Baby Henke #2

We’re expecting! Baby Henke #2 will be making his or her appearance sometime around February 28th, 2014. We are very excited to meet this sweet baby and welcome it to our family. I went to the doctor five weeks ago and found out. Actually, I had been feeling really tired and was taking naps almost […]

Happy Day
