Jack L Hord was born at 12:10 AM on November 29, 2008. He weighed in at 9.3 pounds and is 20.5 inches long. His parents are exhausted but certainly so happy. All are doing well and excited about the new addition to the family.
If I could, I would like to ask my friends to please keep my brother in their daily thoughts and prayers. He is currently in the hospital in CCU and trying really hard to get well. It is a daily fight for him. Doreen his wife needs all our prayers also as she is fighting to be strong for him and for her children Sam & Bailey. She is an amazing lady and I know that she loves and cares for my brother so much and this is such a tough time for their family right now. I also know that God is watching over Rob and his family and that gives them peace and comfort to be able to stay strong and get through this.
The large pumpkins we discovered were real! If you get a chance to get to see the display before they change out the decor for Christmas you won't regret it. The children were fascinated by all the interactive characters and the beautiful decor.
We had fun playing the slots and sightseeing in Vegas. The Bellagio is such a beautiful hotel and I couldn't wait to see what theme they had chosen to decorate the Conservatory. I was not disappointed!
Ray and I wanted to go see our friends Janet & Chuck in Henderson, Nevada so we hit the road and also hit the outlets at State Line. I think Ray may of regretted it! Coach had a fabulous sale and of course we couldn't resist picking up a few Christmas presents. We stayed at South Point which is outside of the strip and close to Henderson. Saturday night we went to dinner to celebrate Janet and Carol's November birthdays. Dinner was delicious and then we went to The Palazzo to see "Jersey Boys". The show was fabulous - it was amazing all the songs that were written by Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. Ray knew every word of every song! We had a great time and we enjoyed the evening with Janet & Chuck!
Ray had mentioned that this restaurant may be a great spot for my Birthday! So we made reservations and boy was he so right. We had much fun celebrating with the PP's and Becca and Matthew. I brought a couple of bottles of wine and found one that was delicious! Matt's mom Barb gave it to us for Christmas, it was a 2004 Rombauer Merlot. Smooth as velvet. Highly recommended if you are into Merlots. Thanks Barb!
