Great Grandma and Grandpa Visit

When Preston was 7 weeks old, Great Grandma and Grandpa Peirce came up to visit. They couldn't come up sooner because they were down in Palm Desert. It was so great to see them and Preston loved meeting his Great Grandparents.

They treated us to lunch at Chevy's and Great Grandpa stopped to tell everyone he met that this was his Great Grandson. He is so proud.
Great Grandma made Preston this beautiful blanket, sweater and booties. We love them!

The search is over...

This is Aaron...and I'm happy to report some good news! I was just offered a position at Accenture, a global management consulting firm, as a Systems Integration Analyst. We are so very blessed, and I look forward to starting my new career! I'll be at their Sacramento location starting this mid-July. The first 6 weeks will be a training phase, 2 of which are in Chicago! Life is going to get crazy, but I'm so grateful. Since I'm not starting right away, Em is gonna head back to her job for just a month and then give 2 weeks notice right before I start. Thanks to all those who offered prayers and support, it really meant a lot :) I really feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.

Luke Matthew Coons

Welcome to our newest nephew Luke!

7lbs 11oz Born May 9 at 10:24pm
Lyndsey was due today, the 11th, but had Tommy 3 weeks early and Caitlin 8 days early. We went down to Alamo Thursday night and stayed til Sunday night and I thought for sure we would be there when this little guy came. Instead we were there when Lyndsey's water broke and she went into labor. We were arriving back in Roseville just as he was born. We can't wait to meet this precious guy, only 2 months younger than Preston. I'm sure they'll be best buds!

Mother's Day

I have looked forward to this day my whole life and couldn't be more grateful to be a mother to this little angel.

I am also so grateful for my own mother who has taught me patience and love and has been a perfect example of motherhood.
