Christmas Eve 2010

Here are some shots that I took on Christmas Eve. They include our usual Christmas Eve celebration with a menu of ham, shrimp, fruit, veggies, cheese, and assorted cookies. I got a shot of Emily and Noah taking a nap in the afternoon. Both Emily and Robert are suffering from newborn sleep deprivation.
With newborn Noah, 21 month Bobby, and just turned 3 Emma - our Christmas Eve was filled with activity. We are blessed.

Dove Bars

Emma visited on Sunday. She requested a taco salad for lunch. This lunch has become a standard request and she eats it well. For dessert, she enjoyed a chocolate Dove bar. She had her first one the week before. As soon as she tasted the first bite she said, "Nana, when I finish this I am going to have another one." Here are some photos of her enjoying dessert.

I was able to visit with Emily, Robert, Bobby, and Noah last week. Everyone is doing fine and Emily is just an amazing mother. She has a big job with Noah and his feeding schedule while balancing her time and showing Bobby the attention that he needs now.

Both boys are just darling. Bobby calls me "Nanny" and is very much all boy. He also loves music Check Spellingand dancing. Noah has beautiful coloring and a head full of dark hair. Here are my favorite photos from the week.

Welcome Baby Noah!

Emily, Robert, and Bobby, welcomed in the new addition to their family on December 1. Noah Walter Howell weighing in at 7 lbs, 9oz. and 20 inches long.

Dan and I drove to Greenville yesterday afternoon to give him a squeeze and kiss. He is the first baby in the family to arrive with a full head of hair -- thick dark and curly. He is so cute!

Emily and Robert both looked weary. I hope they get some rest before Noah goes home to be with Bobby. Emily and Robert will have their hands full. I hope Noah is as good a baby as Bobby. I have plans to stay with them the week of December 13th -- can't wait!
