Emily was working on a project for her PE class with Xiomara. They went outside to demonstrate volleyball skills and make a video of said skills. When they came inside, this is the clip she shared. I couldn't contain my laughter.
Note: she is fine and was laughing with all of us.
I received the meat pie recipe from Carol Mahar a while back and finally decided to try it, since our freezer is now full of ground pork and that's what it calls for. I followed the recipe, cooked the meat for 3 hours and made the pie crust and it all turned out perfectly! I was so happy with the way it looked and was even more please with how it tasted! I guess I'll be making this more often!
We also enjoyed pumpkin soup (a recipe from my brother),
broccoli salad (recipe from Aunt Angie)
and sliced apples (from the fridge).
It was very pleasing to my eye and my tummy.
(But, I will admit, some of the kids didn't like it.)
Love nursing my baby!
Sweet happy little girl!
4 weeks old!
This is the onesie that Grandma Graham gave to her!
She finally went to sleep but wouldn't stay asleep if I laid her down. So I tried the tummy arrangement and she was out for the night! Warm and snuggly and happy and sleeping! That's the way she likes it and we especially like the sleeping part! Sweet baby!
RoseMarie wanted to be held today but I had lots of things to do so this is what had to happen today. I'm not sure why but it was a solution that helped me keep her happy and get dinner made. I remember having to do this with Xiomara, when she was this little, because the three older siblings were all in her space and she just needed a break. At least that was my interpretation. Anyway, all's well that ends well.
And here is her dress! It was very challenging because of the type of fabric, and my machine kept acting up, but they were determined and persevered! She was so excited to wear it to church!
It was also a special day because we blessed RoseMarie. I arrived a little later than I should have so I was changing her clothes during the opening song and had just finished when Kevin announced that we would bless her. He came and got her and gave a very nice blessing to RoseMarie Genevive. She handled it very well and was ready to eat when they were done. We had a small circle of friends this time around (so getting their pictures was much easier).
