a blessing and a birthday

Sunday was my birthday so my mom and 2 sisters decided they would come up for a little visit.

Since they were coming we decided to bless Landon - so my dad and 3 brothers (including a sister-in-law and 3 nieces) came along for the fun!

I haven't gotten to spend a birthday with my family for a really long time.

Dave's brother Jim and his wife and 2 kiddos also joined us for the blessing and then came over for dinner later.

It was a great day...... and a VERY FULL HOUSE!!

This is what happens when you have 12 extra people in the house on Sunday morning (and church is at 9:00 in the morning!)

Landon looked so handsome for his blessing.

I found matching ties for my boys at Deseret Book and I'm totally in love with them.
(the ties and the boys)

I can't believe I didn't get any other pictures of Landon on his special day - so typical!!

Landon was passed around and loved on all day.
I don't remember ever hearing a peep from him.

We played games and ate yummy food.
My mom cooked everything and cleaned the kitchen.
I even got a nap!

Dad, Ayrial and Brandon

Ayrial hurt her back before she came so she was miserable all weekend, but I'm so glad she came anyway!!

I felt very spoiled!
