Welcome, Ruth!

The baby has landed!

November 17th FINALLY arrived, and a whole slew of us trekked out to meet the newest member of the family.

12 adults and only 1 brought a camera!

Here are the best of the shots.

There'll be time for more intimate portraits later.

Though in her dad's arms, "Roo" is interested her in Grandpa Adams...

And the proud & excited grandmas!

The shirt says "Hi, I'm new here."

Meeting Grandpa Benting for the first time, and her godfather, John, too:

Very interested in the balloon.

With her new mom & dad!

Meeting cousin Serena for the first time, Ruth was fascinated! Serena was tickled to be the "big girl" for a change.

No more airports! Leaving PDX.

Not going home yet. First, the requisite stop at Elmer's.

Got a bit bored waiting for everyone to get there and get our breakfast order placed...

OK, her Aunt Margaret started it! Serena demonstrating her architectural prowess.

Ruth: "Hey, waiter! Down here!"

Breakfast in America

Who's the cutest thing? Why, that'd be YOU!

Congratulations to the entire family, and another warm welcome for Ruth.

She is so adorable! Her new parents must just be over the moon.

Delia's middle name is Ruth so I heartily approve of their choice. :)
