Ally's Blessing

 Allyson Ann was blessed on Sept. 2, over Labor Day Weekend, in Ben's home ward in Taylorsville, Utah. The kids enjoyed the plane ride out there and we were so happy to spend this special day with all the people we love. Because of our move to Colorado we put off Allyson's blessing a little longer than Landon's and Katelyn's who were about a month old when they were blessed. Allyson was three months old and the great advantage to that is she was very photogenic!

 She was blessed in the same dress that Katelyn was and wore the same little bracelet Aunt Lindsie had made. Once again thank you Grandma Davis for making this beautiful dress for the girls. They both looked so adorable in it.

I'll do another post with some more pics from our trip but I will mention that I was so happy to have FINALLY met my new sister-in-law Hailey. What a lovely woman for my brother Keven to have by his side for eternity. And thank you to Ben's many cousins (and aunts and uncles) for making time to visit with us (especially Whitney for coming and showing off her brand new baby boy--what a cutie!) And THANK YOU Jamie and Ben for coming down--it has been FOREVER since I seen you both. I love you tons. And as always thanks to both of our parents and siblings for coming and celebrating this day with us. It was a crazy fast visit but oh so worth it.

Soccer Clips

Here's just a peek at Landon's soccer practice.

GOAL!! He got his first score in a game and he was very happy about it--as were we:)

And this is what Katelyn is "practicing" during her big brother's soccer practice.
