Snowfall in Kentucky!

It hardly ever snows like this in Kentucky, and when it does everything shuts down. This snowfall caused me to get to stay another night in Kentucky since all the planes were late or cancelled. I was happy to get to stay another day, and the kids were sooooooo happy to be able to build a snowman. Here is Coen and Atlas building Mr. Frosty.

Family Time in Kentucky

We feel so blessed to have two of our kids families in the same town for a while and had so much fun getting to spend time with Brad, Jessie and Aiden too while we were in Kentucky. Here they are at one of our favorite places to eat......Red Robin. Cute Aiden!

Playing "Up and Down the River"

Aiden is such a big boy and loves anything that has to do with balls.

On Thanksgiving morning Alan, Brad and I were able to particpate in a 5K race at one of the local horse racetracks. The grounds were beautiful and it was just us and a 1500 of our new friends. It just happened to be 65 degrees and perfect for a little run. Thanks Brad, for indulging us! We love you.

Leilah is a week old!

Here is our sweet Leilah after her first week of life. What a sweet baby! We miss all our Kentucky kids, but will make it back to see you all as often as we can!

Baby Leilah has arrived!

Our newest little grand daughter Leilah Ann Zastrow arrived on November 24th at 8:25 AM in Lexington, Kentucky. Alan and I, once again feel so fortunate to have been able to make it to Kentucky in time for her arrival. We arrived in Lexington in the evening on the 23rd, and Meagan went into labor that night. Alan was able to stay at the house with the other kids and I went to the hospital with Meagan and Brent at 4 AM, and she arrived just 4 hours later. Meagan was awesome! When we got to the hospital she was already to a 6 and hardly in any pain. When it came time to push, it was 2 pushes, and out she came! What a wonderful birth and Leilah is such a sweet, content baby. She hardly ever makes a noise and then it's only if she is hungry or needs a diaper change. They both were able to come home on Thanksgiving Day! How appropriate, since we have so much to be thankful for. Alan stayed until November 30th and I will be heading home on December 4th. I have loved being with the Zastrow's and also with Brad, Jessie and Aiden. We had a lot of great family time together. She weighed 6 lbs. 8 oz. and was 18 1/2 inches long.

Cute little family.

More of Baby Leilah

Here she is only minutes old. Love those cheeks! Emy is no longer the baby.....she is the older sister.
Atlas was the most excited to see little Leilah. He couldn't wait to hold her, and every time she cries he sings "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" to her. It's so sweet and interestingly enough, it works. She loves it and almost always stops crying.

Coen is very protective of Leilah.

Adorable picture. Meagan doesn't even look like she had a baby.
