The Skeltons

Angela, Blake and Erika Skelton stopped in this morning to see Emma. We know the Skelton’s through our daughters music school and the youth orchestra.

Sarah, Rachel and Blake all play together in a string quartet also, along with Katelyn Sand.

Thanks for the book you brought for Emma!

Aaron Johnson

Aaron Johnson stopped in while the Haleys were here. Aaron is a friend from Parish Presbyterian Church, where we’ve been attending now for several months, and plan to join soon.

Aaron loves babies and jokingly suggested I send this picture to his wife. I did, with a subject of “Uh Oh” and message body that said “He wants one.” her response came back “Not even funny, dude!”

Thanks Pamela and Aaron for the embroidered burp cloth!

The Riffels

Larry and Jill Riffel stopped by to visit Emma, and I got pictures of them. Amy has known the Riffels for a couple years now due to Sarah, and now Rachel too, being part of the Williamson County Youth Orchestra. Larry is President of the WCYO board, and their son Nicholas plays viola.

I’ve gotten to know the Riffels better myself since recently being invited to join the WCYO board.

Thanks for the hand knitted blanket and booties, Larry and Jill!

Alice Stafford

We know the Staffords from Zachary’s travel soccer team. Their son Chandler is the team’s primary goalkeeper – and a very good one.

Alice stopped by today to see Emma, and I took this photo of the two of them. Thanks for the baby clothes and balloons Alice!

We’ll miss you guys when you move to Memphis, but we’re looking forward to seeing you at the Superclubs tournament in May.

A few more photos

Unfortunately, for the moment the only picture I can post are from my iPhone. If I remember to grab a card reader from home or the office, I’ll be able post some better pictures taken with a 21 megapixel Canon 5D Mark II.

Until then, here are a few more pictures taken with the iPhone.
