Shaunee's Baptism

Shaunee was baptized by her Dad on September 18th 2010. She was supposed to be baptized at the church in Almo, but our bishop didn't have the right keeps to open the baptismal font and so we had to go up the road the hot springs. This will be something that Shaunee will always remember, and having to be baptized twice. What a wonderful experience for a parent to watch their child enter the waters of baptism.

Oh How I Miss You!

I really enjoy bloggin'. When I first started I was so excited and couldn't wait to blog and post pictures to let friends and family who we didn't get see all time see what the Barrow bunch had been up to. When we moved to TN I wanted and hoped to blog dailey, so that our very missed family and friends could see us and not miss us so much. Well our internet connection where we live is a big piece of garbage. I haven't blogged for a while because it takes forever for pictures to load, etc. I am really going to try, even if I have to go to the library.
Bloggin', oh how I miss you!!!!!!!

(I have tried twice now to upload to dinky pictures, UUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHH!)

Going Home!

A couple of months before Braxton was born, I found this cute little froggy outfit at Target. I instantly feel in love with it and had to have it to match his froggy blanket that I had made him. Of course the only one they had left was newborn size. I hesitated on whither or not to buy it, as none have my kids have been small. I figured at least he would get to wear it coming home, and maybe a few weeks after that. Never would I have guessed that he would be SOOOOO BIG. 11 lbs 4 0z and 22"long or at least that is all their measuring device went up to. After he was weighed, they commented that I had better have not brought new born clothes for him to go home in. HEHE

The doctor said, look at the cheeks on that boy, and that we better give him the car keys and let him drive home.Boy he was mad when he came into this world. With just his out he was screaming his head off, and he peed on 2 nurses. That's my boy!

Oh Christmas Trees!!!!!!!!!

Tonight we went to the gentleman's house that Joe works with. Every year at Christmas time he decks his house out with Christmas trees. There were 35 Christmas trees, and 10 trains. One tree was 7 1/2 ft tall and had over 5,500 lights. These trees were beautiful and you could tell that he took hours to decorate one tree. In one bathroom there was a frog tree and when you sat down on the toilet, there were frogs that would sing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas." In another bathroom there were Elvis trees. The pictures don't do justice, as all we had was a cell phone, but it gives you an idea. It was tons of fun.
