Taking a Breather has been NON-STOP here in the Johnson home, but I have decided it is important to take a breather, and do a little updating. Honestly, I can't even remember all the things that have gone on in the past month, but I have not forgotten what a wonderful time we had with my parents! What a special blessing to have them for a visit.

I think I had previously shared that we were also unable to see my parents when we went up to Washington, because my mom was also sick. What I don't think I shared is that my dad had already planned a trip to come down and visit just two weeks after we would have been up there visiting. Aaron and I, and I think even Mom were kind of wondering why Dad wanted to come visit so soon after our visit up north. Well, now we know why the Lord put it on my dad's heart to come down at that exact time!! Since we were not able to see them on our vacation, I was SO eager to have them come down.

It's such a joy to see them love our daughter and enjoy her almost as much as we do! ;) Linnea gave them lots of smiles! I don't remember everything we did together, although I can't forget that Dad won almost every game we played. He said he never wins when he plays with my sister's family, so I think he might come visit more often! :)

Mom, Kimiko (my sister-in-law), and I all went to the Ladies Fall Fellowship at our church where we had yummy food, dessert, wonderful fellowship, and heard the testimony of Barbara Cameron (Kirk Cameron's mom), which was a great blessing. We had a wonderful time just being together as a family and making some new memories. Love you mom and dad!

(This is the morning of Linnea's baby dedication)
Right now, Uncle Paul is here to visit, and next week, Uncle Andrew comes for a visit...yes, life is CRAZY busy, but full of much fun and joy! We are SO thankful for the blessing of family.

Don't worry, Linnea warmed right up to her after the initial moment :)

Papa meeting Linnea for the first time!

See....she LOVES her Grandma

And I love her too!!!
