Braxton's Blessing

My heart is so full of gratitude to my Father in Heaven. I don't mean to get all churchy on you but I have had such a wonderful weekend and want to share my feelings. We blessed Braxton on Sunday and it made me reflect back on the road of getting him here. It was a rough one as most of you know. I am so grateful for the power of prayer and for all of you that prayed for us during that time. I can't imagine not having his special spirit in our home. We love him so much and he can always make us smile. The day went great and he behaved perfectly during his blessing. Ryan did such an amazing job and my kids are so lucky to have such a great dad! My mom and dad were able to come down and spend the weekend with us and it was so much fun. It is the first time my dad has been able to come so it really meant a lot to me to have them here. I wish my sister's and their families could have been there but I know they were thinking about us even though they were not able to come. Aaron was at a wedding in California so we missed him too. Ryan's parents, sister, and grandparents were also there to support us. It was such a great day! Of course Braxton looked as handsome as ever and the girls were so proud of their little brother. I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have such amazing kids and husband. I love my family(even my in-laws)and I am so grateful for their love and support in my life.
