Blessings

Today was Max's blessing day. My parents, Aaron's parents, and our good friends came to participate in the special blessing. Aaron gave a beautiful priesthood blessing and Max was a perfect baby the whole time. Aaron also sang "I Stand All Amazed" in a quartet during sacrament meeting. Aaron has such beautiful voice, but he doesn't like to perform very often, so it is a special treat when we get to hear him sing.

Hank wore this tuxedo when he was blessed so I thought it would be special for Max to wear the suit, too. Its funny because when Hank wore it, he was swimming in the outfit it was so big. When Max wore the same outfit, he was bursting at the seams and it looked like little knickers. I don't blame Max for being grumpy in this picture, I'd be mad if I had to wear little booty shorts too.

I thought little pudgy Max looked cute!

On this special blessing day, I feel grateful for so many special blessings. I feel so blessed to have a husband who is a worthy priesthood holder and is able to give our sons special priesthood blessings and preside in our home. I am especially blessed to have been given two precious sons. I know that they are righteous spirits who were saved to come to earth during these last days to lead in the Lord's army. I feel humbled to be chosen as the mother of these amazing little boys. We are so lucky to have Max in our family and I love him to pieces.
