Caleb's Baptism

Caleb's baptism was last night. I am so proud of him. He was so quiet and thoughtful. Bobby was so proud to baptize. He also was able to confirm him a member of the church. Unfortunately my dad was unable to be there, but Caleb's Grammy gave a nice talk on baptism. She is so good with kids. Caleb really enjoyed that and she let Seth help her give her talk so he had a part too. He was baptized along with two other children from the ward so there were a lot of people there. So many in fact that we had to meet in the chapel. I am so excited to see Caleb move on to another stage in his life. He is growing so fast and is such a pleasant bright child. Bobby's blessing was beautiful and I hope Caleb remembers it like I will.

Ayden's First Shiner

Well, there it is, Ayden got his first black eye. I was not in the room but the story goes that Caleb and Seth were wrestling on the floor and Ayden tripped on Caleb's foot. Then somehow that led to heads colliding. Either way it turned into a bit of a shiner. Daddy was proud and called it the first of many. I guess if he plays baseball like Daddy wants him to then it probably won't be the last. I wouldn't say he 'took it like a man' but he recovered quickly and was back to playing with his brothers in a matter of minutes, no worse for the wear.

Christmas at Liz's Home

Liz invited us to spend Christmas with her and her family in Arlington. We were so excited; it would be our first, official road trip as a family! Bobby played with his work schedule a bit and we were able to drive up there on Christmas Eve and stay until the day after Christmas. Liz was a very gracious hostess. She had snacks and drinks ready to go for us. She made a huge breakfast the next morning and dinner that night. We had sub sandwiches in between - an Orr family tradition, according to Bobby. John has four Lhasa Apses and Liz has her huge mutt Foster. John's children brought their two dogs over too. Brooklyn loved playing with the dogs and the boys loved playing with John's son, Jesse. He was so sweet, he played so well with them. We really enjoyed ourselves on our mini vacation.
Brooklyn loved cuddling with the dogs.
Liz with the babies. We spent so much time just relaxing and visiting.
John with his sweet baby.
Bobby wrapped up like a taco. He was coming down with a bad cold so he lounged as much as possible.

I just realized I have no pictures of the boys! They spent the entire time with Jesse, we really barely saw them except when they got hungry. Ayden though had a blast. He played with the dogs, I wish I could've gotten some pictures. He thought they were great until Foster kept running into him!
Ayden really did do so well. I was worried that he would be fussy being away from home for so long. He played happily, napped well and even let Liz lay down with him at night. As always... he loves the cell phone!
