We blessed Brooklynn on Sunday at my mom's ward. It was a beautiful day and the blessing was wonderful! We didn't get a lot of pics of Brooklynn in her dress but I think I'm going to have some taken cuz she just looked so cute!
Robbie did a great job at blessing her. It was funny because they announced that I was the mother (using my maiden name) and then saying Brooklynn was going to be blessed by her uncle, Robert Chaffin (not sure where they got that from!!!). My mom had it corrected though.
Robbie blessed her that she would continue to grow strong, blessed that the angels watching over her would remain watching over her (she has many of them), she would be an example to her parents, friends and family, she would find an eternal companion and marry him in the temple and do genealogy work for her ancestors. That's all that I remember. Robbie said there is a lady in my mom's ward that is going to transcribe the blessing and then give it to my mom. I'm excited to see it all again.
We had a lot of friends and family come to support us!! The people in the circle were (for me to remember): Robbie, RJ Arnold (my dad), Grandpa Roland Arnold (my grandpa), Steve Warner (my uncle), Josh Montross (my brother-in-law), Bob Tucker (Robbie's dad), Grandpa Royce MacKay (Robbie's grandpa), Tim Gilson (Robbie's friend), Brian Herbst (family friend).
