I am Amazed

I am so very amazed at you, my fellow bloggers.... I have never read such heartfelt tributes, and wonderful dedications to the children lost yesterday, and the adults who were lost with them.   I hope we can find it in our hearts to be like parent Robbie Parker, who made such a loving tribute to his beautiful daughter, and asked us to find in our hearts the power to forgive the man who brought such sadness into everyone's lives.
Our day was blessed to spend with these from our own family:

Amber and Jace
Amber, Jace, Lauren and Grandma Trudy 

Your bloggers
Granpa Ralph and Jace's daddy Jesse were there, too.  We ate lunch at The Hereford House in Shawnee, Kansas... and let me tell you, we were treated like royalty, with a private room and lots of room for our gift exchange.  We had wonderful lunches and very good desserts.
But here, folks, is the best Christmas gift we could have received this year, and is, truly, proof of the Circle of Life:
Welcome Brynn Allison Lamb,
7:10 AM, 7 lbs 4 oz
Keith's first granddaughter, our first Christmas present.
