After Party

After Beemer's baptism, we were lucky enough to have a few days to play with AT's family.  

We created these fabulous tye-dye creations.  
(Thanks to Beemer's birthday gift from Grandma and Grandpa.)

We also took them to the zoo (on the coldest day of their trip) and spent lots of time at the new Sea Lion exhibit.  Because it was a colder, weekday afternoon, we had it all to ourselves.

It was magical.

Afterward, we all went home to get warm and take naps.
It was a great visit, come back soon!

Beemer's Baptism

Beemer chose to be baptized over Thanksgiving weekend this year.  It helped to remind us of some of the things we are most grateful for.

One of the things we cherished most was that all of Beemer's grandparents were able to come for the baptism - all they graciously provided the talks and prayers for the day. 
While we really missed the family and friends who couldn't be with us, it was special for Beemer to have her grandparents all here.

Afterward, Beemer said "I feel different.  That's the only word I can think of to use right now."  Congratulations Beemer!

It's Great to Be 8!

Beemer is 8!

She started her celebration with getting her ears pierced.

It was most-definitely a Monster High Birthday.

This cheesecake was her request.  It was pretty awesome.
We sure love you, Beems!
Happy Birthday!
