St. Patrick's Day and a Baby Blessing

Last Sunday was St. Patrick's Day. We were all planning what green to wear when we remembered that it was Clark and Megan's new baby's blessing! So the day before we went out to the mall and picked up ties for Kollin and Tanner that had green in them.
We were pretty worried how Tanner would handle sitting through Sacrament meeting since we had never taken him to church before. I was hoping he'd do well since it was pretty much a practice run for when we start to go back to church someday.

I am happy and proud to say that he surprised us! There were some little outbursts, like when he would practically yell "uh-oh" if he dropped something. But there were not meltdowns or anything. It was such a relief.

After the blessing we went to Megan's parents' house for lunch. Grandpa had brought Grandma of the Great as well as he walker.
Tanner loved to push the walker around and thought it was pretty cool to use it as a seat.

At least it was a good picture of Kollin and me.
Caught him with his eyes open!
Beautiful baby Isabel Alice. She has got the most scrumptious cheeks!
It was very nice to be able to see family and friends and get to visit. I think Tanner's favorite part of the entire thing was the train track table they had downstairs for their grandkids. 

They also had an old Super Nintendo down there. Some of the kids were playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I realized it was the same game my siblings and I used to play when we were younger!

Later on when we were getting ready to leave, Kollin went down to get Tanner and saw the game. I don't remember exactly what happened, but he ended up playing the game with Tanner. Tanner of course got bored with it and took off. Clark came down to check on Andrew and he started to play as well! They were probably playing it for another hour or so. Both Megan and I thought it was just too funny since neither of them ever play video games!

At least it gave me time to steal the baby and snuggle her for a while since most of the other guests had gone that were taken turns holding her.

P.S. I didn't think to take any pictures while we were there, so all the credit goes to Grandpa Cannon and Annie (Megan's sister) for taking all of the pictures but the first one.
