Blessing Day

Yesterday was the day that sweet little Parker was blessed.

Troy gave him a wonderful blessing and we had a wonderful turnout. I think I counted 42 at the BBQ afterwards and there were 29 on Troy's side and 13 on my side that weren't there! Thanks to all that came!

I was a little worried dressing him all in white because he didn't poop the day before so I was SO scared it would be before or during the blessing! But he was a good little guy and waited until he was out of his outfit and we were home! He just slept the entire time.

Taylor was so tired during these pictures! She came up to us BEGGING us to take her inside and let her take a nap!

My sister from Canada came into town and we had a full week of hanging out and even planned a day of kid-free shopping! It was wonderful!

We had a wonderful time hanging out with our families and coming together to bless our little boy, thanks again to all those that came!


We don't have any individual pictures of Parker in his outfit, I am planning on having Troy take some downstairs in the next couple days so stay tuned....

Oh Alisha, I really completley forgot that was last Sunday. We were there and I'm so so sad that I didn't come :0(. I'm so sorry! I was so close too...grrrr!!!! But, on a happy note, you all look so great and Parker is so so cute.
