It was great to have the cousins together, to watch them play to hear them talk about their life, their friends, their classes and to realize that (with a bit of awe) that once again their is another generation of classy Guldes has entered the world!
Anyway, Curt fried a turkey without burning down the house. We had a fire in the backyard and roasted marshmallows, some of the fam went to the t.u. game to see the Aggies get defeated once again. We watched movies, wrestled, ate lots of really unhealthy food, talked and played. Couldn't have been better
We are glad to introduce you to the newest member of our family! Katherine Thérèse is a delight to us all and we are very blessed to have her in our family!
Jonathan and Emelie are thrilled with their new sister. Jonathan loves to kiss her little head. The other day, she was fussy at the end of a nap in her bouncy seat, and I went in to check on her. Jonathan had put his favorite stuffed puppy, Scruffy Gordon (he named him) on the top of her head! Needless to say, we do have to watch Jonathan with her – but all he does is done in love. Emelie is so helpful with Katherine. She loves to hold her and read her books. She’s a natural mother hen! She even has the mommy coo down pat!
Emelie just began her second semester of Kindergarten at

And me... I have been very busy with... ummm... Katherine! Negotiating her and school schedules and meals and cleaning (not to mention my design work) has been quite a challenge, but a joy all the same. Number 3 is definitely different from #1 and #2, but still a delight. Katherine just fits right in with the family.
Curt and I had a revelation when we pulled into the driveway, bringing Katherine home from the hospital. We knew there were two children waiting behind that door that were so excited to get their baby sister home – more excited than they were about the gifts under the tree at Christmas only a few weeks before. Children are certainly a gift from God. Katherine has reminded us all of that!
