Nora's blessing day

We blessed Nora on April 15 in our ward. We were lucky enough to have lots of family there, and Matt gave Nora such a sweet blessing. My mom and I made Nora's blessing dress (well... my mom did most of the work. I designed it and did the skirt and bonnet, and my mom did the bodice and sleeves and then put all the parts together).

Matt's parents, two of his little sisters Jenny and Melinda, and his older brother Jon and his wife Sarah, and their kids

My parents, youngest siblings Madeline and Kevin, grandma and grandpa Bromley, and grandma Auman

Our sweet little family!

Nora with all the men who blessed her: her uncle Jon, great grandpa Bromely, grandpa Farrell, Matt, grandpa Auman (known as "the apartment grandpa" in our house :) and uncle Kevin (who is too young to be part of the blessing but got to hold the microphone :). Our bishop and home teacher also helped, but we didn't get a picture with them. 

Four generations on my side... Nora, me, my mom, and both of my grandmas.

Sweet baby in the dress we made.

I love that chiffon flower trim that we found... we put it on the bonnet, the bodice, and around the bottom of the skirt.
