Harry's Blessing & Father's Day

Harold Christian Robinson

We blessed little Harry last Sunday. It was also Caleb Hunter's Homecoming, and the Chapel was so packed they had to open both over-flows! Christian gave a beautiful blessing and Caleb gave such a sweet sincere talk from his mission. We were so worried about the weather. When we woke up, the sky was so dark and ominous, we thought for sure we'd all be stuck inside. However, when we walked outside after Sacrament Meeting, it was gorgeous outside! Thank Heavens!! Thanks to all who came - we enjoyed sharing this day with you!

Little Harry was exhausted from the day.

And of course it was Father's Day too. It was quite the feat to get Nathan to stop playing and take these pictures. Can you tell how excited he is?

Thanks to both of our Dads! We appreciate all the things you do for us!

Happy Father's Day to my Husband and Love! You do such much for our little family and are always so willing to do whatever crazy thing I come up with. I hope our boys grow up to be just like you!

I received some heart-breaking news today. A good friend - Misty from my old Ward passed away. She was 26 weeks pregnant with their first little baby boy.
On Saturday, she suffered from 3 pulmonary embolisms. She was in the ICU on life support, but had no brain activity. Yesterday they decided to take her off the life support and she passed away after a short time.

I don't know how long she and her husband (Jake) were trying to get pregnant, but I know it was several years. We served together in the Primary Presidency before I moved. She was such a fun and kind person. She had told me how much she wanted to be a Mom.

I look at my life, my family, especially my little Harry and wonder why things happen this way sometimes. I feel very undeserving of my many blessings. It reminds how quickly we can lose everything and how much I take for granted. I know there is peace in knowing about eternal families, but it doesn't lessen the pain and loss that Jake must be feeling. Misty expressed several times how much she loved Jake. He is such a wonderful man. My heart breaks for their little family.

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star, like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are, how fragile we are

Cannon Reunion

This is Sylvester's family. Christian's Grandma (Elinor) is one of the 2 girls on the back row. She's older, so that's why I think she's the taller one, but the other one looks more like her....I will have to find out!

Every June the descendants of the apostle, Sylvester Q. Cannon (son of George Q. Cannon) gather for a family reunion. The family tree goes down like this -

George Q & Elizabeth Cannon
Sylvester & Winnifred Cannon
Bill & Elinor (Cannon) Robinson
David & Jackie Robinson
Christian & Karen Robinson

It's always fun, even though I hardly know anyone. They always have great family stories to tell. Family History is very important to know and I really love learning it, so I enjoy it. Grandpa's just happy to have us there. Christian likes to run after Nathan and Grandma likes to hold Harry. We all have good times!!

Wait, What???

Last night, Dan and Heather had their little baby! A girl!! Brooklyn Marie. She is adorable. 8 pounds 10 ounces.

As we were leaving the hospital, I saw a row of the infant scales they use to measure the birth weight. I was curious about Harry's weight, so I turned one on and Christian placed him on the scale. I thought maybe he weighed 11 pounds....

13 pounds!!

I looked it up - he's above the 100 % for his age. My little (?) tank!
Here he is at 5 weeks....

Also he's lost all the hair on top of his head. He truly has Great Grandpa Skousen hair. We love it!!
