Luke's Blessing Day

The actual blessing day was very beautiful--- spiritually & physically.  Greg always does a great job saying exactly what the Lord wants him to say.  Mema usually writes the blessings down, but this time, she had a couple grandkids on her lap, so we had to record it.  I wish we would've done this with Jared & Belle, but that's what happens when technology gets better.. oh well.  Luke was good throughout the blessing and he had a blessing buddy named Leah--- every Star Wars nerd, be jealous. :)  Another unique thing about Luke's blessing is that Greg's second cousin, Christian, was able to participate. He and his cute little family have recently been stationed here (for now) and they were able to come & be apart of this special day.

After church, we went back to the house to have dinner and cake.  I say cake because we celebrated Great Aunt Cheryl & Annabelle's birthdays (Cheryl's was actually that day).  Annabelle even opened her presents from her grandparents.  She loved the dolls, clothes, and Minnie hair stuff that she enlisted Jiji to help her open them immediately.  It really funny because once she got her fake blowdryer to work, she brought it over to Luke and started to do his hair; she even tried to put clips in Jiji's & Deda's... super silly girl.  After Mema saved Luke from the perils of a big sister, the older kids took advantage of an empty Oba and had her read to them.

It ended up being a great day and, I know I've said this before, but Greg and I consider ourselves very lucky to have so many wonderful people in our family.  Even if some couldn't make the journey to Texas, we know how much they love us and the feeling is definitely mutual.
