Baby Blessing

We had a wonderful experience last weekend with the baby blessing of the twins. My mom stayed with us for 5 weeks to help before and after the babies came, and when she left Joseph's mom came to stay for a little while. With the changing of the guard we decided it was a good time to bless the babies. Both of our fathers came for the weekend and also Joseph's aunt and uncle from DC came for the occasion too. Baby blessings are always very sweet - but two of your own, is especially emotional. Joseph gave beautiful blessings of health and spiritual strength. He even asked that Tate have extra patience to put up with all the girls in the home (that got a little chuckle from the congregation)! Special thanks to Nana and Papa Westover for the blessing outfits! Let me just say - taking pictures was definitely not the highlight of the day - everyone became especially crabby when the camera came out. I don't know why that is - on days you want to remember the most, pictures never turn out like you want. Anyway, here is what we got.
