Graham's baby blessing
What a wonderful day. After a somewhat hectic week of getting ready for Dianna's wedding (post coming as soon as I get pictures from Veronica's camera--mine was dead...), we topped it off with another day of family for Graham's baby blessing.
Our family and friends came and filled up multiple pews in the church. I love our family and it was special for me to see everyone sitting there together. Charlie announcing "I've been crying all morning!" as he got out of the car. Diego exclaiming "Charlie! Charlie!" the minute he saw Charlie walk into the chapel. Grandkids climbing all over Grandma Chris. Taitum recognizing Richard up on the stand blessing the sacrament. My dad goofing around while singing hymns. Kitty discovering that Sutton was wearing a pair of Quincee's underwear around her waist like a belt. Serious entertainment.
And of course, Christian had the wonderful opportunity to bless Graham. A baby blessing in our church is a special occasion when a priesthood holder gives a new baby a name and a blessing. When the child is blessed, his name is added to the official records of the church and he is given a blessing to prepare him for a happy and healthy life. It was special to see Christian blessing our baby surrounded by loved ones. I am grateful for them and for the gospel.
A special thanks to our family and friends who shared this day with us.
We love our little Graham and we're grateful to have him as a part of our family.
