Zoey's Baby Blessing

Zoey's baby blessing was so special. We had her blessing on Tues December 29th in Jake's hometown. We held the blessing at the church around the corner from the Nelson's house. We had a short program including some words for Lloyd (Jake's dad), the blessing, and a special gift giving tradition from Sharon (Linda's close friend). Jake gave such a sweet blessing, and Zoey stopped crying the second he started with the prayer. She really wanted to listen!! It was so wonderful to be able to have Zoey blessed with a name in the church. She is such a precious gift and we loved being able to share this with people we love. Linda worked so hard to put it all together for us and to have a great dinner afterward where we could all mingle and enjoy being around family and friends.
Zoey (10 1/2 weeks) looked beautiful in her blessing dress made by Linda.

Zoey and I wore matching bracelets. She also wore one made by Linda which is in this pic
