Kadyn's Blessing

Today was Kadyn's special day :)
And she's also exactly 8 weeks old today...

She wore the same white dress as Kacey, as Kylie, and as me when I was 2 months old and baptized (for the first time in the Lutheran church)
The purpose of a blessing is to officially give her a name that she will be known as here on earth and on the records of the church and also to give her a blessing for her life endeavors. Another fun note: her middle name is the same as all her sisters. It's after my middle name, and my mom's, which was my mom's grandmother's name Elise -however for the girls, I've "Americanized" it by trying to spell it how it sounds in German, Elisa- pronunciation EEE Lisa.

Us with Grandma and Grandpa Boyd
The girls with Uncle Bryan and Aunt Rose Everyone outside of our church:

I didn't know we had the Men in Black visiting (I couldn't resist!)

The pictures are really great. We definitely like the family tradition stuff, too. The girls looked so cute.

Looks like you had a gorgeous day for Kadyn's Blessing.

Just one question: "Where does Uncle Bryan keep the batteries for those electric red shorts?"

Sorry nephew, I just couldn't help myself... :-)

What a beautiful blessing yesterday. I didn't know all your middle names are the same. Least you won't forget them, ha ha. Kadyn looked so sweet in her white dress. 1 white dress down, 2 more to go.

She's just beautiful. I keep looking for a chance to hold her when I see you but I'm usually running the other way chasing one of my own :) That's great that so many of your family were able to be here. It looks like you had a wonderful day.
