3D/4D pictures

The sonographer was wonderful, and she took some fabulous 3D pictures. It is so incredible to actually see all her features.
In this pictures she has her right arm up by her face and her left hand under her chin. You can also see the umbilical cord under her chin and in between her arm and face. Amazing!!
In this picture, I think she looks just like her daddy. There is a baby picture of him for his birth announcement, and it looks like they have the same lips. It is pretty incredible.
Here she is looking down a little bit more.
"I'm not telling!" In this picture, she has both hands right in front of her mouth. You can also see her umbilical cord inbetween her arms.
These pictures are incredible. Technology is absolutely amazing. Don't forget to scroll down to see all the other pictures.

Sweet Noah

Sweet Noah Rathbone was born on December 15th, 2008. We all have been waiting for the arrival of this precious one for a very long time. Steven and I even had lunch with Megan and Dave the day before his arrival and talked about how we just couldn't wait for him to come. I had been looking forward to being Megan's nurse, and as you can imagine, was very excited when I got a text from her on Monday morning around 5:15 saying that her water broke. I headed into the hospital around 6:45, just a few minutes before my shift started, to assure that I would be assigned as her nurse (I was already working that day, so it was perfect). I felt so honored to be her nurse and to be a part of the delivery. Megan was fabulous and so courageous, and little Noah was born by c-section around 1 pm and weighed 6lbs. 6oz. Just perfect! He is absolutes adorible (as you can tell by the pictures), and mom and baby were able to go home today. I posted a few pictures of Noah, Mom, and Dad. What a precious new family!!
He is so perfect. Sweet little features, and a nose and lips that look just like his mom's. He is going to be so spoiled and so well loved!!
Doesn't he look perfect in her arms? She is such a natural!
Bringing Noah to see mom for the first time after the c/s.
Such a proud Daddy!! And awesome helper.

Christmas Tree

Here is our beautiful Christmas tree. This weekend Steven and I went and picked it out with the Prums. It was a lot of fun, and perfect weather because it was snowing lighty. It is now a tradition for the Lucks and the Prums to pick out our trees together, and I hope it continues.!

Here is a pic of Steven and Nate as they bring the Christmas trees to Nate's car. Look how cute they are with trees that match their height!

We went to Marshall Highschool, which we have done for the past 3years. We have loved our tree we have gotten from there each year.
