Eloise's Blessing and More

These past few weeks have been kind of a whirlwind. My parents came to town for Conference weekend and so we decided to bless Eloise at our house that Sunday between sessions. The night before, we threw Julie a baby shower with all our cousins. Then, I left on Monday for Dallas for the week to visit Rachel. It was a lot of fun even though I didn't do the best job of documenting it all.

A VERY proud Daddy. Christian did an amazing job of inviting the spirit before, during, and after the blessing. I'm so grateful for the man he is and the example he sets for our son.

The "Blessers:" Bishop Jones, Greg, my Dad, Christian, Ryan, David, Seth, and Dave

It's official: I'm a midget.

The one picture of my trip to Dallas: sweet Lauren holding Eloise. Lauren is a little angel and was right there helping me whenever I needed something. We had such a fun and relaxing time in Dallas. My Mom and JoLynn watched Oliver and Amelia and I took Eloise to meet her cousin, Tessa for the first time. They loved each other instantly:). Rachel was a perfect host and I even got to catch up with my first BYU roommate, Sheree and her new little baby.
