Blessing Day



Today was little Rylan Vaughn's blessing day.



We were so blessed to have many loved ones attend.


We just don't get so see parents and grandparents enough!

Rylan had
8 grandparents/great-grandparents
3 aunts
1 uncle
and
4 cousins
in our home today!


Brandon gave Rylan a name and a beautiful blessing at the church.


We spent the afternoon enjoying visiting with family.


And playing with cousins, and cuddling babies.


I wish they could all have stayed longer.


Rylan is so lucky to be born into a family filled with so much love.


And so many good examples to look up to.



We are so grateful to have him in our lives.


I didn't get a single picture of Melissa, Jason and family. We love you too! Thanks for supporting us. And thank you to all of you who were unable to attend, but with us in spirit. It's hard to live so far away from loved ones. We love and miss each of you.

We wish we could be there too! He looks so precious in the pics you took. What luck to have him mess right before the blessing! Looked like you had a great time!
