Matthew's Blessing Day

We blessed Matthew today in church. Last night John had made a joke about how he was going to lose track of time in his stake meetings and forget to come to sacrament meeting for the blessing. This morning as it hit 9:00 and Bishop Moffat got up to start the meeting, John wasn't there. I actually did have to go and get him from the clerk's office. Good thing I knew where he was!
Anyway, John did a great job with the blessing. Amid all of the usual things, John blessed Matthew with an abundance of love and with the desire to heed the council of his priesthood leaders. It was pretty cool! John, his dad, Gavin, Dwane, Tyler, our friend Marshall and Brother Hedberg from the bishopric were in the blessing circle.


It was a beautiful day!

Matthew is a gorgeous baby! We were so happy to be there.

If you have time, can you send me high-res copies of the photos of the whole family? It came out really nicely. I would love to have some printed for Theo's baby album. :)
