It was a very very busy weekend. It all started Saturday evening when my parents and some of my siblings came up to our house to make sure they had a front row seat to all of the blessing fun.

Due to the fact that I work nights, Sunday morning was the only time I had to sleep. But when I awoke I found that Uncle Tyler was already there and having fun with his new camera. By the way thank you Tyler and Chyanne for having a nice camera and being the unofficial photographers for Lynnlee's blessing. I was told that Lynnlee was a cute little angel all morning, but when it came time to get her blessing dress on she was not a happy camper. Luckily my wonderful wife is great under pressure.

The blessing was a happy time. There were great grandparents, grandparents. great aunts and uncles, aunts and uncles, and cousins in the congregation so Lynnlee could feel the love. It was also funny to realize that 5 rows in the middle of the chapel were all family. I was a little nervous about giving the blessing but it all worked out. I remember that love was mentioned a lot, and that makes sense because we really love our sweet Lynnlee girl. After Sacrament we got some pretty good pictures.

After the blessing Uncle Lane and Aunt Mallory were very nice and let us have a get together with friends and family at their new house. It was a great time. Everyone was asked to bring a finger food so there was a lot of very interesting and tasty treats. We are very grateful for all of the love and support that we get around here.

So there you have it another Blog post about busy lives. Just some side notes, Lynnlee is now weighing 9 lb 4 oz. That's right she has gained about 3 pounds in a month. We are so happy that she is happy and healthy. Another thing that I though would be interesting to mention is that Emily, Lynnlee and I are babysitting a turtle for a friend from work. He had a friend fish, but I guess they had a fight and the fish got eaten. He is a bit temperamental but all in all he is fun to watch.
