Ninteen years of New Years Baby

Nineteen years ago on New Years Eve, I went into labor with my second son Tanner.  He wasn't expected to arrive for another two weeks, so the news that I would be staying in the hospital to have a baby that night was a pleasant surprise (as I was two weeks over and had to be induced with my first son).  It quickly turned to more of a "PARTAY" than a labor/delivery type of event.  All the doctors, nurses and family   cheering us on and scheming of how to have the first new years baby of 1994.  He did arrive four seconds after midnight and was the first baby born in Utah County that year.  It was a joyful day and I have sweet memories of bringing Tanner into this world.  He really was the sweetest baby a Mother could ask for.

Tanner's 3rd birthday.  Joshua is holding back with all his might not to blow them out for Tanner.  If you know Josh, you know how funny this is!
