Kate's Blessing

We were so lucky to have so much family here for Kate's baby blessing last weekend. My sister had her baby boy blessed the same day and my nephew was baptised the day before so it was a little hectic, but mostly just really great. We blessed Kate in the singles ward where Aaron is serving...which was obviously out of the ordinary, but it just made it even more special for us. Aaron gave her a beautiful blessing. Kate was grumpy in the morning, but was really good when it counted during church and afterwards at the family dinner. She is three months old now and is cooing and smiling a lot. We are so grateful for all the family and friends that came to support Kate on her special day.
LOVE this picture.
Jaxson is saying "Cheese!" like his life depends on it, and Finn is looking at him like he is crazy.
Most of Aaron's side of the fam that came for the blessing.
Kate and McCoy...cousins blessed on the same day!

Wow what a fun and memorable event! That's so fun that your sister's boy had a blessing on the same day!! Makes the process a little easier for the rest of the family I guess. She's a doll....glad to finally see her out and about with no cords or machines. Darling family...seriously.
