We celebrated Annie’s first birthday a couple weeks ago and had a great time in Fargo with family. It is so fun to watch Lauren and Anne together- they entertained us all with the Busy Ball Popper (which I would highly recommend for a child’s birthday present) and enjoyed playing with Anne’s new Dora kitchen.

    Yes, Lauren, your baptism was one for ALL of us to remember as “The Little House on the (Eden) Prairie” baptism!! Our precious “little lamb” you were . . . and what a wonderful video for you to watch someday!
    Steph and Josh, you both were so “cool” (HA!) even tho things got kind of crazy! (Could Manda use an iron as a house-warming gift???) And what a fantastic meal, Josh! Only you could pull that off and keep your sense of humor, too!
    Thanks for all the wonderful pictures and the memories of our little Lauren, Child of God, and such a miracle to all of us! Love, Grandma Mary and Grandpa Nick
