Want to know why I haven't posted much?

My 3 year old has discovered why mommy has an internet addiction. At least he understands my addiction now. Unlike my ability to understand why he has to be in a box when he plays.
Between my lack of computer time and being glued to the tv watching the financial markets about to implode............I've been unable to complete the multiple entries I've started. Maybe I'll put Erik on that for me. He seems to have the time.

Lauren's Baptism Day

Lauren was baptized on September 13th.

She had been looking forward to her special day for several months. She was mostly excited to receive the Holy Ghost so that she could feel the spirit. She picked out her new set of scriptures and we purchased her beautiful dress. I gave her a special crystal and pearl bracelet for her to remember her baptism day.

The day felt like a whirlwind and luckily, I didn't have time to ponder how old I feel to have a child old enough to be baptized. But I am. And she was beautiful. I know this is one of those days she will remember for the rest of her life.

Erik: Um......( then noticing the different options ) M and M's and VITAMINS!!!!! ( pointing to the gummy bears )

Dad: What?

Erik: YAY! M and M's and VITAMINS!!!!
