Amelia Mattie

This morning at 3:28 am, our little girl was born.  She weighed in at 8lbs 12oz and measured 20in long.  Jill did great and both of them are doing very well.

Count Your Blessings

Once upon a time, while I was in college getting ready for the day, my roommate remarked to me "Can you believe it's already Nov. 1?"
"Yes," I said excitedly.  "And I've switched to the Turkey."

Several of my roommates thought was very funny. They had no clue what I was talking about so I guess it sounded pretty odd. What I meant was that I had a seasonal decoration, and already I hade switched out the jack-o-lantern for the turkey. For a long time they teased me about "switching to the turkey."

Anyway, I love November. I love reflecting back on the year and the blessings that came our way. And this year we were so very, very blessed.
