Ryan's Arrival

Here is the proud Papa! Yep, that is 4 a.m. in the background!


Dr. Short delivered a longgggggg baby-22 inches!

Look at the beautiful Mommy of two boys now! Our hero!!


Aaron meeting Ryan for the very first time...they both have a nose!

Aaron watching the baby being changed...he is already a protective big bro!

The nurse said that both kids have the same nose!

In case you didn't know...this is what an angel looks like...a 9 pound 3 ounce angel!

Aaron already loves his little brother...what a cute kiss!


Ryan resting in his own bed! Yes, those are socks on his hands...his nails are sooo long.


We just got home and the boys are already conspiring!!! Watch out mommy!

Aaron is helping carry Ryan in our house for the 1st time!

Second row is full...everyone else head to the back!

Aaron likes Ryan's hat!

Here's what we found when we got home from church today...you would have thought this would have sent me into labor...


That is our tree laying on our neighbor's house...not exactly what you want to see when you get home from churchWe had some really strong wind today and that was all she wrote...down it came...fortunately two fences caught it...
As you can see we also have had a lot of rain...big surprise for the NW

So we called an emergency 24 hour tree service, who showed up an hour later and $500 later they took care of the tree

We were extremely blessed and the only damage was to the fence. The roof is just fine.
The guys even put our fence up for us, temporarily until we can get it fixed next week sometime. The wind is supposed to get much worse tonight. I suppose if it were to happen we were lucky it did during the day, in the light.
