Weekend Recap

This weekend flew by. We left Kearney Saturday morning at about 8:30 a.m. to make the drive to Kansas City for my niece's baptism . It is about a 5 hour drive, so we loaded up the car with treats, movies, games, colors, etc. to make the drive as pleasant as possible. The kids were great, especially Ryan. He is so content to look at his Pokeman cards, color, and watch a movie. Alex was pretty good, but thank goodness for portable DVD players. :)

The kids were so excited to see their baby cousin Aubrey who they had not seen since Christmas. Not being biased, but she is absolutely beautiful and as sweet as can be!! Ryan wanted nothing more than to sit and hold her. It was so cute!

Sunday during the 11:30 mass was the baptism. My sister's church did such a nice job. They had us be a part of the entire Mass. We walked in with Father, he gave Aubrey a little introduction to the congregation. We also carried up the gifts for Communion, and then had the Baptism ceremony. Father did such a nice job of explaining every thing he was doing and its significance since my sister's husband's family, who was also there, is not Catholic. It was a very special ceremony and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it as her godparent.

Craig, Shannon, and Aubrey with my parents. Aren't my parents so cute! :)

Now I am just trying to get laundry caught up and shake this cold Alex and I have caught. Hopefully tonight I can sit down and catch up on everyone's blogs. It was only a few days, but I don't like missing out. :) Have a great week!

Biased or not, that baby is definitely cute. I'm so glad you were able to go and support your sister and be a part of a special event for your niece.

Wow, Aubrey is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Almost makes me wish we'd waited even longer to Baptize Donovan, as he'd have probably been very well behaved. (He was fabulous as it was, being baptized at a month old.) Everyone looks so beautiful!

it sounds like a great baptism! it's always so nice when the priest takes the time to make the visiting families feel welcome, and expecially to explain everything!

good luck with the laundry...

Jenny- We are amazed by how much Aubrey looks like my kids. Everyone was talking about that this weekend. The SPT is on the way, as soon as naps start. And yes, that's a pink tie. Styling, huh? :)

Carlo- The book is yours!
