Caroline's Blessing Weekend

Yes, we made a weekend of it, and it was wonderful. . My grandparents came in on Friday, and came over with Dad to see the kids.

On Saturday we met David and Leda for lunch and then went back to Dad's house to watch the Carolina football game that the officials tried their hardest to make us lose.

Moving on...

Mom came up on Sunday morning to spend some time with the kids before we left for church for the blessing. So much of our family was there and it meant so much to us. Brittany and Cade and their kids, Jenifer and Colby, Christal and Chris, David and Leda, Mike and Dalene, Mom, Papa and Grandma, and Dad. Poor Aunt Wendi brought Claire and Cole but couldn't find the church. How blessed we are to have such supportive family who we love so much.

I know she's crying, but that is that the cutest face you've ever seen?!

After the blessing we went to Mike and Dalene's where we had a wonderful meal. I felt like it was Thanksgiving! Everyone was there, and once again I was overwhelmed at the outpouring of love that was shown to us.

Papa, Grandma and Dad came over again on Monday to see us one last time before they left. We went to lunch and to the park, got an ice cream cone and then met up later with David and Leda. It was so nice to see Papa and Grandma.

Thank you to everyone for making this past weekend so special and so memorable. We are so lucky and feel so blessed to have you all in our lives. We love you!!!
