Where Does the Time Go?

Zane is one month old today.

The Holy Family

Kilikina posted about a great Christmas craft. This is our version of the finished product. (Dylan is giving baby Jesus some tender loves.)

My Cousin

Please pray for my cousin, Pamela. She was in a serious accident last night. She has lost part of her left leg, broken her left femur and has some damage to her face near her eye. She is 17 years old. I am broken-hearted today for her and her parents. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers...especially over Christmas.
Please also think of her friend - who was driving.

Adjusting to the New Family Dynamics

We have been busy adjusting to our new family and recovering from the whole birth experience. Mom has been coming to our house bright-and-early every weekday morning and not leaving until supper is on the table. She has been so wonderful! I am so thankful that she took the time off to help us - I really don't know what I would have done! This is her last week with us and I get a little panicky thinking about doing it on my own before I'm completely recovered...this whole blood-loss thing has got me just plain exhausted. I will definitely have to lower our housekeeping standards for a while:-)

Last weekend, we did some Christmas caroling with friends. We were pulled on a horse-drawn sleigh around town. It was great fun! Here are some pictures - you'll have to excuse the attire - it was freakin' cold! And I had to wear Dwayne's snowmobile jacket, as it was the only one I could fit Zane under.
