Avery has been blessed

This is the look that Avery gets right as she is falling asleep. I think it is so darn cute, she gets those little smiles the whole time as she is drifting off to never never land.

Sunday was such a perfect day everything went just perfect. Why does blessing your baby have to be stressful? I guess all things worth doing need a little stress to add into the mix of things. Avery looked absolutely gorgeous, I didn't want the day to end, or my sweet baby girl to get one day older. She was exceptionaly good on Sunday, she slept all day. She has been having stomach issues so we got some drops to help with her stomach, I have a new baby.

My mom made Avery's dress 27 years ago; yes can you believe it something made it through the Thatcher household after 27 years. Lindsey washes Bridal gowns and said she could make it look new again. She did a wonderful job I couldn't have been more pleased. She washed and steamed the dress, it brought tears to my eyes when I saw it, thanks Linz!

These are the little girls enjoying themselves at the kids table, too cute!

After the blessing we all come over to
our house to have brisket. There is no
better meal than brisket. We figured if we had the family coming we had to make something really good to make up for the LONG drive, we know, we know we live in the middle of Delta.

But buying them is a lot easier sometimes. Haha. They are each named after my sisters and I and neices and nephews. Fun huh! Her email is
