This week we were able to take the time to count our blessings. We feel so blessed to be in a home that we can share with our friends and family. This weekend was one of the busiest/craziest weekends so far. We felt blessed and are proud that Marcus was excited and choose to be baptized on July 24, 2010 a day he will never forget. Then today we were able to start Mylee's journey in the church with her blessing. Our crazy weekend started Wednesday night with my good friend/adopted sister Katie and her kids showed up. We were able to play hard for the next few days. Taking a total of 8 kids and a baby to the movies, splash park and Artic Circle. The kids all played hard and slept as little as they could. They did not want to miss a minute with their good friends. We feel so lucky to have had them come up as my siblings and Jim's did not come. Chris her husband joined us Thursday night. The weekend was topped off with the arrival of Grandma Moffat (Jim's mom) and Kiley my nieces daughter. Chris with Mylee. I think he needs another baby. The younger kids watching a movie why the adults played 'idiot' and the older kids played their games. Mylee waving hi as she wants her turn to play too. Marcus' big moment The family Mylee was not too happy. I don't think she understood just yet how much this day meant to her big brother. All dressed in white, ready to be baptized by his hero, his dad. Mylee's turn Family means so much What a wonderful day. Mylee was blessing was great, I could feel the spirit so much. I feel so lucky to have a husband who is worthy to bless and baptize our kids. We were sad to see our family leave this afternoon but look forward to seeing them all again soon. The shoes all were blessed in. I wonder just how many babies have worn these shoes. More than 20. Just to think it all started with Jim's dad.
