Mom, Dad, and Makenna...I look like I'm about to do a little dance...scary thought!

Makenna getting ready to leave for Church

Makenna all dressed up with somewhere to go!

Fresh from her bath, Makenna is starting to gain some poundage!

Today was one of those days I want to record and remember in my dwindling memory! Motherhood does that, I have decided. I slept about an hour and a half last night and had to get the troops ready for church this morning. Thank heavens for Dad who helped run some interference and look for things I have misplaced. Never did find the cute little white shoes...oh, well. The dress Makenna is wearing is about 41 years old. It is the dress I was blessed in when I was a baby. After we take a trip to JCPenney's for pictures, we are going to retire it to a picture frame (shadow box type I am picturing). Maybe if it is in good enough shape when Makenna has a daughter, she can take it out and use it for her. I have to check around and see what all is involved in the process. The dress looked beautiful on her and was exactly what I was hoping to find when I shopped for one. Got to save some money and make a little family history at the same time. I got all choked up when I got her dressed and everything fit. I want to get a picture with me and Makenna with my mom. Maybe Grandma will have to go to JCP with us! Hmmm...

The Parry family is pretty awesome. I've known them for 12-13 years I guess. Doug Sr baptized ATC when he turned 8. I guess we have kind of adopted he and his sons for blessings and ordinances. Janie is incredible. She has been through a lot but she is one of the funniest people I know. Many thanks to them for their kindness and support.
