On Dec 30, 2007 we had the privilege of blessing Bridget and Ethan in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was such a beautiful day for our family. We chose this day because Josephs family was in town and we really wanted them to be there and to take part in the blessing. Joseph gave the babies a name and beautiful blessings. I am so grateful to have a husband who is a strong member of the church and a priesthood holder and that he was able to perform this special ordinance for our children. I was go grateful for all of those that were able to participate. I am also so grateful to have both of their grandfathers there and that they were able to participate as well. Others were their uncle Wes, my uncle Ernie and my cousin Tony and our friend Tom. My cousin Kelly made it there a little late due to our wrong directions but we wee happy to have them come far to be with us. We had so much family to share this special time with us.

There blessing outfits were such a struggle at first. They babies were so little and it was hard to find a blessing dress and an outfit for Ethan that wasn't funny looking. I finally decided since it was Christmas not to have Ethan in white but to but him in a Christmas outfit or black pants, white shirt and a red vest and he was so handsome. I still wanted Bridget to wear white because i wanted her to have her three white dresses in her life and this was the first. My mother then came up with a brilliant idea. When I was a little girl my Aunt Sheryl made me this beautiful porcelain doll and hand made the clothes for her. It was a beautiful white dress and bonnet with pink roses. We tried the dress on Bridget and it fit! We changed the roses to red and added a red ribbon in front to match Ethan and we had the perfect blessing dress with the perfect story. It was 28 years old and we put it back on the doll after and now when she gets older she can have the doll who is wearing her blessing gown! I love it!
