The baby boy!

It is with a


on my face 
that I tell you about the new babe.

The whole gang is excited to say welcome to the family!

Well, maybe Hudson isn't too thrilled!

"Grandma, may I please hold him?"


"Let's see what daddy says."

"Grandma, look, he said yes!!!!"

We are all happy!

Our laps and hearts are full of love.


My phone is a phone!

I think the girls have officially ditched this blog thing.
Instagram has taken over for them.

Since I am still "old-time" and my phone is just that, a phone, this blog works for me.

Here is an update for you all that still look at the blog.
Steve and I spent some time together in San Diego the beginning of August.

We tried the newer location of the Village Pizzaria in Coronado.  The pizza was yum, and the company great.  It feels like one big long date when we are in San Diego by ourselves!

Ellie has been growing!

Steve has been riding.

Ashley wanted to ride through Glacier National Park on a Harley.
It didn't take her long to talk Steve into it.

Hudson has been growing too!

Ellie has been watering.

We have had some amazing weather.

Kacey has been growing too!

You all will have to come back for a further update on the wee one's progress!

See you soon,
