One crazy family that is on a spiritual journey has a lot of love for each other.


Kikis Birthday was January 26th.  She turned eight.  In our church that means she's old enough to be baptized.  It has been a long awaited event and we are so excited for her.   Grandma and Grandpa came for the big day.  She decided to wear my baptism dress and Dad baptized her.  Others who came were the Anderson's, the Dean's, the Altomon's.  It was wonderful considering she had the flu.  She threw up right before we left but she toughed it out and did it anyway.  Her father and I couldn't have been prouder.  Grandma and Grandpa got her a set of scriptures, Mom and Dad got her a CTR ring, Kasey Bassatt took the photos.
Happy 1st Birthday

He got a quiet book, keys, a big bouncie truck, and a walker, for his birthday.  He got German chocolate cake and loved putting his pudgy little fingers into it.  His brothers and sister helped him blow out the candles.  He has only one tooth on the bottom.  He loves doing high fives and waving, too!  We love you our sweet little boy.  We are so happy you are in our lives.

Friends Forever

The other day Do-do kept talking about how his friend wanted something to eat and that his friend wanted a valentines card and that his friend doesn't like milk but he loves root beer.  So I asked him about his friend and he said that his friends name is Cheerio and he lives at far far away mountains.  It reminded me about Kiki's imaginary friend.  It was a dog named Allygog.  For about two months I had to put food out for the dog at every meal.  The dog had to have her seat belt on any time we were in the car, too!  The funniest thing was that you could hear Kiki play with her friend alone in her room all the time.  She would even sing the dog to sleep at night!
