A Baby and a Baby Blessing

A couple weeks ago we got to spend a Sunday with some family.  Justin's cousin Tagg lives in Allen, TX which is just north of Dallas.  They welcomed their new baby boy back in July and blessed him on September 8.  Their ward meets at 1pm, and since some of their family had to hit the road and head home after Sacrament meeting they decided to have a nice little brunch at their house before church.  The kids had a great time.  They always do when we go to Tagg and Katie's.  I was surprised by how much they enjoyed playing with Beckett's toys.  We are a house of girls so they don't get to play with cars and train sets very often.  We had such a nice time and look forward to spending more time with Justin's aunt and uncle, Ned and Gena, now that Ned has started working in Dallas.  We love having family close!

Grace LOVED the sit 'n spin

Beckett's belly is the cutest!  His dress shirt couldn't contain it.  I don't know how many times someone buttoned it, just to have it pop open within minutes. 

Maybe my girls need a train set for Christmas

Sweet baby Griffin.  This baby is one of the chunkiest I have ever seen.  Love those cheeks!

After the baby blessing we headed to Dallas where another one of Justin's cousins is living while he's going to dental school.  Tyson and Sarah welcomed baby Dallas just 4 days earlier, and had just returned home that afternoon.  We stopped in to visit and meet the new little guy.  He is so sweet!  It's so hard to remember my babies being this small... and they were even smaller!  Oh, how I miss those newborn days.

Baby Dallas

We had such a good time with some of our extended family.  It's hard living so far away from our parents and grandparents, but it is nice to have cousins in Dallas.  We're grateful for them and their willingness to always watch our kids so we can attend the temple every now and again.

We are so glad you were able to come to Griff's blessing! We love that we're close enough to see y'all every so often!
