Our precious little...

Family visit!

Oh the wonder of a little baby!

"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer,bankroll smaller,
home happier,clothes shabbier,the past forgotten, and the future worth living for."

A little late...

We actually managed to have our traditional "birthday breakfast" for Joe this year!
~Joe and Rachel~

Opening presents... (we scored big this year *smile*)

I love our tradition of Dairy Queen cakes!! We had finally filled our little 'punch card' so this one was practically free!

The cake this year proved to be an interesting affair...(just ask Esther and Abby)
Normally you set the cake out 15 min. before you intend to serve it that way it is soft enough to cut/eat. But we were in such a hurry to eat it...and with it being game day, totally forgot to take it out to thaw. So...the long and short of it...some ended up microwaving their piece so as not to damage their teeth:)

"Live not as a man whose reward is in this life.
Live as a man whose greatest reward is the pleasure of God."

Oh the joys of fall:)

Combine a trampoline + a bunch of leaves from our yard and get....

...hours and hours of fun, LOTS of energy burned and a good lymph system workout:)

Announcing the new arrival of...

Yelena Joy Beasley

Isn't she sweet?

She is a 6.6lb bundle of sweetness, born at 9:06:)

Mama and baby are doing wonderful!!

Elise was gone for the actual birth but came home to see her new little sister!!
All through out the day Elise would wander over to the "nice baby" and smile, laugh and 'pet' the baby then walk away again:) It was so very cute!

The sweet little sweet pickle:)

Ah, what joy a new baby brings!
