New Arrival(s) :) and Contest Results!

I am happy to announce the arrival of my perfect little girl:


Her name means: Brilliant; Shining Light; Consecrated to God!

Born: Feb 3rd, 2010

Time: 2:22am

Weight: 6lbs and 9 oz

Length: 20 inches

Isn't she beautiful!?

And with every family of five comes a....Minivan! So, yesterday we bought a Honda Odyssey and it's beautiful - really, it's BEAUTIFUL! Probably the prettiest car I've ever seen...I know some of you are laughing right now but, I told Matt that he bought me my dream car and I meant it! There's something really amazing about joining the ranks of "BIG" families and having the freedom to bring extra kids along anytime we want! For those of you who don't have a van you can keep laughing at me...I don't mind!

I also wanted to announce the WINNER OF THE "GUESS HER BIRTH-DATE" Contest...actually there are two!

Vicki Willcock AND Yvette Edwards

One thing I didn't think through was what will happen when two people gets certain portions of the questions right and I guess the answer is they tie!

Here's what they guessed:

Vicki - Tuesday, February 2nd, 6 lbs 8oz. and 19 inches.

Yvette: I am going to say Tuesday Feb 2 at around 10pm and I think she will be 7lbs 2 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

They tied on the date, Vicki won for weight, and Yvette won for, I'm going to bite the bullet and award them both a $15 Itunes Gift Card! A special thank you to everyone else who played!

I'm home and overwhelmed with joy! Feeling great even though I know I won't be getting a lot of sleep of the coming months. There is grace and I will need it!
