Memories of Christmas 2011

Special memories of Christmas 2011 in no particular order: Seeing two of my sons pass the Sacrament. Hearing my eight-year-old on Christmas morning exclaim how well Santa knows her. Christmas breakfast made by my eighteen-year-old daughter. Sharing baby’s first Christmas Eve hot tub experience. Watching my husband build the 1870 detailed replica of a kitchen […]

Santa Present Mix-up

Update #2 on Baby Lisbon

We are now very close to holding our baby in our arms. If Lisbon does not make an appearance by herself this coming weekend (26-28th), we will induce labor on August 30th.

Update on Baby Lisbon
