Juliana Alice-Aline Throne
Born January 16 at 8:48
6 pounds, 18 inches
 Our sweet niece made a grand entrance last Thursday night in the elevator lobby of the OSU hospital. After five days in the NICU for a little help with her breathing she was allowed to come home yesterday. She is doing great! We got to meet her today and at least one of our boys was super excited. The other two were excited about their new light sabers!

Congratulations to Kelsey, Mike, big brother Walker and big sisters Grace and Liza!

Kids' Museum

 Even though I doubted my sanity in deciding to do a day trip the morning after coming home from Tennessee, we visited the Cincinnati Children's Museum on Monday. Our friends Lindsay, Carson and Bella Ramey joined us. It was a fun day with friends and I'm thankful for time to visit, play and learn together. I'm also thankful for well-behaved children, because they were on Monday and I know that's not always the case!

Meet Monty, Erik's cousin Kevin's ball python. Eww! I kept my distance but the boys were excited. And, NO! They will not be getting a pet snake anytime soon.

Christmas in Tennessee

 We are so thankful that we were able to get away and spend a few days in Tennessee with Yaya and 'Buelo after Christmas. We opened gifts, put together a puzzle, played games and Legos, did crafts, played outside, went to see Christmas lights at the Bristol Motor Speedway, read books, visited some of the other Allsops in Knoxville and enjoyed every minute together. Thank you Yaya and 'Buelo for hosting our craziness!
