The more I think about blessings, the more I think how beautiful it is when friends, family and fellow churchgoers all bow their heads in support and love for the new baby and their family. I kept looking around and thinking about everyone in that chapel who had helped me and my family during this crazy pregnancy and delivery. Sometimes it feels like we're all alone and far from home here in Arizona, but on Sunday, with friends and family who had come, it felt like home. It made me cry. And then of course I had to get up and share my testimony and cry about it some more in front of everyone. ;)
Sam gave two really amazing blessings, we gave lots of hugs to our family and friends, and we generally admired our twins in their cute white outfits. And that was that!
*Let the record show that Sam did not bless the babies with ridiculous things like the ability to fly or walk through walls, despite weeks of teasing me and leading me to believe otherwise. He also stuck to the names on their legal records, again despite weeks of teasing. Oh Sam.
This last picture is my new favorite of our little family. We are crazy and sleep deprived, but we sure do like each other.
