Back to Buffalo continued

Gramma and Charlotte on Blessing Day.

The Maid of the Mist was amazing. Adie says, "I not want to get wet, I not going" But she was okay as long as grandma held her.

Darling Baby Lottie

The Nielsen family on Blessing Day.

We went to Palmyra to the Hill Cumorah Pageant. It was pretty spectacular.

Bonnie, Back to Buffalo for a Blessing

We went to the Smith Farm and the Sacred Grove. Adie was walking around with her arms folded. I asked her, "Why?" She said it was a special place.

Grandpa's first time holding Baby Charlotte. I need to get out my pictures. I think she looks like me.

Love in Oregon

We spent a few days at the coast when Sarah and the kids got here. It was a lot of fun. I love the beach.

Andy sporting his new buzz.

Ali and I found a huge star fish when we walked at Agate Beach.

Happy Boy! Laughing at Ali's attempt at magic.

Ali practising her Harry Potter Spells on a balloon. "Wingardium Leviosa"

More from Herriman

Gramma and the boys. Four boys. It's so fun. I had to take a picture of Lincon with one sock on because this is hereditary. Grandpa Mike does this also.

Off to Herriman (It's near West Jordan)

Levi Ezra had a tough time getting here but is here and it very loved.Georgia came and had a sleepover with us and she loved holding her cousin.

Ali enjoyed holding him. I didn't get a picture of Andy with him but he chatted with him a while and was very interested in him. Sarah had to remind him to be gentle. Maybe they hung out together in the pre-existance.

Grant was always snuggling his little bro. The minute he got home from school that was the first thing he wanted to do. This was my first time I had to fight for a chance to hold the baby.

Here's Theron hanging out with his brother after school.

Are these two brothers? Lincon was all over "Levi Ezra" . You have to use both names or Lincon corrected you.

Two Weeks of Free Play

I had so much fun with the kids and Melissa and Eric. We played outside when it wasn't raining. I brought some of Melissa's old dolls and doll clothes. Adie carried them with her everywhere.

It was fun to watch them play and see their personalities. Adie would ride the rocking horse like a crazy woman. That girl has no fear, and maybe no feeling. She get's hurt alot and seems to only cry when her feelings are hurt.

Porter is a little more careful about things except the slide. Apparently it's fun to go down head first upside down. Or maybe it's fun to see what Gramma's reaction is.

Adie doesn't like her hair fixed because she gets tangles. So I gave her "Punzel Braids". She loves Rapunzel and the movie Tangled. Porter likes to be Flynn Rider. Great, I was stuck with mother Gothel or Maximus the horse.

Porter loves to help. He always is figuring things out and wants to help with everything. Here he is putting the bouncey seat together for Baby Lottie.

New York, here I come

Baby Charlotte arrived before I did. We went from the airport straight to the hospital to see this new little one.

Porter and Adelaide are so excited that baby Shawat is here. Look at all that hair. When it's wet it's a bit curly. When dry it's straight as a rod.

All are excited to have mom and baby home.

I made scrubs for Porter and Adie. Porters are just like Dada's and he says he is going to wear them to school. (That's what dada does)

Adies are her favorite color, purple (although she told me in July that her favorite color is now pink)
