a name & a blessing
jared blessed emery on sunday, january 6. he spoke such beautiful words--blessing her physical body, encouraging strength in Christ and a testimony of Him, talking about courage and gratitude, and the blessing of making and keeping covenants. it was truly so beautiful & the first time i've seen jared get choked up. with each day that passes i wonder how my heart can grow any bigger for this tiny person and her dad.
i can't believe how far some people traveled to be with us on this special day. jared's parents and some siblings from boise, grandparents and great aunt/uncle from pocatello, brother from rexburg and my family from utah county. i promise jared's family really was there. i know if i don't take pictures of my family, then there will be none. my mother-in-law on the other hand is fantastic with her camera. janeen, i need the pictures you took of the lishes.
after her blessing we had family over for brunch. we served mini quiche, ham & cheese sliders, mini bran muffins, watermelon/pineapple skewers, pecan diamond clusters, cookies and juice. props to my mom and gina in the kitchen! heaven knows i couldn't pull off that menu on my own.
ems, we love you!
