Oliver's Blessing

Bad, Bad blogger...
I know
I actually had to put blogging on my list
of things to do today
just to make sure I got it done...

Anyways...

We traveled to Salt Lake this past weekend
to bless Oliver at Rhett's parent's house.
With all our families in Salt Lake or Logan,
(with the exception of my parents in CA)
It just seemed easier for us to travel
and have everyone be able to attend
rather than try to get everyone to travel to us
And I'm so glad we did it that way

It was so neat to have all our family there.
We blessed Oliver Saturday evening.
Rhett gave him a beautiful blessing
and it was wonderful to have the grandpas
and brothers there in the circle.
Afterwards, we had a nice dinner at the house
and a great time visiting and spending time with everyone.

Oliver looked so handsome in his blessing outfit.
This outfit was made for my brother, Matt
by my Grandma Peterson.
My other brother, Dan was blessed in it
and my other three boys have been blessed in it as well.
It has some special history.
How grateful I am for our family
and being able to spend time with them
and that they would help us celebrate
Oliver's special day.

It was a special day, thanks for inviting us Steph. I can't how fast Oliver is growing, he is such a cute little baby. Hopefully we'll get to see you guys again in just a few weeks.

Sounds like a great time! Lukas was almost blessed in a Buffalo Bills blanket. Story of my life... I am excited that you had all your family with you.
