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! ; )

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!!! :)
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!
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 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!
