Oh Blessed Day!

We blessed Marley last Sunday and it was wonderful! All the family was here except for Ryan's sister Lindsay and her husband, Casey, and my brother Eric and Andrea. We missed them. Other than that it went great. Marley didn't cry at all, and Ryan gave her a beautiful blessing. I very proud moment for a tired mother. :) We were close to getting a cute family picture, but not quite. We waited a little too long and Cash was at the end of his rope. He loves his little sister so much! He'll give her far more kisses than I think is healthy (considering they're both kind of sick right now), but refuses to give Ryan and I kisses. Hopefully he'll grow out of it a little bit. I'll post some cute pictures for you all.

Can it get any bigger?
This one reminds me of Cash

This might be as close as we get.
That's one happy dad. Cash just started enjoying cartoons in the a.m.
He lives here.
Sweet kisses!

Beautiful McCall

We spent the last week up at a cabin on the lake in McCall with the Johnson family for a little reunion. I have a lot of pictures on our video camera that I haven't taken the time to figure out how to download yet. So, you get the few that were on our camera. It was so fun to relax and enjoy our beautiful surroundings in the mountains. The air was so clean and the lake was so dang cold. It was a lot of fun though! The first day Cash walked right into the water in all his clothes... I guess the cold didn't affect him. Cash pet a horse, saw a fox, deer and frog. We also ate some wild thimble berries, blueberries, and huckleberries. It was a little challenging with Marley and her bewitching hour, but we made it through. It was a much needed and wonderful break. Thank you everyone for your hard work in making it happen!

Marley's favorite place.

Our crew, plus a few neighbor kids.

Cash's favorite spot!

I can't believe we have two...

Cash was thoroughly worn out by the time we made our trip home.
