Luke Russell Pics!

He's here! At 12:14 pm today weighing in at 7 lbs 10 oz and measuring 20 inches long.

I (Rachel) am recovering well so far! Luke is currently in the NICU because he was having some breathing issues. It turns out that he just has some extra fluid in his lungs but it is steadily decreasing (yay!) He still has to stay in the NICU for 48 hours for observation though until all of his tests results come back saying that he doesn't have an infection.

Here are some pics:

Snow Day 2010!!

Well, we had some CRAZY snow here in Dallas last week. It was definitely over 12 inches in some parts of our yard. As you can see from the pictures, we were very unprepared for snow (no gloves, no water-proof pants, no water-proof shoes). But it was a BLAST!

(And sorry about the music... I know it's a big blog no-no, but I just couldn't help myself!!) :)

Here are some recent pictures of the kids...

Carissa at Chuck E Cheese. We aren't brave enough to go to Chuck E Cheese very often, but when we do, the kids have a blast! Despite the blank look on Carissa's face in these pictures, she really had a lot of fun. She was trying very hard not to look at the camera.

The kids having fun at the Dallas Zoo:

Jacob and friends learning their Spanish alphabet (along with the alphabet sign language) at Spanish class!

Faith and Daddy before Date Night:

This past Christmas when Faith got her American Girl doll (whose name is Molly - Faith insisted that I add her name to the post). She takes her American Girl doll with her most of the time.

So, wow... I haven't posted anything on here since September!!

Why, you ask? Because I started another blog in September that has consumed most of my spare time! It is called Surviving The Stores and is all about free items you can get at the stores, couponing, great deals online... all kinds of stuff! If this interests you, I recommend checking it out! :)

Now, back to the real reason you check this blog... pictures of the kids! Here are some of the family pictures that Ryan's grandad took of us while we were there during Christmas. (Can you tell which picture I switched a better picture of a person in??) :)
