Party of Four

We are finally, officially, a party of four! We're a family of five but we only need 4 seats in a restaurant because Brighton has the best seat available...

HUGE THANKS to everybody who came out and made some noise for little Mebrate's ride up the escalator at the airport. You guys are the coolest!

For those who wanted to come but couldn't - here's a big ole photo dump for ya. Our good friend Tony shot some good video we hope to have uploaded soon. For now... I'm gonna go stare at all 3 of my sleeping beauties...




































Home sweet home. Finally.

Thank you so much for posting these! God's faithfulness is amazing. Your family is an awesome expression of the truths that God works everything out for His good and that good things often come to those who wait. So happy for you four!
