20031229-01.jpg (35148 bytes) We decided to not send Christmas cards this year. Well, at least not on time. We figured it best to wait until our new arrival was present first, take a picture with him (or her - we didn't know yet), and then send combination Christmas/Birth Announcement cards. We took this photo on the afternoon of the 28th, and it will be used on our Christmas cards this year.

20031229-03.jpg (35148 bytes) OK, here's the picture you really came here to see: A great close-up of little Mark. No further comment required. However, please compare this photo with this picture of Jimmy as a baby. While John and Genny have identical faces, Mark is definitely a ringer for Jimmy.
