A New Grandson

Let me introduce to you our newest addition to the family, grandchild number 5…. Noah Steven Hertzler.


With the marriage of Keith and Alivia on April 5, 2013, we also were blessed to welcome a new grandson,  Noah, Alivia’s son.

This little fella is winning our hearts.  His eyes sparkle with delight when he sees us and he calls us “grandpa and grandma Hertzler” always adding the Hertzler.  He chatters nonstop about the cows, tractors, trucks, or whatever else is on his mind.  He is thriving on life in the country and all the equipment “toys” of  his new daddy.

When Keith arrived at Alivia’s home for their first date, Noah came running to the door and squealed “daddy”, totally embarrassing his mom!!!  Noah’s daddy had left his life when he was 6-months old and he has never known a father’s love or ever called anyone daddy.  Keith and Noah are forming a special father-son bond.

Welcome, Noah, we love you and are so glad you are a part of our family.


Note: Noah is not on the wedding pictures. He was suppose to be at the wedding-we picked him up from preschool and took him along.  He was so proud of the little tux he was to wear but he decided to “act up” and it soon became obvious it was better for him to be taken home by his baby sitter.  It was too overwhelming and confusing for him.  He became very insecure and wanted his mommy.
