It's been a full week. Everyone's doing well. Sam is eating better and looking cuter and cuter every day. The girls are just eating this up. Sheryl's folks left Friday morning. The girls were very sad to see them go. However, Sheryl's brother, Chuck, and his family came last night so they've had plenty of activity to keep them occupied.

I stayed home with Sam this morning while Sheryl went to church with the family. I think people were floored to see her. She looks great. it's good for her to get out and combat cabin fever. And it was great to have the morning with BST (Baby Sam Thomas).

Here are some pictures of last week. This first one is of him coming home from the hospital and then the girls mobbing him!

Brandon and Sheryl, Congratulations to you and the girls from Abilene, TX!

I need to know though, is it just MY computer that won't let me see this latest batch of pics?

Blessings!

Congrats! New babys are always so exciting.

I can't see the pictures either. The ones that I have seen are wonderful. Sam is such a cute baby!

Glad you had that special dad time with Sam. Enjoy them now while you can.

The original links read ottercreek.info/... instead of ottercreek.org/...
(I know, I know - but what can I say I've grown up with computers.)

Here is where I found the images:

Brandon-
If Sam didn't look so much like the rest of y'all, I'd think you'd just fooled us all and adopted. Sheryl looked AMAZING this morning!

Congratulations on all of your blessings, and I'm looking forward to seeing the 5 of you back at the Creek!

I can't believe I'm saying this, but seeing the girls with Sam makes me wonder, "Should we have another baby???!!!" KatieAnne has been asking to see the pictures over and over again. Every baby we see while we are out, she asks if that's Sam. Yesterday she popped out with, "Mommy, I want to have a baby brother, too!" I was SURE we were done... but now I'm not! We even just sold ALL of our baby stuff!! Seeing your precious Party of Five just proves that God is sooo good! Love you, KB

(Thanks, Jen, for the picture re-direct!)

It's wonderful to see these pictures. He's just GORGEOUS!! I love them all, but especially the one with the girls. Sam is just not going to get a moments' peace with all that sisterly love and affection. They are going to be his 'master and commander', eh???
Too CUTE!!

Am glad to hear you are all doing well, and Sheryl is doing great. That's a neat thing, that you stayed home with Sam and let Mom go out for some fresh air. God bless you all, and that precious little bundle!

Love ya!

Jen--you rock! Thanks. I don't know why it did that. All my other pic posts have the Ottercreek.info thing too, but for some reason it didn't work this time. I went back though and changed it based on your advice and it worked like a charm. YOU DA woMAN!

Congratulations!!! Baby Sam is one good lookin' kid and he belongs to a good lookin' family! What a blessig! Stacia and I are so happy for you guys and we look forward to the day when we can meet Sam in person.

By the way,if my math is correct, I think Sam and our Jonathan born May 24 could be freshman at ACU together in the fall of 2023. Good grief!

Grace & Peace,
Adam, Stacia, Jenna, & Jonathan

It was truly a surprise to see Sheryl at church but truly a blessing that she has you so trained that she can get out and have you with the kids. Haha, jk. Grateful that things are going so well and that all of you are so very happy and blessed. Take care and stay strong. I'm gonna be away from the OC til the first part of July with Impact and then OC Church camp right after that. Take care bro and hold down the fort.
God bless, Zac

BTW, I love that pic of Miz Judy with that sweet little bundle ... it must be like déjà vu for her!

Karen-
So cool to know you're out there! Please come by when you're in nashville. YES--you should join the three kid rodeo, as Chris Doggett puts it.

Brandon,
Great pictures. Thanks for sharing them. It is so fun to see how God changes our lives through the years. Not that we're old or anything like that... but very cool to be given our own children to increase His love in the world and in our hearts. Have a great week.
Becky and Kevin

BST,

What a handsome boy you have! I am so thankful God has blessed the Thomas family with another new life! Enjoy this new season, as you know, it passes within the blink of an eye. Love and blessings.

Congrats on your new son. Summer and I just had number 3 in January. Three children get interesting. You go from man to man defense to a zone defense when it comes to parenting. Enjoy the fun times.

God's Blessings on your family Brandon! You have a handsome young man there and some sweet sisters to take care of him! I am amazed at how a newborn brings people together and especially the strong desire it brings out in little girls to be a mother to that child. Our little one, Jordan Elise, is like a magnet for people in general but especially little girls. It is truly a great blessing from God! Enjoy and God Bless-Kirk
