It takes a village to raise a village!!

Miss Ellen will be two weeks old tomorrow, and my, how time has flown by! Thanks to each and every one of you who have brought food (or even offered to), helped with my daily mountains of laundry and dishes, or cared for the other children in some way! I keep thinking that one day that we won't be so much on the "receiving" end and can give back/pay forward such immeasurable kindness. We have added 3 children to our family in just 2 1/2 years! That's FIVE kids in 5 years and 4 months! Whew! I think I might take a break for a year or two! (Just kidding, Mom!!)
And, now for some cute baby pictures...

Ellen with big brother William

Already checking myself out!

Ellen and her great Granddaddy Jackson

Look at that peach-fuzz hair! Do we have a redhead on our hands? It's funny that the doctor thought she had a lot of hair from the ultrasound; well, she does, but it's just on the back of her head!
