"Attitude", part II...

Austin's Birthday

A rare photo of me with Austin {bottom right corner} - still crying an hour after his birth - and Jessi's dad giving him a kiss later. 

Austin's Birthday

Mason wasn't too sure about his new "ba brudder", but he was thrilled with the balloons and the oversized baby bottle filled with candy, and hiding in the closet in Jessi's hospital room.

This photo totally cracks me up. It may have been our last opportunity to get Jessi, Mason, Casey and Austin together for a family photo before we left, but it was apparently bad timing for Austin.
We are most grateful for Jessi's parents, who graciously made room for us and treated us like family in their beautiful home in Texas. Our time with Casey and his family would not have been nearly as delightful without Tom and Diane's generous hospitality. We are blessed.

...from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children's children...

Psalm 103:17
