Wonderful Weekend WrapUp!


This weekend was pretty awesome at the Casa De Dysfunction.

Friday night, Elayna spent the night with my parents. And my son drove around in the car we gave him, which was mildly terrifying. Otherwise, it was an uneventful night. ;o)

Saturday was a beautiful day - finally!! We went to an animal rescue event, where we may have found our next family member. More to come on that later in the week! =D
We picked up Elayna, and ran errands. We made a delicious dinner of homemade chicken noodle soup, watched movies, and relaxed. Shelbie's friend stayed the night.

Sunday was the big day. First we went to morning church service. Then we went home for a few hours, had lunch and did a few things around the house. Tim had to work, but fortunately got off at 4pm; just in time to head to church for the baptisms! John, Shelbie, and Elayna were baptized in a very touching ceremony. Our wonderful pastor chose specific bible verses for each person who was baptized today (my three plus 2 teenage boys). My parents attended, along with my sister, niece & her fiance, John's mother & grandmother, and the kids' dad, step-mother, and baby sister. I was so proud of John & the girls, and I am feeling incredibly blessed right now! :o)
After the baptisms, we went home to watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The crowd shots were incredibly fast, but John and I saw ourselves several times, and the kids once. I think the Wagstaff's house is beautiful, and it was really exciting to watch!

Here are a few pictures from the Baptism Ceremony.
