Note From Silvernale Photography
This family is near and dear to our hearts here at Silvernale Photography. Our Social Media Manager, Shantel, has been lifelong friends with Carla & Kevin's daughter, Madyson, and has witnessed first hand, the struggles and triumph this family has endured the last few years. When we asked Carla to answer some typical blog questions to be able to write this up, the information that Carla provided is simply too beautiful to alter in any way. This is them, this is raw & real, and this is their story.
"Our Family Blog" written by Carla Keepes
We received a gift from WGH giving tree last year for a family portrait, which I had been wanting for awhile. This family, what can I say, is very blessed immensely by the grace of God. For the last few years, dealing with the big C word, Cancer. We are a strong, loving, and caring family. We have three grand babies at this time with one more coming in January that we are so excited about. They are the blessing in our hearts. There is always a ray of sunshine when they are all around.
Some of our favorite things to do, camping together. I would have a bad week with the chemo, and the following week they would have a camping trip picked out for us and did everything for us during the weekend. We also like to go to St. Louis to the Cardinal games, and, also, sing Take Me Out To the Ball Game. It is such a joy to see all the grandkids singing together. Another thing we enjoy is having family chowders. My father started many years ago, Derek and Megan have continued to host it at their house. We eat chowder and then sit around the fire pit and sing our favorite songs.
I, also, want to mention my son, Tyler. He is an Afghanistan war warrior and we are so proud of the work he did for our country.
Then, there is my husband, Kevin. He has given up so much for me through this cancer, I love him so,
Finally, there is my best friend, my daughter, Madyson. She is always by my side through it all. Every night we say goodnight via text message and I Love You. I am so excited to see the parents that her and Matt will be to this precious bundle of joy coming.
