last sunday, december 2nd was owen's blessing. it was so fun to have friends and family in town (thank you so much to all who traveled near and far to be there) and to celebrate our beautiful little boy. i was a nervous wreck because usually o is pretty fussy at church - 11 am just isn't the best time - right when he starts getting tired for a nap. i was super worried that his dad would go to bless him and he would scream his head off. but, he was a champ. no crying whatsoever! i realized afterwards and after a huge sigh of relief that my stomach was totally in knots! i didn't realize how anxious i was! anyhow- afterwards my mom hosted a little luncheon (thanks again mom!) and we got more time to hang out with the fam. i of course didn't take any pictures, but with my sis and my father-in-law being there with their amazing cameras and skills, i didn't have to. here is some of what they captured:

He is so beautiful! I am so glad that you had so much family there! It makes it so special.

Yeah for Baby O. I am so glad that he was an angel for his blessing; I'm sure he knew it was important. And I am jealous that all your family is just a driving distance away, so they all could attend (I guess Clint's family is a ways, but not clear across the country like mine). Looks like a wonderful weekend. And I cannot believe how much O looks like his mommy. What a doll!

Okay, so Owen is beautiful... and he got your dimples! How cute. We REALLY should get together. It has been too long. I am going to Spain and Portugal in March but other than that my winter and spring are pretty free. Let me know if there is a weekend that would be good for you and maybe I will come down. Or, if you guys are up this way you are more than welcome to stay with me. I'm so glad that you are a blogger too!
