Wow, I don't think I am getting any better at this. Of course, it might help if I would do it more often! I love reading everyone's blogs, so I am determined to do better this year. Once again, who knows what jumble of pictures and dates, rhyme or reason (or lack of) that I may come up with! Welcome to our world!

Ok, so I'm not one to keep up real well, so we play "catch up" all the time! Let's go!
In March my sisters, mom and I took a trip to St. Louis to our eldest sister, Trish's home. We had so much fun and a wonderful visit. We stayed up 'til the wee hours watching movies and playing games. We went to the St. Louis museum of art and the zoo, and to Old St. Charles, a charming historic district with brick cobbled streets, gas street lamps and wonderful shopping (and I usually hate shopping)! Trish's grown daughters came from their various states of residence and it was good to see them as well as Molly, her youngest, who is still living at home. It was a great time and my family survived well without me. I'd better go more often!

Emma was baptised Sunday, February 1st, on her eighth birthday! It was a wonderful day. We had all our kids here, except Jessica, who was here in spirit as she is especially pro baptism these days! Also here were Jedd and Michelle (almost our kids), Aunt Shanna and her kids Jason, Vincent and Raeannen, Grandma and Grandpa Ercanbrack and Grandma and Grandpa Seamons. The program was very sweet. Sterling spoke on baptism, Katie spoke on the Holy Ghost, Grandma S. shared a poem "Three White Dresses", the primary aged kids sang "When I am Baptised", the Grandpa's said the prayers, and Morgan did a wonderful job baptising and confirming Emma. She followed tradition wearing the dress that Grandma Seamons made for Jessica when she was baptised, and then Katie, Sarah and Rachel wore it for their baptisms. Emma was very happy to become an official member of Jesus' church.

We celebrated the birthdays of Katie and Emma. They were born on Feb. 2nd and Feb. 1st, so we have always had a double celebration. They don't seem to mind. Katie is now 20- not a teenager any more! Emma turned 8 and was so excited to be baptised on the very day of her birthday!
The guy hiding behind Katie is Jedd, her fiance. He's a great guy. The kids love him and he is so good to Katie.
