Today was Larkin's blessing day!! It was so nice to have Grandma and Grandpa Nielsen with us.
Here's Grandma and Grandpa Nielsen with all the kidlets.
What a little Daddies Girl...
But only Mama can get the best smiles out of Larkin!
Such proud parents. (Aaron thinks he looks like the old man in that old time picture...the one where he is holding a pitch fork. Funny!)
My favorite thing about this picture is Joshua...so laid back!! That's just exactly how he has been about getting his spot as "baby" in the family replaced by a littler baby! Noah was so excited to see Larkin in her white "princess "(dress) this morning. He said she was so beautiful!
Grandpa Willy and Daddy with the new little princess!
This is my favorite little picture of Larkin thus far. This is one of the sweet little faces that she makes all the time. Grandma Nielsen thinks she was born looking very wise...we'll have to see!

Larkin's blessing was really neat. Aaron blessed that she would be a compassionate person...especially when dealing with her own children. She was also blessed with a good sense of humor...Aaron said, "Uh oh...she's gonna need compassion and a sense of humor when dealing with her children because they are gonna be BAD!" Let's hope not too bad :) I didn't catch the rest of the blessing because a little Josha decided to be bad and I had to chase him and keep him from joining the blessing circle!

It was a really great blessing. These are fun pictures. The bottom one of Larkin looks a lot like Arwen to me. So sweet!

She surely is a little princess in her beautiful dress. So many cute pictures. I'm so excited to see those crazy kids. I can see a resemblance in that last picture. It's so neat to think about the different spirits that come to our family and what they will add. She's so sweet!
