Baby Blessing

IMG_2954

In our faith, shortly after babies are born, they are given a blessing at church. On Sunday, January 21, David was blessed. Family and friends joined us for this event, and afterwards we hosted a luncheon at our house. We set up folding tables in our basement to accommodate the 20+ family members and friends who joined us. We even used the ping pong table as a dining table (that was John’s good idea!). We had a wonderful time celebrating this little boy, and we’re so thankful to those who came to celebrate with us.

John’s parents were able to come for the weekend. We appreciate them making the long drive from Iowa. While they were here, we went on a beautiful walk through Murphy’s Farm in Harper’s Ferry. We walked to one of the viewpoints of the Shenandoah River. The sun was beginning to set and the view was stunning. Even though it was January, the weather was amazing. It was 60 degrees outside. John took the incredible picture below. It truly captures the beauty of West Virginia.
