Ruby's Blessing Day


Ok, so this is out of order, but I thought it was about time to do a post about Ruby's blessing!

We were lucky enough to have some of Dan's family come out for Ruby's blessing. Dan blessed her on June 6th, on her 2 month birthday. The other priesthood holders in the circle were: Blaine (Dan's dad), Wayne (my dad), Jaime (Dan's brother), and friends Heath, Chad, Kelly, Vern (home teacher), Randy, and Bishop Drollinger.

Many family members and friends were there. We felt very lucky and loved. Dan's parents, brother Jamie and his wife Brooke, younger sister Alaina and her little girl Ariah, and grandmother, My mom, dad and grandma, Andy and April. We had great friends there as well!


The "photo shoot" afterwards tested everyone's patience, especially Dan's. My sister Brooke and my mom made Ruby's blessing dress. It is so pretty and was perfect or our little Ruby!

Grandma and Grandpa Ricks' lovin' on their newest grandbaby!
(She has since lost that status - Congrats Justin & Ashley!!)

It was such a great Sunday! Dan and I feel so blessed to have this little girl in our eternal family. She really has brought us so much joy! She is such a doll!

One thing I am bummed about is that we didn't get any pictures with my side of the family. Do you think it would be weird if we dressed Ruby back up in her dress and took more pictures?


I have no words :)

so, I echo Makamae, wish Ira and I could have been there as well... thanks for sharing all of the beautiful pictures and your story.
I too love the last picture of Dan and Ruby, and also loved your photo shoot of the not-so-sleepy Ruby and your fabulous hair the other day...
