The much-anticipated weekend had finally come. The weekend we had talked about since Christmas - Granny and Papa were coming for Hopey's fourth birthday party!
Hope was trying out Uncle Ave's sleeping spot - on the floor of her bedroom! Luke's girlfriend, Pilar, and my Grandma came along with Mom, Dad, and the boys, so my brothers had to sleep on the floor as the bedroom guest spaces were given to the others. :o)

The birthday party crew!
Among Hope's gifts was this cool toy auger, and a John Deere front-end loader, complete with a hay bale! She thought it was great!!! So did I. :o)
Dear sweet Joy, she got the flu right after this, and was up late that night getting rid of everything in her little tummy. Thankfully, once she went to bed around 10:15 she was done with all that, and got up better in the morning, though it took half a day or so for her appetite to return.
Bedtime story with Papa.
The next day we had Philip dedicated at church, and it was so special to have family here with us for that significant event in our son's life. (Pictures may follow in a later post if I have time to figure out how to work with Luke's raw images. :o))
