Trip to West Virginia

The day after Josh's blessing we received word that my sweet amazing grandfather passed away.  So that following Friday, Katie Heather and I made the trip back to West Virginia for the funeral.  We took a red eye out from SLC, to NYC then from NYC to Pittsburgh.  It was a long trip, but the kids all did great!  Josh slept through the whole trip for the most part.

Cousin Megs

Josh's favorite spot was on the front porch swing watching the neighborhood.

It was so great to be back home at Nana's with all the family together.  You never realize how much you miss people till you see them again.  Mom got to have her all her kids together to help say "see you later" to Pop.  The services were so sweet.  My Pop was such a strong and giving man who influenced many lives in his little neck of the woods.  After the services we gathered at the ward building to share fun and sweet memories of Pop. I loved it.  For a much better tribute  click here.

Josh's Baby Blessing

We had a wonderful day for Josh's baby blessing, although we did miss our family that couldn't make it.  Before church we blessed  Rocco at the house.  Ricky did such a great job with the blessing, although I swear the minute that Ricky started to pronounce the blessing every baby in the chapel started to cry and so it was a little hard to hear the blessing.....Didn't they realize that I've waited years to hear my sweet child being blessed by his father?  Nevertheless, Ricky did great he blessed Josh with Knowledge and Strength, to seek out the truth and live it.  I love watching Ricky take care of Josh and raise him to be a strong and capable man.  If Josh ends up being just like his father I won't mind at all.  Ricky is an amazing man!  Here are some pictures from the day.
