The First Birthday of Jasmine

Jasmine’s party was last week, but she is officially one today. Happy birthday, nieta!

If the pictures on Facebook are any indication, Mom and Dad had a real barn burner of a birthday celebration. I saw miniature horses and pigs, goats and all kinds of fun stuff. I snagged these pictures to post here. Look how happy Tim looks! Carry has the most beautiful smile. Jassy is giving us the peace sign.

Many thanks for sharing the pictures, Carry.

Jasmine Olivia Elhajj!

Last night, June 13, 2009, at 2:23 A.M. (EST), Jasmine Olivia Elhajj arrived, weighing 6 lbs 15 oz.

This morning I woke up to a slew of messages on my cell phone, all of them from Timmy. In the messages from last night, he sounded giddy and excited; in this morning’s, he sounded sleepy but pleased.

We spoke a few hours ago and he filled me in on some of the details. Carrie is doing fine after a long and difficult labor, which she handled like a trouper. Tim found watching his child come into the world to be a very emotional experience. Jasmine sounds like a peaceful little girl. She’s pink, with little to no hair, and a cute little dimple under her chin.

Great Wolf Lodge Birthday Adventure

This sequence of photos is from the indoor water park at Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mounds, Washington. That’s 1000 gallons of water spilling from a very large bucket, suspended maybe 40 feet high. We celebrated the kids and my birthday here, a chain hotel and water park about 70 to 80 miles from our house.

We had fun, but everyone agreed it was not as good as Camelback, the water park in the Poconos that my sister Tina and her husband Steve treated us to the last time we were in Pennsylvania.
