Maggie's Blessing

This weekend was Princess Maggie's weekend. We blessed her on Sunday, and it was a really special day. Grandma and Grandpa Shaver and Aunt Meg came for the blessing. We had a great blessing and the Princess didn't let us down.


Maggie was blessed in a very special dress. The dress has been passed down for 4 generations now. Both of her namesakes, her Great Grandma Margaret and my sister/her aunt Margaret, were blessed/Christened in this dress. My Dad and his brothers, as well as, me and my sisters were also blessed in the dress.

Our Family:

Congratulations! Baby Blessings are so special. They are such special spirits and bring us such joy. I know you probably hear this a lot because I did, but they grow up just so fast. But I enjoyed every moment. I hope you do as well. Your kids are so cute, and you guys look so happy. Congrats again. Tell your Family I said HI!

I love the idea of the dress being handed down - very cool! And what a sweet girl you have! All of the pictures make it seem like she's such a good baby - she always looks so chill and mellow!
