brianna & braden

I always say these things will be short and then I end up rambling on forever, so this time I won't even say this will be short, even though I'm planning for it to be so! First of all I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for. Obviously, I am thankful for our beautiful baby girl who brings us so much joy, and as you've been seeing, is growing way too fast! I'm so thankful for the wonderful family that we have, they are so wonderfully supportive and loving, and for my handsome new nephew, who I can't wait to spoil!! I am thankful for all of the new babies that have gotten here safely this year, and pray for the ones still on the way, and also for beautiful baby McKenna, who every day shows us all that the its not the size of the body that matters, it is the strength of the soul, the love of family, (especially two amazing parents), and faith that really counts. And we are also very thankful for our wonderful friends that we are so lucky to have. As I said we have many things to be thankful for this holiday season, so thank you to all of you who check in on us, you are all very special to us and we are so very lucky to have you in our lives!

OK, I'm done with the mushy stuff now! :o) As you can see we went to see little Braden this weekend (oh, and Angie & Nick too!) I've added the pictures to Braden's album, there are quite a few of them, so enjoy! Other than that, I guess there isn't too much to tell, we had a great time visiting with the Creech family, and are so excited about their new addition. Braden is so adorable, and judging by the fact that he wasn't put down for more than 5 minutes at a time the whole weekend, I think he's going to be just a little spoiled! :o) Just kidding guys! We love him and you and can't wait to see you at Christmas!

Love to you all!!

mr. braden nicholas creech

I've added a Braden photo album. Click on the link to the left to see some pictures of the cutie pie! I'll be adding more soon!! :o) I've also changed the links a little bit. The photo album list for Brianna was getting out of control, so I will have a link to the most recent album from now on. Don't worry the rest of the pictures will still be there, you just need to check out my whole collection of albums now! And yes, Braden has his own section, but hey, I've never been an aunt before, so its exciting for me!

just a quick note

Just wanted to write a quick note, its been a busy weekend, and I'm tired, so this definitely won't be too long! Friday was Grandma's 75th birthday, so we went to Iowa to help her celebrate. On Saturday Mom and Dad went to St. Louis to wait for the arrival of their newest grandchild, so Bob, I, & Brianna headed back to Illinois. We were supposed to spend the weekend getting the house ready for Christmas, since we won't be home for the next two weekends, but we ended up not getting a whole lot accomplished! Oh well, thats usually the way that goes. There are new pictures, but I haven't created a link yet, so you can click down at the bottom of the left side to get to the main page with all the photo albums. I've created a new photo album that has pictures from Grandma's birthday (THANKS LINDA!!) and some of Brianna (yes, I know there are a lot of the same picture, but I have my reasons!) And it is easier to upload the whole file instead of picking and choosing. I promise I will go through them one day and delete a bunch, when I get some extra time! I guess that is about all. I'm anxiously awaiting pictures of my nephew, and can't wait to see him in person!

Please especially keep Dale, Suzanne, & McKenna in your prayers, that precious little angel has a strong spirit inside that tiny little body, and the power of prayer is an amazing thing!

we have a nephew!!

Braden Nicholas Creech was born at 10:37 pm on November 19, 2005. He weighed 9lbs and was 21 inches long. From what I've heard he has lots of dark hair. Congrats Angie & Nick, we can't wait to see all of you!!

Also born yesterday was Dale & Suzanne's little one. McKenna Arlene Felton was born at 2:35 am and weighed 1 lb 12 oz. Congrats Dale & Suzanne on your beautiful little girl!

Please keep the 4 parents and these 2 little babies in your thoughts and prayers!

We love you all!!

couple more things... I did have a few new pictures. :o) They are in the Volume 4 album. Bob got ahold of my camera while Brianna and I were napping. I've also added captions to the pictures, since I've had comments about my not doing that last week! :o) What do you people want from me?! :o) Just kidding! I added a guestbook to the site, so feel free to leave your comments and or criticisms (not that I'll take your advice...but you can leave it!) ;o) Well, I guess I should head off to bed soon, so...goodnight all!

just a little note...

Hi all...sorry no new pictures this week! Maybe later on in the week, but no promises. Nothing much new to report...we hired someone at work on Monday, so that is good...its weird to have someone else in the office, and I've discovered I have some control issues, its been hard to give up even the things I hate! But hopefully everything will work out and run smoothly! We took Brianna to get her picture taken on Saturday, she did pretty well, they just don't spend a whole lot of time with anyone because they book their appointments about 10 minutes apart, so with a 3 month old its hard to get really good pictures. but they did turn out pretty well, and I'm sure we'll have her picture taken again sometime soon. Other than that, I guess things are pretty boring around here. I'll try to post more this week, time just gets away from me these days.

I ask that you all keep Dale, Suzanne, & their baby in your thoughts and prayers, they are going through a really stressful time and prayers are one of the best things that we can do for them.

Love to all!

short & sweet

This is going to be pretty quick tonight. We just got back from Iowa about an hour ago, so I'm dead tired, and can't really think of much to write about. We went to Sarah (Hawkins) Weipert's wedding reception on Saturday night, the 5th (also Sarah's birthday). Sarah & Nathan actually got married on the 15th of October in Kansas City, MO, but then had a reception in Cascade for those who couldn't make it. She looked stunning, as you can see, and it was great to see her and her family. We also got to spend some time with Mom & Dad, which is always good, and got to get a break from the countless things that need to be done here at home. Well, now its back to reality, and we came home to find that our schedule on our DVR somehow got erased, so everything we had set to tape over the weekend never got taped, including the Bears game, that unfortunately wasn't on TV at Mom & Dad's today either....Booo :o( Anyway, I guess thats about all...I've added some more pictures to the Volume 4 album, there are a lot of Brianna in the dress that she wore to the reception on Saturday and also the dress that Mom & Dad gave her. She wouldn't smile, so I had to keep taking them! Until next time.....our love to all!
PS. I just noticed that I look the tallest of the 3 of us in this picture. That is quite sad, as I've never been the tallest in any group before! Thanks Sarah and Jill for making me look tall, even if it was only for a second!
