Presenting Baby Colby! Welcome Home Todd!

We couldn't be happier and more thankful for the safe arrival of Colby Curtis. He's our 3rd grandson. He was born Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at 1:05 pm. 6 lbs. 15 oz, 19 inches long. What a blessing to meet him right after he was born. His brothers, Ty and Carter were so excited to meet him for the first time. Ty was so gentle and sweet. He sang "Happy Birthday" to his new brother, Colby. Three year old Ty asked his mom, "How did you spit him out?" How precious is that?

We got home early this morning just in time to sleep a few hours and then pick up our son, Todd, who is home for Christmas from Good Fellow AFB. I was overwhelmed with emotion to meet him at the airport. I feel so blessed!

I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
