May 16th & 17th

Molly was dedicated at our church this last Sunday. It was a special day. She was dedicated along with the adorable Amelia and Wes, children of friends of ours. I remember Sean being dedicated and how emotional it was - this did not change one bit. Unfortunately I did not get any pictures of the actual dedication (if anyone who attended did, I would love any you might have). I did get a couple from that morning.

Molly Elizabeth:
Molly - a form a Mary. Both our mother's names are Mary, and Ryan's Great-grandmothers name was Molly.
Elizabeth - meaning "consecrated to God". Many women in my family have this as a middle name, myself included. It is also the first name of my Grandmother, Molly's Great-grandmother who turned 90 years old the same day our Molly was dedicated.

Today is May 17th - Norway's Independence Day. There is a small parade in town that my brother, my dad, and I took the kids to. Sean had a blast sitting with the big kids, and seeing all the drums.
Sean had his first lollipop about 2 weeks ago and it was hilarious watching him try to eat it. Today at the parade a lollipop landed at his feet and he was transfixed . . . he just kept staring. What an awesome boy!
Hope you had a great day!

catching up

It has been a while since I posted. Work has been so crazy lately, It feels like every time I sit down at the computer it is for work and blogging has been pushed aside. So here is what we have been up to lately:

Sean turned 3!!! He is such a big boy, and brings us so much joy, laughter, and love. I am continually amazed at him and his growing mind. What a blessing he is to us.

We took a long weekend to visit Ryan's parents. It was beautiful and peaceful.
My sister and her family were able to come and visit us at the Ranch on Mother's Day. The kids had a blast being together.
