Justice is sold!

Within days of Nathan's birth, I sold one of my horses. S.Upreme Justice found a nice home with a woman who will be using him as a hunter. She's enjoying him and I'm really happy that he has someone to love him every day now!

At home

Buddy meets Nathan.....

Coming home

We're on our way home!! Yea!!

The Hospital

I was in the hospital for 5 days.... We had visits from Grandma, Mimi and Poppi, Colleen and Camille, and "uncle" Steve.

Time with Daddy

Looking at Daddy... Forever Lady Antebellum "Lady A" will be immortalized! Lol

Our first views of our little one!

We welcomed Nathan Glenn Hodgson to our family on August 16, 2011. He weighed in at 8 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 1/9 inches long--a pound heavier than Bri and he arrived 9 days early! Thankfully, he was born by C section at 4:32 am. All went well overall. Our lives have changed forever! ; )

Cute pictures

I just liked these pictures.... We are so blessed to have this little girl in our lives!

The WELCOME party

Well, they had a part of the Welcome party that involved the kids getting up and watching while a very scary local CHIEF danced and played drums really loudly. She had to say her name into a microphone in front of a really big crowd of people.... she did so well!! We were all quite impressed. I guess Hawaii just has that affect on people.... ( Ali, ALOHA!!! :)

Making Friends

Brianna proved to be a very social toddler. I would tell her to go over to the kids and say HI and she would just wiggle her way into playing with them! She met a very nice family of three girls ages 5, 8, and 10 who just adored her.... She played with them like 3-4 times. It was quite cute to see how outgoing she was!

Hawaii at last.....

Enjoying the surf and pool!

New addition!

Well, we now have a new addition to our family..... Her name is Easter. ( It was Esther, a horrible name, so we had to amend it!) She's an adorable 6 month old german shepard. Our other canine family members are getting a little older, especially Irish. I feel a little scared here when Rob isn't home so wanted a dog that was somewhat intimidating in look. I think that she will be perfect! She's very sweet and so far has been really a good girl. We took her on a walk and she was an angel, practically heeled on her own! So cool. But, she is a puppy... likes to chew. I hope we don't lose anything valuable in this puppy process. Anyways, just wanted to introduce her to everyone!

Christmas Eve 2010

Christmas Eve we went to church, then we were off to Ann Wanger's for a wonderful dinner.... Bri was decked out in her Christmas outfit and looking pretty darn cute, but I'm not at all biased! Santa's on his way (we hope).... she's been a really good girl!

Christmas ribbon!

Bri and Goat were helping me wrap presents this past week. Well, "helping" me is maybe stretching the truth! ; ) But, they were certainly having fun!

Firehouse Christmas

On Wednesday, we went to station 20 for a wonderful Christmas feast. There were lots of kids and presents and fun was had by all!! Bri was having a blast as is apparent in these pictures.....
