Seymore Family

Ever since I saw this picture I've wanted to take photos in a cotton field.  Dreamy right?!!  This photo shoot was a wish come true and I'm really pleased with how they turned out.  I've taken pictures of the Seymore family every year and they are such a photogenic little family.

five senses

The other day we had some rain and the girls begged to play in it.  Pure joy.

The temple lights.  Every year.

Pandora holiday music.  Michael Buble Holiday, Indigo Holiday,  and Mindy Gledhill Holiday.  Do you have any favorites this time of year?

Lots of soups.  This one is a good one.  I've made about 6 soup recipes from this site and they're all delicious.

Little Rupert as much as possible.  He's been sucking his thumb every day now.

The goji berry candle.  It was my birthday present to myself.  Smells divine.

Rupert's blessing day

Today was Rupert's baby blessing.  He is now 10 weeks old and such a wise little soul.  In the circle we were blessed to have Bishop Dan Speakman, President Broc Hiatt (the Stake President), Dad, Chris, James, Garrett, Ammon, Riley Weber, and of course Andrew.  Peter and DJ arrived a minute too late so they missed out.

Andrew gave him a beautiful blessing.  Rupert is loved by Heavenly Father.  He will be strong physically, mentally, and spiritually.  This will help him when he serves his mission.  His family and friends will help him accomplish his goals that will not only bless his life, but those around him.  Those are some of the things I remember being said.

I bore my testimony about how it takes a village to raise a child and my ward and family are my village.  I couldn't raise my children without my support system.  I'm also grateful that Andrew took me to the temple to be sealed for all eternity so my children could be born in the covenant.  My heart is full today.

Andrew snapped these two photos right before church and I'm so glad he did because the blessing outfit was in the wash halfway during church.  Well, it was there when we needed it.  Love this little boy of mine!
