new pictures

Julee and Carlee made it home form the Hospital and are both doing Great!

You know you married a beautiful woman if she looks like this two days after having a baby.

Julee and I think this picture best shows what Carlee looks like.

Thank you Grandma for all your help!

Be Cool until next time!

Carlee Marie has arrived!

The last week Julee and I have been even more anxious then usual for our baby to come and apparently Carlee was too. She decided to show up 20 days early! It was a pleasant surprise especially since Julee and Carlee are both happy and healthy. I am still in shock of what happened Yesterday. Despite Carlee being so small we feel like we are at 150%.
Some details: Carlee was 18 inches 5 pounds 9 ounces and had an apgar score 9.9

We all know who Peter, Paul, and Luke are (Biblical names)
Michael is Matt's Dad's name/Douglas my Dad's name
The meaning of Gabriel is "God is my strength" (also a very biblical name)

Julee's 26th Birthday

My amazing, talented friend Tamara (the same one who made the apron) put together a fabulous lunch on my b-day and invited some friends. She made pulled pork sandwiches and cold slaw and served kettle potato chips, pickles and grapes on a cutely decorated table! Yummy!! And for dessert...a peanut butter sheet cake and chocolate ice cream! Double yummy!! I know, what an awesome friend!

At the party was a 33 week pregnant woman (me), a mama with a 3 week old (Afton and Brooks), a mama with a 6 month old (Shannon and Ashlyn), and a mama with a 4 month old (Tamara and Oliver), and a new grandma (Afton's mama). You can imagine what we talked about...

That made my birthday one to never forget and then to top it off Matt took me to see a Broadway show! We tried to win lottery tickets to Wicked but weren't lucky enough so we purchased discount tickets to Little Mermaid instead. It was a good show. We had a blast. We hung out in Time Square McDonald's until the show started (it was cold and raining outside).

I love Matt so much!

This is the Hoover Elite Vacuum that I got. Finally, a "real" vacuum.
