Alexis Baby Blessing...in random order!

derek's parents, grandma helen, jace, jeff, kristina, elea, and my parents all came to omaha for alex's baby blessing. it was funny having everyone there. we really appreciated everyone traveling to be with us.



kristina and elea came a week early for the baby blessing. it's hilarious how two babies who have basically the same genes (moms are sisters, dads are brothers) can be so completely opposite! we were all having a good time comparing them. (just so you all know...alex is the bald one!!!)


(giving each other "rocks"!)


on september 28th it was alexis's baby blessing. it was a crazy morning because the omaha marathon was that morning and the city had the only street out of our neighborhood blocked completely off. it was very frustrating, and the police officers finally let us drive pass the baracades after much whinning and complaining!! it was hilarious when we got to church...after the sacrement was passed there were about 30 people in the foyer! the blessing itself was beautiful. derek did a really great job. the guys in the circle were derek, his dad and 2 brothers, my dad, and 5 of our friends.

I love her blessing dress, I don't know that I remember any of your other girls with bows in their hair. Your family picture kind of threw me off there for a minute. I'm not used to seeing that many kids.
