baby kenny

our newest nephew has arrived. robert kenneth sopko koehler was born at 3:57 PM on monday, may 18, weighing in at 7 lbs. he has a full head of dirty blond hair. baby kenny is recovering from some respitory problems, but hopefully he will be discharged to go home friday or this weekend. we were able to see him for only an hour on monday, so we are anxious for him to be settled in at home. aunt lala needs more cuddle time!

i set up this blog about 2 years ago, made 2 posts, and forgot all about it. i'm back to try this again, and yes, i deleted the old, out-of-date posts.

we hosted our first "party" this past weekend at our home, which we have now been in for 21 months. my baby sister graduated from UTSA on saturday and we held a celebration party for her afterward. it was nice, fun to decorate and get ready for, and lace enjoyed herself which was the best part.

when we first moved in, we became crazed home improvement wannabes and did a lot of work. okay, trev did a lot of work, and i did a lot of assisting and directing. i became the painter and trev tackled most of everything else, including installing almost 1,000 square feet of laminate flooring with the help of his brother-in-law, michael. we plum wore ourselves out. but having this party was so great because we received compliments, and that makes all the difference. our home has become something we're proud of.

anyways, it's time now for some more work. we have plans to do a total overhaul of the garage beginning in june. i will keep you posted!
