Last Wednesday

July 13, 2011...
Aaron and I got our very first niece!  Bella was born 10 minutes after Becca got to the hospital.  She is precious, and we can't wait to meet her and hold her and cuddle and smooch those cheeks.

We also had a super special supper date.  Molly got to meet her Great-Great-Auntie Van and Great-Great-Uncle Bill!  Aaron's great-aunt, Auntie Van and her husband, Uncle Bill, made the trip from Nebraska to Oklahoma City with their son, Doug, and his wife, Barb, to celebrate the Air Force retirement of their son, Shon.  It was a gift and a treat to meet up with them in the middle of July in the middle of the week.  Auntie Van is Aaron's grandma's (Mom Mom) sister.  The sadness can be overwhelming that Molly will never meet Mom Mom or Boppa (Aaron's grandpa), but she met the closest and next best when she met Auntie Van and Uncle Bill - and I told them so.
Talk about classy and stylish...
Mom Mom and her two sisters, Van and Evie, were born with style, grace, kindness, and beauty.
Auntie Van is in her nineties.  Unbelievable!
Uncle  Bill is funny and gentle, and I can just hear him talking when I look at this photo.


  1. I am so glad you got to see grandma and grandpa. I didn't realize they were in the same city (or close to you guys) when they came to see Shon.

  2. Shannon - Thanks for helping me with the spelling of Shon's name. I wasn't sure, and Aaron was asleep when I was typing it out. It was delightful to see them!

  3. What a delightful time! Wish we could have been there!!!!
