For Jackie...

I promised Jackie that I would try to take some pictures while the family was here this weekend for Kaden's baptism. So here are a few from recent weeks...
Steven's parents were having some trouble with cats in their backyard so Steven took the Troopster over to their house to hopefully trick the kitties into thinking there was a dog there. From what I heard it sounded like Trooper did a better job chasing children then cats, but he seemed to really enjoy himself.


A few weeks ago I took Candy's daughter Tori to play with our niece on Steven's side, Kora. They had a great time together, but I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the two. Visually they are completely different, but their personalities couldn't be more similar.


We had such a fun time with all the family here! I noticed after I uploaded all my pictures that I don't have any of the Brousseau's. The house was so crazy that I didn't get any taken. But just imagine them in spirit...

We were so excited to go see Tim in his role of "Team Manager" for the NIC basketball team. Way to go Tim!

Line wasn't feeling the greatest at the game, she fell asleep on Uncle Steve's arm.

Sammy had a really full day. Look at that face....


Crazed children...


A few days later...the Maile girls did the hula for a few of us...


Uncle Tyler came over and helped with reading duty. So nice to have him over...(hint hint Tyler.) Reading time was so much fun, and quiet...



I hope that this was what you were hoping for Jackie! We love and miss you guys.

This weekend was so fun! Thank you Matt and Dana for raising a son that gave us a spritual reason to all gather and celebrate. And thank you Maile's and Brousseau's for driving all the way here. And Jackie, Connie, and Ginny... we missed you.

Great post Cassie, the Toopster looks great and had the time of his life, and Rori will never be the same.
