Merry Christmas!

Well, first let me start off by saying, that I am very sorry that we have not sent out Holiday Cards this year. I just could not seem to get it together-why, I don't know....it may have something to do with me wanting to sleep while Mitchell is sleeping and the fact that we haven't been able to get any good shots of him while he is awake. Anyway, I am going to let this picture act as our Holiday Greeting Card. I hope each of you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks Granna!

We want to thank Granna for helping us out the past week! We will definitely miss her. She stayed busy keeping laundry clean (especially Mitchell's outfits), cooking and helping with Mitchell. Please come back and see us soon!

Coming Home

Well, I think this picture says it all-I'm terrified that you guys are sending me home with these people!!! Mitchell was not a very a happy camper the day that we were released from the hospital. Clay swears that it is because I had him dressed in a frilly outfit.

Happy Birthday Gigi!

We could not have made it without you these last couple of days. You were such a help with Mitchell, cooking and washing clothes! Please don't wait too long before you come back to visit. We love you!

Mitchell's friends and family con't......

Here is my side of the family....Gigi, Pop and Uncle James. And oops, I left off John Daniel from the last post......I think I still may have a little bit of pregnancy brain or, better yet, sleep deprivation!

Mitchell's friends and family

I just wanted to post a few of the many pics we took while in the hospital. We are blessed to have such wonderful friends and family! These first couple of ones are from Clay's side of the family....Granna, Daddy Warbucks :) , DeeDee and John Daniel. Do you see a similarity between all the generations in the Holder men???

Our Sweet Angel....

has finally arrived! Mitchell Reed Holder was born on Saturday, November 29th at 6:09 p.m. I was beginning to think that he would never make his debut! It was a very long day that resulted in a c-section but it was well worth it!!! Mitchell was born 8 lbs 8 oz and is 21 inches long. There is no question that he is a Holder. He looks just like Clay. Here are a few pics from the big day. Clay and I are so happy that he is here and truly feel blessed to have him in our lives. Thanks to all of you who stopped by, phoned, and sent emails/texts-we really appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. Look for more pics to come........
