After dropping the ball last year, I managed to produce a few crocheted creatures for the auction this year. My goal was to have enough for each niece or nephew, but I only ended up with 9. Sorry Kelbie, Jade, and Jaren!
Tatum started to take baths in a real bath at the reunion! In the past when we haven't had access to an infant tub it has been pure torture because she would just scream if you laid her down in the tub. But now that she can sit up she loves it!
And let me tell you, I would just love to take Claire home with me. She is the best little helper you could ask for! She always wanted to help give Tatum baths, and play with her and hold her. And she would always offer to put things away for me or go find things. I could get used to that. :)
The weather Saturday evening was beautiful and grandma, papa and the kids took full advantage of it, playing fishy fishy come into my ocean, no bears are out tonight and tag until it was dark.
Sunday morning we went to Church and then packed up and headed down to Utah so we could get to my the visitation for my grandpa's funeral that evening. As I mentioned we saw him on Wednesday afternoon when we first got into town and he passed away at 12:30 the next morning. Certainly he will be missed and we were sad to see him go. But I know he is with my grandma again, which is all he has wanted for the last 6 years, so it was hard to be too sad at his passing. Most of all I am grateful for the opportunity I had to live in his house for a year a half while I was in college. I was so blessed to be able to form a relationship with him before it was too late. He was a great man and I believe I am a better person for having known him.
