Annaliese Dedication

We dedicated sweet Annaliese at church this past Saturday. "Children are a heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is His reward," Psalms 127:3. "Every good and perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father," James 1:17. Thank you Lord, for your precious gifts!

Here are some more pictures from the event.

Without a Camera....Ugh!

Wow....I had no idea I was so addicted to my camera! I am now realizing that I use my camera more than my cell phone or microwave!
We had Annaliese dedicated at church this past Saturday night and pulled out the camera to take pictures of the event and the hard drive or something died. Annaliese looked so cute too! Thankfully, my stepdad had his camera and was gracious enough to take lots of pics for us. I should have those pictures by the end of the week and will get them posted once they are edited.
So, I've been researching cameras the past few days and still haven't made a decision. If you have a recommendation for me, I'd love to hear it! I'll probably get something new this weekend.

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day! (About 4 days late!) Bobby had to leave town for a week-long training in Birmingham, AL, and so it's been just me and the kids since Sunday afternoon. Much to my surprise, it hasn't been overwhelming or all that tiring. That being said, we definitely miss Bobby very much - especially Ethan. It's like his best friend has been away. We are ready for Bobby to come back home tomorrow. :-)

Bobby is such a wonderful father and we had good time celebrating him before he left. We went to church on Sunday morning and met up with Mom, Dale, Kyle & Kimmy at Cheesecake Factory for brunch before Bobby had to go to the airport. It was a fun time! Later that night, Dad, Laura & Kimmy came over for fajitas to celebrate Dad on Father's Day. It, too, was a fun night. However, I don't have any pictures to show for that night....between making dinner and keeping up with the kids without Bobby, I forgot to get pictures from our night together.

Here are some pictures I did remember to take that day!

Waterpark Fun!

Grandpa & Grandma were off work this week and invited us to the waterpark by their house for some water fun. Ethan had an absolute blast!

On another note, Ethan said another something that was so funny to me. I had given Ethan a piece of gum to chew and he is usually very good to tell me when he is finished so we can throw it away. This time, however, he swallowed the gum. He told me, "Sorry, Mommy, I swallowed my gum. Sorry! Game over!" I have no idea where he got that!

Gigi with her grandkids at Kyle's graduation dinner. I don't know why I didn't get any pictures of Kyle since it was his special night....I get distracted easily these days....CONGRATULATIONS, Kyle! :-)

2 Months Old!

It's hard to believe two months have come and gone, but our sweet Annaliese is already two months old! (Well, actually she is two months and a few days.....Mommy is behind on her blog posting!)

She is now 9 lbs. 4 oz. and 22 inches long. To compare, Ethan was already 11 lbs. 6 oz. and 23 inches long at two months. I guess that is just the difference between boys & girls!
She is awake and alert for longer periods and smiling and cooing a lot!

Happy 60th Anniversary!

Today is my grandparent's (Joe & Shirley Sondeno) 60th anniversary! Congratulations!

I am so thankful to have them in our lives and for the godly heritage they have given our family.

We wish we could be there in CA to celebrate with you! Love you lots!
