ANDREW'S BAPTISM

BOY! OH BOY! THESE BOYS ARE HANDSOME. Today was the big day. Andrew our youngest is baptized today. Andrew was so excited and kinda nervous at the same time. He was all full of smiles. After the confirmation Andrew said he felt all warm and good inside. He has always been a polite kid but seemed to be more so coming home wanting to get all the doors for me.

It feels like yesterday I gave birth to him. He should not be old enough to get baptized. We take so much for granted until little moments like these wake us up and realize that we have it all. I am thankful to be a mother to my daughters and son. And a wife to my husband.

I had to take a class for 4 weeks in October of this past year, mandatory for my job and it was pretty intense. The homework was awful and the tests on Mondays made me sick. I was really grouchy but, my daughters pitched in and did a lot of the cooking and Andrew helped with keeping the house cleaned. I was kinda a reclouse during this time. I could never go back to school and get my RN, my kids need me too much and I was really grouchy. I am so grateful to have raised such great kids. Well I kinda got off the subject here. Just like to ramble.


THE FAMILY....

Grandma and Grandpa Edwards came and Great Grandpa has not been doing well his cancer has made him homebound. We were blessed that he was well enough to come and stand in as a wittness. We LOVE you Grandma and Pa's.

Andrew and his best friend Josh. Josh is 5 days older than Andrew. They pretty much do everything together and like the same girls...

This is my Great Aunt Ruth and her daughter Kathy. We LOVE you...

What a cute kid Andrew is! Tell him congratulations for us. I wish we could have come but we had several things going on with the kids that morning. I'm glad you had a good day with him.
