'Twas a Miracle

Well, we all made it to church yesterday. Yes, that was a big miracle for us. Maybe you can sympathize?

It was such hard work to make happen. We had to start the night before by getting the boys to have baths which is harder than you can imagine. For ...

Davis at one month

On his one month birthday, we took a picture of Davis next to a cute little stuffed bear. The idea is to take a picture of him next to this same toy every month so you can compare his growth to the toy. It turns out you only get to ...

My apologies...

Right before Davis was born, Bryan did some tweaking to our computer that made it hard for me to add pictures to our blog. Since Bryan hardly has time to add pictures himself, we have hardly added any pictures to the website. Sorry about that. Today I will be working ...

Just some random things I want to remember

Because this little pipsqueak of a baby named Davis caused such a stir with his arrival, I just want to write down a few things I don’t want to forget about his birth and the days after.

Lucky me

There have been a few things that have made me feel very lucky, or blessed, lately. I thought I would share those things since you really must be waiting for our next blog entry with baited breath so I will gladly give you something to read.
