Sayer's Blessing

Our little family.  Asher was having a VERY rough day!

The other reason my whole family was in town was for Sayer's blessing. Ben and Whit were already coming to town, so we thought it would work out nice to do it then. Nate's parents were able to come down too, which was so nice of them. It's so nice to have so much family around for occasions like this.  I just realized that I didn't get pictures of anyone else that was there, besides my family.  Lame.  Nate's brother Andy came with his family, his brother Mackay and his girlfriend Natania, all of my sisters, my Aunt Bobby and Uncle Gordon, cousin Stephanie and her 3 cute kids, cousin Karie and her husband Eric, cousin Aaron and his wife Audrey, Aunt LJ, and Aunt Karen.  We had a luncheon at my house afterwards, with nummy food.  It was a very full house, but so fun to visit with everyone.  Thanks everyone for coming!

Nate gave Sayer a beautiful blessing. The part that stuck out the most to Nate was that he would be a peacemaker in our family. I really can tell that he has such a sweet disposition, even though he is sad a lot these days. It's like he is trying so hard to be happy, but his little tummy gets in the way. I know it will pass, and I can't wait to see his little personality come out. Sayer was so good during the blessing. Nate said he was asleep the whole time until the end when he held him up.

I love Sayer's eyes, they look so cute in this picture

Whit and Sayer
Sad baby Sayer
More sad Sayer. He still looks so sweet and so cute!  Unfortunately, we didn't get any nice pictures of him not crying.  Oh well.

My mom made his blessing outfit, and it turned out SO cute. It looks like kind of a raw silk material. I loved it, and of course, Sayer looked so precious.

What a beautiful family. And how cool that the first generation was all girls and the next generation is all boys so far. Right?

Hi Morgan! You have adorable little boys! I love the blogging world. I've come in contact with people I've lost touch with. So fun. Now that Erica is pregnant, we're trying to convince her to start a blog. Thanks for finding me.
