Mara Sandra Lund

Mara arrived January 15th at 5:41 PM. She was 8 lbs 12 oz and 19 inches long. Nate's family and some of our friends came and saw us up at the hospital which was a lot of fun. Both girls were spoiled with gifts. Lexi received an Elmo doll which she quickly shared with Mara. She also tried feeding her some of her bread. We are so blessed to be surrounded with people who love and care for our family.

Happy 2nd Birthday Alexandria Marie

Two years have come since Lexi was born. She is such a joy to have around. We had a great time with Nate's family for dinner to celebrate. Lexi's Grandma Lund made her a beautiful dress. My mom and sister were also able to come out which is always fun. We had a birthday breakfast with them. In the past two years from getting to know Lexi's personality one word to describe her would be love. She loves to help, give hugs and kisses, and is usually happy and has a very contagious laugh. We are very blessed to be her parents.

Christmas at the Lunds

We had a fun Christmas. Unfortunately I had a cold which would have been fine except when you are pregnant you can't really take any medicine. So...we watched a movie Christmas Eve and went to bed early. Luckily, I felt a lot better Christmas day. Lexi loved her new toys. Our neighbors asked us if we wanted their toys that they were giving away, so I saved them to give to Lexi for Christmas. She LOVED the door. The best part about Christmas is taking a day to simply be together and celebrate the birth of Christ.

Celebration of Thanksgiving

We had a very Merry Christmas. We had a great Thanksgiving with Nate's sister Julia and her family coming out to celebrate Thanksgiving. It is always fun when they come out. The highlight for me personally is we usually have a girls afternoon or something with no kids. Nate's parents set up their Christmas decorations which includes a train around the tree. The grand kids absolutely love the train. Lexi was sitting next to her cousin Kameron while watching the train and spontaneously decided to give him a kiss! It was very sweet.
