Summer's Big Day

Yesterday we blessed Summer. She looked so sweet in her long white dress. I had it made out of my wedding dress and the lady did an awesome job! I am glad there are talented people out there. It made it special to see her wearing basically a smaller version of the dress I wore when I married her Daddy. Tracy was disappointed that Mike gave her the middle name Daisy. He really wants it to be Bumblebee, or Jazz, or Optimus Prime. Sorry buddy. BTW, he was too busy to get in this family picture.
It was a busy day but a lot of fun. I love when our house is full of people. Especially when we are celebrating someone special. Summer is very blessed (as am I) to have the support and love of so many wonderful friends and family members. It is on special days like this when I especially miss having my mom around, but I am glad I know she will get the opportunity to know Summy and the boys one day.



It was a very long day and we crashed after everyone left. I love this photo of Everett sleeping on Troy. He is Ev's favorite big buddy.

I am sorry we couldn't make it. How wonderful to have Summer's blessing dress made out of your wedding dress. Are you going to put it in a shadow box? She looks so cute! I am glad everything went well.

How precious is that dress and shoes . . . so cute! I can't wait to have a girl one day (fingers crossed). Congrats on the big day!

I am sorry we missed her special day. I was going to call you and let you know we couldn't make it, but forgot! We had the boys Primary Program and they were both so excited we couldn't miss it.
It looks like you had a nice day, and what a beautiful dress, and a great idea to have it made out of your wedding dress.

Hey Leesa! Gorgeous little dress! Sorry we missed the blessing. Sounds like it really went well though. I'll figure out where I had my wedding dress cleaned and preserved. They did a great job. Good luck!
