Family Visits

Don't you just love it when family comes in to town! My mom came for a week and a half to help out and boy was it nice to have her. Katelyn loved every minute of all the attention and spoiling. My dad came out for the last few days of her trip and even caught a track meet while he was here. He snagged 3rd in the high jump and 2nd in the shot put (I'm not a proud daughter or anything...). His 3rd place came behind two previous olympic jumpers. Next month he's competing in France. Not too shabby for a guy in his 50's. We loved having them so close for a few days. Also my grandpa came with my aunt to spend a day with our little ones. It was so cute to watch Katelyn cuddle with her great-grandpa.

Sarah Starley

We made it home today, Hooray! Sarah Starley was born February 7, 2008 at 12:27 in the afternoon. She weighed 6lbs 6oz and was 19 inches long. She is now weighing in at 5lbs 12 oz; she's so little!!!! Katelyn is very excited about 'her' baby and points out all the facial features to anyone who is interested or not. Sarah has her Mama's ultra long fingers so we may have to invest in a piano someday. Thanks so much for everyone who has helped us these past few days. We feel so blessed to have these two little girls in our home.

9 degrees of Starleys

So I tried to be cool like Bryce and Amy and when a longlost friend blogged me I thought I should check if I could link back to us. I started with Sarajane and ended up jumping all over the US. I found some other pastel artists out in the big ol' world and it was a lot of fun just to see how familiar so many families were. Like when you go to the mall and think I know them (but I never really do)? So thanks Devin and Monica Brady for connecting us back through Joey and Katie. If you ever have 15 minutes give it a try.

Okay so this really doesn't have anything to do with the post but Katelyn has been very into wearing her bookbag lately. Not even two and ready for school!
