The weekend was so relaxing, just what we needed! I realized when we arrived to Jeremiah's parent's home that Jeremiah and I hadn't been there as a "married" couple before...what a thrill! We got to sleep in the same room this time!! It was extra meaningful as this was our first time as a family and Jeremiah's first time back to his hometown in 1 1/2 years. We had delicious meals, wonderful conversations and saw lots of family!
I think the most meaningful time was on Sunday, when both Grandma's (Great-Grandma's to Ethan) came over for ice cream and brownies! To see 2 sets of 2 generations in the same room was just so precious and priceless. It was a little sad for me since both sets of my grandparents are with the Lord. I wish they could have known Ethan and loved on him, they would just be in awe of him. I am thankful for Grandma Carlson and Grandma Kline, that they could see Ethan, hold and love on him. I will post some precious (I keep using this word, but I guarantee you this is the ONLY word that described that time!) photos of this weekend when I've got more time. To make it even more special, Feb.22, Sunday is a very special and emotional day for the Carlson family. Jeremiah's grandfather (Grandma Carlson's husband) had passed away 5 years ago. Just being together on that day was quite special! ( On a side note, Jailyn, a cousin of Jeremiah's, gave birth to a baby girl on Sunday!) New Life!! God truly works and is and cares about every detail of our lives, even the day we are born.
