Grandma and Grandpa Orton

And because I always take too many pictures here are some more! The hawk is a crazy story. Everyone was just sitting in the living room when we heard a screech, looked over and the front door was open and there was a hawk sitting on the railing just looking in at everyone. By the time we got the camera out it had jumped over to the car, but yes this picture is taken from inside our house.. The rest of the pictures are some of the neighbors and friends that came to attend Naomi's blessing with us. We only had the people who traveled a bit come over after to eat because our house is too little and we don't get to see them as much as our other friends. We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many and such great people!

This is Raymond. He is just the cutest boy. He is our neighbor and he is mentally disabled. He is just the most innocent and loving boy, loving everyone he meets and always always always smiling unless his mp3 player is out of batteries, then he'll let you know. Sometimes I get to watch him if his parents have to work and he is so helpful in the kitchen. Well he was waiting all afternoon for his turn to hold Naomi. He waited and waited and waited patiently and kept reminding us that he would like a turn. He only signs he doesn't speak. Well when it was finally his turn, he was smiling so big I thought his face would bust in two. He did a really good job holding her and would talk to her in jibber jabber(he can't say real words). What a sweet boy. Everybody loves Raymond.

Hey Amie, I'm an old friend of Devin's and found your blog through Dan's page. I just wanted to tell you I think you do an awesome job with your photography! I wanted to ask you what program you use for editing. I have photoshop but am clueless about using it most of the time. Anyway, do you take pictures for fun and/or for a job? You have a darling little family!

Hi Amie! I don't mind at all that you add us to your blog. I am going to do the same! You do the cutest things with your pictures! You are very talented. I am so glad I've gotten to know you a little the past week, and I'm sure there will be many more days in the mother's lounge! :) You have a beautiful family.
