Ava's Blessing Day!

We blessed Ava the first of the month and it has really made me reflect on how blessed I truly am. How lucky I am to have such a sweet little girl in our home so fresh from heaven and beautiful in every way. I didn't know that I could love another baby as much as I love Ellie, but I do.

Her blessing day was perfect. She wore the dress that I was blessed in and looked adorable. We blessed her in our home surrounded by family. It was sweet and intimate and Kyle gave a beautiful blessing. I feel so blessed not only to have a husband that was worthy and able to give the blessing, but to have been able to share this special day with supportive family members from both sides.

I feel like the older I get the deeper emotions I feel both ways. Life gets harder, but also sweeter. Life's not easy, but relationships make it worth it, and its days like this that make it worth living.


  1. Congratulations. Blessing a baby is a pretty surreal experience as a parent. You are right, life does get hard sometimes, and frienships and relationships make it better, easier.

    Hope you guys had a wonderful time with family in town!

  2. Hey! I saw your comment. I want you to know I look at your blog all the time seeing if you've posted again... where are you this summer?

  3. Dear Fransens,

    It's been a while since I have stopped by, but then again, it's been a while since you have blogged.

    I just thought I would let you know that i did a post about being a missionary and thought that since there was a picture of Kyle there, you might like to see it.

    Hope you are well!
