Baby Blessing Weekend: Part Two

Sunday morning we all go up bright and early to get ready for church. Kevin and Sarah finished the last of the food prep for lunch and dinner while I put pretty dresses on the girls and got their hair done. Then we headed to church for the blessing.

Kevin stood with Carl Uda, Dell Hanks, Brian Hanks, Bishop Duncan, and Dan Brown to bless Lily and he did a beautiful job! We stayed for the rest of our meetings and then headed home at noon for Chili and a photo shoot.

Brooklyn had a blast running around outside while we were taking pictures and didn't seem to mind that her little sister was getting all the attention.

Proud parents of our newly blessed little Lily!

Aunt Janna, Uncle Brian, and Aunt Sarah with Lily

And just for fun (and because we forgot to blog about Brooklyn's baby blessing) I thought I would post some side by sides of my daughters on their blessing days. They are both just about 3 months in these pictures.

We sure are happy to have two wonderful little girls to bless our lives with so much light and happiness! Thanks go out to everyone who made such an effort to be here to support our little family. We love you guys!

...and in case you were wondering, I will be posting more about our Sunday activities tomorrow. I just didn't want to overwhelm anyone with the massive amount of pictures we took all at once! :)

Awww...What a sweet little squishy girl! I''m impressed with how much family you had there, not too shabby! Those side by sides of the girls on their blessing day are so sweet. They don't look a thing alike though do they? I mean, you can tell they're sisters but they're definitely not the rubber stamp copies we all are! : )

Cute!!! Can't wait to actually come out and see them for myself :)P.S. Love Lily's facial expression in the last photo. Priceless!

Your girls are so beautiful! I can't believe how much they don't look like each other though. I didn't realize it before, but they definitely each have their own distinct looks (with a few similar features, of course).

The last picture is super sweet.

Wow these pictures are beautiful! Is that your own camera? If so, what kind is it? The color and clarity is awesome!
I love those pics of both girls on their blessing day, I didn't realize how different they look! They are both gorgeous, just totally different.
Congratulations, and glad you guys got to have some family there!

haha I loved seeing the pictures of Lily side by side with Brooklyn. They look so different yet you can definitely tell they are sisters.
