Klara Beth’s Blessing

On July 28, 2013 our little miss Klara was blessed by her Great Papa Alvin! I can’t remember if I’ve openly shared here on the blog that we’re LDS (aka Mormon) but if I haven’t, well, we are. :) In the LDS church new babies are given a blessing sometime shortly after birth where they are ‘given a name’, aka added to the church records as being born to their mom and dad and given a special blessing for the beginning of their life.

Klara's Blessing

We held Klara’s blessing at my parents’ home the day after the Luna Pioneer Days celebration. In case you haven’t read Our Love Story Part 1 ;), Nate and I met at the Luna Rodeo Dance when we were kids. So I think it was fitting to have Klara blessed that weekend as well!

Her great grandparents, grandparents, most of her aunts and uncles and a few other family members and friends were able to be there and celebrate our little miss with us.

Her beautiful blessing gown was made by a dear family friend. It was a little big (we had her blessing a little sooner than most people wait to do), but it looked so pretty on her. Thanks Marilyn for such a beautiful gift… if you happen to see this. 😉
