Baby Blessing

We finally blessed Halle last Sunday. Not yesterday, the one before, yes when we had the huge storm! We did it at our house, and just invited family. I want to thank everyone for coming and daring the weather. It was so snowy our ward almost canceled church!

I also want to thank Denille, Russ's mom, for making Halle's beautiful blessing dress. It was absolutely gorgeous! Even down to the lace trim on the slip! Denille you are amazing! Thanks to everyone for bringing food, chairs, treats, but mostly for bringing yourself.

Russ did an awesome job! The blessing was very touching, and the words that stand out to me are, "peace, joy and goodness." He is a great Dad, and Halle and I are very lucky to have him in our lives! Anyway it was so fun to have everyone over, here are some pictures.





p.s. Halle was so tired, she didn't make a peep during the blessing, but afterward she cried the whole time. :(

She looks adorable. I can't believe how fast she is growing up. I love her dress. Aunt Denille is an amazing seamstress. Glad you had a great day!!! Go Halle!!
