Little sister is warning up to the camera...slowly. She seems to feel a little better every day and is showing more of her personality. I am getting the hair a little more under control, even though my stylist recommends we allow it stand straight up and accentuate it.

Dori Grace is such a little beauty. I can see you don't get anything done because you are busy playing with her.

Thanks for giving me the "smile" I really needed for the day! You are all just glowing, and I must say Walker is just a cutie. The yawn is priceless.

I told Lori me and Mrs. K. want to go to lunch soon, like next week.

I just got a chance to view your blog and I'm so glad that I did. The new addition to the family is such a doll and incredibly adorable. Trisha and I were almost in tears at how happy your family looks. Dori Grace completes you. Congradulations and best wishes!
