4th of July and Gabe's Blessing

It was a very stressful, yet very fun weekend! Archie took Friday off so we could finish getting the house all ready for Gabe's blessing on Sunday. We cleaned, shampooed the carpets and made food like crazy all day!

Independence Day Archie's mother agreed to watch Gabe and Ty and Cristi's two boys while we went off for lunch at Olive Garden and to the movie "Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaur." Excellent movie in 3-D! Then we all came back to our house for some games and fireworks! It was very exciting! Gabe loved the fireworks, though, he didn't last too long since it was his bedtime. He was glued to the light show the whole time!

I'm very grateful to live in a country where I can worship how, where, and what I may; vote for my leaders; and raise my baby boy how I see fit!

Sunday was Gabe's special day. We dressed him up in his little blessing outfit and Archie did an excellent job and we had so many friends and family that showed up to give him and us support! I didn't know if our little town home would hold so many adults and kids, but most stayed outside and the Wii occupied some as well! Thanks to everyone to helped with food, preparations, set-up, and take-down! Your help made the day go a lot smoother!!!


  1. i'm so glad we could be there for Gabe's big day. What a great get together! Let's have a game night sometime soon. :)
