Matt Davis’ Surprise Birthday Party

Today was the borthday of at least three people that I know.  In order of how long I’ve known them, there was Margie Revill, the mother of my best friend Jason Revill; Britt Jensen, one of my siter Erin Dotsey’s best friends; and Matt Davis, whom I know through church.

The Duke message board I frequent was pretty shocked by …

First Baby Pictures

These are the scanned-in images taken of our eight week, two day old baby from the doctor visit yesterday.  I’m calling it Pistachio until we learn the sex (because Peanut is too common a name).
