New pictures...

This is the email that I received from grandma Bromley yesterday:

Nicki,

If you know how many times I check your blog for pictures, you would feel sorry for me. I keep thinking you will put some up of the blessing day.

Grandma


So, in order to brighten her day, here are lots of pictures from the last two weeks, including decorating our Christmas tree, the weekend with our families, the blessing day, and some other random ones.

Almost everyone who came to the blessing – only missing a few people

Owen and his parents on his blessing day (he had pooped out of his blessing outfit – that’s why he’s wearing blue)

Love the pictures! He is so cute and I love his smile! Enjoy him while he is still little (I don't speak from experience, just what others tell me ;)

I love your Christmas tree!! And I also love that Owen never smiles when you're trying to get him to smile for pics, but he does when you catch him unawares. :)

You got some great pictures. Bummer about the blessing day blowout. Why is it that they always choose that day to blow out???
