Here are some pictures of our daughter. I still can't believe the Lord sent her to us. She is a lovely baby and adds a sweetness to the feeling in our home. It is amazing how different each child can be. Sometimes, C will be running through the house and he'll stop to put his face down near her feet. He will laugh gleefully when she moves, especially if she kicks him. I'll then ask him to do something and he will turn and say, "no" and then go back to his running. All the while, she is just looking around calmly as if to say, "I am content and I'm going to stay that way." I added the last picture of her in the middle of a cry for Joe. It reminds me of some of his classic baby faces . . . and even later-in-life faces. :)
She was 7.2 lbs. and very tired. She opens her eyes a lot more now.
We just wanted to say ‘hi’ to everyone. Rach is happy and bulging with less than a month left for the next baby. They say it’ll be a girl, but they’ve said that before, so we’ll see in January. Little C is 18 months and can do everything himself. Temperatures are not too bad, and we’re not planning on a white Christmas this year.
We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas time with families and lots of giving. We are thankful to have the gospel of Jesus Christ that reminds us of why we celebrate this time of year, and we are so grateful for the greatest love shown by our Savior in giving His life for each of us.
Thanks so much to all of you for your friendship and influence in our lives.
While visiting Bex, we spent a wonderful few days at the Horlacher's home. This was taken Sunday afternoon when we were all out sitting on blankets on the lawn, while listening to Seth play his accordian. C obviously enjoyed it as well.
Last Sunday, little C sported a new Hawaiian shirt. His dad came to visit for the occasion, (actually, I think he came to see me, but the new shirt was a definite bonus). The next picture shows C with one of my Christmas presents on his head (a blue bandana from Dad) while studying the keyboard on his lap. He's really good at observing things before he starts performing, so I'm expecting him to play a song in no time. Below we have a picture of him in his Christmas PJs and one with him all bundled up after a walk in the cold, Snowflake air.
