A busy weekend!

This little girl above had a birthday last month.
She is one of my "middle" children. 
I love this girl.
Her delivery was the most painful of all my children, I think directly after she was born I was actually suffering from shock. See, I wouldn't listen to anyone and ended up delivering her standing at the foot of the bed. In the process, I separated the cartilage from the bone that is in the front of your pelvis. I didn't realize it until the next day when I tried to get up. I was so painful I can't even tell you.
She was my first baby I "bonded" with immediately. It usually takes me a day or so to realize this baby is mine and that it is staying here! 
When I looked at her I was in love instantly! 
She is super smart and the most laid back of all my kids. 
Happy Birthday!

This weekend, she was baptized. 

We baptize when children are 8, we believe they are then able to be accountable and know right from wrong. 
When my kids turn 8 my super talented sister Anna draws them a portrait. You can see Paige's in the background. It turned out gorgeous! I will have to take pictures off all the ones she has done so you can see them. We had a beautiful day and ate TONS of food! I am still stuffed!
Stay tuned and I'll post recipes!
