The Baptism

We were so lucky to have lots of family with us! Adriel had both sets of grandparents come to her baptism. Grandma Holmes gave a beautiful talk on the Holy Ghost and Grandmama Dickson led the singing--including "I am a Child of God" by all the siblings of the three children who got baptized. Tyler's sister (Aunt Danna) was able to come, my sister Mackenzie and her husband Beau as well as my aunt Mel, Shawney, Max, and Marci and my uncle Mark. She was also supported by Bro & Sis Bayouth and many ward members who took time out of a busy day to attend the baptism. Adriel and her second grade teacher, Miss Navarrete. Adriel and her friend, Allison Adriel and Lauren & Olivia--their mom made this amazing cake. Apparently you can learn anything by watching youtube videos, like doing a cool braid! Sharon (Tyler's mom) flew in town just in time to get all the food ready for the luncheon after the baptism. She spent most of Friday in the kitchen! So proud of this big girl!!

Odyssey of the Mind and Trains!

One Saturday Adriel, Truman and I went to see her Odyssey of the Mind team compete. They have been working since October to prepare. Adriel was the only girl on her team with five boys, which she loved. It was fun to see her confidence grow and step up to be a leader--although she still doesn't understand the whys or hows of trading Pokemon cards. Apparently the boys are really into that. She was the "ice cream princess" and was excited about being able to faint twice as part of the skit. The twins had a birthday party that day, and Tyler and Nelson were home working at installing the last window so we took our time coming home. Truman was so excited to play on this train in downtown Manassas.

St Patrick's Day

Hopefully our last snow post of the season! (Although yesterday was a lovely rain/sleet/snow mix ALL DAY.) We went to a good sledding hill since there was no school. These girls love sledding!! This boy, not so much. He's just conquering the slides at the park and I think the speed was a little too much for him. So he stuck to the bench to eat snow. And work on some snot slides. Cute Olivia! And as long as there are snacks, Truman loves sledding.
