Addy's Blessing Day

Today was Addy's blessing. It was hard to be away from all of our close friends in Maryland, but it was wonderful to be in Utah with all of our family. Amber's family was all in town for a family reunion and so we planned for a double blessing for Addy and her cousin, Brody. It has been almost two years since we had so much family around, including all grandparents and all surviving great grand parents. Addysen looked beautiful in her dress and cooperated pretty well. It sure was a happy day.
This was Addy's first time to see many in the family. When we gave her to great grandma Cottrell, she smiled!

Here are my two pretty girls with their curly hair.
I love finally being together with Amber and the kids again. Home is where your family is and I truly feel complete again now that we are all reunited.
Correction... Here are my three pretty girls with their curly hair:)

You were bound to get a kid with that pretty curly hair - I remember telling Bri at her wedding that she has no chance! I envy the girls. I love the picture of you kissing Addy's head...priceless!

Addy looks beautiful in her blessing dress. I still can't get over her beautiful hair! I've always loved how curly your hair is, Amber, and it looks like Addy's is just like it!

It looks like you had a really good time. We were sorry to miss it.
