Uncle Josiah Meets Bella

Our family has a couple of traditions when a new baby is born. 1. the baby gives all the siblings a gift when he/she comes home and 2. the siblings bake a "birthday" cake and bring it to the hospital to share on their first visit to see and hold the new baby. 

Knowing Josiah was coming down today, Bre suggested we bring the cake over Krista had made earlier. 

Izaak, Bre and Bella

Bella is 5 days old
 We took some baby leg pictures just for "Aunty" Beth

Sweet times
 Aunt Krista was happy to sneak in a bit of loving time too. LOL 

Surprise at Church

Look who surprised us at church today in OR - he lives in WA. We knew he was swinging down to meet Bella...but he heard Michael was preaching at Krista's church today and when we walked in....there he was! 

Arielle and Cory snuck in too.....This photo is TERRIBLY out of focus....but I want to remember the funny moment....we'll just have to have a redo next Sunday. ::snort:: I motioned to these two I wanted to take a picture and they both moved out of the way at the same time, leaving me to take a photo of the back wall of the church. ::snort::   Cory has now met the first of the three older brothers. ::wink:: 

Mom, Dad, and Lorri - joined all of us - and we went to a little Chinese place for lunch. 

Some of my best surprises involve this boy of mine!
