Sleeping beauties

Misty and the kids came over for the afternoon. Natalie and Tinsley both played hard, and definitely needed their naps.

Dinner guests

Jonathan brought his new bride over last night for dinner. We had a great time. The kids nearly mauled them and tried to get their undivided attention.

Bye, Sister Flaucher

Sis. Flaucher has been here for a couple of weeks, visiting from Oregon.  We love her to pieces, and have had a wonderful visit. We were hoping we could kidnap her for good, but unfortunately, the time has come to say good-bye.
We can't wait until she can make it back up north again.  We are sure going to miss her!

Surprise Visitors

Some old family friends, Wayne and Randy Brown, surprised us all, and came to Minot to visit this weekend. Randy and Anthony were best friends, and grew up together in Alaska.  Randy amused the kids and played outside with them for a long time.
It's great to sit and listen to the many stories that are shared when Dad and Mom and the Browns get together.

Natalie was happy to pose while I was taking pictures.

Miss Germain gave me one of the watermelons that she grew in their garden, and it was one of the best I have ever eaten. Anthony agreed, though he didn't get much of it. I really like watermelon!!!

Rehearsal Dinner

On Thursday, we had the rehearsal for the wedding.  The dinner was held at Badlands.
I was in charge of taking the photos for the rehearsal and the 'Meet and Greet' on Friday night.  Here are just a few of the rehearsal dinner.
The beautiful couple.  Love them to pieces!

Talon and Kaitlyn's Baptism

Yesterday, Talon and Kaitlyn both received the Holy Ghost, and were baptized in Jesus' Name for the remission of their sins.  What an awesome day! I wish I could have gotten a picture of them praying, but there was too much excitement going on. I was given a few pictures of them getting baptized, though.
Papa Starr baptized Talon.
Kaitlyn really wanted her Daddy to baptize her, so he did.
All that excitement can wear on a person. Natalie was out cold by the end of service!
Acts 2:38-39
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call."
I'm so thankful for truth that we can pass down to the next generations!
