Unless you haven’t checked your email lately, you probably saw that we had our baby boy yesterday and named him Atticus, after Archbishop Atticus of Constantinople, of course. The birth went relatively smoothly and they should be coming home from the hospital later tonight. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:

Em getting started

We’re immensely grateful that everything went well and feel that we’ve been very blessed. We hope you are all doing well.

Happy New Year!

Just wanted to sneak in one last entry so we hit 30 posts in 2013.  For 2014 I am resolving to post on here more often and I think it would be cool if we all did the same.  I don’t call most of you guys as much as I should so this site is the main way I find out what is going on in your lives.  It would be a real shame if this blog fizzled out.  So let’s keep it going strong and post even if you aren’t making fun of Dan Jennejohn.

As for me I just got back from Christmas in Idaho where I grew a manly beard, went snow boarding, and shot clay pigeons with a shot gun.  It was nice to get out of the metropolis.  Spence it’s too bad your family doesn’t live in IF anymore.  We could have hung out.

Anyway here are some pictures from my trip and some pictures of my adorable daughter.
