Ok...now about this weekend. We were so excited to have family come visit from all over for Addison's blessing! Ryan's sister Mindy and her family came from Colorado. We couldn't BELIEVE how big that the kids were getting...especially little Griffin and Ella. It's crazy how much they have changed even since Christmas! My family and grandparents on both the Prince and Heath side--along with my Aunt Laura and her cute daughter Nevaeh came down from Canada. Ry's Brother Spencer and his girlfriend Kellie came from Utah as well. It was so good to see all of them. Thanks for coming down guys...and for making the long trips (Ry and I think they are torture...and we haven't even tried going anywhere with a baby yet!).
Friday was our day with the Bell family. We had lunch together, then I stayed and hung out while Ryan went back to work until six. Addie loved meeting her cousins Izzy and Ella especially. If she was crying, she would usually calm down when they came around. Both girls did such a great job helping to take care of her! For dinner, Mindy made a BBQ chicken pizza...from scratch (crust and everything!). It was amazing.
Saturday morning Ryan, Addison, and I had family pictures. Mindy got some adorable shots of Addie...I can't wait until they are ready! That afternoon was the big BABY SHOWER! It turned out really well...we had a great time, and Addison got some really cute stuff! Afterward, my family came over to our apartment for a while, then we went shopping, and hot tubbing at my parent's hotel. Addie was so tired from all of the attention that she slept better than ever before...she only woke up twice during the night!
Sunday morning, we had Addison blessed. Ryan was so nervous to give the blessing, but he did an awesome job. Of course both of us had the waterworks going before we even started. She wore the dress I was blessed in....and surprisingly it was a perfect fit! I am so grateful for our sweet daughter. We love her so much...she is so perfect-- and I know all of our extended family love her as well... everyone kept fighting over her the time!
Of course I forgot to take pictures the entire weekend--smart huh. All except for Sunday afternoon when we went down to the Greenbelt with the Prince family. There is a slideshow of the pics from that below. I'll have to be sure to get pictures from everyone else!
