Just to let you know I am alive

I just thought I would do a post to let you know I haven't quit blogging, just been a bit under the weather. I came down with a really bad cold Thanksgiving day and have not been able to totally shake it. I don't feel bad; the worst thing is trying to get sleep because when I lay down I start to cough.

We have a new nephew--actually a great nephew. His name is Jackson. He was born December 1 and weighed 9 pound 4 ounces! and was 20 1/2 inches long. Welcome to the world Jackson!

I have not been out with the camera in a while, so I will start with a video of Lorelei. She is changing so adorable as ever.

I started to send you an email today to see if things were alright.
Hope you're feeling like yourself before long.
Little Lucy is like Lorelei - she can get so loud. :)
Cute moments.

I'm hope you do shake it and get better soon.
Congrats on the new great nephew...That size sounds like my babies. Out of the 11 kids, 8 of them were over 9lbs.

Glad you are feeling better, Rose. We have missed you. That Lorelei is a pistol--isn't she??? What a cute laugh/scream!!!!

Welcome to the world, Jackson!!!!

Take care my friend.

I hope you are soon feeling better. I know how hard it can be to sleep when you are always coughing. I've had to sleep in a recliner at times because I couldn't lay down without coughing. Cute video of Lorelei.

I like the title and enjoying seeing and hearing the actual contest! :-) I hope your cold lets us soon. We're in a freezing mode with a sweeping cold front from Canada. It's a beautiful sunny day but only 14f with a wind chill of around 0.

Congratulations on the new addition to your family ~ WOW he is a big one! Get well soon, I have missed you and your blog updates! Sending *sweet* thoughts for your little sweetness Lorelei!

I'm sorry you are still feeling so badly. Getting rid of a cough is so hard to do. I usually sleep best in a half way upright position when I'm coughing. Hope you are better soon and get more sleep. Congrats on the new baby!

Good to have you back and to hear you are feeling better. Congratulations on the new nephew. Lorelei is so cute in the video.

I hope you shake this nasty cold soon. This is a terrible time of year to feel sick. (Of course, no time of year is a GOOD time to be ill.)
