Welcome to the World...

...baby Mason Royce!

Our sweet new son Mason was born on Wednesday, November 14. He was about 6lbs, 6oz, and was born in Utah at 3:23 Mountain Time. He is sweet, sleepy, and has a head full of soft black hair. We rejoice in the gift God has given us in sweet Mason!

Mason's name is special. His first name, obviously, means bricklayer. We love it because of Nehemiah, the man God used to rebuild His city. Mason will be a Repairer of broken walls, and a Restorer of streets with dwellings (Is 58:12). We also love his name because his birth mom loves it. She helped choose it, which makes it very special. Royce, his middle name, is Jeremy's middle name, his dad's middle name, and his grandfather's middle name. It means "son of a king," or, as we like it, "son of the King."

Thank You, Jesus, for this gift.
