I Did It!

I did it! I quit my job! It was a lot tougher than I had thought it would be, but I finally made the decision and it feels right. I'm really excited about being home with Micah and Abby. I'm super excited about doing Preschool with Micah. I've been doing a little of it since I've been off on maternity leave, but starting in January, I will be doing it twice a week. I'll probably work on potty training Micah too. I'm not looking forward to that.

Anyway, it's an exciting new chapter in my life. Being home has been a lot tougher than I imagined, but I know it will pay off in the long run. I'll really miss my co-workers, who have been my friends for the past 10 years, but I know I will still see them and get to do lunch with them every-once-in-awhile.

Merry Christmas!

Abby's Blessing

Abby was blessed yesterday. Heath gave her a wonderful blessing, which she slept right through. It was a beautiful day and we were grateful to have many family members there to share it with us. It was extra special for Heath because it was also his birthday. What a great gift he was given with the opportunity to bless his daughter.

Here we are on our way to church. Abby looked so pretty and Micah was so handsome.

Here is Abby in her blessing gown. She looked so beautiful all dressed in white. Her dress was a combination of satin and organza fabric. It was really long and had three rosettes across the bodice. We accessorized with a bracelet made of pearls and a big organza bow for her head. She looked so beautiful, I couldn't help but shed some tears as I was dressing her.

Isn't she beautiful?

Here is a full length shot. I saw this dress in a store in Richfield and I fell in love with it, so my mom bought it. It was kind of funny though because Abby hadn't even been born yet.
