Temple Square Lights

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Many of you do not get the opportunity to go down to Temple Square in Salt Lake City and see the Christmas Lights.  Our family went down on Monday and I took some pictures to share with you.  Hopefully they will bring back some memories.    

My brother is a father!

Last night Ben and Melissa Ellis became parents at 9:12 p.m. “Henry” as the nickname will probably forever stand was born on December 14th, 2007. He weighed 6 lb. 13 oz and was 19 inches long. He came very healthy and had a good set of lungs as we sat in the hallway listening to him scream. I do not want to steal the thunder of Ben and Melissa talking about the experience on their own blog, but I will leave you with a few pictures that I took last night so that you can see what he looks like.

Ben talking to his sister Clyda about the birth. He just kept walking around in circles telling her all that had happened. He had his other sister Jana on hold waiting to hear what he had to say as well.
Melissa showing us “Henry”. This is about an hour after he was born. They hadn’t settled on any names just yet.
Melissa showing us “Henry’s” big feet. She says he has big hands and feet. He did not like her doing this, because just after I took the picture he cried real hard until Melissa covered him back up. I think it was just a little too cold to have a foot outside of the blanket.

I know these two proud parents will have a lot to say on their blog about “Henry” including what his real name will be. So make sure you checkout their blog in the next week once they get home and settled down.
