I just came to check on you two and can’t believe that Janice had her beautiful Olivia already! I thought I still had time to get my baby gifts out to you two.

She is absolutely gorgeous! I think she looks like Jackson! What do you think?

Big hugs to Janice from me and Parker!

And Susan we’ll be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers too!

Welcome, sweet Olivia!

“I leave to children inclusively, but only for the term of their childhood, all, and every, the flowers of the field, and the blossoms of the woods, with the right to play among them freely according to the custom of children, warning them at the same time against the thistles and the thorns. And I devise to the children the banks of the brooks and the golden sands beneath the waters thereof, and the odors of the willows that dip therein, and the white clouds that float high over the giant trees.

And I leave the children the long, long days to be merry in a thousand ways, and the night and the moon and the train of the Milky Way to wonder at, but subject, nevertheless, to the rights hereinafter given to lovers.”

From Charles Lounsberry’s Ethical Will @

aw, that face is adorable! i just can’t get over how adorable babies are. you just want to capture everything in a picture so you’ll have that memory forever!

you should check out the Emoticon Photo Contest @ Norton where you upload a picture that looks like one of 5 emoticons (i.e. :-P) and have a chance to win $10,000! and who couldn’t use that, especially with a cute little one like that!

check it out @ http://www.norton.com/photocontest , there are lots of other cute pics on there too. you’ll have a good laugh.

and it’s all in the name of good fun!
