Little White Dress

We had the opportunity to give this sweet little girl a name and a blessing on Saturday. Due to family traveling schedules we held the blessing at our home, which turned out great. Most of our family and friends were able to attend, which we are very grateful for, and we missed those that could not be there. Clinton gave a beautiful blessing, that was truly inspired by the Spirit. I am so thankful to have the Priesthood in our home, and to have a husband worthy to use it.

I think what has made my girl's blessing even more special is that both of them have worn the same dress that I wore for my blessing. My mom kept mine and gave it to me during one of Bailey's shower, and I am so glad she did. I love that this little white dress can be passed down generation to generation.

Our Little White Dress

I love my girls SO much, and am so thankful everyday that Heavenly Father has trusted me with these choice Spirits. The Spirit I felt this weekend reminded me of just how sacred parenthood is, and how these girls are relying on us to lead them home again. I pray that I may do my best to lead them and guide them with both hands holding fast to the iron rod. We love you Reagan and are so blessed to have you in our family!

You know you live in AZ when...

you're swimming on September 28th!

The girls and I met up with Kristy & the boys, and we headed down to the pool to try to cool off! This was Reagans first trip to the pool and although she was dressed for the occasion she didn't actually get in the water...sleep was more important. After swimming we headed back to the house to relax and watch Peter Pan. I guess the morning was a little too much for Bailey, because after about 30 minutes of the movie this is what I found...

Here's to the end of summer (hopefully), bring on fall!
