Family


It seems everyday our family grows. Not just my kids but my bigger family. I married Jay & my family doubled. But we have births & marriages as the family continues to grow. Yesterday we blessed Charlotte & we had the most family I've ever had at a blessing. It was just so wonderful. We had my parents, my sister Suzanne & her family, and Mike & his fiancee Allison. We took up an entire row - it was impressive. Jay's parents were there, his sister Jill & her family, his sister Heather & her kids, and then we had Jay's sister-in-law in town from Okinawa. Ok Rachel was here to take her daughter Rebekah to college but they stayed for the blessing. It was just so absolutely wonderful.

Charlotte did so wonderful being passed around from person to person and rarely sitting in my arms. She could hear my voice but couldn't find me. It was just a wonderful day.
Charlotte fast asleep for a little while after church.

Dad and I had a wonderful time. Charlotte is beautiful and so good. We are so blessed to have her. Next trip, plan on dad a day early and leaving a day early. Thanks for everything.

Sally, everyone looks so good. Charlotte is an absolute angel. I wish we could have been there too. I'll be up next month to check out that sweetie pie!

I didn't leave a day early, just an evening early and had a quiet drive home. We had a great weekend with all of the families and everyone had fun. Even Charlotte.
