Eli's Baby Blessing

A little over a week ago, on Sunday, October 4th, we blessed our little Eli at my parent's home in Omaha, Nebraska. We feel so fortunate that Jason's parents and his brother Lance drove out from Utah to share the special occasion. (Given the long distance, Nebraska was a better meeting point than Illinois.)

The blessing itself was simple, yet so beautiful. Eli's grandfathers gathered around as Jason took his son into his arms to give him a name and a blessing. I hope that someday Eli realizes how fortunate he is to have started his life in a circle of such love and support.

It's late and I'm sleepy, so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. As you can see, it was a wonderful weekend! (And worth every mile of the drive...)
