Blessing Day

Yesterday was Averie's blessing day. It was the perfect day. The weather was amazing, and we had such a wonderful turn out for her special day. We feel so loved to have such supportive family and friends. Thank you to everyone who came. Averie looked so beautiful in her dress. Can you believe I actually caught her smiling?


However, this was her face for the majority of the day:I don't think that she liked being all dressed up. With all the ruffles and the tights, who can blame her? It didn't help that it was really hot too. As soon as we got home we stripped her down to something more comfortable. Here is a pic of our little family of three. Ignore my cheesey grin.

After sacrament meeting we all headed over to the park for some good eating. I think that it turned out pretty good. I was a little bit of a basket case. I realized how much I HATE being in charge. I guess the days of just showing up to a get together are over now that I am the parent. We had so much fun though. We had some good food followed by some bad mitten, croquet and lasso golf. Thanks again to all those that came and brought food. We love you all!
Here are the two babes. Caleb is growing, but Averie is still double his size. They were so pooped from being passed around all day.Some more eye candy just in case you forgot how precious she is! My little chunker girl.Oh and one more random piece of advice. If you have a bag of grass seed, make sure you close the bag when you are finished. I came accross this growing in the bag and I laughed for about five minutes straight.

Kellie she is beautiful. Isn't it funny that we thought we might be bored on maternity leave? There is still so much I want to do that I haven't got around to yet.
