Special Announcement – Welcome Lochlan!


It is with great pleasure and excitement that we announce the arrival of our newest Costen Family member!  My husband Shawn and I welcomed our third son, Lochlan Clarke Keating, into the world on Wednesday, January 21, 2015.  Lochlan is a healthy baby boy, and weighed in at 8 pounds 11 ounces and was 20.5″ long.  He is a very content little man, spending his days eating, sleeping, and “talking”.

His older brothers Leland and Leighton are thrilled to have a baby brother and so far have been great little helpers in taking care of him.
