Jaxsons Blessing Day

What a beautiful day for a blessing. It was slightly overcast, and the perfect temperature for a home full of guests. And when I say full I mean it. I was amazed at the number of people who would come so far to spend this day with us.
Jaxson was the perfect baby. He was crying just before sacrament started and I thought to myself, "Well, I guess we finally got our crier." But after a quick meal and a few loves from his Dad, he settled right in and was awake for his entire blessing, with no tears. Of course, his blessing was wonderful and great and everything it was suppose to be.
Then we partied here at home. Good food and good friends. It was truly a wonderful day.P.S. For all who asked, here is the recipe for the Broccoli Salad and the Cake.

1 head of Broccoli
1 head of Cauliflower
1/2 Pkg of Bacon (crispy)
1 small red Onion, chopped

We had such a great time yesterday with you, Cory and the kids. I forget how much fun it is to be around Cory and Brice and all the stories they tell. I really enjoyed your blog - in fact, so much so I over cooked my batch of carmels...my dentist is going to love me...I think I keep him provided with exotic vacations. Give your darling kids hugs and wet sloppy kisses from me. Lots of love, Allyson
