Blessed Baby, Blessed Life

We are so blessed! I can't tell you how many times I think this on any given day...but I think today I was so overwhelmed with gratitude for all the blessings in our life! First off, look at these two beautiful women...

they are beautiful inside and out and Mike and I are blessed with being able to call them Mom. Happy Mother's Day Moms...we love you!
Adding to the blessings...I get to be the Mama to a wonderful baby boy who has brought so much joy and happiness into our lives! The blessings continue as Mike and I acknowledge what caring and thoughtful families we have! And not only do we have so many wonderful friends, but there are so many people who have supported us through this amazing journey!
Today we celebrated Bradyn's baptism and what a day it was! Bradyn did a great job in church and kept both sets of Oombas and Oompas busy during the service. All in all he did really well during the baptism. Afterwards, Bradyn relished in all the attention that was lavished upon him from family and friends. We are so blessed!

A Week In Wisconsin

Bradyn, Mike and I boarded a plane on Tuesday with Oomba and Oompa Taresh. We landed safely and tear-free in Minnesota and drove to Mike's hometown in Eau Claire, Wisconsin to Oomba and Oompa Lee's. We made the voyage to Wisco so that Bradyn could get baptized in the church that Mike was baptized in. We are especially excited that it will happen on Mother's day with both sets of Grandparents and his soon-to-be Godparents Aunt Lora and Uncle Bob. Bradyn is beside himself with love, affection, and attention from both grandparents, Aunt, Uncle, and cousins! He has made himself right at home at Oomba and Oompa Lee's house! We've had a fun-packed week already visiting a cheese factory, an Eagle preserve, Oomba's work and Leinenkugels! More fun is in store for the remainder of the week...stay tuned!

Take Time to Stop and Smell the Roses

Sometimes we all just need to stop...

and smell the roses (or tulips).

Or the bushes!

And if you just can't get enough of them...just grab the things!

So precious!
