She was terrified the moment we got close, and this was the best shot we could get as she frantically reached for Daddy to save her! | We spent New Years in Henderson with the Johnsons and Preeces. Katelyn got to see the Belagio Fountains show and the Hoover Dam.

But she soon adjusted and loves being the big sis!
