A SWEET BABY RECEIVES A NAME AND A BLESSING

We had two great Sunday activities yesterday. First was our oldest son's youngest child's baby blessing. --Odd sentence, isn't it?-- Our son, Kraut, blessed his baby and gave him a name that he will be known by on the records of The Church. It was a beautiful blessing for a truly beautiful baby. This tiny person has wise eyes, I think, as if he knows all the secrets of the Universe. I wish he could speak, I'd love to know what he has to say.


Sweet new baby with his Momma. I forgot to steal the Binky so you can't see his little mouth.


Big sister Bookworm will be a great help to her parents with this new little person.






After the baby blessing at the church we came back to Kraut and The Soap Queen's house for lunch. There was a table simply groaning with food and after all the stomachs were filled to overflowing there was groaning all around. I was one of the groaners for sure. I simply ate too much. I will post pictures later of the kids and their gluttony.

Here are three of our little granddaughters, all eight years old.

After lunch, Gilmore Girl, the Great Hunter and Curly Sue, Tuesday and Mary Poppins came home to our house to await the second dinner of the day. We lazed on the lawn swings. Of course, lawn swing lazing means eating rhubarb so I ate two pieces, as if I were in any way hungry.

At 5:00 we went the The Great Hunter's parent's house where they were holding a birthday dinner for our daughter, Gilmore Girl. I was not going to eat hardly anything but you must know one thing about The Great Hunter's mother. She is a fabulous cook. I ate a full plate of food plus the best lemon cake I have ever tasted.


When I got home I was felt like an startled puffer fish. If I were near the ocean someone could just roll me into the waves and I would have floated off, perhaps all the way to Hawaii without needing to eat one more bite. I would be an island and stray seagulls could nest on my stomach and raise squawking young.

So, Sunday was a great day for family togetherness and good food and good times. It was also Kraut and The Soap Queen's anniversary. What more could you ask? An anniversary and a new baby and a birthday.
