Paisley's Blessing




Paisley is a 5 weeks and 1 day and we decided to bless her on Mother's Day since my family would be in the area due to my little brother, Kalan's, graduation from the University of Idaho. It was a good day filled with lots of friends and family. I felt a bit rushed and before I knew it it was 10:00 AM and none of us had showered or gotten even close to ready to be to church in 45 minutes, but we all made it! Lots of help from family and friends made the luncheon a success. I don't know how we would have done it since we had been out of town all week. Thanks so much! Paisley's dress was beautiful if I say so myself, we had bought it down in Rexburg over Christmas. She wore a bow made by my friend Amanda Chandler, a bracelet from the Child's World store down in Burley, and we used her blanket made by Marion. (Nana) Her shoes were too big, one fell off, so she only had one shoe on during the blessing. Those I also bought down in Rexburg over Christmas break. Stephen gave a beautiful blessing and I was very proud of him. We had lots of brothers, brother-in-laws and grandpas and great-grandpa Yorgesen standing in the circle and she was awake and very calm during her blessing. What a keeper she is!
Baby Broxton was here in his cute little blessing outfit, so that him and Paisley could get their pictures taken together. Beck ran around like a crazy man while Paisley just sat and looked around or snoozed on her special day as she got passed around to everyone that wanted to hold her. I had a very great Mother's Day and forgot it was Mother's Day with all the craziness in trying to get ready. Stephen made breakfast and I trickled downstairs at the smell of my favorite food... BACON! I got some motorcycle riding pants, jacket, helmet, and gloves.... Way cute too! Good food, Good friends, good presents, and Great family, a very good day indeed.....

Happy Mother's Day! What a beautiful blessing dress. I can't believe how much family you had! How great was that? Mexico looks beautiful! I miss mingling with people in my native language. I love how the water in Cancun is so blue. Nothing like the beach's I've seen anywhere else. At least you went with family. Giselle went a couple of years ago with another girl, during Spring break. It's an awful time of year to go. Especially for two young ladies. I was constantly worried about them all week long. Now I think you need to rest Missy. I can't believe you haven't had a chance to recover after giving birth. Take it easy or you're going to feel it later. Love, Sayda
