Timothy's Blessing

We were surprised by so much family who made room in their busy schedules to drive down or fly over for Timothy's blessing. It really meant a lot to us to be surrounded by family at this special time. Having little hooligans of our own, we know it is no simple task to take kids anywhere--let alone on a 3 1/2- 5 hour car drive--so it meant all the more.

We were really excited to meet cute little Ellie, the next youngest cousin. She is a doll, and absolute sweetie, and I didn't want to give her back to go home.  Wesley thought she was pretty fun. I loved how Fredrick called her, "Babie Owie."


There were so many little boys running around, so fun. Our boys were in heaven! Wesley was in tears when his fun cousins had to leave. Here they all are, Saturday night, eating out on the grass. Sam's face is the absolute best in this picture.


Uncle Joe with his namesake. Timothy promptly fell fast asleep, Joe has the touch! I love Timothy's little frog feet poking out of the blanket.


My mom's sister was able to fly out with my Grandma from Denver for the weekend. It was so nice to see her, and wonderful that she brought my grandma who didn't want to travel alone. My grandma stayed for a week and a half after, and it was so nice to have her here for a visit.

We tortured the family with some pictures. Host prerogative I suppose.


Wesley had to photobomb this, he didn't want to let Molly out of his sight. He really loves his cousin Molly.


Molly was a really good sport about her little admirer following her around.


Typical Fred!


I couldn't resist posting this one of the Chantry clan, Ikey was so cute and funny. He and Fredrick are quite a pair together! Little wily rascals both of them.


Cousins!


Timothy was such a good baby during the blessing--just a mellow little guy. We really hit the jackpot on cuteness and disposition.


Now, it really is a shame that we didn't catch Joe doing his typical "picture face." He and LeGrand are really two of a pair. And Mandy and I wonder where our boys get their silly from . . .


We had to strike a similar pose to when we were pregnant at the same time . . . now feeling much better with the babies in our arms! I love this girl, she is a great sister.


My grandma. Thank you so much for making the trip. Love you so much.


Per usual, I was up to about one AM sewing together Timothy's blessing outfit. The pieces had been knitted for months, I just really hate sewing the seams together. It is tedious, eye-straining work.Yeah. I should have been more on top of things.


We were lucky that we had the blessing when we did, because as it was, he was straining the seams of his outfit. When we got around to doing these portraits, we couldn't button a few of the buttons. He's a healthy little fellow!


My mom knitted this gorgeous blessing blanket, and Great-Grandma Leora Johnson crocheted the booties. They fit perfectly and were so special. Grandma, you were thought of often!
