Peyton's Blessing

Tyler blessed Peyton at church today and the blessing was as beautiful as she is. She wore a dress my grandma Kay made for her. Several people asked if it was my dress because it had an old fashioned look to it. I loved it! She also wore socks and a headband that sister Boydston made for her and shoes from Mary Luke. Many people were able to attend. My Mom and Dad and 2 of my sisters, Lindsay and Morgan, my Grandma Kay and Grandpa Frank, Tyler's Mom and Dad (they're mine too!) and brother Brent, Marcia and Scott (Tyler's sister and her husband)and Essien (their son). The men who stood in the circle for her blessing were: Tyler (daddy), Uncle Scott, Papa Ron, Uncle Brent, Rick (Uncle Scott's dad), and Bishop Dockstader. She started to cry just before her blessing and stopped. It went really well. Marcia and Scott were both scheduled to give talks today, so that was an added bonus, they gave beautiful, emotional, heartfelt talks. We also had a young man in our ward speak who is leaving on his mission soon and he gave a wonderful talk. I had to hear everything via the speaker in the mother's room, but that's ok. I'm glad they have a speaker in there! I got to sit next to my family for a bit during the end of sacrament meeting and that was nice, I don't get to have them there at church very often. I am very happy and grateful for all the blessings that we have.
