Bless that West

Thanks to my little brother Tony who had his missionary farewell (Louisiana), we had a good enough excuse to come to Utah and bless Weston with family and friends. We had a great time and are very grateful for all those family and friends who made the drive to come. The blessing went very well even though Weston cried through the first half of it. He has since been disciplined for his disobedience.

Not sure why he suddenly stopped, but my grandpa Ron had a theory- let me explain. President Boyd K. Packer is in my parents ward and occasionally come to that ward for church. Well he happened to be there on Sunday, so I decided that I had to ask him to be in the circle, which was scarier than proposing or facing me in an Indian leg wrestle. He nodded his head, and it was on. Long story short as Weston was crying, my grandpa opened his eyes and saw President Packer cup West's head and gently bounce it until he was quite. Theory number 2 is that Jay was pinching him.

Here are some shots.

It was a beautiful day and Weston looked so handsome! Thanks for inviting us.

Tyresha said...

Oh Weston, you get more beautiful every day! I miss you already! By the way I like the theory of President Packer holding his hand, that is a precious memory.
