"He took the children in his arms put his hands on them and blessed them." Mark 10:16

This past weekend was probably one of the happiest weekends of my life.  Benny was baptized on Feb. 19 at our church.  Benny's great uncle from Texas; his aunt, uncle, and cousin from Michigan; his aunt and uncle (and godparents) from Missouri; and aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents from central Ohio all came to share in our joyful weekend.  It is my prayer that Benny will always love and serve the Lord.  He certainly has a wonderful family who prays for him and will nurture him in his faith.  For this I am so thankful!
Uncle Paul came from Texas.

Aunt Katie, my godmother, came from Missouri.

Uncle Eric (and godfather) came from Missouri too.

Granny Lindy and the cousins made it.

Who doesn't love a good snuggle with Grandpa Stevie?

Granny Lindy made me this beautiful cake for the party.

Happy Valentine's Day!

My Valentines caught snoozing together...

This year I have two valentines.  I made them a pink heart cake to tell them I love them.  Kevin loves him some pink cake!

My culinary masterpiece!

Back in Action!

Yesterday I resumed playing the organ for church after my maternity leave.  It was good to be back!  Daddy managed to bring Benny to the second service.  Even got him dressed in his handsome little blue sweater!

Happy Birthday Nana!

Today is a special day.  It is Benny's great-grandmother's birthday!  Benny wanted to make sure she knew he misses her and loves her very much!

A Lovely Gift

This week Benny received a SUPER CUTE homemade quilt from our friends Ruth and David.  Note animal faces and colors which match the nursery perfectly!
