a blessing

yesterday was the fourth time i have sat and watched my husband give our child a name and a blessing in our church.  this is the first ordinance of our religion before baptism at 8 years of age.

it is a special day for us. which also means, it is a stressful day.

i really tried to stay relaxed and just enjoy all of our family and friends. but i find myself, like every other woman, wanting everything to be perfect. the kids, the clothes, their hair, family, everything. which just turns me into a mess.

luckily, ty doesn't get phased out and stressed like me, and he calmly blessed our son with obedience and faith. what more could i ask for?

we had a wonderful day full of family, friends, and food. a perfectly mormon sunday.

I saw Rodney in his blessing out fit and thought, "oh, she should have put a bow in her hair..." Totally didn't even think for a second that there isn't supposed to be a bow!! I guess I'm used to everybody having girls!! :)

PS LOVE the overon chapel. I miss it!
