Christmas letter 2009


Merry Christmas from the Lawrence’s

This has been a very exciting year for the Texas Lawrence's. Much of the year revolved around preparing for and the arrival of our little princess, Audrey Belle. Audrey’s middle name is Belle after a tradition from both sides of the family, my dad’s mom Elisabeth Belle, my mom, Patti Belle and me, Julia Belle.

Jeremy and I spent most of the year waiting on our house to be repaired from the damage that Hurricane IKE caused to our roof and extra bedroom. Once we had all four walls back again we began painting and decorating for the “BIG DAY”. Jeremy got very good at putting together furniture (who knew baby furniture could be so difficult). Around April we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel so our preparation became more intense. The “Big Day” finally arrived (after a long labor) and on June 20, 2009 at 3:05 a.m., Audrey arrived. She weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and was 19 ¾ inches long and had the chubbiest cheeks you have ever seen. Over the next several months we spent countless hours bonding and getting to know our little girl.

Audrey is now 6 months old and is growing like a weed. She is sitting up almost entirely by herself and eats lots of carrots, apples and bananas. She is such a sweet little girl and has impacted our lives so much in this short amount of time that it is hard to imagine our lives without her.

We close 2009 with excitement looking to the future to see what God has in store for our little family.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2010

Jeremy, Julia and Audrey Belle
