Calista's Blessing Day

We went to Utah for a wedding and ended up blessing Cali on a whim while we were out there. Two of Blaine's brothers and their families were also visiting his parents and helping them move into their new home so we thought we might as well bless Cali while we were with so much family. It worked out great. I was even able to go right out and buy her a blessing dress just hours before it happened (we were in Utah, afterall). Tyson, our nephew, also participated and lucky for us, Blaine's parents new next door neighbor also happens to be their Bishop so after a quick introduction, he called our Bishop and hours later, Cali was blessed in Grandma and Grandpa Allen's home. I must say, it was a little strange to be able to bless her with out taking her to court and the temple like we are used to, but it was beautiful all the same. I am so lucky to have such a great husband who loves his children and is able to give them father's blessings. One thing that Blaine blessed Cali with that stuck out to me was that she would be close to her older siblings and that she would develop a strong relationship with me. Made me cry!
