Baby Blessings

Baby blessings in my family are a big deal. The whole family tries to make it out for the special event.  I have not missed one yet (14 so far).  I seriously have dreamt about having my own baby blessing for years now.  What would my baby wear, would I bear my testimony (they are usually done on fast Sundays), what would Curtis say, etc.?  I can't believe we got to have our own baby blessing - times THREE - and on Mother's Day of all days.  It was absolutely perfect.  My entire family was there to support us.  Curtis' parents and brother came out as well.  Having our family there meant the WORLD to us.  I was wondering how Curtis would make all 3 blessings unique and not just repeat himself - he did an amazing job!   We blessed the babies in our ward, then drove to California the next morning.

My mom made all the food for the luncheon.  SO good.
My friend Andrea offered her house for the luncheon (since we already have renters in our town home).  It was perfect.  Thank you soooo much for letting us raid your house!!
Curtis and Esther.  I miss her so much already.
The amazing girls in my family.  I was truly blessed with an amazing mom, sister, and sister-in-laws.
