Blessing Day

This last Saturday we blessed our little baby boy. The day was perfect! I really wanted my brother, Tommy, to be able to help bless him and we also wanted a more personal setting, so we decided to bless him at home. We held the blessing at Gabe's dad's house and invited some close friends and family. My mom bought his blessing outfit and it'll be used for the future grandson's blessings. It is so cute and he looked scrumptious in it. It even had a little bowtie! His Aunt Mely put him to sleep just before the blessing and he stayed asleep the whole time. Gabe gave a really beautiful blessing. I knew he would - he always says the best things when he prays. I never imagined I would be married to anyone but a worthy priesthood holder, but it's times like these that make you really appreciate the significance of that. I am really grateful to be blessed with such a good man as my husband. Anyone who knows him knows exactly what I mean; and good is an understatement:) It was surreal listening to my own son be blessed. Will it ever feel real? I'm so excited to see him grow into a boy and then a man and I know he will be a wonderful person if he lives up to the blessing Gabe gave him. I love my little family. And I'm super biased, but it's hard to not love my little man when he's so darn cute!

Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas to everyone. Here are just some pictures of our Christmas in Provo with my family. It was fun and we ate a lot! Little Gabriel had a great time with his cousins and just hanging out. It was a white Christmas. How perfect!!!

So Beautiful!

One of my friends, Tara Salinas, came over last week to take pictures of Gabriel. I was so excited to see these 2 that she had posted on Facebook. I love them - I can't wait to see the rest. And Tara - Wow! You are an amazing photographer!
