Let's Hear it for the Boys!

Welcome to the world, Adam and Andrew!

Adam is the brand-spankin' new son of Jenny and Tim, weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds and 14 ounces.

Andrew is Adam's cousin, born on August 11 to Brian and Tara, at a slightly less imposing 6 pounds and 13 ounces. Both are healthy and happy!

How cool is that! Cousins born four days apart!

And I'd also like you to be aware that I happen to know the bravest little boy in the whole world. Our friend Nathan, the almost-four-year-old son of our friends Rachel and Scott was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. He's already had surgery to remove the tumor on his kidney, and he's already been through his first round of chemotherapy. The latest news is that he finally got to go home today and is chemo-free until after Labor Day. He and his family need a lot of prayers and good thoughts to come there way, so get thinkin' and prayin'! You can read more about this brave little guy here.

Congratulations to the new additions of your friends' families.

I will be praying for Nathan and his parents. I can't imagine the struggle they must be enduring when fighting such a battle. May God richly bless them with renewed health.

Yeah to the boys in the hood....but I'll tell ya from experience 4 day apart cousins can be fun but trouble in oh so many ways.

We'll be thinking of your friends as they go through this tough time.

The cool (scary) thing about Adam and Andrew is that they each have two-year-old brothers as well...

Talk about fun!!!!!!
