Funnies by Benny...

So, I'd be lying if I said that I'm not growing tired of blogging. I think its just a phase but lately its been more stressful than fun to think of blog posts. I think this is primarily because I'm 99% more tired than I've ever been in my life.

BUT, I think I'll get my bloggin' groove back once I get some of my old energy back...maybe I should say IF I get it back. (I hope I do!)

Anyway, tonight I realized that we just have to start writing down some of the funny things my 3 year old nephew Ben says. He's ridiculously goofy/smart/funny/thoughtful...and the stuff he comes up with stick with us and make us giggle for days.

1. "Muff-cakes" = cupcakes
2. "Saint Louis Prague" = where Uncle Paul & Auntie live
3. "Jesus hurt my feelings." = reason #876 why he couldn't fall asleep one night
4. "I don't like FOX 9 Morning News on for me. Please turn the TV to channel 2." = what he said to his mom one day while she watched the news
5. "That's John Jacob's bed." = when asked who sleeps in the other bed in his room. (John Jacob is his imaginary friend. Sound familiar? Yes, you know him. John Jacob Jingleheimer-Schmidt)
6. "Haha. I'm Spiderman...because I'm Santa." = makes no sense...but still funny.
7. "Auntie Paul" = how he collectively referred to Paul & I.
8. "Henry-Greta" = what he renamed my parents' chicken, whose real name is "Henrietta". Ben has a friend named Henry and a second cousin named Greta, so "Henry-Greta" just made more sense to him!
9. "I work in Minneapolis. It's one of the Twin Cities." = whenever he wears a collared shirt, he says it's his "work shirt" and that he's going to Minneapolis.
10. "Who's gonna play the guitar?" = whenever a song comes on that he likes, he makes sure that every instrument is covered...even if its the tambourine, harmonica, clarinet or any other instrument NOT played in the song.

He's cute and goofy - we love our Benny! Hope you got a couple good chuckles today too!
K+P+B (baby!)

We're having a baby!

Yes! It's true...and we're so stinkin' excited. We checked 5 times, just to be sure! :)

Does this amazingly good news excuse us from being gone from our blog for so long? I sure hope so!

I have to confess that I've been avoiding you. All I want to talk about is our baby and I had to keep it a I avoided you. But, you're really going to get it.

Get ready for baby updates galore.

Consider yourself warned!
Ma & Pa Ras :)

Seriously, we owe you about 1,000 posts.

It's been nearly a month since our last post...that's ridiculous, isn't it?

The other day, our blog commented on itself, asking to be updated...seriously, it did. Go look at the last post comments.

So, really what's another week when you've already waited nearly a month, right?

See you then!

30 Day Challenge: Day 30

Oh, what? Did you miss the last 10 blog posts? Oh. Yeah. They're there...just keep looking...

This is what I'm changing today to make my life better...

I will no longer be doing 30 day blog challenges, for several reasons:

1. I don't really like being told what to do...or what to blog about

2. 30 days in a row is a really big commitment

3. You guys miss my personalized blog posts...right?

I thought a blog challenge would be great...but it became stressful. So, I quit. I hope you're ok with that.

(Sorry, Bri ! I tried. Though, you're still on Day I think we might be on the same page here!)

Things will start getting back to normal around here (or as normal as they ever were).

30 Day Challenge: Day 19

Worst job I've ever had...

Oh, I could find something good and something bad in every place I've worked. And with a list as long as mine, let's not even get into it, right?

I just asked Paul which job was his worst and he couldn't even remember.

Maybe that's a good sign that we're content in our current jobs? OR a bad sign that we're losing our memory?

Either way...this was a lame post...again. Sorry!


30 Day Challenge: Day 18

Today I am wearing...

Oh. I picked a bad day for this one. It's the weekend, so I'm in my typical weekend pants, flippy-floppies and a tank top.

Sorry to disappoint.

If its any consolation, my underwear are pink. That's kinda exciting...right?


30 Day Challenge: Day 17

Funny Travel Story

Hmmm...well, one of my favorite funny travel stories stars my better half.

As you may recall, Paul & I honeymooned in Puerto Rico and the Southern Caribbean. Well, on our cruise ship, there was a dance club. I wanted to go to the dance club EVERY night, but Paul did not. He did however concede a couple nights and we danced the night away. One particular night, Paul was feelin' it. He was busy struttin' his stuff on the dance floor when I looked up to notice that a fan club had formed around him. 10, maybe 12 people (a mixture of guys and girls) were crowded around cheering Paul on. When Paul noticed, things only got more intense. He whipped out every MTV music video dance move he had ever seen.

If you've never seen Paul dance, let me clue you in...He gives it his ALL! What he lacks in skill, he makes up for in heart. AND...apparently his fan club could feel "his passion".

It. Was. Awesome.

I was dancing right next to him laughing my butt off. That night, I was upstaged....100%.

I couldn't have been prouder.


30 Day Challenge: Day 16

Weeeelllll, we just got back from a week-long trip to Ibiza.

Just kidding...I just took the week off, but I'm back at it today!

Cash, Credit or Debit? What's your financial status?

Well, this is a little personal, don't you think? But, you know me!

Overall, we're cash and debit type folk. We use our credit cards only for large purchases (flights, hotels, concert tickets, etc.) where we can rack up some major miles or dollars. We only use credit cards that allow us to earn miles or dollars for our purchases and then we proceed to pay off our monthly balance EVERY month. We kinda feel like we're tricking the bank each up, suckers!

We aren't huge shoppers or overly-materialistic people. We don't much care what brand of clothes we buy and we're not afraid to wear second-hand items. We choose to spend our fun money on experiences...dining, movies, shows, concerts, trips rather than things like designer shoes or fancy cars.

We live a "work hard, play hard" lifestyle and feel we fully deserve to enjoy this life of ours! Thankfully, we aren't too short-sighted. We talk about retirement a lot and how we want to retire early and travel (more!) so we try to remember the future now as we continue to save each month. We need to find ourselves a financial advisor, as we fully know we don't know everything when it comes to planning, investing, saving for the future so we're on the look-out for one now.

Overall, I'd say that we take turns playing the role of "voice of reason" when it comes to spending. I would say, however, that Mr. Rasmusson is the President of the Finance Committee...which is a role I'm happy to have him fill.

Happy (smart) spending,

30 Day Challenge: Day 15

What's your addiction?

I can't say...

Just kidding. I'm innocent. My main addiction is probably coffee. We grind the beans nightly for a fresh pot of coffee daily! I drink 1 cup prior to the 4am workout, 1 after it and then I pour myself a 2-cup travel mug for the road. I don't drink the coffee at work (because it tastes weird) so instead I fill my mug with tea when I get to work....and then sometimes fill it again.

(Yes, that's A LOT of liquid. And yes, I visit the restroom often in the mornings. I know you were wondering.)

Every Friday, I swing through Caribou Coffee (my favorite) and get a Tea Latte. I used to get a Northern Light Latte but switch over to the Tea Lattes because they are amazing.

I'm not opposed to coffee with dessert or coffee during class or coffee at any other random time during the day. I love coffee.

My mother also loves coffee. "I learned it by watching you, Mom."


30 Day Challenge: Day 14

Thoughts on my body image...

Well, I'm starting on week 7 (of 12) of P90X and so far I've lost a whopping 0 pounds and feel a whopping 0% more, my thoughts right now are "WTF?"

If you haven't heard of P90X, it's essentially a slew of dvd's (yoga, kick boxing, weightlifting, cardio, plyos, etc.) that you're supposed to rotate daily (6-7 days a week) for 12 weeks. According to the YouTube testimonials (go watch them) I should look like an aerobics instructor (minus the sweatbands) by the end of week 12. Being as though I'm now over halfway through with no changes, I'm going to holler "Phooey!" on this one.

OR...maybe something is supposed to magically happen on the last day??? I won't hold my breath.

Aside from that, my thoughts on my body image are "ho-hum". As in boring...routine. I'm confident that its something I'll spend my life working (not obsessing) on. I'm an eater. I enjoy cooking. Those 2 things probably won't change.

I'd consider myself athletic. I like to move (it, move it). My "perfect body" (for myself) is athletic with a little muscle. I have no desire to be stick-thin. That's not realistic (for me), healthy or attractive (in my opinion).

I think there's something to be said about being able to pull your own weight (literally) and knowing that I can take care of things on my own. It's true. I don't have Paul around to carry heavy things for me. I have him around because I like him...and he does my laundry!

Needless to say, I could stand to lose a few...or maybe my scale is broken?

30 Day Challenge: Day 13

Favorite Photo of Yourself...

Ummm...maybe this one? It's a photo of me at the very end of our wedding day. I'm a little glisten-y, a little tired and a lotta happy. On this day, I loved my hair, my dress(es) and was just plain happy.

Yep, I think this will be my favorite...for now!

30 Day Challenge: Day 12

I should really get rid of...

That pair of J. Crew jeans from high school. They were tight in high school. They are more tight now. By the time they fit again, they will no longer be in fashion.

It's over. Period.

But...I'm still keeping 'em.

Don't judge,

30 Day Challenge: Day 11

Guilty Pleasures

Uh oh. Here's a good way to lose some followers....

Ok, here they are in the form of a Top 5 Listing.

5. Awkward Family Photos. (I think I know a lot of these people...seriously.)

4. Eating entire bags of (cooked) frozen peas. (Is that normal?)

3. Hip-hop music (It brings me back to my college days...leave me alone.)

2. $6 bottles of wine (I'm no fancy-pants!)

1. Crazy, human-interest TV shows, i.e. TLC's Hoarders and Sisterwives and Bravo's Real Housewives of (insert name of city here). (In comparison, EVERYTHING else looks normal!)

And, here's Paul's Guilty Pleasure du Jour:

Reeses Pieces. He. Loves. Them.

Is it Friday yet?

30 Day Challenge: Day 10

What do you love most about yourself?

Oh boy! If my sisters saw this blog title, they'd have plenty to say.

"Oh, will you only choose 1 thing?" or "This oughta be a LONG post." Sisters....

Yes, I do fill the self-absorbed baby sister role...but I'm pretty sure that's my job!

On with the challenge, so here it is...the trait that I like most about myself:

I'm obliviously ambitious.

Completely unaware that there are things in the world that I can't accomplish

...if I REALLY want to.

Call me dumb. Crazy. Immature. It's just the way I am and I guess I'm alright with it!

Well, I'm off to become President...jk!

30 Day Challenge: Day 9

Which lesson did you learn the hard way?

Call me a copycat, but this post is also about my Mom. Bri, we'll say your cute post on your mom was inspiration!

My mom and I don't talk everyday. In fact, she hardly ever calls me. She says "You're an adult. You have your own life. I don't need to bother you. You'll call me when you want to."


But, she's right. I do call her when I need her or just plain want to talk to her. There was a time when I thought that my mom held the reigns a bit too tight. She'd call or text (in my opinion) just a tinge too often. Mothers...

I'm not sure who changed, me or her, but the day she decided to loosen the reigns was the day I wanted her to tighten them up again.

If she was trying to prove a point, she did.

Because we don't talk everyday, I SO look forward to chatting with her and telling her about my latest shenanigans. I've also found that talking to her less makes me love our family get togethers even more. We simply don't shut up when we're together. This reminds me of why my dad says he's a quiet man..."Well, someone has to listen." ha!

To sum this up: My late-learned-lesson is that at 27 1/2 years old (am I still young enough to use half years?) I now know that my mom simply gets better as I get older.

Overall, Paul & I are lucky folks with great parents! We're thankful they've allowed us the freedom to establish our own little family but happy they still want to be a part of it!

Thanks 'rents!

30 Day Challenge: Day 8

Your 3 favorite blogs...

Oh, I love blog-readin'! And I definitely have more than 3 favorite blogs BUT here are my 3 order:

Yep, these pretty much sum up my interests....home renovations, babies, and frugality! Plus I secretly want to be a hippie and SouleMama and FrugalBabe have just enough hippie-ness to keep me coming back for more! Great blogs, in my opinion!

Happy Reading,


30 Day Challenge: Day 7

Last thing you took a picture of...

Again, this one is on the kiddos! Friday was Ben's 3rd Birthday, so Paul & I had special plans to make his day wonderful. We headed over to Choo Choo Bob's Train Store in St. Paul.

Ben is a train-lover! He came prepared, sporting his Choo Choo Bob's shirt and a big grin!

As it turns out, Claire also liked the trains AND this miniature sized bench, that she performed some heart-attack-causing-acrobatics on!This place really is cool. Check out all of those play tables filled with trains! door is Izzy's homemade ice cream! After a little cool-off there, we hit the Como Park Zoo. Let's just say we all slept well that night!

Choo Choo,


30 Day Challenge: Day 6

Today was hilarious because...

Since I'm already playing by my own rules, I decided I'd change this to:

Yesterday was hilarious because...

We had our niece & nephew (Ben & Claire) Friday at around noon until yesterday late afternoon. We love spending time with any of our 9 nieces and nephews (yes, 9!) but it's really fun when we get them to ourselves (we're not great sharers).

As you know, kids make most things hilarious (and sticky) but if I had to choose 1 hilarious moment from yesterday it would be coming to you courtesy of 3 year old Benny.

Scene: Driving in my sister's mini van, childrens' music blaring - "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt...".

Ben: "Auntie. I work in Minneapolis."

Me: "Oh yeah? Where's that?"

Ben: "It's one of the Twin Cities."

Me: "Oh cool. Uncle Paul works there too. You should meet him for lunch."

Ben: "Ok. I work with him."

Me: "Who? Uncle Paul?"

Ben: "No. John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt."*

Seriously. Where do they come up with this stuff?

Love 'em!


*I did google his name and it is, indeed, 4 separate names...who knew? Probably Ben.

30 Day Challenge: Day 5

Goal to complete before September 1st

Hmmmm...that's soon. Ok, there's no shortage of goals/to-do's on our, I'd say our yard.

We started some yard renovation-type efforts last year and haven't really wrapped them up yet. So, I would love it if we could remove the gross wooden terraces from our back yard, re-grade the soil and seed it for grass. THEN, finish up the landscaping around the house and garage. For the sake of timing, I'm going to stick with the terrrace removal and reseeding as the goal to accomplish before September 1st. I'll post pics'll agree that they are gross.

Yikes. Better get going,

30 Day Challenge: Day 4

Your 6 word biography

Wife. Auntie. Daughter. Sister. Student. Marketer.

Traveler. Foodie. Nameologist. Wordsmith. Overall-Enthusiast. Jock.

Did you honestly think I could only use 6 words? I should have put "talker" as one of them too!

For fun, here's Paul's (according to me):
Witty. Smart. Reader. Thoughtful. Dedicated. Sports-freak.


30 Day Challenge: Day 3

Annnnnddd....we're back! Well, I'm happy to report that our summit for work went off without a hitch and my final summer class paper is complete! So, let's carry on with the Blogging Challenge.

I'm not sure if I can technically say I'm a part of the challenge, since I'm making up my own rules. (Bri?)

What part of your life is moving too fast? Too slow?

Hmmm...good question. Looking back, a lot is moving too fast. I'm now considered in my "late 20's". Paul and I are in year 2 of marriage. We've lived in our house for 3 years. I'm starting my last year of Grad School. What the heck? I'm a full-blown adult now. Sneaks up on ya.

Of course, I also have a pretty big list of things that are moving too slow. I CANNOT wait for the time we're ready to have kids. I think I've been waiting for that time since I was 4. Don't get creeped out. I've just loved babies for as long as I remember. With work, nothing moves fast enough for me. Which explains why I've moved myself around as much as I have. I can say that I've finally found a company that makes me feel like I'm growing and developing. I love it!

As a standard, I'm always in a hurry. Sometimes I find myself wishing away the present for the future. Shame on me, I know. I have to remind myself that Paul & I are pretty darn fortunate for what we have. We should be savoring these days...sleeping in, 2 pots of coffee in our pj's on the recliners watching cooking shows, traveling like its nobody's business, testing out new restaurants. Life is good, but I'm the optimist. I know it's only going to get better from here on out. This thought reminds me of a song we love.

"Something good this way comes" by Jakob Dylan.

This phrase just sticks me with. No matter your situation, something good is on its way. Even if its's nice to be looking for it, right!

"The trouble, doll, is not moving moutains but digging the ground that you're on."

Diggin' it,

30 Day Challenge: Day 2

Hola! I'm here...just a little tardy. I'm ok with that. I'm in my last 2 weeks of my summer grad class and we have a BIG summit in town for work this week, so things will be busy! I think I should have called these posts "30 Post Challenge: Day 2" as I plan to contribute 30 posts in the next 30 days BUT I'm not quite sure if they'll arrive daily. I'll do my best!

How do you answer the question - "What do you do?"

I've been in my current role for about 8 months now and I usually answer this question like this: "I work in Marketing for a Danish-based hearing instruments manufacturer." I used to say "I work in Marketing for a hearing aid company." BUT I'd usually receive this reply, "WHAT?" (with hand cupped around ear) I cannot tell you how many times I've heard THAT joke. (I still laugh though!)

In more detail, I help Audiologists market their small businesses to consumers through events, practice branding materials, in-office signage, newsletters, and most currently through online platforms. More and more, I'm being allowed the opportunity to dig deeper on the areas that really interest marketing & practice branding, which is fun for me. I really like my job! I work with great people, my bosses encourage me to voice my opinion and I'm allowed the freedom to figure things out on my own in most cases.

As many of you know, I've been with quite a few companies ever since graduating with my undergrad in 2006. I have a small case of undiagnosed "Ants in the Pants" where things just do not seem to most fast enough for me. If I grow tired of my position and/or don't see opportunity for growth, I get the "itch" to start looking for something new. I'm happy to report that this isn't the case in my current position. My bosses have expressed that they want to help me develop and grow as much as I I definitely like that!

Well, it's 4:30am and I should have started working out at least 30 minutes I'll jump (literally) on that right now!

Have a great day,

just K

30 Day Challenge: Day 1

30 Day Blogging Challenge? Good joke, Kendra. You haven't blogged since July 1st. Whoops! The summer has been a bit too busy and completely gotten away on me. A friend and fellow blogger has encouraged me to participate...and in life, and in general, I'm a participator. So, here goes...

Best/Worst Blogging Experience

I like writing and have ever since I was little. I prefer to write like I talk (go ahead, say it..."non-stop!") in non-sensical ramblings. When I first started this blog, almost 2 years ago to share our wedding plans, I struggled with what I'd say, how I'd say it, who'd be reading, and what they'd think. Sometimes these thoughts still creep into my mind, but I think my best blogging experience, so far, has been realizing that these concerns are unimportant. I consider this blog to be an online scrapbook of our life. Blogging forces me to take more pictures and jot down random happenings so that one day, we can lift our spectacles, scratch our bums and say to eachother "Hey, you...remember when we were fun?" or "Oh gosh, I looked good without wrinkles." I think I especially look forward to letting our (future) kids get a peek into what our life was like "back when".

I can just imagine...

"See kids...we were so NOT lame. Now, go to bed so I can watch Hoarders in peace."

I've really enjoyed blogging and look forward to looking back at how our words, thoughts and concerns change over the years. For the time being, we'll continue documenting our travels, happy hours, family events and wonderful friendships.

Thanks for being a part of the experience!

A sweep-over in Milwaukee.

Last weekend, we joined a group of friends for a long weekend trip to Milwaukee to watch the Twins vs. Brewers games. This kind of trip is normal for us. Paul will go ANYWHERE there is baseball, especially the Twins. I, on the other hand, will go straight-up reason needed. I'm addicted to traveling.

And yes, Wisconsin counts as a vaction, thank you very much! (Right, Bri?)

It was a bummer that the Twins didn't win a single game, but we still had fun...

so definitely not a wasted trip!

Pre-game happy hour at Moe's Irish Pub.

Our good friends, The Berndts.

The original "Burnt Brat Tailgaters"!

Yes, we set up pre-game tailgating in the handicap section of the Super 8 Motel.

We're classy like that.

Later, tailgating moved to a more appropriate location: Miller Stadium.

Look who else caught the game? Our favorite fastfood characters! "I'm lovin' it!"

Go Team,

Everyone's back...

Backstreet, us, this blog, everyone really.

Sorry for the delay...but there's been a whole lotta fun goin' on around here! A couple weeks back, I went on a trip to Chicago for work and then ended up staying, meeting up with some friends and going to the New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys concert! (Did you just puke?)

The weekend was so fun for us girls AND I'm sure Paul appreciated having a weekend alone. Well, either that or he missed me dearly. I prefer the latter.

It was a GREAT concert and a really fun weekend.

I'm a Donnie fan!

NKOTBSB cd? A poster? Really? Yes, really.

Segway tour of Chicago - so much fun!

All of us girls at Kingston Mines, a really awesome Jazz club.

Chat soon,

Movie Date Night

Last Saturday, we had Movie Date Night with our good friends, The Treds. As usual, it was a blast!

Here, Paul & Amber discuss their "book club" (NERDS!)
We tried out a new place - Rojo, a Mexican restaurant in the Shops at West End in St. Louis Park. It was really good! After dinner, we went to the movie "Bridesmaids" - HILARIOUS! Go see it!

After the movie, we walked over to the patio at Crave for dessert and...

...a nightcap!

" Cheers" to a great night!

Thanks Treds!

This Week - Project #2

A new front fence!...only slightly more exciting than a new water heater, I know.

Sorry to disappoint, but the President of the Finance Committee (Paul) said we had to get some important (boring) projects taken care of before we could do any of the fun projects on my we're getting there. There's still a couple more mandatory projects yet to do, but if they are standing in the way of me and the fun projects...we should have them taken care of lickety-split!

We still need to stain the fence, and since the deck needs to be re-stained again this summer...I figured we could take care of it all at once. It looks 100 times better than the half-broken fence we had before. Glad that's done!

I promise, we'll have more fun projects to report back yet this summer...I hope!


This Week - Project #1

A new water heater - how exciting?!?!


But...nonetheless it was this week's first project. Never mind the fact that it took the guy 10 HOURS to install it (we won't get into that story).

Man, I just love boring projects.

More to come,

The Sweetest Day to be Married!

On May 29th, our good friends Ellen & Adam got hitched! They had a beautiful outdoor wedding at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina. (Thankfully, no rain!) It was short & sweet and as expected, perfectly put together!

Check out that dessert table!

Seriously? Amazing attention to details! Ellen is a designer and about as talented and creative as they come. (jealous!) She helped us create A LOT of stuff for our if you liked anything about our wedding...she probably had a hand in it!

Every table, was slightly different but equally cute!

Yep...she designed that!

Oh, and she made her hair clip and added the pink accents to her dress. She's spunky!

Thanks for inviting us, Ellen & Adam! It was a great way to start out the day...

That day, was also my parents' 40th wedding anniversary and my sister & brother-in-law's 12th wedding anniversary. Good work, people! Keep up the love!

It's Our 1st Anniversary!

It's hard to believe it went SO fast...but it was a really fun year for us!

To celebrate, we whipped out the top tier of our wedding cake - It had been in my parents' chest freezer for the last year! As good as the cake was on the day of our wedding, it's hard to imagine it could really be that good after a a FREEZER, but for the sake of tradition, we're going to cut into it tonight and give it a whirl! Wish us luck!
(I made a double batch of pumpkin devil's food cupcakes, just in case the cake was a flop!)

Since this weekend has been GORGEOUS...we spent yesterday at the Edina Art Fair, then had dinner at Capital Grille downtown. Today, we had breakfast at our favorite local greasy spoon and ended the day by grilling out on our deck. What a nice, relaxing weekend!

Here's to another great year of marriage!


When dancing on a your head.

Last weekend, I was able to get together with some college friends and celebrate Krista's upcoming nuptials. We celebrated in typical college fashion...on a party bus! Check out the was pretty cool!

(I still have a bump on my head from bonking it on the shelf when the bus driver took a crazy turn.)

Some of the fun ladies we celebrated with!

More fun ladies!

One came straight from work, one had a broken wrist (don't ask) and one was pregnant...yet fun was had by all!

Do some of these ladies look familiar? They should...2 were personal attendants and 1 was a bridesmaid at our wedding!

"Heart glasses girl" (below) is the guest of honor, Krista! She also insisted on wearing fake hill-billy teeth (as seen on the gal to her right, below) out to bars...she was a hit, per usual!
It was a blast and Paul & I look forward to celebrating again at their wedding next month!

Go wedding season,

"Friends in Christ"

A couple of weeks ago, we were able to celebrate with our good friends, Matt & Amber. Their little guy, Graeme, was baptized and we were honored to be his godparents...or as we've dubbed it "Friends in Christ"! You see, we want to be those "cool" godparents that Graeme comes to when he needs advice or tips on fashion (ha!) we thought "Friends" would be cooler than "Parents"!! JK!

Graeme-Bo and Paul-o doing a little post-baptism snuggle session!
Graeme & his Friends in Christ!

The Tredinnick Family!

The deacon asked the moms to stand up for a special prayer...this pictures is adorable.

Amber is a great mom!

The happy family!

(that's Graeme's baptismal cloth...not tp!)

It was a fun day of celebrating and we look forward to watching Graeme grow up...but hopefully not too quickly!

We love you Graeme,
