Our Eternal Family



I feel a little relieved now that our busy weekend is over.

Saturday morning we were able to have Boston sealed to us. It was a wonderful day! I put Boston in his white outfit the night before to make sure it fit (I had to hem the pants without a sewing machine), so I was prepared for what he was going to look like. But when I first caught a glimpse of him when I was walking into the sealing room and he was sitting on one of the temple workers lap in another room, he just looked so good. I started to get a little teary eyed. Then I walked into the sealing room and there were so many people! I felt so loved. Zariph's parents and my mom and Mike were there, also Julie, Jake, Lindsay, and Cameron, Aunt Eula and Uncle Larry, my grandma, friends from our ward, Rachael and Jesse, and my high school friends, Mindy and Tracy and her husband Matt. It was wonderful kneeling across the alter (again) from Zariph and then having Boston placed on the alter it was just so neat.

After the sealing we took a bunch of photos. We had our photographer friend Rachael, take the pictures. I can't wait to see them, I think they turned out good. I wish Boston would have smiled a little more, he was pretty tired by this point.

Then we all went to lunch at Sizzler. We reserved the banquet room so we could all sit together. I think it turned out well.

Then Sunday we had Boston's blessing. Zariph did a wonderful job, I was really impressed that he put that much details into what he said. Then we had an open house at our house afterwards. It was a fun weekend, but very busy. I'm glad to go back to "normal" life now.

I took Boston in for his 6 month check up this morning. He's 17 lbs. and 28 inches! He also got his shots and he's been sleeping since we got home 2 1/2 hours ago! I know he's wiped out from all the excitement this weekend, too.
