Being So Blessed

Our darling little Cambry received her blessing on July 14, 2013 by her father.

We decided (finally) that we’d just do it in our home ward when we had Chezney in town to take on the role of our whole family. Things were a little hectic in the morning and we barely made it on time. Getting 6 people ready and out the door before 9 is no easy task.

It was a lovely blessing. Mark, Paul Weitzel, Tom Haymore and Brandon Salmon were in the circle. She was an angel during it and looked beautiful. We’re pretty sure they forgot we were doing it because they moved on to the sacrament before doing it. So I had Mark go up to the stand and let them know. They said they’d do it after the sacrament. That’s definitely not standard procedure. Funny thing was, I was really nervous about that happening since they did that to someone else a while ago.

But, we worked it out and she received her official “name” as Cambry Ann Reeder. Afterward we had a luncheon at our house for friends.

Cambry wore Kaia’s dress and shoes, but fit it much better, since she was a lot older. I was happy that we got to use it again.

We decorated with pink paper pom poms, pink stars and pink and white dishes and decorations.   We had pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw, fruit and veggies and potato salad. It was yummy!

It was a great afternoon. I’m so thankful for our friends and their love and support. And I’m glad my sister could be there to share it with us too. She’s the only one in our family who’s now been to all three =)
