pictures from revival at Everett, PA

Ready to go on his first trip

Myers dog April was "protecting" Jaren. :)

Bryon really enjoyed Jaren

Granny teased Dan a lot that she was going to take Jaren home with her. She was lots of fun.

Jaren wants everyone to know that "he still lives at home with his parents" :)

Home at last and other news updates

For those of you who didn't know for the last week we have been in Everett, PA doing a revival. God helped in many ways and we are thankful for that. We also enjoyed our time with the Bryon Myers family.

This was Jaren's 1st trip and he did pretty well considering the new place and all. we had a few not so great nights. He is now 5 1/2 weeks old and starting to lose all his hair on the top of his head. It makes me sad to see him losing it but maybe he won't lose it all.

I will try to post pictures within the next couple of days.

In other news I want to say congrats to my sister on Graduating from college. We are so proud of you Melissa. Also my brother Ken's girlfriend graduated the same day. Congrats to Micaela too. Dan's brother Tim graduated from college also. Congrats to him as well. My nephew Jay graduated from Kindergaten the next day and we are so proud of him on a job well done.

Four weeks old

Hi all, Well Jaren is 4 weeks old today. We are so happy with him. He is more alert everyday and night. Last night he decided to be awake a good deal of the night.
In other news Jaren is going to be getting a new cousin today. Dan's brother Tim and his wife are having a baby. They are having a boy. Along with that news Tim and Sarah live in Missouri and Wednesday night while they were at the hospital thinking the baby was going to be born, their home was destroyed by a Tornado. Thankfully they were not at home during the storm.
This last week Brad, Katie and Lily Bird came to visit. Lily holding Jaren's hand.

Happy Mothers Day

1st Mother's Day with Jaren Daniel

Just want to wish My mother and Mother in law a wonderful mothers day. Hope you have a great year and you both are wonderful grandmas to Jaren. Also Happy Mothers Day to all you other Mothers out there. It is such a privilege to be a Mother and yet such a responsibility to raise them in the way that is right.

Jaren update

Jaren had his first dr appt yesterday and everything went well. He weighs 7lbs 5ozs and is 20in long. He is growing very fast. We sure love our little boy! He makes us smile many times and really enjoys being spoiled by friends and family. Uncle Glenn and Aunt Nette and cousins Jay and Lauren are going to be here for a couple days from Montana. He will get really spoiled then. Grandma Hellmann was here for a few days this past weekend to see her first grand baby! Grandma Ritchey leaves for Wyoming on Tues and is not looking forward to leaving her new grandson behind, but she is excited and ready to be home with her Hubby. Pappy is really looking forward to seeing Jaren in June when they come back east.
