These pictures were Lesley's idea. She took the comforter to FedEx and had it copied. They match perfectly and look great.
I love this crib and the set. Mike got it for me. The blanket on the rocking chair is one that my friend Amanda made. I love it and it matches the room perfectly.
These curtains my sister, Shimayne, made. We love them!
This changing table and armoir are beautiful. The magnet board my mom got for us. It says "Our Little Miracle." Brielle truly is a miracle.

Mom and Dad with Brielle


This was our Christmas present.

This is Brielle in her Naarjtie (place her dad works) purple outfit.

Brielle is not quite 2 months in this picture. This was the picture we sent out for our christmas cards.
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway. - Mother Teresa
