Say Hello to Hazel Abigail

We are happy to announce that our baby girl is finally here! I went into labor, 6 days late, last Saturday night. We went to the hospital and 8 hours later, we have a new member of our family. She was 10.1 pounds and 21 inches long! A big baby! I am still in shock. I only pushed for about 15 minutes and everything seemed very calm and relaxed. It was very pleasant- as far as birthing goes. She is a beautiful little girl with lots and lots of red hair. In fact, it is exactly the same color as Marston's hair when he was born. Who knew that we would get 2 kids with beautiful red hair. She is very sweet and we are thrilled to have her here.

This is William, Hazel's cousin, born only a day after her. 

This is Marston when he was about a week old. Same color hair as Hazel.

Halloween 2010

We had a great Halloween weekend. Friday we joined Daniel's parent's ward trunk-or-treat in Placerville. We mostly ate chili and hotdogs and socialized with Dan's old ward rather than collecting candy with Marston-he would not keep his costume on. It was a lot of fun. Saturday was our ward's trunk-or-treat. We made Marston wear his costume and once he figured out that when he had it on he got candy, he kept it on. It was combined with 4 Lincoln wards and there were a ton of families. Daniel went as a cowboy and I went as mother earth (I made a felt earth and pinned it to my tummy).  We had a really good time. Sunday we just handed out candy to our neighborhood kids. Every time the doorbell rang, Marston would run to the door ready to put candy in the kid's bags. I'm a little sad Halloween is over. It is really one of my favorite holidays. Now I have to wait a whole year for the festivities to begin again.

The only way he would keep his costume on is when we were collecting candy at our ward's trunk-or-treat.
