Lauren's Blessing Day




What a beautiful day! We were so excited to have Dan bless Lauren at church yesterday. Dan's parents and sisters had been in Texas for the blessings of Graham and Greg so it was extra special to have them there with us. Dan gave a really nice blessing - the only tricky part of the day was changing her into her blessing gown in a hurry in the car, I didn't want it to get all wrinkled bunched up in her car seat.
We had about 45 close friends and family over for lunch afterwards and Lauren was smiling and so awake all morning. She looked so sweet in her dress too - I'm getting professional pictures of her in that next week. Thank you to everyone who helped to make it such a special day!

You have a beautiful family! I can't believe how fast time has passed. We'll have to get together this summer. I will be out there with the kids for a couple of months.
Take care!!!
