Introducing...

...the newest little member of our family:

Audra Joy


I'll fill you in on all the details later, and we'll announce the contest winner soon.

For now, this mama needs some rest. We are just home from the hospital, and we're settling into home life. Our beautiful Audra is sleeping next to me in our bed, and I have promised Mark that I will join her in sleep just as soon as I finish typing this.

Blessings to each of you from this happy mama...

  41. Congratulations, Stacy and Mark, on a new, adorable little one to call your own. And a girl! I bet Ella is just tickled. :) Did your mom tell you I called her today and that I TOTALLY had you on my mind? I almost called, but after talking to your mom realized I would have interrupted your much needed nap! So know that the Lord is bringing you to mind and that you and your family are being thought of, prayed for and loved.

    Here's to restful sleep when sleep does come - for any and all of you in your beautiful, blessed family!

    Praising God with you for your newest little blessing,
    XO Camee
