Weekend Guests, Family Reunion & Babies

Wow, this has taken over a week to post! Work has been crazy busy and then we went out of town for the 4th of July weekend. Busy, busy, busy!

We had these two lovely ladies spend a few days with us. They are so fun and ever so cute. I miss them already. Jamie (on the right) is hubby's granddaughter and came down for some CAD training with her roommate Bethany (on the left) who came to keep her company. This picture was their last morning just before they headed off to Lagoon. Hopefully, they will return soon for another visit.

Then off we went to the Jones Family Reunion in Clarkston. The first thing we did when we arrived was to give my mom her Mother's Day gift. (and yes, I know I am late...but it was so worth it.) I ordered a piggy bank from Lynn. Here is my Mom's smiling face when she opened her cute little piggy. We even put some money in to start her out right.

Alex grabbed his skateboard out of the trunk and ran off with his cousins. I took this picture of Tal...I love his hair, it was flying up on one side and he was loving life and didn't care about his hair. He is such a cute kid.
Here the little kids are trying to hit the pinata. Poor Spounge Bob. I think everyone secretly wants to smack him up side the head.

We played a little bingo and had a silent auction.

My little sister Jill did a great job of planning this and actually making people interact. Here she is with her husband Scott and son Cody calling out bingo numbers

We also had two new babies born this week and I didn't get any pictures to post. Our first little addition is Paxton James and you can see him on Emily's blog. He weighed 7 lbs 4 oz and was 20 inches long. Next we welcomed Emelia Marie who weighed in at 10 lb 4 oz and was also about 20 inches. Emelia is having a few complications right now and has been in NICU. She is out of ICU and in her own room but still in the hospital. I am sure she could use a few more prayers. As soon as we get new pictures we will post them too.
