Abram's Blessing Day

April 13, 2014

Mommy and Daddy:

Nana and Papa:

Grandma and Grandpa:

Funny story about Abram's blessing suit . . .
I made Abram's blessing suit from scratch, like, I made up the pattern and everything.  Well, I thought I made it "too big" and I was purposefully trying to do so.  When I had completed everything but hemming the pants and sleeves, my mom suggested we should try it on him.  (And it was a good thing we did too!)  His blessing outfit fit him like a glove- we had almost cut both the pants and sleeves WAY too short, because we were positive they were going to be way too long.  Also, we had to schedule his blessing for the next Sunday because he would have outgrown his blessing suit if we had waited any longer.

Great-grandbaby #100!

Last year, my Grandma and Grandpa were only a couple of grand-babies away from having 100 great-grandchildren.  (Look at those two love birds!)

It kinda became a competition to see who would win the badge of honor for producing the one hundredth great grandchild.  Well, I am proud to introduce you all to the winner. . .

Isn't he adorable?!?!

The Number Four

AJ and I have an ironic, reoccurring number in our life together, and that number is four

We first met on August 4th, at a singles ward FHE.
It took AJ less than a week—four days to be exact—to convince me that I liked him better than the missionary I had been writing.
On October 4th AJ proposed to me on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Sometime while AJ and I were dating we noticed-- to our astonishment-- that we were exactly 4 years, 4 months and 4 days apart in age.
December 4th we were sealed in the Mesa Arizona temple- 4 months to the day after we met.
Soon after we were married, we learned we were expecting, our due date … September 4th.
Unfortunately, like 95% of babies, Samuel didn’t come on his due date, he came four days early instead.
At the end of my pregnancy with Lily, we were hoping she would come four days early too- so she would be born in April, the fourth month.
However, she was born on May 5th, four days late.  (The LONGEST days of my life!)
Abram’s claim to fame here is that he isn’t actually our third child, he is our fourth, and he was born in 2014.  (Maybe that is stretching it a bit?)
Bonus:  I was pregnant with our fourth child on our 4th anniversary, I can honestly say I never thought that was gonna happen.  Four babies in four years?!  That is kind of impressive.

                Well, that about sums it up for now.  I am interested to see where the number 4 inserts itself into our life in the future.

I am not going to lie, I will be looking for it. *Wink, wink*
