Tatum's blessing day

On New Year's Day Tatum was blessed by her dad. Since Brennan's family wouldn't be able to make it unless we waited until March for the blessing, we decided we would just do it right away so Mara and Ben could be here. It was nice to have so much family here for her special day. We weren't even sure if we were going to have a dress for her. Finding a blessing dress in the middle of Iowa is not an easy task. Luckily I have a fabulous mother and aunt who worked together to get us one from Utah. And I couldn't have chosen a better one myself, it was perfect!

We managed to make it to Church on time, Tatum was calm during the entire event, and Brennan gave a beautiful blessing. It was a great day.

The whole clan.
I'm not sure why some of these pictures are so far away ;) but it's pretty cute how Tatum is yawning in this one of three generations.
Me and Tatum with my awesome parents. They have always done so much for us, but I have never appreciated it more than now. I don't know what we would do without their help and their constant reminder that they are only a phone call away. (And check out my dad's new glasses. Pretty sweet, eh? Mara, Ben, Brennan, and I helped him pick them out. :))
Tatum looking pretty precious.
Happy blessing day Tatum!


  1. I love Dad's glasses - we did a really good job. And I guess the pictures are so far away because the photographer wanted to be sure to get your whole bodies in the picture. ;)

  2. She looks so cute and already kind of big in that dress. I can't believe it. :-( Slow her down until we get to see her and hold her. Glad that you had a great day.
