Oops...don't have pictures of the baptism yet.
But she was baptized on Sunday and looked very nice.
Flash even said "Now she belongs to our church!"
We had a lovely brunch out afterwards
at a surprisingly nice place right here in our town!

Flash is 5

And we had a costume party!
Now that he's 5 he can chew gum.
Tomorrow he'll have his 5 year-old doctor appointment and shots.
Afterwards we're going to get a Bionicle with his Birthday money.

Where does the time go???

I am having a hard time keeping up with the blog,
between work and home.
The baby is wonderful... a pretty good sleeper and just adorable.
Not yet 3 months.

Flash is turning 5 tomorrow!
He gets to chew gum starting rule.
So I bought him a pack.
Sugarfree bubble gum flavor.
He's bringing ice cream sandwiches to school instead of cupcakes.
His choice.

We'll have his party on Saturday.
Invited a few kids from school and t-ball.
Its a costume party, since he's often in costume.
He'll be spiderman or a firefighter...he hasn't decided.

Grandma and Grandpa are coming for the weekend...
for Flash's birthday, and for the baby's baptism.
We're doing the baptism low key.
Hubby would like to be the Daddy, so a pastor friend of his is doing the service.
His parents and the congregation.
My folks will come for a visit in Spring...when the weather is better.
And its better that we don't have everyone descend on our little town at once.

So...birthdays baptisms and the requisite housecleaning
Oh and a sick dog.
and work of course.
Just busy and distracted.
But a good busy and a good distracted!
