I must admit. . . I'm bored at work. How often does that happen? Quite for me lately. I believe I'm in the January slump where I just don't feel like it. Interesting enough we've found a way at work that I won't get caught looking at blogs :) I bet it won't last too long. I also had to make a quick post because my sister says I never post any more. Love you crazy woman!!

Jimmy's Havin' a Blast

So yesterday James got to go hang out with his brother, Daren, and a friend, Jeremy. They chose to put their day to good use and go snowmobiling. They went up Tony Grove. They say it was very nice and warm. The found themselves a jump that was meticulously formed by some snowboarders. It worked well for snowmobiles too:

Daren's height should give you an idea of how big this jump is.

James in flight.

A little tipsy on this round!

James landed safely. So did the sled. See it way up there?

Happy brothers. Look hard. James looks like part of the tree.

Welcome Home, McKenna!

McKenna got to go home this morning! Little swee-ie did so good with her eating and growing. She is home with mommy and daddy now, in Perry. Before they headed that direction, they called me so I could come see her. Here we are!

And here she is in the NICU when my mom and dad got to hold her for the first time.

More McKenna Mae

Yesterday Heather, Mom and I went to Heather's baby shower. The hard part was that it was minus a baby. It was good for Heather to get out a little bit. It was an exhausting trip for her though. Josh and Heather are staying with James and I for a bit. At least until McKenna is released from the hospital. It's a joy to have them around. And I got to see cute McKenna through the NICU window today. She is just adorable. I can't wait to get my hands on her!

Here is a video that Roxy helped me make so we could have cute pictures of the babe.

Ok, So the video was 116 MB and the blogging program only accepts up to 100 MB. Oh well. I'll try to do a slide show instead.

McKenna Mae Wilderness has arrived! It came sooner than we expected. She is about 5 weeks premature. But looks very good. I'm so excited! She's such a cutie. She was born on 1/5/09 at 2:03 AM. She weighs in at a whopping 5 lbs 14 oz and is 19 inches long. She is doing so amazing for a preemie. Everyone is doing well. For the time being, McKenna is in NICU. Mom and Dad didn't get to hold her until tonight, but it seems all is going as natural. Here's some sweet pics of the little cutie. . .

Congratulations brother! Much love to Josh and Heather! Way to go!
