October has been busy!

As if my baby girl being born was not exciting enough, I have also been blessed to be part of some wonderful weddings this month. One of them was in the King Ranch, which up until now, I have only had the pleasure of driving past on my way north.

Michelle was a stunning bride and was up for almost anything. This was evident when I didn't even get a hesitation upon suggesting that we pull in to a nasty back alley to shoot this shot. Turned out pretty cool, huh.

Two people madly in love, sunset in the Kings Ranch, closest family and friends......... what more do you need? Jacqueline and Michael's answer - Nothing.

Everyone is at home and doing well.

These pictures were taken on the 10th and are a little deceiving. It appears that everyone is getting plenty of sleep.......... not the case, I assure you.

Hannah's sleep style resembles her daddy's unfortunately for her.

The package said that the pacifier was for newborns. You could dispute that by looking at the pacifier to face ratio in this picture.

Hannah is here!

Well after being fashionably late (1 week) Hannah has graced us with her presence. The Lord has blessed Page and I with a beautiful little girl. She was born on Monday October 8th at 2:44 pm. Check out the pics.

Page's mood changed significantly after the epidural.

She's a little messy but still pretty cute!

Dr. Gabriel (a true pro) and new family.

Hannah's first moments included poking, prodding, weighing and more. Although she was most uncomfortable, dad didn't show much mercy as he clicked away.

Wife and daughter. How did I get so lucky?

Passing on a prayer request.

The following statement was written by a friend who puts on a local surf report. If you have time please include Mike and his family in your prayers and feel free to write them if you want to.

So... had the privilege of teaching a high school basketball coach how to surf recently, his team just made the state finals, got a box of championship tshirts and even a pair of team nike court shoes from the guy, he's pretty proud of his team I'm sure, and I'm guessing they are plenty stoked on him. Well, his name is Mike, 6'+++, big ol' boy, always wanted to surf. So he gets a few waves, pretty dang clumsy I must admit (sorry Mike) but thats to be expected for a guy in his 40's that's never surfed, but he got a few, and was stoked as any grom. He wouldn't quit emailing me about what a great time he had surfing... but its such a refresher to hear about some one's "first time". One email said that he bought a bunch of Indo Boards for the team for training...go figure. I think it was for him. Well, today his wife calls, said Mike never stops talking about surfing, but during his lesson, he felt really clumsy and uncoordinated, and so he goes to his doc for a checkup and tells doc that he felt like he couldn't keep his balance. Doc does a catscan... and Mike finds out he has a massive brain tumor. His wife called me today from the waiting room to let us know he was going through an 11 hour brain surgery. I'm not sure of his prognosis, she said he had paralysis and to pray for him. So, if any of you have a moment say a prayer for Mike, or a word of support, here's his email .
