Welcome Ty David!

It has already been 8 days since our new addition! Ty David Shirley was born on December 11th at 9:55 am. It was a special treat because it was Grandma Keller's birthday the same day. He weighed 6lbs 15 oz and was 21 inches long. (I will write more later) I had my friend, Sarah take these pics when he was 3 days old! I thought they turned out marvelous! How thankful we are for this new gift right in time for Christmas!

Kid Pics

Some new pics of the Shirley Kids! They were taken in October by my photographer friend and I am finally getting around to posting them and ordering them. I think they turned out adorable and yah, I realize I am a little biased.

How smart they are!

Hailey was sitting by me holding our bunny and watching me fold laundry. She looked at me with her big brown eyes and innocent little face and asked, "Who do you hate more? Chandra the dog or the bunny?" I had to explain to her how I don't really hate them but don't like the naughty things they do like ruin my carpet, scratch my windows, and poop all over. Dave keeps reminding me that our dog is still just a baby! I'm on my way to having 2 babies!

Elf on the Shelf

Last night for FHE we revealed our new Christmas friend the "Elf". We read the book, "The Elf on the Shelf" and had miniature elf treats. All of the kids were excited to behave and make the elf magical. This morning Hailey told me that "Chuck" (that is what we named our elf) is really not real but can I still hide him every night anyway!

Yah BYU!

It is always a good day when BYU beats rival Utah especially in OT! I had to go down to my friend Marilyn's house to watch part of the game because we don't have the right channel and Dave was already at the game. She surprised me with an early baby gift. A blue and brown fleece BYU blanket! I can't wait to wrap up our baby boy in this soft, big blanket!
