Sis' Baptism Day

Sis and Jon - I've got to do something about that tie

What a wonderful day we had on Sis' baptism day. There were a few little hiccups, but nothing major. Every baptismal day has to have a story to tell later. Sis got hers too. (Ask me later and I'll tell you all about it.) Jon was great, I was uncharacteristically calm and Sis was amazing.

(Ok, so due to the little hiccup, we never got an "official" pre-baptism picture. I had them pose for one at home a few days later, hence the red cami Sis is wearing. Pretty funny actually. Jon is a good sport to do this for his mom and I.)

The fam

The most beautiful women I know.

It was such a blessing to have so many of our family there from so far away. I miss them all so much.

Cousin Day @ the Zoo

We love the zoo. It's our little hangout. We had a great time sharing it with our cousins.

Not too sure about the carousel

I love this little person

Mads doing what she does best - tormenting Max

I love that we get to spend so much time with M&M. Its almost as though they are siblings not cousins. Lou is done having kids. I am done. E&E get to have the little brother and sister they never had and M&M get the same. Its a wonderful arrangement and I don't have to change diapers.

Lego Store

When Mom and Lou came to town we did a little shopping...

Max and E - a joyful and monumental occasion

I have to say I think this made E"s year. His first visit, but certainly not the last. Thanks Mom!

100% Stone Ground Wheat

Can you smell it?

I did it. I made a loaf of whole wheat bread that was perfect. I used only whole wheat flour and steel cut oats. It was delicious and filled me with such satisfaction. I'll definitely be making this one again.
