Of course, then it was time to eat. The house was filled with friends, family and food as we celebrated our little miracle. Matt's sister Hilary made a fabulous cake for McKay and he was held ALL DAY (his favorite past time) by so many adoring fans. Special thanks for Adilfa at Don Polo photography for coming through with some special pictures of McKay. I have posted a bad scan of her beautiful pic of him in his blessing outfit. I will try to get better quality stuff up soon. Much love!

What a lovely Sunday it was. Matt gave McKay a beautiful blessing along with a multitude of other priesthood holders that will be significant examples to him in life. It was awesome to see him surrounded by such strength. There have not been many times in my life when I have felt so overcome with gratitude to be somewhere doing something so special. I don't know if it was because we wondered if this day would ever come; I don't know if it was the beautiful gift of understanding and gratitude for his trials Matt gave McKay; or if it was being surrounded by our family that made me literally shake with joy, but it was a wonderful experience I will always remember.
