The chair Savannah is sitting in belonged to Savannah's great-great grandma Spratling. I wonder how many babies have been rocked in this chair? If furniture could talk! And now we rock our babies to sleep in this chair when we come home for a visit. The top floor aka "girl floor" in my parents home is now officially abandoned since Ash left for college this fall. But it really it is the prettiest place in the house. Very bright, cool closets and awesome white woodwork and windows. If decorated right, i think it could be in a martha stewart magazine. It's just so cute. The view from this window is the best,looking out over the deck, to the orchard(my mom refers to this as "her secret garden") and beyond that the wheatfields. I feel like i'm narrating a home decorating channel right now. haha. Well anyway, on that note. Tune in next time to Amie's home network and i'll have something equally boring to talk about i'm sure.

A Blessed Day
My older brother Ben and Cindy blessed their new baby girl ,Savannah, while they were up here in Oregon for Christmas. It was such a neat day! They performed the blessing in our home, (instead of the usual church meeting) and we got to celebrate this special little girl. Savannah is very very VERY calm, and was appropriatly named after my mother ,Savannah Colette, who also has a very calming influence on those around her, most of the time :). Of course she could have also been named after Cindy who has that same affect on people. Well, atleast on me. We really didn't have much time to take pictures, so we did what we could with the little day light that was left in the upstairs bedroom before everyone arrived. sorry Cindy I wish we would have had time to get a better shot, but a few turned out pretty sweet.
once again, I couldn't decide which one I liked better, the sepia or color.
