A December 1st to Remember





So today has been a crazy day for our little fam. First...Sunday afternoon we got a call from my sister, Jessica, saying she is in the hospital because she is in labor. We immediately packed up the car and drove 99mph from Arizona to Utah. It took us 9 1/2 hours to get to the American Fork Hospital where she was delivering her baby and I literally missed the birth of her little girl by 20 seconds!!! But it was still so much fun being there right after the fact. Lucy Jade Zurcher was born at 12:35am weighing 7 lbs 4 oz and measuring 18 1/2 inches. She is just adorable and we are so glad that we were able to be there to meet her! As if the day hasn't been good enough already, about 10 hours later, Wyatt recieved an email from USC School of Dentistry with an offer of acceptance!!! We are so excited to have this opportunity to live in Southern California and to be closer to family while we are in dental school. We have not heard anything from the Arizona schools yet so we plan on attending USC unless the Mesa school contacts us. Then we will really have to make a tough decision between southern California and Arizona. December 1st will always be a day to remember for our family.

  15. What an awesome sis you are - how did you pack yourself and two kids up that fast is my question!! SOooo You're in Utah then????!!
    She's a beautiful baby girl, really she is! I can't wait for you to have girls....in a few years of course :)

    So I bought a gown off labor looks and its so not cute. haha I'll have to send it back and get a different one. I actually think I'm out of time. Maybe i'll just have to send this one back and call it good. But they never answer there phones.

    Let me guess: you drove 9 1/2 hours in a car and took this picture right when you got to the hospital looking that cute. YEP sounds like my friend Jenny!
