Blessing the Fox


Yesterday was such a wonderful day. We woke up extra early to get ready for church. We knew we couldn't be late -it was Fox's blessing day! So we made sure his little bow-tie was on straight, his dress shirt onesie was nicely ironed, and he wore actual shoes for the first time in his life!

We made it to church on time and were ecstatic to see most all our family and friends there to show their love for little Fox. Camaron was able to give Fox the sweetest blessing -too bad I bawled through the whole thing. Afterwards, we were blessed to enjoy one of the least-awkward testimony meetings I can remember.

The amazingness does not stop there.

It continued on full-throttle at my parent's house once the meeting was over. We got to enjoy a glorious brunch with everyone. AND I found out my cousin and my sister-in-law are both pregnant!!! Yippeeee!!! More friendsies for Fox!

Oh, by the way, you see Fox in the above photo? Yeah, that's how he was looking all morning. Asleep. It was wonderful. So, basically, if you want yourself a well-behaved baby for early-morning church, simply keep them up until around 1am on accident the night before. But, then again, maybe that's just what works for our family.

The day also included hearing Camaron's little brother speak in his ward (He just returned home from the Tennessee, Knoxville mission). And then a family/friend get together for him at Cam's parent's house that evening. Which later led to playing mafia with the cousins until way past Fox's bedtime (again). Basically, we were on family-overload this weekend (which is just fine ...as long as I get to eat plenty of food).

    1. Gentri! Yes, his name is Fox:) That's awesome that you've had that name on your list -it's the best! How did you think of that name? People always ask us that, and I wish we had a cool story, but somehow it just got thrown in the mix when we were trying to pick a name, and we ended up loving it:)
