Ella's Blessing Day

Ella's blessing day was more stressful than I ever thought it would be.  I am a worrier though.  
In the end everything turned out to be fine.  Ella was nice and quiet during her blessing and everyone got enough to eat.  Most importantly, Cimaron gave her a beautiful blessing.  Cimaron also blessed Ella's cousin Ambrose.  It was a great day that we will never forget. 
 Here are some pictures from the day!

When we got home Ella was a little cranky.  When we changed her diaper she was super happy.  So we took her clothes off and let her hang out for a while.  She looked so cute we had to take some pictures!!

You looked so calm that day! I remember thinking back to Crue's blessing and how stressed I was. And we didn't even feed people!! (mostly I was worried about him spitting up waterfalls onto his blessing outfit)
Anyway, it all went really well! Cim did a great job. And her dress was amazingly cute! Aunt Dixie did a really good job!

Making a blessing dress our of your wedding dress is a beautiful idea! I hope I have a little girl someday so I can steal the idea :0)

I didn't know that about her blessing dress. COOL! so cute too. It was a beautiful day so glad we were able to be there. Oh! and I will email you the pics Cim asked for (the un-tucked tie one and another, I will have to refresh my memory)

Carli, Can I use one of the last three pics on my etsy site to show off the butterfly Tattie? I'll crop it in to a square so it's mostly her head. If so, could you please email them to me? Thanks!
