Saturday was a very special day. First of all, these two happy people were wed:
(Jana is Kyle’s cousin)
First, there’s Aunt Virginia Bishop. She was married to Iva Lee’s brother, Walton. From the stories I’ve heard, Iva Lee & Gordon and Virginia & Walton were very close. They went camping together often and were all very close. (I’m sure John or Kyle or someone in the family could tell more interesting stories, but … I’m still learning!) 😀
And Chloe and Salome Bishop — sisters and Iva Lee’s double first cousins. (They are the ladies who made the stuffed dog for Ivalee that’s in her crib, pictured here.) And it was almost dinnertime. She didn’t cry the whole time they held her! Promise! 😀
All three ladies were so thrilled to get a chance to love on our little one. And Chloe told me at one point while she was holding her, “This baby has made a lot of people very happy. Especially me!”
Jana does a great job of illustrating almost everyone’s first reaction to seeing her: touching the hair. Though I understand, after this weekend, she shouldn’t be surprised by it. Apparently that’s a Bishop family trait!
