Brooklyn's Blessings Day

(I am slightly behind on posting this....I have been so busy with starting back at work, catching up with my sleep, takin care of sweet little Brookee, running errands you get the pictua.)

Clarke blessed Brooklyn On Sunday, March 15, 2009.

He gave such a beautiful blessing. I am so grateful for this gospel and the wonderful blessing is it is our lives. I'm grateful that my husband holds the priesthood and is worthy to bless our baby, what a lucky little girl to have such a wonderful father and father in Heaven!
A lot of our family and friends came, I couldn't believe it, people kept coming in the chapel after we had started, most of them family and friends, sorry bishop! Some even had to stay out in the waiting room. When I walked out of the chapel after sacrament meeting was over, the whole waiting area was completly full of people, mostly our family and friends. I was amazed at how many people came. It was so overwelming, I was so grateful that they all came up to share this special day with us. Some came as far away as Washington and California and as close as Syracuse and Ogden. Where ever and however long you traveled to get here we are so grateful to you for coming and we loved having you here. We love doing these things. Family get togethers are my absolute favorite thing in the world.
We didn't have anywhere to hold the traditional luncheon except our little condo in which we successfully pulled off with crunched family and friends. Lets just say we all got to know eachother a little better that day! I wish I would have taken a picture of how many people were in our house. I couldn't believe it. Everywhere you looked there were people and food and more people and more food even up stairs and some outside. Some even left because they couldn't get to the food, I really felt bad about that! But I'm glad that it worked out and everyone seemed to enjoy themseleves and the sweet star of the day! Here are some sweet things I was able to capture.
