Aaron and Carolina proudly announce the birth of little "Leo Thiago Thorp" born June 25th, 2009 at 6:30p.m. eastern standard time. Leo weighed in at 8 pounds, 13 ounces and is 21 and 1/4" long. The proud Mommy and Daddy are both doing fine, although exhausted. Is he cute, or what? Okay, that's coming from proud Grandparents. Congratulations, Aaron and Carolina. We love you.
Carolina and Aaron recently went for an ultrasound to find out if their precious little baby to be will be a boy or girl. As you can see from the pictures, they were thrilled to find out they were having a little precious baby boy. They bought their baby room furniture and will send pictures when all fixed up. Both sets of grandparents can hardly wait for this joyous occasion.
Stephen, Chantel, Jackson and Grayson had a fun weekend in a cabin in Flagstaff, Arizona where they enjoyed lots and lots of snow! Chantel's sister and family also went with them. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had a ball. They had one of the biggest snowstorms Flagstaff had gotten in quite some time. Who says Arizona is just desert and cactus?
A week ago Saturday we took Jackson and Grayson to Cabela's Sporting Goods Store. It is a huge store that also has alot of fun things for kids. As you can see, they have huge displays of animals and a gigantic fish aquairum. We spent several hours there. The boys had a ball. Grandma, of course, spoiled them with a few toys. Then we went to the Cracker Barrel for lunch. It was a fun day for Grandma and Grandpa with their two sweet grandsons!
Oh, it's so beautiful. I didn't know what was happening. I was afraid. Then I woke up and was being held tightly in such comforting arms. Then I heard the most beautiful voice say, "Christian Covenant Kruse, my precious child, enter into the joy of the Lord" Oh Mommy and Daddy, did I tell you how beautiful it is here? God is so beautiful! He is explaining to me how he is the creator of everything. He told me he created all of the heavens and earth and all that has breath. God told me he has a plan for everything that he does, but he knows it is very difficult for us to understand. Oh, Mommy and Daddy, please don't worry about me. God says he brought me here for a reason. He said I was special. Did you hear that Mommy and Daddy? I'm special and he has a plan for me. Please, Mommy and Daddy, can I stay here? Did I tell you how beautiful it is? I see every color of the rainbow. I hear such beautiful music. I see tens of thousands of angels. I can see forever. I see such a bright light from afar. It has a beautiful radianace and seems to be getting closer. God told me not to be afraid. He said that he is with me. God says that many have come before me. They are all precious souls who tried to be obedient to God while on earth. But I asked God, Why me? He said, my precious child, you will soon see the reason why I brought you here. Oh, Mommy and Daddy, did I tell you how beautiful it is here? That glowing light, it seems to be getting closer and closer. God told me again, do not be afraid. I can see forever. There are fountains flowing everywhere and there is music and singing. Oh please, Mommy and Daddy, can I stay here? That glowing light is now so close. Please God, tell me my purpose in heaven. My dear precious child, I have brought you here for a very special reason. Don't be afraid. That beautiful light, it is upon us now. It has a radiance of gold, silver and all of the the colors of the rainbow. It's so beautiful. I see angels. I see two angels with their arms extended towards me. Do not be afraid, my child. These are two of my most precious angels. They were your Mommy's Grandpa and Grandma. They were known on earth as Grandpa Great and Grandma Great. They were so full of love for their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. It was time for them to enter heaven, but they did so with a heavy heart because of the loved ones they knew they were leaving behind. My dear precious child, do you understand now why you are here. I think I do. Oh Mommy and Daddy, can I stay here? Can I please be their great grandchild in heaven, please. I think they need me as much as I need them. Oh, Grandma Great just picked me up and is holding me so tight in her arms. Grandpa Great is now holding me. I already feel so loved. They make me feel so special. Oh, I love it here. I think Grandma Great is singing to me but I don't hear any words. Oh, Grandma Great just whispered to me that she is humming. Grandpa Great is so funny. Oh, Mommy and Daddy, please can I stay? They said that they will watch over me until you get here. They seem so happy now. I know I'm supposed to be here. God says that you will talk to me every day through prayer. I love you both so much. Oh, Mommy and Daddy, I'm Home!
Here are some pictures of our beautiful daughter-in-law, Carolina and our son, Aaron. They are so excited about their first new little bundle of joy that should be arriving around June 18th. They have been out and about shopping for baby clothes and decorating the baby's room. Does that sound like fun or what? We love you both so much and can hardly wait for the arrival of our third grandchild. Something tells me that Lindsay's and Ginger's antiquing days will be changing to shopping for baby clothes.
