A Mini Photoshoot

Brian and Julie came to visit this past week, and while they were here, we did an impromptu mini photoshoot with baby Laura! 


(This one is not too clear, but I thought it was pretty cute anyway!)


Look at those blue, blue eyes.
And here is another cutie who wanted to have his picture taken. :)

A New Baby and Family Time



We are so excited to have welcomed this little girl into our family!

Praise the Lord that Mommy and baby Janna are both doing very well.








Karis and Joey love their new baby sister.


Daddy was tired out, too ;)

Joey wanted to try out Mommy's bed.


This is currently my favorite picture of Janna.

Joe, Mary, and the kiddos, as well as all the Bartas, came for a visit to Nana and Papa's house last week.

 
A bunch of the cousins watching a movie together.

Things can get a little silly around our house.

Everyone enjoyed getting to meet and hold Janna.

Savannah is always excited to get another girl cousin.

Janna and Aunt Heidi.

The kiddos all love Noelle.

We had a lot of fun playing in the pool with the kids.

We had a wonderful time being together.
