Umbrella Madness and Supreme Sadness

Posted by Jamie

Auntie Theresa gave Marvin a cream umbrella when we were waiting for pictures to be taken outside the temple and he was in heaven.  He ran around with it, poked people with it, and looked really cute with it.  I had no idea how we would take it away with out a big fit but eventually he saw Auntie Theresa with a rose and traded her the umbrella for the rose.  Who would have thought a little boy would prefer a rose to an umbrella!

Later that evening Uncle Randy was MCing Erin's family dinner and Marvin really wanted his microphone.  Auntie Theresa turned it off and handed it to Marvin. Much to her surprise he turned it  and said something.  Theresa quickly took it away and turned it off.  Marvin gave her the saddest look I or she had ever seen so she quickly gave it back to him before he started to cry.  The previous scene happened over again accept this time after he returned the microphone to him a very sad boy came running to me.  He gave me the microphone then sat sadly on my lap for at least 15 minutes.  I'm not sure if Theresa taking the microphone away or the sound of his amplified voice made him so sad or maybe it was the combination of the two.  Anyhow I have never seen Marvin so genuinely sad before.  It was the funniest thing!  He sure know how to pout his lower lip.Marvin and the umbrella 1Marvin and the umbrella 2

Pretty Boys!

Posted by Jamie

I have always know that Marvin was a pretty boy his eye lashes are stunning and even when he is wear all blue strangers occasionally think he's a girl.  This week end while Lilia was trying on her flower girl dress Marvin wanted to wear a necklace and a rose clip in his hair.  He looked so beautiful I couldn't believe it!  Today when I was changing charlie I took off his blue sleeper and he was wearing a green undershirt with a crocheted frill on the edges and he looked like a beautiful little girl too.  What can I say Nathan and I make pretty boys!

Slide Show

Posted by Jamie

On Saturday we watched my sister Erin get sealed to Scott Bissett we enjoyed sharing that experience with them.  We watched her walk out of the temple and get a few picture taken outside.  She looked beautiful like the perfect bride.  That evening while enjoying a family dinner my Mother had prepared we watched a slide show of Erin and Scott.  As I saw pictures of my baby sister it finally hit me that she was married and I almost cried.  I'm not sure why I know that marriage is a wonderful thing and I'm happy for her I guess I was just sad to see single Erin end or maybe baby sisters are never suppose to get married.
