Blessing Day

In our church, babies are normally blessed with a name just after being born.
We are far from "normal," so Finn was blessed after his first birthday.

My grandfather gave him a beautiful blessing, just like he did for Mya.

We must like stress, because we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for family pictures.
The little ones were not pleased.


Through the power of bribery and Photoshop, I got some decent pictures.


My sweet family.

They also blessed their new baby that day.
I love little Lindsey.

My mother.
She is such a proud grandma.
Look at her all puffed up like a peacock.
(at this point Finn was no longer interested in pictures)

All the children were having emotional breakdowns.
Everyone was hungry. Kids were taking off shoes. Some frolicked off into the bushes.

I turned my attention to the adults.

My grandparents.
The cutest couple I have ever met.
Their love could move mountains.

Much stress and craziness, but we finished!

Worth it.
