Our Surprise

Well, the special surprise is here.  On Friday, we welcomed a new member to our family!


Doesn't Jacob look so huge sitting on her lap?
       Of course she's not really a new family member, but we've never had her live at our house before. Nana has been in an assisted living facility for several years, but Daddy and Momma felt like it was right to have her here with us instead.

 Just about everyone pitched in, carrying things to the moving truck, guarding the side door (so people who were supposed to stay in didn't come out), and packing boxes.

He did help some :)

      Everyone stayed up late on Friday night unpacking the U-haul truck and organizing her things. Momma and I are still working on her clothes, which she has in abundance!!

         Nana is such a blessing, and we all love her very much. She's especially popular with Jacob right now, who is following her around almost constantly.

   Goodbye until later!
    Since I said we had a surprise, I considered saying as an April fool's joke that we were going to get another baby.  After thinking about it a bit though, I decided that it might not be such a good idea. :)

Happy Birthday Lydia

                                                         Today is Lydia's sixth birthday!
                                                                   We love her lots.

       Lydia is very tenderhearted, with a bright and sunny personality. She inspires people we don't even know with the differences that God has made her with. By overcoming the next challenge (learning talk without a lower jaw, using the bathroom with no hands etc.) she can bring glory to His name though her patience and diligence. She wasn't a mess up. Lydia was made just perfect. :)
