Sunday March 2 was Avery's blessing day. It was a wonderful day. Grandma and Grandpa Hill flew in to be here for it and Alex and Polly and their kids and our friends Jason and Melissa and Jared and Nanette came to join us. Kirtis gave her a beautiful blessing. She is such a darling. We love looking into her BEAUTIFUL crystal blue eyes. We are so blessed to have her in our family, and we can't wait to watch her grow up.

After the blessing, Kirtis was set apart to be Elders Quorum President. It is a big responsibility, but he will do a wonderful job and is excited to get to know the people in our ward better and learn to serve them.

So it was a big and wonderful day for our family!

Did you make her blessing outfit? I love it. What a big day for you guys. Wish we could have been there, but it sounds like you were really supported.

No, I didn't make it. I forgot to mention. It's an heirloom christening gown from my mom's family. I think it's beautiful.

She is so beautiful and I see a little bit of Jackson in her!:) I'm so glad she is doing better!

She looked so beautiful when Kurtis lifted her up right after the blessing, she is adorable! It was a day full of events for you with the blessing and the setting apart. It was wonderful to have been able to be there for both. It's exciting to get to know you better now that our husbands will be working in their new callings, hehe!

She is just a doll. I love the blessing dress, too.

Baby Avery is a doll. I think she looks like you. Wish we could've been there for the big blessing day. She looks beautiful in these pics.

Looks like Kirtis's side needs to be represented here...

It was really nice to be a part of Avery's blessing. I must say she looks a lot like her old man. In fact I think you two should be a baby factory, Avery is that good looking.

PARABEMS! Jared

Gina,

Hey! I was commenting on Sunnie's blog and I saw you on there. Remember me? I'm your long, lost RA. What a small world!
