Molly's friend, Owen, had his birthday party at Pump It Up. Here's the birthday boy having some fun.
Owen and Ethan enjoyed wrestling amongst the balls.
Molly's favorite part was this inflatable mountain.
You had to run up the mountain with this velcro tag and see how high you could stick the tag on before sliding back down.
Ethan joined Molly in the fun.
After all the bouncing and running, everyone sang to Owen as he sat in his giant birthday chair.
Molly got a bunch of stickers as party favors, and they were perfect for Aunt Caroline's face!
The celebration continued with lunch at Grams and Pop's house. While waiting for lunch, Molly showed Grampa her iPad skills.
Grams made a great lunch, but this trifle was what many of us were really looking forward to!
Leah played peakaboo with everyone.
Leah now loves to say (with force) "boh." It's said with a deeper voice and lasts a few seconds. It's quite hilarious. You can see a video of it here.
The main event, Leah's baptism, arrived Sunday morning.
Molly assisted in pouring the water.
Leah did great! No tears, and she even gave some good smiles and clapped for everyone.
Grampa and G'Mom finished the baptism with some bell playing.
We were grateful that so much of our family could be with us for this special day.
Mom and baby.
A close up of the pretty girl!
Leah with Grams, the dress maker. The dress was made for Aunt Caroline's baptism.
And if you missed it, you can watch the video of Leah's baptism here.
Grampa, G'Mom, Aunt 'Chelle, Uncle J, Emmie, and Grammy all flew in for Leah's baptism. Molly and Leah were quick to get Grampa to read them a book.
Emmie tried to give Leah a kiss, but Leah wasn't a big fan of that idea.
Leah had a nice conversation with Grammy.
And then had a lot to say about her conversation with Grammy.
Molly and G'Mom created a masterpiece.
And all the girls had storytime with Uncle J.
Cousins are the best!
Stay tuned for more of our weekend adventures!
Molly is finally old enough to participate in Vacation Bible School. This year the kids went on an adventure on the high seas. She was so excited every morning when I told her we were going to Bible school again. I taught Molly's preschool class and we both had a great week learning that God's word is true, comforting, surprising, life-changing and for everyone! She loved singing and dancing to all of the songs and listened to the CD so much that I went to bed and woke up singing them! We even had an evening of singing with Uncle J, who led these songs for the kids at his church.
Molly's shirt was way too big for her, so I made a few tweaks using this tutorial and now she can finally wear her Bible school shirt!
