Back in June I posted about my brother Tim and sister-in-law Jess finding out they were having a girl. Well the time has come to introduce the newest member of the Dunbar clan, Hope Lynelle Dunbar. Hope she was born at 5:32pm on November 23rd and was 11lbs 8oz. Congrats again to the Dunbar Family!
Mallory turns 4 months old today! She is super sweet, not to mention adorable! And her parents, Kyle & Alison are two of the kindest people you will ever meet. You can just feel the love they have for Mallory! Thanks again to the Hofmann Family for allowing me to capture some great memories!
On Thursday, January 6, 2011 Charlie Tuchscherer entered the world. His parents, Andrew and Jen, are very close friends of mine. While at work, I got the call from Andrew that they couldn’t hang out on Friday because, well… Charlie arrived! This was great news. Beth and I went to visit the Tuchscherer family the very next day. Hey, we still got to see them on Friday, just not at their house! Jen was still exhausted and didn’t want a lot of pictures of her taken. I can respect that. Though I did sneak one in. Andrew is a very proud Papa and the photos speak for themselves. On Sunday after they were home, we brought them food and hung out for a little. Briar was with us this time. It was his first time seeing a newborn. He was curious. So congrats to Andrew and Jen, we can’t wait to see more of little Charlie!
We are still within the Twelve Days of Christmas so I feel I can still post Christmas photos. As I mentioned in my previous post, I took a lot of photos. The first five photos were taken before Christmas Eve but I wanted to include them anyway. On Christmas Eve, Beth, Briar and I started the day out at Beth’s parents house for lunch and presents. Mimi and Grandpa gave Briar his own chair with his name on it, some puzzles, clothes and Little People toys. Then for dinner we went to my uncle’s house for the Dunbar family Christmas. Uncle Steve, Uncle Fritz and my cousin Kyle all got Elvis glasses. I have to say they pretty much rock! Briar even had to try them on. My Grandma received her usual Christmas gift – pajamas and slippers which she loved. Then we headed back home to York to get the little guy to bed before Old Saint Nick arrived. And as usual we left the traditional Christmas barter for Santa – cookies and milk. It was a great day!
I took off the week between Christmas and New Years to spend time with my family. Briar is loving the Mommy and Daddy time. Between Briar’s nap times and bed times, Beth has been getting her scrapbook together and I have been working away on editing the holiday photos. There is so many photos that I think I am going to split them into two different posts – Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Beth and I went a tad overboard with presents, but hey, it was his first Christmas! But for now I will leave you with these photos I took tonight before bed. Briar was just so happy and the photos were too cute not to work on right away. My Briar Bear.
