It was a very merry Christmas at the Hansom household. Gracie was so fun on Christmas morning.
Here is some video of her as she came out to see what Santa brought her.

Here is some video of her playing with her new bike that Santa brought.

More photos of Christmas for all to enjoy!

Hope that you all had as great of a Christmas as we did and that you have a very merry New Year!!

Isabella's Birth

Well, we did it...(or rather Beth did it.) Our newest addition came into the world on 12/18/2006 at 5:07pm. She was 19 1/2 inches long and weighed 7lbs 1oz. And she is beautiful - perfect in every way. Beth had a relatively easy labor this time. Aside from the sitting around it went really well. We went in at 4:00am on the 18th to begin the induction and by 9:00am she had received her epidural and was feeling no pain. About 5:00pm the Dr. came in and had her do a couple of pushes to see where she was and stated after the 2nd push..."STOP, I need to get properly dressed for this and we need to call the nursery, I can see the babies head already." The Dr. got ready, the nursery people came in and Beth pushed 3 more times, and Baby Isabella was born!!

Here she is getting cleaned up.

Here she is getting weighed.

Gracie and Isabella meeting for the first time.

Everyone is home now, and all are doing well. Now it is just a matter of getting into the routine of two, instead of just one!!!
