write her name in the sky.



Sunday was Margo's baby blessing. She looked so sweet in her white dress, and Clint gave her a really neat blessing. Amongst other things he blessed her that she would have an optimistic perspective and a happy disposition. I loved that, because what a difference those simple things make in a person's life! And it was a reminder to me that I need to do my part in teaching her to be happy.

Afterward we had a nice celebration at home with family (we love you all), delicious food (thanks to lots of help), and pretty flowers (my favorite kind). It was a beautiful day.

    1. her arms really are the best. they're so funny, because they are REALLY long, and somehow they're both chubby AND skinny at the same time.

  13. Sounds like a beautiful blessing. Optimism can you get through anything. It's so nice that God gives us little peaks of what our spirits were probably like before we ever came here.

  14. Look at those rolls on her arms - yay Margo!

    The blessing was beautiful. Oh wait, your church doesn't start at 2:30??? :(

  15. She doesn't look quite so Clint-y in these pictures to me. I think I'm starting to see a leeeetle bit of Angela? Maybe?

    Either way, the dress is darling and your pictures are gorgeous, as always.

  24. The dress really was perfect and Clint's blessing was really sweet (at least what I could hear when when Joseph wasn't squealing) even Russ commented on how good it was.
