Lily Grace is born!!

Lily Grace was born on Aug. 3, 2008 at 2:23 A.M. She was 6 lbs. 11 oz. and 18 inches long. We were blessed with a faster labor and delivery this time, and Lily was born just about 20 minutes after we arrived at the hospital. Below are some pictures of the new baby girl in the family. Big sister Emma just loves "Baby Lily" and is always wanting to give her hugs and kisses.
I guess it's a good thing I am so sensitive and understanding since I will be living in a house with 3 girls. HAHA. I truly feel blessed to have been given 2 wonderful healthy daughters to raise with my wonderful wife. God is Good.

I love this picture of Lily. She just looks so perfect.

It's Almost Christmas

Just wanted to post a few pictures from our Christmas parties this past weekend. We did not do Christmas cards this year so I wanted to at least show some pictures.

This was the Christmas card picture - if we did Christmas cards.

Excitement Over the Thanksgiving Weekend!!

Well, It was another enjoyable Thanksgiving for our family. We went to my parents on Wednesday night and Heather's parents on Thursday afternoon. It worked out well to separate all the turkey eating by about 24 hours so I was able to get my ample fill.

Heather, Emma, and I ventured out to the stores on Friday for the "Black Friday" sales. It really wasn't too bad with crowds and lines, and we did get some good deals. Check out the picture below for a shirt we thought we would give to Emma for Christmas.

So, What do you think?
Also, here are some pictures from Halloween.

Enjoying the springtime

Emma has had quite an exciting spring/summer so far, and it is not officially summer yet. So far she has gone on a trip to the Brookfield Zoo, Timber Ridge indoor water park in Lake Geneva, and to the White Sox game. Heather and Emma went to the water park with Heather's Aunt Susie and her cousin Morgan, but I was not able to go. They had a lot of fun there, and I stayed home and was able to get a lot accomplished on our latest home remodeling project. I will post pictures of that soon, but check out the other pictures below.

They even named a cow after her. Is that something to be proud of?

Emma's 9 Month Pictures

Here are some of our favorites from Emma's 9 month pictures. It is always so hard to choose which pictures to buy, and you usually walk away spending more money than you thought. Oh well, She will only be 9 months old once.

Weekend Getaway and Enjoying the Outdoors

A couple weekends ago we went up to Door County, Wisconsin for a long weekend getaway. It was so nice to getaway and spend some "family time" together. We stayed at my Uncle Jay's condo in Ephraim, WI. My parents went up there on Monday and we got up there late on Thursday night and stayed until Monday afternoon. My parents left to come home on Saturday, but we were able to enjoy spending all day Friday with them walking around, shopping, and dining out. The sweet potato fries at J.J.'s in Sister Bay are the best!! The weather was nice while we were up there, sunny and in the 50's everyday. We were able to go hiking on Saturday at Peninsula State Park and enjoy all the beautiful scenery. We really had a great time - Thanks Uncle Jay and Aunt Sandy for the use of the condo.

Hiking down by Green Bay.
