My sweet little Maci was blessed on May 1, 2011. She looked so beautiful and the day was truly perfect! Maci is a naughty little stinker but she was so good on her blessing day and thankfully she didn't cry. My dad told me that during her blessing Dave was holding her so close, even if all the other men had moved their hands, Dave would have been find holding her. I never take a picture of the blessing circle, because even though it would be fun to have I think it causes too much stress. I wish I had gotten more pictures of Maci with those who came to share her special day. I'm usually so good at picture taking (as in I take so many I can easily delete at least half). My dad has not sent me his yet, so hopefully he got a couple more people. With Grandma and Grandpa Steffensen.
I love this baby girl and am so grateful I get to be her Mom!
Silly family pictures are the best. I think for the next ten-ish years I am only going to have those hanging on the wall. At least then when no one is looking at the camera it looks like it is on purpose!
Allie and Detmer picked out our seats in the second row. I agreed because I knew they would love seeing Maci as she was being blessed and right after. Dave held her most of the meeting as she slept.
Hopefully I remember everyone in her circle:
