Judy and her girls Lacey and Shaylee surprised me at the church on Sunday morning. As we pulled into our parking spot, I looked over and saw Lacey and Judy in their car next to us. I could not believe it. It was the best surprise and I will always be thankful that they came. Judy is my mom Shars sister, so for her to be here meant the world to me! I am so blessed to have Judy and her family in my life.

Well wishes and hopes for the babies

We had such a beautiful weekend. It was filled with friends and family here to support our beautiful twins on their blessing day.
The day could not have been more perfect. The weather was great and the babies were so happy.
Tommy said that right before each of them were blessed, as all of the priesthood holders circled around, each baby grinned ear to ear at Tommy.
Tommy did such a great job on their blessings. Each one was unique and we felt the spirit so strong. He got many compliments on the blessings he gave the babies.

After church, we all headed home to eat some food. We got Rubios to cater our party and we are so glad that we did. Not only was the food excellent, but we didn't have to do a single thing.
We had lunch down by the pool and let the kids swim while we all enjoyed the shade and company of friends and family.
After a few hours, we made our way back to the house for some yummy desserts. We had the house decorated with pictures galore of the twins, some fun banners,block letters with their names on them, and gorgeous flowers. We wanted this day all about the twins and it definitely was.
We also had some pens and "wishes for the baby" cards sitting on the table. Everyone each filled one out for each baby and I will be putting them in their blessing books.

We couldn't have asked for a better day. Their was so much love and support surrounding our family. Many people made the effort to come near and far to be with us. We are so thankful!
Nixon and Cooper are loved!

**thank you Wendie for taking our pictures!
