Couldn't Be Happier

So the moment that McKay and I have anticipated for 9 months has finally arrived! We had a beautiful baby girl on November 3rd, 2008; at 1:39 a.m. Our precious Brielle Rae Lauritzen has been so wonderful already and we couldn't be more elated to be parents. We thank all of you for your love and support during this exciting time and cannot wait for you to meet our little blessing.

Happy Halloween!!!

Yesterday was a beautiful Halloween here in Ridgecrest. The day started out with a semi-warm rain, stayed overcast all day, and left us with a calm evening... It was a lot of fun. McKay and I went to the bread and milk dinner at church, to the truck-or-treat afterwards, and then to a good neighborhood where Mom, Mike, Emma, Samantha, and the two of us went door to door. How did McKay get around? Like a king in his wheelchair! Luckily last night Mike did all the pushing for me. Emma seemed to really enjoy her first true trick-or-treat outing. Unfortunately, her and Samantha had a hard time getting the concept down. When I was little we ran door to door. Run + Houses with Lights on = more candy. Apparently not for these two chicks. But they had fun and that's what matters.
