Blessing Day

Chris gave Charlie a name and a blessing today. It was a bit eventful with our bishopric forgetting about us and with Alec being a handful during the blessing. Lesson learned? Next time we bless a baby, ask someone (a friend, or hopefully a family member) to help with the younger children so I can focus on listening to the blessing. Anyways, from what I heard, Charlie received a wonderful blessing. Three parts that stood out to us said he was blessed with a love for work and service, that he would have compassion and see the needs of those around him and that he'd recognize and magnify his talents. To celebrate this special day, I'll post some recent pictures of Charles smiling. He is so adorable and happy and wonderful. We're lucky to have him in our family. Look forward to an upcoming post about the ward Christmas party and a friend's 30ish kid nativity pageant the boys took part in.
