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!
