Baby Ford's Blessing

Ford with his namesake, S.R.D. on his special day

Last Sunday was a special day for our family.
We blessed baby Ford with every single member of his family there!  
It is very rare that we would have everyone in town, 
so we knew we had to take advantage of that and do his blessing a bit early.
After the blessing we all headed back to my parents for some great food and sweet treats!
It was the perfect day.
I loved looking around and being surrounded by our family.

My Dad gave Dan a bag of rolled up Ford shirts to pass out instead of cigars.
With all of us together on Sunday, it was the perfect opportunity to get this photo.
All the men in Ford's life.
(no, we did not name him after the car, just a play on words :)

I wanted to keep things fairly simple, since I was just a little over three weeks out.
I made labels for the food and dessert, printed up some photos of Ford, and used banners and straws from my baby shower.
It all turned out great, and most importantly the food was amazing!

I don't eat burgers myself,
but we found it appropriate to celebrate our baby boy with mini burgers.
The Davis' love a good burger so it was the perfect accent to all the salads.

Mexican Coke, my favorite!

I came across your blog through some mutual friends and I just had to tell you your father in law was our bishop in LA. We loved him! Him and Julie are great people. Your blog, house and fam are all darling.
