Today our dear Kayla is 19 years old. This pic is from a few years back. The teddy bear was much loved by her kitty, Titus, who kneaded the poor toy to baldness.

Two cozy girls. In this photo, Rebecca is about eight years old, and Lydia is about six. So cute! Daddy’s work coat is doing double duty. 🙂

Lydia, this old photo came up on the “shuffle” function on my desktop. I think you look so pensive, or maybe like a tragic princess. How old do you think you are in this photo?

Our Friends the Kirkmans Have Baby Number 7, Juliet Mercy

Friday, February 2nd, 2007

Yesterday I received the following e mail from our friend, Liz Kirkman, recounting the story of Juliet Mercy’s birth this past Monday:

Family & Friends,

Most of you have probably seen most of this already, but I thought I’d send out the links (since they seems to keep piling up). We’re front page Everett Herald today and doing a phone interview for NPR in a couple minutes here. I’m still working on the formal birth announcements, but figured I’d send out the existing stories. Don’t believe everything you read though… All the interviewers were guys, so…as you can imagine, the labor story doesn’t translate real well. This is all getting rather out of hand–we’ve even been invited to New York now for some morning talk show! Whaaaat?!!?

God is faithful & good, and…He definitely has a sense of humor. Hope you enjoy the links. Thanks so much for your prayers and love during this happy crazy time.
