I realize I have been a bit AWOL lately.  It isn't because I am lacking at things to say!  In fact, I have several posts (with pictures already taken) all lined up in my minds eye.  However, there are events in life that take precedence over everything else.  This is one.

I am reminded of the great verse from Isaiah 9:6 that begins "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given".  In my mind, the first part of this great scripture fits this event and the season. Welcome to the world little one.
