Blessing.

Sunday was Thomas' blessing day.  What a great day!  The blessing was wonderful, unfortunately the little one wasn't really into it, and screamed the entire time.  How wonderful to be able to see Ben use the Priesthood that he has been given.  I am so grateful for Ben for being worthy to have the Priesthood.  I know that my family can be forever because of it, and for that I am grateful.  I know that my little Thomas just came from our Heavenly Father, and that we can all return to live with Him if we are righteous and endure to the end.  This gives me great peace.  
We are so grateful to have Thomas in our family.  We are now complete.
We missed our family, and wish they could have been there. We know they would have been there if they could have. 
I would like to mention that my dad made Thomas' blessing outfit.  He made it when Jack was born, and we were so excited it fit Thomas.  Thanks dad, you are extraordinary.

He is SOOOOO stinkin' CUTE! He looks the same size as Rowan. You need to put his recent stats up!

So you are really complete then eh? No more future baby Whitakers waiting around??

What a great day and what a perfect little family. It's wonderful that Thomas fit into the outfit. Our guy sure has some big britches to fill.

So sorry we had to miss it! We were at our nephews blessing in Alabama. Love the outfit. WOW - your dad made it? Very impressive!

Very cute pics. Thomas looks like a little cherub in his outfit. How special that your dad was able to make it instead of just buying one off the rack.
