TODAY - Tanner's Christening

Piper was not into the pictures today in case its not obvious from all of the pictures. She was more interested in where wa wa was and where her blanky was - two items that are never far from her.

I have missed so much in my blogging lately. I wish I could say that I have been doing something outstanding to keep me occupied, but I have just been a lazy blogger. I miss checking up on everyone and I miss showcasing the kiddos. Today was Tanner's Christening and I completely forgot to take any pictures except for in the parking lot. The kids were not thrilled about having their photos taken, but at least I got 4.
We have some VERY exciting things coming up. There are big changes going on right now with jobs, family, priorities, etc. and I am excited to see how things turn out.

Going Solo to Faith

Mike was working the other weekend, so I decided to be brave and take the kids to church solo. My neighbor was going to come, but she stood us up. (Kim, enter guilt trip here). We actually had a lovely time and I really like this little church. The people there are so nice and have done so much for our family. We decided that we are going to join so we are very excited about having the kids baptized and getting more involved in this little small community church. Now, onto what I am always talking about.....AREN'T MY KIDS RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS?

Playdate at PTC Park

We met Chan and Lana at the park a couple of weekends ago and it was so much fun. The kids seemed to get along great together, but it was HOT HOT HOT. Ava and Harrison loved haming it up for the camera. We need to schedule playdates more often!

Harrison's Mission

(Please disregard the 1000 bags of chips behind Harrison's head)

After saying goodbye to Mr. Johnson, we waited until we knew they were asleep and went to hang signs and yellow ribbons in their yard and ours. Harrison dressed himself for the mission.

Gotta love the picture that Harrison drew of Ava to hang outside. Notice the mean mouth :)

Mr. Johnson's Last Night

Our neighbor received a last minute deployment so we did not have time to plan a real get together. This was our last night together when we were saying goodbye. Do you notice who thinks that they are part of the Johnson family? The funny thing is that she looks perfect in the family pictures. I keep trying to use them to convince them to adopt a little cutie!

Harrison needed to get into the action too. You cannot really see them in the picture, but Mr. Johnson had dog tags made for Harrison and Ava with his information on it. I didn't realize until he had left --- uugggh, tear jerker!
