We blessed Lindey on Sunday, June 26th, at 2:00pm at our home. No, it was not fast Sunday, but my parents had taken our 3 older children to a family reunion and would be bringing them back to us this weekend. So, to save them another trip, we decided to bless her then. We also didn't know when I would be feeling well enough to attend church, so we just decided to get it done and bless her in our home. She looked so pretty in her white dress. Must have been meant to be that I found this dress back in March and decided to get it without having John there. We usually shop for things like this together.
My mom brought Lindey one of her little braclets and my friend Danielle made the other one. They really helped dress her up! :) The white crocheted blanket is from my sweet friend Jenni's mom. Jenni told me that her Mom didn't know if anyone had made one for the baby to be blessed in yet, and so she did. (Tell her thank you again Jenni!) That was very thoughtful. :) I miss my Grandma Willard for that reason. (Lindey is named after her.) She always made my babies a new crocheted blanket to be blessed in. (She also made the best recieving blankets and matching burp cloths!) Haven't had one for the last two kids. Makes me miss her--lots.
Others that came were John's brother Thomas and his family, and Melinda Durrant. We sure appreciated your support on Lindey's special day!
Daddy and his pretty girl. Some of the things John blessed her with were that she would find a worthy young man and marry in the temple, be a peacemaker, be an example to the family, and to have good health.
Congratulations little Lindey! We sure do love you!
