Danielle's Special Day

We blessed Dani on Sunday August 7.Kory did an amazing job on her blessing. We had so many of our loved ones there both at the blessing and at our home for a picnic after the blessing. We thank you all for coming and supporting us on this important day!

Miss Dani in her dress
Her dress was given to her by her Grandmother Julie (my mom) we had intentions of making one but I was really hesitant about my skills in that area, I didn't want it to be discouraging. I felt a lot of pressure so I put it off, luckily my mom came to the rescue and got her this beautiful dress. I added the leftover flowers from her baby shower. The beads where ones I was given that belonged to Kory's grandmother. She was so beautiful in her dress!
The shoes were mine when I was a baby. I was so happy that they fit her, and that they fit the dress style as well. The lace is a tad dated but I hear lace is making a comeback. So all in all they went well together. Our growing family: This is our ONLY family picture since she has joined us, kinda a sad one at that. (I am hoping the ones from Grandma and Grandpa Anderson's 50th turned out better)

We also had Wendy's family there, and Kristine's family, but they were no where to be found when I got out the camera.Kory's brother Rich also came to the blessing. So thanks to all who came and supported us!

The after party :)

She was so happy to get that dress off! She just sat and kicked her legs and laughed and smiled.
Axel wanted to join in the pictures and was giving her huggies (that is what he calls hugs)
This bonnet came with the dress, I think she hated it as much as her dad did.
No mom just tried to give her a kiss. Could she be more offended
Sweet it bad I used Photoshop to take out all his grime off his face and the giant scrape on his forehead?
This is my favorite picture of them all! I love my kids.

she looks so sweet in her dress and lace is totally making a comeback (for reals), the shoes were perfect! And i'm glad you left off the bonnet too. :) It was a fun day, glad we could be a part of it.

Kory...I always knew you'd make a great dad! What beautiful kids you guys have. --Bart Kowallis

Oh my goodness. If I ever get blessed with a daughter I hope she is at least half as cute as Dani. She's gorgeous.

And you are VERY tan. :)

We were so sad to not be able to make it to the blessing! Thank you so much for thinking to invite us! I teach Singing Time in Primary and couldn't miss it. But we'll have you over one day if the stars ever align. I promise....if you're still up for it.

I love dani's face with the bonnet, and your kiss. What a little brat. And I say that lovingly--it's what I call all my children. ;) Kory did an excellent job at the blessing, and you did an excellent job at the picnic. We all were well fed and in good company. I'm always amazed at how much work you guys do with every outing--it's quite amazing.
And Dani's dress was beautiful. She looked adorable with it on. And off. :)
