Gavin's was sweet because he was the first grandson. He was one of the cutest little boy babies I've ever seen. Also at his blessing, I'd just found out I was pregnant and was sick as a dog. I hated it and was still in denial to telling people I was pregnant. We'd come down from Utah for it and got to have a luncheon at the Hadfield home. I was so busy with school, working at the temple and throwing up that I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I should've.
Then there was Matthew's. Eight months later. So many memories from this one. Ammon gave a wonderful blessing that made me realize how lucky I am to have a husband who holds the priesthood who can bless our children. Cody came down for it and Cliff was able to be there. Ammon's family isn't active in the church so he didn't get to have any of his family in the circle, but it was nice having mine there. Chris was in Romania and we missed him very much. It was also so extremely hot that summer in 2008. We had a nice luncheon afterwards and we had a blue chocolate fountain. That was so much fun.
After nine months pass, it's time for another blessing. We were leaving for Kentucky soon so I don't remember much about Reese's blessing but that we were so close. Since we were living in Green Valley at the time, it didn't take us much time at all to get to Sloan and Zane's ward. We again had a nice luncheon at Zane's parents' house. I remember how sweet Reese looked. And now, here we are over two years later at another one. I wanted this to be special because Shaun and Gina will not be having any more kids (unless they adopt of course) and because they've been waiting so long for this little girl to come. I'd been wanting to make white cake pops for a long time and so when Gina asked me to make cake pops for the blessing, I was really excited. I told her exactly what I was going to do and she didn't even have a chance to tell me what she wanted. I LOVED the way they turned out and they could possibly be my most favorite cake pops I've ever made. I LOVED having a blue chocolate fountain at Matthew's, but this was so...pure. So sweet and precious. Perfect for a perfect little girl. I also made her a sweet white binky clip that went perfectly with the day.
