Avery's Blessing Day

Avery was blessed by her daddy on Sunday. He gave her a beautiful blessing and she was so good for it! She wore this blessing dress that my great great grandmother made 106 years ago! My mom, Sophie, and I were all blessed in it as well. It's beautiful!

Three generations of girls


We had a lot of family come support us on this special day.

Avery's cousin Gabe was also blessed by his daddy Peter in a beautiful Belgian lace outfit Peter and Abby bought when they were in Belgium a few years ago. Here are all the men who made up the circle.


This is with Abby's sister's family.

What a lucky girl to have such an amazing daddy! I love this man!

And I love these girls! I am so lucky to have all 3 of them!

How special that you all could be blessed in the same dress. 106 years old. That is AMAZING! You have such a beautiful family Becky. When I see posts like you have today I miss you guys so much. I am going to have to make a visit to see you soon since I will only be 1 days drive away from you once we move after the 1st of the year.

Check out Sophie's smile in that last pic- classic! It was such a fun weekend, and we've definitely missed having everyone around. :( Thanks for making the trip so many times! We love having you so close.

Joseph you look like such a proud father in that last picture. You should be because your girls are beautiful! The dress Avery wore is gorgeous! It's amazing to me that it was made 106 years ago. What a wonderful tradition.

Avery's dress is beautiful and you look fantastic! I can hardly believe that it feels just like yesterday that you were pregnant!
