Baby Elijah

On October 7, my great nephew, Elijah Zane was born weighing in at 1 lb 10 oz. He was so tiny but definitely a little miracle. Today, I stole some pictures from his mom and wanted to share them with ya'll.

Great Week - The End

Saturday morning found us at Payton's first soccer game of the season:
And in the afternoon, we took in a double header baseball game:

All in all, it was a great week from the start to the end.

Great Week Part 2

When I scheduled my vacation in January, I had scheduled Thursday & Friday off more as mental health days rather than having anything planned. God knew in January what was going to happen - isn't that amazing. Thursday was a fun day of volunteering with a second grade class at a local elementary which reinforced my appreciation for public school teachers and their influence. Later that day, I received a text that baby Jaxson was trying to make his appearance but it wasn't happening quite yet. So after a quick trip to the hospital Thursday evening, I came home to rest for the big day Friday when we got to meet this little fella:
Jaxson Lee McCollough

Born: 10/01/10 @ 11:08 a.m.

Weighing: 4 lbs 15 oz & 18 inches
Leann - the lovin mom

Thanks Leann & Brandon for letting me share in this day.

Great Week Part 1

My week started Sunday morning at Lake Worth Baptist Church. We had our 73rd church anniversary and the first service of our fall revival. We had some good singing all week:

Bro. Brian Withrow preached and taught on "Joy" using Phillipians as his reference point. His messages were just what the doctor or should I say the great physician recommended for what ailed me.
