Colton's Baptism Weekend

The kids were so excited that Granna and Pa were coming in to see us they couldn't settle down to take a nap...COLTON didn't have trouble...
Pa sure loves those babies...
Granna and Kaitlyn reading the book that Granna bought her. She loves it. It is really cool. It is made of felt so that she can change the story.
Mommy was trying really hard to get a sweet picture of all the kids for the birth announcement. Can you say.....that is really hard...
I love these kids....
We had a great weekend. And what a weekend it was......

Saturday morning....it started out with Kaitlyn's cheerleading at the scrimmage.

You can hear her.. I wonder where she got that.

SHE DID GREAT.


Then we all traveled to Groom for Colton's Baptism.

Toby's sister Debbie, husband Mack "Skinner" and their daughter Allison

along with Granna and Pa all packed into the cars to head to the church.

The baptism went GREAT...

THANK GOODNESS FOR PACIFIERS...

THANKS TO MOM and DAD (Gramz and Grandad) for cooking, planning, and cleaning up for our big party after the baptism. We had about 50 people that came to eat and meet Colton for the first time. We love getting together. There is nothing better than family and good friends.

Lance is Colton's Godfather,

Chris is Kaitlyn's Godfather.

Again aren't those boys too cute...they are looking for a good woman...any takers?
