Ryan has another tooth coming right next to his first one!  Unfortunately, it is making him very unhappy today.

Also, Ryan had a visit from the home health nurse the other day and he weighs 16 lb. 3.5 oz!  Wow he has really grown hasn't he?

Although the snow last week didn't stick to the ground, Alec had a great time playing in it while it was falling.  He was able to put together a large snowball which he put in the freezer.

We are enjoying the colors of the holiday season....all the beautiful lights on trees, houses, buildings, etc. , as well as all of the Christmas specials on TV.  This time of year reminds us what is important in life.  For us that is our family and friends......

With all the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving week, decorating, etc. I forgot to post that Ryan got his first tooth on November 25th! It's on the bottom and it was obvious it was coming because he was so fussy and he kept chewing on his hand.

I haven't been able to get a good picture of him showing it off, but when I do I'll post it.

I hope all our family and friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We look forward to seeing, hearing and keeping in touch with you during the Christmas season.

Prayer Request for Joyce Keenan

As some of you may know, my sister Angela is mentally challenged and lives in a group home close to Baton Rouge.

Many of my friends and family have met Joyce Keenan, Angela's wonderful home manager for over 10 years.  Unfortunately, Joyce is again fighting kidney cancer for the second time. Those who have met Joyce know she is an inspiring woman who has always gone far beyond the title of "home manager" and is considered a part of our family and many families of those she cares for.

I ask that you pray to help give Joyce the strength to guide her through this very difficult time. Please also pray for strength for my sister and the ladies of her home, Mustard Seed. Joyce's illness has thrown their very structured world into chaos and they are scared and unsure of the future.

My family appreciates all your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you, Lisa

Quick Ryan update....

They nurse forgot to measure Ryan on Wednesday so she came back Friday and Ryan is 25 1/2" long!

We had a busy weekend (me working on my ebay store & Joey cleaning yard), but it was a good one.  We got to spend some quality time together (which we hardly get to do).  Joey and I also got to catch up on some shows on Tivo, Alec & Joey went to see A Christmas Carol, and I got to watch some great football games this weekend. 

Hope everyone has a great week!
