Blessing Day

Today was a very special day for our family. In our church babies are given a name and a blessing (kind of like a christening). This is done by their father or any other worthy Priesthood holder in their family or a close friend. Steve was able to perform E's blessing today and it was beautiful. We were so lucky to have so many in our family attend. We even had some friends drive up to be a part of our sacred day. Thanks to all who drove from all over Utah, Nevada, and Idaho to help us celebrate!!! I am so grateful to be a part of a church that celebrates the family and teaches that we can live eternally with our families. I am thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who provided a way in our Savior to be cleansed from our sins so this is possible!

What a special day. I'm so happy for you guys, and little E is just beautiful! I really want to come to Utah this summer, so hopefully I'll get to meet her soon!

We waited for Steve's brother who had been in Africa for 3 months. We really wanted to have him there.
