Rish Griffin Owens

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, July 16, 2008, Rish Griffin Owens arrived. (unfortunately my sister was up all night, but I think it was already a sign that he loves me because he knew I had to drive through the night to get there in time!) What a pretty boy he is with dark black hair and blue eyes, both like his mom- if the blue eyes stick around, and it is okay to call an infant boy "pretty." What a blessing it was to watch my sister become a mom over the past week and she and her husband, Jamie, and baby Rish become a family. And what wonderful parents they are- love beyond measure, patience despite sleep deprivation, self-sacrifice, and thankfullness that makes those witnessing more thankful for all they too have been given. Praise God for such a miracle!

Thinking Ahead

What will you do when or if your gorgeous daughter comes home with a nose ring?
I can handle one (on the side), but I'm not so sure about 8 large rings hanging from the center!

Number 11

UGH! The number 11 reason why I haven't posted is because it takes me forever to get it to look right with the photos and "captions" lined up. Just when I think it's right and I even preview it, I check it later and find that the pictures are not lined up one under the other and the captions are broken up and malaligned! (notice in the one about the home makeover how I have the "captions" before the pictures, it's for this very reason) If anyone has any tips I'd really appreciate it!
