For those of you who haven't heard yet, Annalee Grace joined our family on October 12. We found out later that it was Pastor Appreciation Sunday, and Jeremy said he really felt appreciated! We all love our baby girl - especially the boys. They are always wanting to hold her. Silas likes to call her a "beautiful princess." She was 8 lbs. 3 oz. - our biggest one so far. It sure is different to be able to dress one in pink. It will be interesting to see the other differences that will come from her being a girl.
My Mom and Dad were able to come up and visit us right after she was born. This was the first time that my Dad has been here. My Mom was able to come up last fall. We had a good visit, and showed them around Galena. It didn't take long... We are hoping that next time they come to visit, it will be in the summer or fall, so that my Dad can enjoy going fishing or hunting with Jeremy.
