Aurora Shelley Ray II w/ fam















Jason Bruce was very gentle, and Rhoda was more interested in the camera than her new little sister.














We are out-numbered---- ahhhhhhh (for you Gardners out there- " Babe, whaddo I do?")














That robe was the best Christmas gift ever. Doesn't she look great?!














I had high hopes of going to church... that idea didn't work out so well














I don't know how we fit them all in there, but we did!!!














Rhoda sure loves her football.














Look at that hair!!!!














She hasn't opened her eyes much, so this was a treat.

Aurora Shelley Ray


Aurora Shelley Ray was born on Jan 30, 2009 at 1:18 am.

She weighed 8 lbs, 11 oz
with a height of 20 inches &
head circumference of 14.25 in.

Edythe was a champ and did an awesome job delivering the baby. Both she and Aurora are doing very well and are set to come home Sunday morning. I'll get more pics sent out soon.

She is sleeping, eating, and doing all that she needs to be a happy and healthy baby. It looks like she is our first "pure Gardner" baby, given all the hair on her head!!

More pics to come soon.

More Pictures from the Little Nativity



Little Nativity






We tried to re-enact the Nativity on Christmas Eve with the Checketts (my sister's family). Aunt Jessica helped the kids get in their costumes and her husband and I took pictures while Jason tried to pose everyone and narrate the story! It was a great memory!

Fun in the Snow






Our kids had a great time seeing snow for the first time!
