It's a Boy!

Spencer is here! 

We are so happy to finally meet the little guy. He is healthy, beautiful, and just perfect...
8 lb 8 oz and 20 inches long
(After one week, he's already up to 9 lb 2 oz!!)

Big sister is so excited to have Spencer around. She runs into whatever room we're in and says, "Where's Brother?" or "Where's Spencer?" and then tries with all her might to reach some part of him to touch- she is so gentle and kind to him already. It brings tears to my eyes to see them together and it's only been a week and a half!

 Look at those hands- HUGE!

We do have our nights and days mixed up so Spencer and I spend most of the days trying to rest and catch up on our sleep, but we would love to introduce Spencer to his friends and family. Give me a call if you want to come over :)

Happy Birthday, Mom!

We celebrated my mom's birthday earlier this week with a delicious cup of coffee and breakfast treats at our favorite local bakery, Olde Tyme Pastries, then again midweek week at La Mo. I can't say enough good things about La Mo. They post their specials almost every day on Facebook, and I swear I drool just reading them. Thanks for giving us a reason to celebrate, Mom! I hope this year is spectacular for you :)

Happy Birthday, Trace!

We did end up going sledding to celebrate Trace's birthday and we had a great time!
The big four year old!

 A little more comfortable in her snow boots this time :)

Uncle Travis showing the kids how it's done

Having a great time! 

 Because there was such little snow, we had the whole sledding hill to ourselves :)

 She is so serious!

When I asked her if she wanted to do it again, she said yes and told Daddy, "Again! Go up there."

Grandpa and Laura going full speed 

Travis and the girls going slow

 The lack of snow gave us a great little rest stop

The attempt at a snow man (I called him the Jay Leno snowman)

The kids  <3

Yeah, she looks a little like her daddy :)

 Perfect way to end a snow day = chocolate cake!

We had a beautiful day! I love seeing Adaline getting more and more comfortable with the snow- before I know it, Travis will have her on a snowboard...
