Bri and I get up Sunday morning and
throw our two girls in the car and drive to Columbia.
When we arrive, the girls look like two little monkeys. Still in their jammies. Hair crazy. So, we pull into the church parking lot and there is Luke, Julie, Mom just getting out of their car.
I don't know if I even said Hello.
Just, "Help me get the girls ready!"
We have (maybe) 1 minute 30 seconds to get them dressed and make it in time to see Ashlyn get baptized.
Both Julie and Mom jump right in helping, dressing, diaper change, etc. It was mayhem. Tossing dresses across the car, brushing tangles, a few tears, matching up shoes...
A few zaney minutes and everyone is ready.
We are walking up to the church and I hear Brian laughingly say, under his breath to Julie, "If you'd only been 5 minutes early, you'd have missed that fiasco."
Old Fashioned look. LOVE THIS.
These are my mom and dad's 5 grandchildren. All 2 & under.
Maleah(2), Ashlyn(4mo), Carlisle(2), Evelyn(1), Foster(10mo)
Not only were all FIVE grandchildren sitting,
they were all happy,
no one was crying.
All were participating.
No one was running off.
Only if I had a picture of the 4 grandparents and 6 parents and the complete MAYHEM that was happening to make these pumpkins all look in the same direction.
My brother, sister and I are the ones all in a row.
