My Sister Has A Gift: Knitting (JJ's Blanket)

STUNNING! I love that word. It describes my sisters handiwork so well. Last year she knit my boys sweaters, a hat, and gloves. They were stunning. You know, like you open the package and just stare because you've been given something beautiful. Something you could never afford to buy. And it is homemade - Stunning! Well, she's done it again. She made JJ a blanket and yep, it's STUNNING!

Take a look! Thanks Sis, we LOVE it!!

JJ Lee's Baby Blessing

From JJ Lee's Blessing Photos

We had a hard time choosing JJ's name. As members of the LDS faith, when our babies are newborns they are officially given a name and a blessing by one who holds the priesthood (usually their father or grandfather.) We chose JJ's name but we were still unsure how we felt about it up until JJ's blessing day. I told Leif that he could give JJ a different name if he felt inspired to do so while giving him the blessing. I thought he just might do that. But it turns out that Jonathan Jefferson Lee Baron is his official name. He is named after Jonathan in the bible, our good doctor Jonathan Bowman, Thomas Jefferson, and my father Warren Lee Hunt. And we call him JJ. However, Leif occasionally calls him Jeffery and we have been known to call him JJ Lee. So this little one has MANY names. The rest of his blessing was beautiful. I will give more details about it on his personal blog.

Leif's mother made JJ's blessing gown and booties. It turned out perfect!! I was blessed in a crocheted dress and I always wanted one of my kids blessed in a crocheted gown. I knew that I would never be able to choose a pretty white dress again for any of my kids, so I decided a gown for their blessing was just fine.

My parents came down for the blessing as well as my aunt Joann. We all had a yummy lunch together after church and enjoyed each others company.

Don't You Love It When..

  • You lay you're kid's down for the night and you can hear them giggling together and whooshing their planes through the air behind the closed door? Really, I do!
  • Your kindergartner willingly does his homework? LOVE IT!
  • You find a moment to sit on the couch and read The Magic Tree house with the little ones? Priceless!
  • Your hubby comes home after a long day and you snuggle in bed together, update, read a book, and snuggle some more. Sappy, but Lovely!
  • You finish a project that has taken you FOREVER to finish! Gotta Love It!
Yep! I Love it when they happen!
