Jax Blessing

Jax in his outfit on his blessing blanket that my Grandma Lamb makes for the new babies. After I got the twins dressed today. I tried to get pictures.
They were more interested in looking through their church books.
Tonight in our comfy clothes...
Grandpa Rand came to visit for Jax's Blessing.

Getting this baby blessed has been a bit of an ordeal for me. In September I called my brother and asked that he travel to Texas when we bless this new baby. A couple weeks after he made arrangements for him and his wife to come, including someone to watch their 4 kids. We find out that the first Sunday in February is Stake conference. Didn't really work for them to switch to this weekend. But I'm excited I still get to see them next weekend.
We got everyone dressed in their Sunday best. Something we do every week. But today I felt like more work was involved. I bathed Jax and got him dressed in his special clothes. But as the mom I really wanted to HEAR my child's blessing...Today I didn't. Between the microphone being to soft and the twins noise I heard a few words here and there. For all I know Seth gave him an entirely different name. Which I know he wouldn't...that's not the point. I didn't hear the twins blessings very well either as the one that wasn't being blessed was fussing. But I did hear their names and a good portion of their blessings...today I was there but I missed what was important. I know I have complained to my family about this all evening and Seth has tried very hard to correct it. I know its over and there is really nothing I can do to fix it. Seth his written down what he remembers for me. I thought as I was sitting there shushing my kids and hearing nothing that surely they were going to stop, turn up the volume and start again. I can pause my dvr and rewind when I missed something on my favorite tv episode, why not in real life? Then it was over everyone was sitting down and I was....disappointed.

I was wondering if you could hear it - it was really quiet. I'll point it out to Conrad - maybe they can figure out the volume for the next one. Either that or we'll sit in the front row!
