On January 28 at 7:58 am, we welcomed Max Hamilton Guzman into our family. Weighing in at a hefty 8 pounds, 12 ounces, he was definitely a bit bigger than we had anticipated (especially after being told he was small at our ultrasound!). We were thrilled that he was healthy and feel so blessed to add another boy to our crew.
We have had several helpful and loving visitors to cook, clean and play--and basically make our lives a little easier during this exciting time. Griff and Diego have felt so special, celebrating their new brother and getting extra attention. It's pretty awesome to be a family with three boys...
We got some awesome snow and the boys have been tearing it up in the backyard!
They couldn't get enough of sweet Della

It's about negative one million in Indiana right now. And, while it has not been toasty here, it was warm enough today to head outside and play in the snow. I am so thankful for our big backyard and the sun that shines even in January. Griff would be happy to stay outside for hours...if only Diego would stay and play with him.
Fifteen minutes and done.
Eating snow...that's why it's there, right?!

2013 was the year of NEW for us. We feel immensely blessed that Jose was hired for a direct position that seems like it will last for years. We learned we would be welcoming a new babe into our family. And, we purchased a new home (new in this sense meaning a foreclosure requiring a lot of work). While there were times when we struggled to trust that the Lord would use all of the unknown for good, the lessons we have learned during this year well outweigh the worry and waiting. So, farewell 2013--we are thankful for what you gave us and oh so ready for 2014!

Finishing off the year with our best Christmas tree yet!
