blessed day

Yesterday was blessing day.

Family gathered together to give our baby his official name and blessing.  These were the cast of characters involved with that ordinance.

l to r:
best-est friend in the whole wide world-derek, aaron's brother-nate, aaron's dad-dale, aaron holding oneil, my sisters' husband-dave, my brother-craig, aaron's sisters' husband-scott, and cade out for a sunday stroll.

 Here's all the kids who were present.  A million tries later, and this is the best shot.  Perfect, if you ask me.

Five babies in 7 1/2 years.  We may or may not be a little on the crazy side.

And my Dad was standing in the circle....Aaron wore a pair of his shoes.

It was a blessed day.

It WAS a blessed day! Love you and your family.
I didn't know Aaron was wearing Dad's shoes. Tell him he needs to be a little more duck foot to pass it off!

What a beautiful family you guys have. I love these pictures (Cade on his "Sunday Stroll" in the first one made me laugh).

And to comment on the previous post, I can't believe those people actually said that. You handled it really well, though, I probably would have just stood there speechless.

Those are some big shoes to feel....He is doing a great job!

I was wondering if you were missing your Dad that day. What a great idea to wear his shoes! How did they get so lucky to be the same shoe size?
