sister’s baby blessing

Filed under: family — Jana @ 3:10 pm

We took a quick road trip up to Utah over the weekend to go to my sister’s baby blessing.

We drove through the night thursday night.  Which I actually liked better due to the fact that our kids slept for a big chunk of the trip, there was no traffic, and it didn’t seem like we wasted a whole day driving.  I watched a bunch of redbox videos on the way down, which made the trip go faster.

Have you done the redbox yet?  Seriously, best invention EVAR!  The outside ones are open all night.  The movies only cost a dollar a day.  And you can return your dvds to any redbox machine!  So we literally rented dvds in California watched them on the way to Utah, and dropped them off when we got there.  Brilliant.

I got a bedheaded Carmen out to go to the bathroom early in the am, so I had to get a shot of her sitting in the big chair.


I am lame at taking pictures, so fast forward to the day of the blessing.

Mose and Daddy… Looking dapper in their Sunday best.


Here is my sister holding her fav nephew.


The rest of the pictures were of my kids mauling little baby Kaius…


He is so cute… he slept the whole time!  And my kids were flopping him around like a rag doll.  Good thing babies are more resilient than we give them credit for, although, tell that to a first time mom.  Sorry Carly. :)  I promise they didn’t hurt him.




  1. i LOVE those pictures. I know they didnt hurt Kaius :D He’s a tough guy!

  4. So glad for Carly that your whole family was there! As it turned out, all our ‘sick’ kids woke up feeling pretty good darnit! Albeit they didn’t wake until close to 11! Oh well, better safe than sorry I guess, but I would have LOVED to see you and Lee and the kids and Ryan and your Dad and especially your beautiful wonderful Mom!!!

  7. Awesome post!! It seems you have some cool kids. I’m glad there are other people out there who care about their kids as much as I care about mine. If you want to see what others are doing about their kids in similar situations as yours, check us out at MrBabies.blogspot.com
