Blake's Blessing

Click on image to view larger



While we were in Utah, we had to opportunity to bless Blake at church in my parent's ward. I am so happy that we were able to come and have our family all around us on this special day. It is truly one of the highlights of being a mother to see your child surrounded by good, strong, faithful men who are and will continue to be great examples for my son to look to as he grows. Rusty's blessing was beautiful, and I feel so blessed to be the Mother to this very special little boy. Although, since church began at 9am, I was having a minor heart attack as everyone was running into the meeting just in the nick of time!



After the blessing we had a brunch at my parent's house. They just remodeled the whole upstairs and it looks so great. Sharon and my Mom were making fun of my zeal to prepare all the food the day before instead of just stopping by Costco or Kneaders to buy what we needed. But I held fast, and we had a few intense cooking hours, which I think really paid off. Everything was so yummy and it was nice to be able to sit and visit with friends and family that we don't get to see often enough! All in all, it was a perfect day. Thank you so much to everyone who participated!

I'm so glad to see pictures!!! He is soooo cute! I can't believe how big Josh looks sitting next to Blake. They grow up way to fast. It looks like it turned out great! I'm glad you got to go home and be around your families for such a special event. Congrats little Blake!

For me it was a perfect day also. To have my family all there together for the blessing was great. The food was superb, the weather was as good as you could get and the company was the best. I'm glad I was able to take a lot of your pics for the blog. I am so proud of your little family and you and Rusty as parents. Keep up the good work! Next time stay longer!!!
