McCool's baby dedication~

Sept. 16th~I picked Emma up from school and noticed that she was hot. She was complaining of being cold. I had her dressed for gymnastics and decided to check her temp. It was 100.9. So, off to after hours and concluded that she had the flu. YUCKY!!!! McCool's baby dedication was the next night. (Sept. 17th) How could this be happening? Should I cancel? We had already missed the dedication twice due to DisneyWorld trips. After crying for several hours, we decided it would be best to go ahead and dedicate him. (i had the perfect outfit for him and Emma one to match, a cake ordered for the after party) I know those things seem so small, but they were important to me. So, my mom comes and keeps Emma while we go to the dedication. (she hated to miss~and she cried about that too) Rich's parents could not come either. But, our neighbors were there and Rich's aunt and uncle. And, my sweet friend Christie, who took pics for us! This was a very emotional time for me, but I'm glad that we went ahead with it! We had a great time!!! the cake that was made for the after party that we had to cancel. We hope to have a get together with all our family soon!

"May Angels guide your tiny feet and bring you smiles to wear. And may our Heavenly Father bless you and always keep you in His care."

Sick Emma had the flu and was quarantined to the upstairs~which was perfect for her. She had the whole play room, her bathroom and bedroom. McCool missed her so much!!! And I was devastated that she missed the dedication.

Playing outside...

My kids love to be outside. Especially McCool. He cries when we go in!!! Emma said that this spelled, "the B-I-B-L-E, yes that's the book for me." We are working on our letters ok!
walking around the house....
Now, McCool's favorite thing to do, is to run as fast as he can to the end of the driveway and take off. This is Rich sprinting after him!!
sweet Emma!!!
McCool was amazed at Rich cutting the grass. He would not move.
peeking around....
