When the Saints go Marching In....

video



I was watching Colton and Carter and had them laying next to each other and this is what I saw... So of course I had to record it. For those of you who don't know... Carter is John(Shawn's twin brother) and Cheryl's son who is only 6 weeks younger than Colton. They had me cracking up! You'll also have to forgive my crummy singing... I was trying not to laugh while filming this.

Enjoy the cuteness!!!

Hands.



I am blessed. I am the oldest of four children and was the first grandchild on both sides of my family. I am also the first great-grandchild on both sides of the family. I was fortunate to have Colton while two of my great-grandparents are alive. My Nana(Wanetta) is still living at the age of 95 and while I was in Florida we took the opportunity to take a Five Generation picture of our hands. From the top left going counter clockwise is my Nana(95), Grandmother(63), Mom(44), Me(24), and Colton(3 mo). 
It's amazing to think what hands do and between the 5 of us what things have been accomplished and what will be accomplished.

BOP-tees-mm (Baptism)



Nick got Baptized on November 1st. I still can't believe he has turned eight years old. My Nick. Shawn was able to baptize him and the normally 6 hr trip that turned into 11 hrs due to a crying baby was totally worth it to watch that experience. I was able to give the talk on the Holy ghost and it was wonderful to be able to come down to FL and do that. Shawn doesn't get much time off with work so we got very lucky to get his days changed so we could be in FL for at least 4 days.  While we were in Jax we got to see lots of friends, Charlotte, The Moody's, The Trunk's, and lots of my family. We went to Nick's little birthday party and he had a blast. It was nice to be with so many people we love.

Grandpa and Grandson:)
We can't wait to go back when we can go to the beach:)
