Cole's big day

It was a stressful and busy day, but the blessing and celebration was a success. It's funny how with each kid it just get crazier and there is just more to do. I was afraid I wasn't even going to be able to hear the blessing because Chloe freaked out the second Darren got up. Thank goodness Aunt Heather saved the day with a piece of gum! After church we got together at Machelle's and had copy cat Cafe Rio pork salads. It was delicious, but I have retired from ever making it again. If I have the craving, I will just go and buy me one!

I'm so grateful Darren was able to give our sweet little Cole a name and a blessing. He really is such a joy to have in our family. We love you so much Cole!



K- so this is how fam pics go. We can't ever get a decent one! Out of the 10 we took, this was the best...SAD!

Congrat!! I bet it's a nice feeling to have your husband bless your kids. I can't wait! Very nice family picture, i hear they are hard to get. But you all look great! You have a very handsome young man.

I was glad you did the blessing at our ward. Cole is such a cutie.
I love the picture. I think when you look back on them some day, the ones that come out goofy are the one's we appreciate more, because they so real. You get to see the personalities in everyone.

I like his blessing outfit.

After Jodie made the Cafe Rio Pork I had to make it too. It is so much work but so good too!

Missy, you have such cute kids! I just happened upon your blog and was amazed at how long you two have been married. Tell your mom I said "hi"! Carol

He is so cute! I have made the cafe rio salad before it just takes way too long, I'm with ya I would rather just go buy it.

Ron said...

Wow. These blogs are great! I'm an "old" Varsity Scout coach of Darren's from when he was a little guy. I can tell you, he liked to throw rocks and make noise all night camp outs. . . no, maybe that was Russel. (They all looked alike to me. ha) Super Family! Ron Swift
