Blessing Day


Yesterday was so special. We blessed Daxton, and Shane gave him such a wonderful blessing.
Dax got a little fussy during it...but not too bad (I knew I should have sent the binky with him, as you can see from pictures, he is a binky baby!).

Kennedi got up and bore her testimony all by herself, and did such a good job.

Afterwards, we had a luncheon for all of our family and friends at the Salina senior center. Everything went great! Thank goodness my parents were there to help us, we couldn't have done it without them. We had about 40 people there. It was so nice of everyone who came.





Kennedi turns 5 years old on Wednesday, so we sang happy birthday to her and let her open some presents from our family.


(Shane's mom made her the cute outfit she is wearing)



When it was all over, we took these lovely family pictures (next time I'll remember to take them before all the chaos and clean-up).

Also want to throw in that we had Dax weighed last week, and at 6 1/2 weeks old, he weighed 7lbs 10oz, so he is still just a little guy!

He sure is cute! Love Kennedi's outfit! How much did you have to pay your family to pose for a picture? Jason looks pissed.

So cute! Looks like it all turned out really well. You look amazing. Kenna and Dax are too cute. I love the family pic of him with his mouth wide open. Cute cute. We want you to come and visit us asap!

Oh, he's precious! I wish Chase would take a binkie, but he's not interested. You look great, by the way!

oh soo sweet!!! Your family is soo cute! :) I can NOT believe how small Daxton is! He is still so small! We haven't officially weighed Coop since his 2 week check up, but we're guessing he's around 10 pounds! He's a tank...I'm so glad that he's healthy, but it also makes me sad that my little 6.5 pound baby is growing so fast! :) Hope that you guys are doing great! :)

The blessing was beautiful, it was great to see all your family there supporting you! I could relate with your testimony saying how long you waited for your little guy, brought tears to my eyes. He is beautiful!
