my new camera!
