I was looking through some old pictures and I came across these that I had meant to share with a friend back when it happened. :)
Here's the story...When Mercy was a couple days old I needed to do something so I went and made sure to lay her somewhere safe, i.e. her bassinet, instead of on the bed where she could easily be "held". ;) Then a few minutes later I walked down the hallway to go to the children's room and as I passed my room I glanced through the doorway, I quickly did a double take since all I could see was these legs sticking out of the bassinet! As you can see below Charis had sought out the baby and decided she would like to lay beside her in the bassinet. :) Mercy wasn't bothered by it at all but from then on we made sure to be a little more careful and let the children know that they were really too big for the bassinet! ;)
You really think I'm too big???
I just thought she looked lonely... :)

with the beautiful roses
a keepsake figurine for them, the plaque engraved at the bottom says,
they were very surprised as we turned our annual Thanksgiving Fellowship dinner into the special time for them
the newlyweds with (I believe) Brother Chris' mother and Sister Judy's parents
2 of Brother Chris' sisters were in town for a surprise 50th that the Pappas' sons had thrown for them the day before. It was a blessing to have them there as well.

C ~ "Mommy, the baby came out of your belly?"
J ~ "Yes Charis, she did."
C ~ "Are there any more babies in your belly?"
J ~ "No, not right now there aren't. Maybe later."
C ~ "Maybe later we have a new baby?"
J ~ "Yes Charis, maybe later. Would you like a new baby?"
C ~ "No, I'd like a new bed." :)
Which being interpreted is a couple of weeks ago we rearranged the children's room and I told Charis that when Mercy moved into her crib she would move into the trundle under Caleb's bed. So in the 2 year olds mind a new baby = a new bed since that is what she would get and that is what she seems to be interested in. ;)
