That For Which We Are Thankful...

On Saturday, November 27, 2010 around 3:00 my parents walked in after driving two days. I walked around for a few minutes and said to Jon, "I think we should go ahead and go to the hospital. I told my dad there was food in the freezer he could find for dinner and told the kids to be helpful. At 8:03 PM, we welcomed Mallory Jane Katharine into our family. She was 7lb 4oz and 19 1/2 in. She is simply beautiful.

Around 7:40 Jon called home to tell my parents to put the kids to bed as it looked like it would be a while. A few minutes later we changed our minds and he had to call them back so they could come see their new sister. I knew they wouldn't be able to sleep without meeting her so they all came up in their jammies!

Sucking her thumb!!
Grandma introducing her to Creed.

Creed was quite certain he could hold her all by himself and kept pushing my hands away.
Emma's turn...

Dressed and ready to go home after a very rough second night.
All snug in her carseat.
She was practically attacked coming through the door.
He is pretty pleased with her so far.
Jack keeps saying, "I just love Janey Kate!"

Elizabeth spent several hours holding her or sitting by her side.
Taking a snooze.
Sooooo Thankful for our Janey Kate!!!!
