We decided to bless little Emery at home instead of at church this time around. We invited just the grandparents over and had a small dinner to celebrate Emery. And I am thankful for the intimate experience we were able to have with this sweet little girl. It was great just to dote on her and relax at home for a while not having to think about anything else. Miss E got to wear a beautiful blessing dress that both of her cousins Kiana and Maiya wore on their blessing days. It was really special. Her blessing was beautiful as well. It had a lot of wonderful and beautiful promises regarding the life ahead of her. I was overwhelmed honestly. It was emotional and lovely. I am so thankful for this little girl in my life, what a wonderful blessing she is.

I asked the boys what their favorite part of their birthday was and Dylan said going to Red Robin, and Lucas said that eating his Ichiro cake was the best part. :) I am not the most creative person in the world when it comes to cake making, so I just made two round cakes and decorated them to look like baseballs with a #51 on each for Ichiro. :) They loved them though, so I guess that is all that matters.
