Bonfire Season and Themed Parties!

As summer ended the beginning of what I would like to call Bonfire Season has begun!  At least weekly we have a bonfire and smores and lots of fun.  We love setting it up in the front yard and watching as many people come over to hang out and just chill.  Our neighbors are some of the best and we all enjoy being outside and the kids running around and all get along (minus those little meltdowns that inevitable with over 10 kids under 10)!
Oh and it was also the start of the season of themed parties where we regularly got to dress us.

Molly's Baptism

Last month Molly gave her life to Jesus and asked to get baptized. 
One night after story time and prayers she looked up to Jon and said I would like to follow Jesus and also get baptized.  We talked with her about it for awhile and had her attend the baptism class at our chapel.  Since this was a big deal we told her she could invite whoever she wanted - knowing that people might not be able to come but we could at least ask.  All her grandparents got to come for this special day and everyone was excited to see them.  Everyone got to pick a grandparent for story time and no one had to share! That weekend we read books, played outside, went to the baptism and got to have a special lunch at her favorite restaurant!  Also we live near my Aunt and Uncle and she asked if they could come and they made the drive up to base that morning to be in our chapel service to be with family.
