Mckinley's Blessing

I have a lot to blog about, but real quick I wanted to add some pictures of Mckinley in her blessing dress today so my parents can see her.

Mckinley was pretty excited to be blessed on the 4th of July. Man, she is such a cutie. I got tons of pictures of her smiling before the blessing and after.

Aunt Kristen let her borrow this dress that she made back in college. It was beautiful. I told my 5-year old niece Ella in Church that Kristen made Mckinley's dress. Ella looked up at Kristen and said, "Was it too small for you? Is that why you gave it to her?" Kids are so adorable.

Mckinley has had lots of crying spells lately so we were really worried about how she would do during the blessing but of course she did great. I fed her before Church and she just stayed wide awake and was perfectly happy the whole time.

The blessing Brandon gave her was beautiful. I tried to record it but I don't know if you can hear him well enough.

What a little angel! That is an awesome family picture. Way-to-go "Dad" - first baby blessing! Thanks for helping to share your day with us. That's a pretty special 4th of July. It sure didn't feel like the 4th of July in Hong Kong. But we are making a "picnic" for the elders today.
