Hello family and friends. We had the wonderful oppurtunity to bless Eli last sunday March 30th. He slept through the entire blessing luckily and decided to leave his mouth wide open the whole time. He looked sharp in his white shirt and red tie with khaki pants. We decided not to do the traditional all white dress, we figured we might as well get him an outfit he can wear for awhile and save the thirty bucks. Maybe for the girls it is ok but we went for the missionary look. Maybe it is just me but it seems like what the baby is wearing has become more important than the blessing. Anyway, I will step down off my soap box now. It was a wonderful day and we were glad to have the grandparents and other family there to support Eli. I wish the rest of the family lived closer but with gas prices the way they are it is such a financial burden to travel. We thought of you all and maybe someday we will be closer together as soon as you realize that Utah is the greatest place to live.
