Welcome to the World William!

Just in case you've been wondering where I've been and why I haven't posted....

Meet William Thomas born Wednesday, June 29 2011.
8lbs. 9oz   21.5inches long  
We couldn't be more excited!

You just wouldn't believe how it all happened, I still can't!
You may of seen stories on the news stations about the Las Conchas fire in New Mexico. 
My husband and I packed up some of our more personal valuables on Sunday night June 26 and left our 
home to stay in Santa Fe, NM. At this point the fire was only 6000 acres, by morning time it had grown to 
48,000 acres! I was 38 weeks along in my pregnancy and we knew we had to come up with a plan just in case I went into labor.

After talking to my OB we decided to drive the ten hours to Norman, Ok the closest destination with family. We stayed Monday night at the hotel in Santa Fe and started off early tuesday morning to the great state of Oklahoma! My husband, son, and myself arrived at my parents house at 8pm that Tuesday night...

My water broke 6 hours later at 2am!!!!
 And since I had never been to that hospital I was set up with
the on call OB, who just happened to be the same doctor that delivered my husband 29 years earlier!!!!
Hard to believe right!!! And to add to our little adventure, a couple of local news stations came by with their news cameras to the hospital room to interview us. What an experience that was!

Everyone at the hospital was so great as were all our friends and especially our families!
We are home now and so thankful to have a home to go to! 
Praise God!
