Double Blessings have arrived.

Today Wednesday Aug. 29th, 2012 our baby became a father, and was blessed with two beautiful twin girls.
Zoe Lenore DeRoest (A) weighed 4 lbs. 7 oz., 17" tall,  made her appearance at 5:30pm.
Ginnivive Marie DeRoest  (B)
weighed 4 lbs. 9 oz., 17" tall, and made her appearance at 5:32 pm.
 Both Rodney and Lauren couldn't be any happier to have so many blessings enter into their lives. 
 As you can see all are doing wonderful.
 It is hard to believe that Rodney at 4lbs 6 oz. in this picture has made the full circle in life,                        and now welcoming in, little ones of his own.             What a wonderful family's first photo.  
 Our joy is overflowing.

Harlow's 1st birthday party at Nana's & Papa's

It was a very quick visit, however one we didn't want to miss out on in order to see our cute granddaughters. Randi flew into Spokane WA. to see her family on Saturday with the girls for a three weeks visit, and 1st birthday celebration for Harlow. Though Tony just got out of the hospital, he seemed to feel up to the drive, so we ventured forward. We to got in on Saturday the 25th just in time to go to Randi's Aunt and Uncles for a big end of the summer party. There were over 135 people that attended, so they hardly even realized we crashed there party. In fact though they were surprised we were there, they surely made us feel very welcome.
Sunday we spent with Randi and her family and friends. There again we always feel so welcome, and it gave us time to watch, and play with the girls.
Harlow wasn't as receptive for her party, she really just wanted mommy. Brenna on the other hand had such a wonderful time with the many children that were there. I was able to catch her at one time to give her a hug and snap a picture. It was so much fun to watch the social butterfly.
By the end of the evening you could tell that Brenna had a wonderful full day.
Harlow on the other hand was just plain finished, and tired out.
Come Monday when we left to go back to Portland home, Randi discovered Harlow had a new tooth come in, which explains her usual happy face for a sad one.

We truly have been blessed to have such a wonderful family.
