Eden's Big Day

On May 27 (Sunday), Eden turned one month old! She has changed so much in that little amount of time. Our lives have changed a bit too! On her one-month birthday she received a name and a blessing at church. Phil pronounced a beautiful blessing for Eden. My mom knows shorthand so she was able to record it and then type it out for us. It was brief but very wonderful. A couple of women who work with Phil came for the blessing and that was especially nice (along with having mom there of course!).

I made a white dress for Eden. As it turned out, there was exactly enough fabric left over from my wedding gown (which my mom and I made) to make a dress for Eden. It is very simple but I like it and especially like that it has sentimental value (and that it was FREE!). My grandmother sent a beautiful white afghan for the big event as well (as did my dear friend Charlotte and Phil's cousin Gail).

It was a very nice day.

Heidi, I don't know if you remember me or not, but Amanda (Litchford) Cram told me about your blog. I visit her blog often. I was so happy to hear that you and Phil are happily married and now this beautiful Eden. Congratulations! I also just got married on Dec. 30 of last year. My blog is http://petersenacres.blogspot.com/ It is so fun to hear what you are doing. It has been way too long. Oh, I forgot to tell you. This is
Jodi (Harris) Petersen. I used to live across the street from you in the town houses in Logan.
