So much to tell you!

In the last two weeks, the Dawsons have been rockin' and rollin' (not just because Micah sleeps in a Rock-n-Play)...
  • We had our first Domestic Church family retreat in St Francisville- 18 families- which added up to about 40ish kids- 4 days, talks, family time, Mass, playing, praying... all done with our families! (I don't have any pictures of this yet)
  • The Green's came in town from Denver, and we were all together for a week. We met Isabelle and the Green's met Micah. That makes 7 grandchildren 6 and under at my parents.
  • We had our first professional pictures taken with the Darbonne's, Green's, and Dawson's
  • Micah was baptized!! A new child of God, Claimed for Christ! This Sacrament is so incredible- what a gift to witness it!
  • Micah reaches 4 weeks old tomorrow... it's big deal!!
So here are some shots from those things:

Mom and Dad will celebrate their 40th anniversary later this month, and love to celebrate with cake!!

Madeline loves her Uncle Joseph
 Isabelle Reese... or Baby Belle as Daddy calls her. Just over 3 months old. I am so in love!
 Anna Kate (4) and Therese (3) are truly 2 peas in a pod! They walked everywhere holding hands. They took their naps together. They're sneaky together. So precious!
 Madeline (6) and John Paul (almost 5)
 She read lots of books to him.
 Isabelle and Micah are 10 weeks apart. Apparently it's merely a difference between size of cheeks.

 Meal time... where nothing was eaten because they were visiting.
 Jacob (20 months) "Cheese"

 Maria Lewis (of Lewisland) took our family pictures...

 And a few extras...

 Joseph and Dominique (his precious girlfriend) ... two peas in a pod.
 Oh and here's our family picture
 And our sweet little Micah Philip was baptized on Sunday (his godparents are dear friends of our Denis and Linda Husers). After we finished this part, Therese said, "Ok, it's my turn now!" I then informed her that she was already baptized.

 What a special day!

And now I need a nap...

Some old photos you will certainly enjoy!

David somehow retrieved pictures off my old computer I used from graduate school up until we moved to Lake Charles (so 2006 - 2009). Enjoy...

 Minutes before our wedding. Sarah is holding Madeline (4 months)
 Madeline (15 months) meeting John Paul for the first time
And in celebration of Micah's upcoming baptism, here is a picture of John Paul's baptism...
And Therese Marie...
And like most things associated with Jacob that I cannot seem to get to/find... I cannot locate a picture from his baptism, and Micah is crying. Jacob you are loved and appreciated... just not in this post.
