Jacob and Hunter  Jan 17, 2005

Jacob and Hunter are our true gift from God.  Their Mom, Tracey, and Dad, Thom, prayed for years for these 2 guys.  After trusting God would answer their prayers they welcomed Hunter and Jacob into the Kaufold/Anderson world bright and shinny in 2005.  Their smiles and joy are from the love Mom and Dad gave them

Nathaniel Kane Kaufold
 April 22, 2003 - July 8, 2004
There is a picture of him here it was the last picture of him taken before he died. I had a friend add the wings for a picture I gave to his mom Jen and dad Jon (my son) He was born with his brother Timothy on April 22, 2003. Tim did so well, Nate had so many things wrong with him. He fought like hell for 14 months. His mom and dad kept him going with love and devotion. When he died the nurses told Jen and Jon that they would be the parents they would tell other moms and dads about, when it came to courage and fighting for a childs health care.

Nathaniel was prayed for all over this county, by word of mouth and e-mail. He was a gift God gave us, to rejoice in. He was the message and we were the messagers. He was blind, deaf, he had CP and his heart was not well. But when we where with him, he smiled and laughed.

We never asked God why He sent Nate, we knew it was to bless us and bless all that knew of . Tim is so full of life, I am sure Nate is in there laughing with him.

Bermuda really has pink beaches
 
Our Love of Bermuda has a reason.  The first time I went to Bermuda I was 18.  I went with 2 girl friends.  The first time for Thom was when he was in the US Coast Guard, about the same time as me.   We went together for the 1st time in 1987.  Nothing had changed it was still Fast Food and big building free.
 
To see Bermuda makes me heart leap.  When I get upset I just say the word Bermuda and I am less stressed.  We have been there 5 times.  Two times on a cruise. 
 
We even have a Bermuda Room in our home.  We painted it Bermuda Pink Sand.  How could I not pick that color?
