We are so Blessed!

My mother-in-law made a beautiful blessing dress for Desea. I decided to use that same one for all my girls. Well, I searched everywhere and I couldn't find it. My sister Ashley gave me the idea to use my own blessing dress to bless Ciela in. It isn't the prettiest of dresses, but she is too cute for anything to look ugly on her.

Lex administered a beautiful blessing. How grateful I am that my husband is a worthy priesthood holder. Thank you to all who were able to participate. We are so thankful for your love and support.

My brother Jared ( Akona Photo ) took these pictures of our girls when Ciela was one week old. They turned out beautifully! Thanks Jared!

My family gets together every Sunday for dinner. It is nice because it gives us moms a break from cooking a whole meal plus all the little cousins get to play. Well, a couple Sundays ago Desea had to use the potty. All of a sudden it got really quiet. Sarah (my sister in law) and I couldn't hear Jazzy or Taije. They had followed Desea into the bathroom. Thankfully they hadn't made too much of a mess. Sarah put everything away while I got Jazzy and Taije out of the bathroom and helped Desea finish up. Before leaving Desea told Auntie Sarah and I that "I got pad!" I didn't understand what she was talking about, so I just nodded my head and said okay. Desea went to the dinner table where everyone else was and announced over and over, "I got a pad!" No one knew what she was talking about. It then dawned on me that I just had a baby and was having to wear those gosh awful pads! I pulled Desea's pants down to find a maxi pad in her panties exactly how it is supposed to be placed. She sure did have a pad, what a silly girl!
