Sunday was Erin's baptism. What a beautiful picture of the covenant that we are partakers of. I love the look on both of the girl's face. The beauty of being in the family of God.

Audrey our 5 year old!

Our Audrey is 5 years old. I can't believe how fast 5 years has gone bye. What a go getter she is! From trapping with daddy to playing in the snow, to doing her school and dressing up for church. We love our little Audrey, though she's not so little anymore. I can't believe that she's really grown all these years in our Powell home.

Your 5th birthday party, a Tinker bell party!

What a great party we had with friends and both sets of grandparents! 
We love so you much Audrey. 
We look forward to seeing what God has in store for you. May you follow after Him with all you heart, soul, mind and strength.

2 weeks old!

I'm a day late, but yesterday Erin was two weeks old. I can't believe that two weeks has come and gone. Lucas and I took Erin to her doctor yesterday for her check up and she's already grown another inch, so 21 inches and is now 8 lbs 14 oz.,  2 oz more then her birth weight.

Happy Valentine's Day!

First for Biggest Sister!

Audrey was finally all better from being sick. So she got to hold her baby sister for the first time today. She was in heaven! If I had let her, she would have held her all day.

One week today!

Our beautiful little Erin is one week old today! I can't believe that it's already been a week. Though in some ways it seems longer and I think that has to do with the sleeplessness. We just love our third little girl and are so blessed by God to have her in our lives. We look forward to all that God has in store for her as she serves Him.

Love the beanie that Aunt Vicki gave her. Isn't she so adorable (though I think I'm a little bias)? 
Thank you God for our Erin.

The New Addition to the Swanson Clan

So our day started out pretty normal, checking the trap line together which Lucas got this beautiful fox!

Then it finished with Our little Erin Lauren being born!
She was born January 30th at 12:16 am MST weighing in at 8 lbs 12 oz. 20 inches long.
She's named after her daddy (Lucas Aaron) and her Papa Reiter (Loren Dale).

Everything went really well! I only had to push for 2 1/2 minutes. 

Proud daddy of three girlies!

God is so good! What a amazing blessing she is to our family. Sorry we have no pictures of the girls with Erin, they've been sick so we're trying to get them better before they hold her.
