Baby Blessing

Yesterday we had Bella's baby blessing. It was very nice and simple. my bishop asked me not to invite to many people into the circle so i kept it pretty low key. Mandy's family from Wyoming drove out and a couple of my dads siblings came out as well. It was very nice to have the support. While giving my baby girl a blessing my mind was stuck on the tempting and rapidly changing times she is going to be growing up in. I mainly focused my blessing on her being able to draw on inspiration and strength from family, church leaders, scriptures, etc to able to battle these times. I've seen so many challenges that i never faced growing up just in the last few years that make me worry as a father for my kids. The best i can do is try to equip them with trusting parents and places to go for strength when they need it.

Here are some pictures of happy baby Bella on her special day :)
Bella's Aunties Liana and Beth. We call Beth Bell which is where we got 'Bella' from

What a sweetheart! It is terrifying to think of what our children will face. The good news is they're coming into this world with so much strength and determination. My prayer is that I can guide that strength in the right direction. You guys are such awesome parents and will give your children a solid foundation to conquer the world. BTW, Beth looks awesome! I haven't seen her since Hawaii 2000.
