B L E S S I N G

This Sunday we blessed our Ella-girl.
Here's Ella on her special day. I LOVE how she kept holding her dress and rubbing it in her hands. My mom made the comment that she thought Ella "felt pretty". I really think she did! She seemed to know she was all dressed up. Isaac kept calling her a princess.
I'm happy that once again, my parents made the effort to come be with us. It was a special day.

{if you're not LDS and wondering what a blessing is: We don't baptize our kids as babies, we wait until they are 8 when they can make the choice for themselves and be held accountable to keep the commandments. As babies our kids are given a special priesthood blessing; a prayer just for them}

Beautiful! The black and white one looks like she's wearing lip gloss. :) I'm sad we couldn't make it up to see her. Stupid work. Oh well, at least we got to see her last week. One of these days we'll make it up there when we're done with school though.
