Samuel Boyce Rasmussen

Congrats! Last night Samuel Boyce Rasmussen was born. He was born at 11:15pm on Nov. 8, 2007. He weights 8lbs 1oz and is 20.5" long. Michelle did such a great job, it was like watching a professional. Casey also was great during the whole thing, he was a big help to Michelle. Jane didn't freak out or anything (infact I think she did better than everyone else). It was really amazing to watch. I thought I was going to freak out, but actually it was not that bad. So, everyone is healthy and strong and doing great! Congratulations to the Rasmussen Family! We are all so happy for you.

Summit Hand Therapy is OPEN!!

The clinic is finally open . . . kind of. I have about 98% of the supplies I need and most of the marketing materials. I have begun the marketing process with the doctors and hope to see patients soon. The above picture is the waiting room (Melissa did it all). Below is a picture of the building. I am excited and will make sure to let you all know how things are going.

Jenkins Family Update

I guess November is my month to blog...where have you all been?? Thanks for keeping things current Renee.

Here are some hightlights since August...

The Jenkins Reunion trip to Banff was amazing. It was the perfect vacation: great food, nice condos, cute towns to walk around, and incredibly scenic hikes in canyons and around
glacial lakes. Can't we work on something like that for Mom and Dad's. Maybe at Lake Como?

Disneyland was a blast!
The hightlight was definitely Zachy's debut as a Jedi in training...

or maybe spending the day with Steve Stewart. It was a bit like having Robin Williams around - completely unpredictable and very entertaining. The image of Steve with Zach on his shoulders running through the crowded Main Street of Disneyland to get to the Nemo ride will forever be etched in my mind. We love Uncle Stevie!

Gary and I spent a great weekend in Arizona for my 20-year reunion. I had no idea what to expect...but ended up having a really great time reconnecting with some great people. And Gary, of course, proved to be the perfect man to drag along to one of those things: Mr. Genial.

Halloween was perfect - even Dad would have liked it. All seven of us visited four of our neighbors where the kids were loaded with candy (we were the only ones to come by all night). Then we headed home, made popcorn, ate candy, and watched "The Haunted Mansion" with the Trentmans. Perfect - not much fuss, no expense, good times, and in bed by 9:30. (Santa, Witch Doctor, Snow White, Obi Won, Little Bee)

And finally, proof that she really is our girl:
lower half of face & forehead = Gary
upper half (okay, lips, eyes & nose) = Lisa
We love our Lulu!
