Claire’s Blessing Day

With each of my children their blessing day has been so special. This is the first time Josh blessed one of our children in church during sacrament. The other 2 were in our home over conference weekends. Blessing days are so special because you get a glimpse into what Heavenly Father has planned for their future and I always feel the spirit so strong. I’m grateful the gospel gives us these opportunities to come closer to our Heavenly Father and our family. Little Claire is such a joy in our lives and I’m excited to see how her sweet personality will continue to bless the lives around her. During the blessing she was wide awake and her Papa(Josh’s dad) said he was looking up at him with her bright blue eyes.

Her entire outfit has such sentimental meaning, as I dressed her I felt the same warm spirit I felt while dressing Jackson and Lily for their blessing days. It’s emotional and sacred to me. Sundays can be VERY wild and hectic in the morning, but I tried to get everything done the night before so that I could really enjoy the moment with my little baby. She wore the same dress my sisters Leah and Bree and I wore, Lily wore, and my sister’s daughter Amelia wore.

She also wore these knitted shoes Josh’s late aunt Lezlie gave to Lily(and Lily wore).

Lily was given a bracelet to wear by my aunt Joanne, so my mom found this one for Claire that was perfect.

The day was full of family and beautiful weather. I didn’t get a picture of everyone(thanks Whit for the ones you took!), but I’m so grateful to all the family and friends that made it such a great day.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
