MJ's blessing day

This is much overdue, but MJ is officially known on the records of the church. C gave a beautiful blessing which included a blessing of protection and to have a smile; needless to say, we are grateful for both. She is such a happy baby. She loves to face out and I believe she really thinks all people talking in front of her are talking to her. What a joy!

Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Wouden, Aunt Keryn and the Marble family for coming in person, and to all of our friends and family who were thinking of us from afar.
We feel blessed to have such a special little girl in our family.

Thank you Marlies for the darling dress--it was perfect for the occasion! And this blanket was given to us from Grandma-great Afton. We miss you!


  1. Great family photo! I love how grown up the kids are getting with another baby in the house. Miss you all!

  2. You look gorgeous Chaliese. And the babe is adorable of course. Sigh. How I wish I could see you in action as a wife and mama, I know I would be learning so much from you like always :) I will just try to imagine it all until we move to Austin someday - or at least visit! :)

  3. Congratulations! What a good looking family. Your kids are so cute. I hope Austin is still treating you well. So many great memories of you guys and Austin. :)
