BLESSINGToday was such a special day. We had the opportunity to bless sweet Mia and Bryan gave her such a beautiful blessing. It was such a spiritual experience. It seems just like yesterday that we blessed Kate. We chose to have Mia wear the same dress as Kate, which was a little big on her, but I thought she looked adorable in it. Seeing her in it brought such a sweet reminder of that special day back in December 2006 when we blessed Kate. We tried to keep such a sense of normalcy with Kate, while still being very cautious of her health. We debated back and forth whether we should just bless Kate at home, but we chose to bless her at church and I'm so glad we did. I love having these small reminders, as it brings so much comfort. After the blessing our families came to the house for a little brunch. Here are some pictures of this special day.
BABY SHOWERYesterday we threw my best friend, Treo, a baby shower. It was so much fun and she got some really great stuff. She is due July 4th, but because of high blood pressure, she may be induced as early as June 20th. I am so excited for her and she is going to be such a great mommy. We had so much fun planning and putting on the shower. Here is my first attempt at making a diaper cake. I must admit that it turned out better than I thought it would :)
BIRTHDAYLater that night, my family all got together at Buck & Kirstin's house for my Dad's birthday. We grubbed on Kirstin's fabulous ribs and dutch oven chicken & rice....Mmmmm! Happy Birthday, Dad (tomorrow)! We love you!
