What an amazing word...Forever!! On Tuesday Sept 2, 2008...(our 11th wedding anniversary) we were able to take our beautiful daughter to the temple to be sealed to us. It was a beautiful day. Maggie was wonderful and the sweet sisters in the temple couldnt get over how beautiful she was. They said she was the sweetest baby and they had a wonderful time with her in the childrens center. Maggie is truly a miracle and she has a special spirit about her. She touches everyones heart!! i cant believe I am her mom! I am so blessed! I am thankful to our friends and family who were there to share this special occasion for our family! I love you all!!

In addition, we gave Maggie a name and a blessing in church yesterday. Scott gave Maggie a beautiful blessing. I am so grateful that I have a husband who honors his priesthood and could give Maggie this wonderful gift. I know the blessing he gave came from our Heavenly Father and was meant especially for Maggie. I am so lucky to be married to such a wonderful guy! It was even more special because Maggie's birthmom and birth grandparents attended the blessing. They were so sweet and excited for Maggie and our family. I am so thankful we have a good relationship with Maggies birth family. They are amazing people and we are lucky to have them as part of our family!!
After church we had a yummy luncheon with our family and friends. Thank you to everyone who brought treats and came to share in our joy. We are blessed beyond measure!!!

You always have the most amazing pics on your blog. I guess it also helps to have the most photogenic daughter :) Sorry we missed the blessing-it sounded like the perfect day. Congrats!
