Gracie's Baby Blessing

Grandma and Grandpa Jensen

On Sunday we blessed Gracie. It was such a great day! She was so happy from the moment she woke up until she went to bed that night, it was like she knew what was going on and what a special day it was for her. Her dress turned out gorgeous thanks to Diane who made it for me she is a good friend of the family. It was like a liitle minature wedding dress! It was exactly what I wanted and more. I have always imagined my daughters blessing day and I always wanted her to have a beautiful blessing dress. The pictures don't even give it justice. We had alot of friends and family attend. Devin gave Gracie a wonderul blessing, it was really sweet. My dad and brother in law Luke said that when Devin was giving her the blessing she just stared at him the whole time and didn't even move a muscle, it makes you wonder what she was thinking. I always wonder what is going through that little head of hers because it always seems like they know so much when you look into their eyes! Then again I know she just loves her dad. She always just stares at him and waits for him to look at her and as soon as he does she just gets this big smile, its so cute! Everyone came over to our house after for brunch. Thanks to all of our friends and family who came and also for helping. We truly appreciate all of your love and support. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends. We had a good time and there was so much food, alot left over too. After a long day and a three hour nap for all of us we went over to my moms because my little brother was being ordained a Teacher in the Aaronic Priesthood, we are so proud of him. It was a great and special day all around. I love having a little girl, she is the sweetest thing and is so special to me. She is the happiest little thing too. I love my little guy as well, he is such a great big brother and so proud and protective of his little sister. That night when we were saying Eastons prayers he said "Heavenly Father, thanks for being at Gracie's blessing today". It was so neat, it made me think......alot. Kids are so close to the veil it's incredible! I was really stressed out before just trying to get my house and the food all ready but everything turned out perfect! It was a special day.

Very Cute Pictures! Devin did a great job giving her blessing. I am sorry we couldn't make it for dinner. Fast days are hard!!! You have such a cute family.

Apparently my Mother wasn't brilliant enough to look in the envelope! I don't live with her, never go over there (it depresses me) so I had no clue! Sorry I missed it!

Reagan looked at the pictures with me and asked who the girl was that looked exactly like you (your Mom). Gracie looks gorgeous and I'm glad it was such a great day.
