This morning, Dave, Lisel and I were all laying around in bed, lazily checking our emails (hey, you can't take the slacker out of the parent...) when we saw that our good friend Mike Lavigne had sent us this:
Let's take a closer look,
SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 263
WHEREAS, The birth of a baby is one of the most treasured
events in the life of a couple; and
WHEREAS, December 27, 2008, will be a day long remembered
in the lives of Elizabeth McQueen and Dave Sanger, for on that day
their daughter Lisel Blossom Sanger McQueen was born; and
WHEREAS, The beautiful baby girl was born at 1:17 a.m.; she
weighed seven pounds two ounces and was 19 and one-half inches
WHEREAS, Lisel’s safe arrival is the fulfillment of her
parents’ dearest wish; Elizabeth and Dave are filled with joy
over this long-awaited infant, who has already found a permanent
place in their hearts; and
WHEREAS, It is indeed appropriate that the Texas Senate
welcome this new arrival as a treasured citizen of the Lone Star
State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 81st
Legislature, hereby extend congratulations to Elizabeth McQueen
and Dave Sanger on the birth of their precious child and best
wishes for the future to Lisel Blossom Sanger McQueen; and, be it
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution be prepared for
the family as a memento of this special day.
AAAAAPresident of the Senate
AAAAAI hereby certify that the
above Resolution was adopted by
the Senate on February 23, 2009.
Yes, our friend Mike had a Texas senate resolution passed congratulating us on the birth of our child.
Mike is a generally amazing guy. He rocks everything that interests him, whether it's politics or poker or public relations. He's a cook whose project has been working his way through the Les Halles cookbook. He's the only man I know who actually got sponsors for a house party (Lonestar beer and Bacardi anyone?) In short, he's awesome, and I'm lucky to know him and his wife Leigh.
In fact I am constantly amazed by the coolness, the creativeness and the generosity of our friends. Dave and I have a great village to raise our daughter in. Nothing feels cooler than that.
