merry christmas

Our hearts are full of Christmas as we celebrate the arrival of Elyse Noel Hostetler. Our girl arrived on Sunday December 21st at 5:51pm. She was 7 pounds 6 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. She has the loveliest pink skin and we think she may have one dimple on her right cheek. Siblings are delighted and instantly older.

Life slows down and in lots of ways stops for us for the short-term. We covet your prayers for the moments and days ahead. The word/place we feel the Father has invited us to during this time is "savor". Pray for the moments when this is opposed and all of what we face seems to be set against this precious place/time He has for us.

Thank you for all of the precious words/thoughts/prayers you have sent our way as we welcomed her. We are loved and we know it.
