A Baptism and a Blessing

We made it to Mandy’s house this weekend. It was fun to see the house they are renting. It’s really nice. She has lots of space there. She was so nice to let us use her kids room’s and beds for us to sleep in. I felt sorta spoiled. That was so nice of their family.

The girls have grown up so much. Kali loves her little brother and is such a cute little helper. She was right there many times to help her momma with baby Isaac. It was so cute.

Lily has grown up so much too. She’s a fun loving girl. She has a special little spirit about her.

We got to see and hold little Isaac. Oh, he is such a cutie. Love him so much. He’s so little and just perfect.

Josh LOVE’s him!!  Almost at any moment you could find Josh by him or holding him. I think he’s going to make such a sweet dad one day. He was so cute with him.

We got there on Friday night. Jeff’s parents were there too. We had super yummy fish for dinner. I mention it just because I don’t want to forget and I have to try it. She sprinkled it with Blackened Redfish Magic by Chef Paul then she wrapped it in tin foil and cooked it on the barbecue.  It turned out so good, gonna have to do that.

Then the next morning we all got ready and were able to participate and be a part of 
Jacob’s baptism day. 

I felt grateful to be there and see him. I could really feel the spirit so strongly 
as his dad said a special prayer and baptized him. 

Jacob is growing up so much. I can feel him wanting to do what’s right. My boys love him so much. They were so excited to be part of his special day. We all were.

We also got to be part of Isaac’s blessing day. Two birds with one stone so to say. It was neat to be able to be there. It was a special day and I’m glad they live closer so we could be there.

Zac was excited too, he was just totally into his book.

The girls looked so pretty today and got ready so quickly. 
They were excited to be part of their brother’s special day.

So sweet.

Grandma and Grandpa showing the kids the special blessing blanket. Everyone’s name is embroidered around the outside edge. This blanket made each one of them feel pretty special.

The girls played the piano a couple times today. 

Josh finally got to hold Isaac. He was so sweet with him.
