Hampton's Baptism

Oh what a wonderful weekend in Chicago...the weather was outstanding and Hampton is better...what a sweetheart...he is a happy, happy boy. He laughs all the time...and just entertained us all weekend. We had a great time with mom...everyone kept saying "Are you sure your mom is 85?" What a trooper...she didn't miss a thing...for a woman that said she wasn't traveling any more she was something else. We left our house at 6:30 Saturday morning...got into Chicago around 10:15...Josh picked us up and drove us all around the city so mom could see the highlights...we went to lunch at Potbelly...YUMMY! Went to their condo for the rest of the afternoon...at 5 we went on the Architectural boat tour up the river for about an hour. Josh took Andy and Mom to his office building and up to the 72nd floor so she could see the whole city...back to the kids for Giordono's pizza and then to the hotel at 9:30...she didn't miss a thing.
While we were at the kids in the afternoon we tried on Hampton's Baptism outfit...we had such fun
 

Sunday morning at 11 was church...Josh, Katie and Hampton
 

Our family...mom hates to have her picture taken...but she was a good sport.
 

Sunday afternoon...Grandy and Hampton having some fun.
 

I am such a lucky girl...wonderful, wonderful family and lots of good friends.

I finished section 4 of Hometown Christmas today and I thought it was here...oh I'm so confused...you all will figure it out :)

Hampton is growing like a dandelion (not a weed - LOL). He's truly adorable!

OMG is that a photo of YOU Ethel?? Finally??? Aren't you a cutie? I love your hair!!! I've been growing mine out and am about to chop it off. And that Hampton. What a cutie pie he is. I could just squeeze him. Your whole family is adorable. I know you hated leaving Hampton. How do you do it living so far away?
