A baptism, two birthdays, and a baby blessing!

Last weekend was a bit chaotic in our home!
William turned 8 the end of last month, and in our church that is when children are given the opportunity to be baptized. Will was so excited for this great day. It was also time to bless Audrey and we decided to have both events the same weekend so relatives coming from out of town wouldn't need to come down two weekends in a row. It was only after scheduling everything that I realized Will's baptism day was also Nate and Drews sixth birthday! It was a fabulous weekend though, spent completely together as an extended family.

I can't believe my baby twins are SIX years old! They start Kindergarten the end of this month. Weird!

Will and his display. He chose what he wanted to bring to show about himself and I think the choices are so cute!

That is alot going on at once... but that is usually the way it happens. All or None.

You have a sweet beautiful family.
Audrey is adorable in the gorgeous blessing dress.

I am glad everything went well. We are getting ready for my daughters baptism. I am very excited! I love you family pictures. Such a cute and happy family.

Holy cow, that's a lot of stuff crammed into one weekend! I guess when you have 6 kids, it's inevitable that things will fall on the same days.
I also can't believe the 2 sets of baby twins in our midst are 6-yr-olds. That really is weird.

You guys look so cute! I'm glad it all went well.
