Savannah's Blessing

We have had a busy weekend. Friday Night we had all of our friends and family over and celebrated Savannah's blessing. For those of you not familiar with the LDS faith, a baby blessing is kinda like a christening. Orson was able to use his priesthood and give her a name upon the records of the church and also to give her a blessing to help her in this life. The night started off crazy because Orson's family was picking up the food and on the way to our house, the car died. So Chuck and Orson raced up to get them and then fought traffic all the way back. Just a delay though, no problem. We had Panda Express cater the dinner. So there was lots of food. We had Orange Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken, Sweet and Sour Pork, Beef and Broccoli, Fried Rice, Steamed Veggies, Chow Mein, and Jasmine Rice. I think everyone loved it and got more than their fill (we are still eating it). After the food we gathered everyone together in the family room and the men stood together and gave her a blessing. She was promised health, strength, and a love of the scriptures. I felt so blessed to have Orson speak the blessing. After the blessing we had a chance to visit and take pictures with everyone. Oh yeah and we had a really yummy cake. Because we took so many pictures I have only included a few.

These are the brethren who participated in the blessing.
