Jenson's Blessing Day (5.25.14)

We were so lucky to bless Jenson surrounded by all of our closest friends and all of our family (minus Kryon #weloveourmissionarybrother ) In order to make it easier for everyone we decided to do it later in the day, after church at my dads seminary building (which also made it so my moms house wasn't a total mess either!) 
Babe did an AMAZING job, that was such a neat experience for us.  Another bonus to having it outside of sacrament meeting was the size of the circle- we had all of our brothers and brother n laws (once again minus Kryon) our dads, and my sweet grandpa (and the member of the bishopric, thanks Bro. Fox!!) It seemed huge at the time, but I would't want it any other way!

Jenson Matthew Hunt
Blessed by His Father

Our Father in Heaven, by authority of the Melchizedek Priesthood, which we hold, we take this baby in our arms to give him a name and a blessing.  The name that he will be known throughout his life by and upon the records of the Church is Jenson Matthew Hunt.  At this time, Jenson, we give you a blessing.  We bless you that you will continue to grow and develop as you should, and that you will be strong and that you will be a happy and special child of your Heavenly Father.  We bless you that you may know of His love for you and of your place in His kingdom.  We bless that as you grow and develop that you will be able to have the love and respect for those around you, that you will grow to be a great example to your future younger brothers and sisters and that you will love and respect your parents, especially your mother.  We bless you that you will recognize the sacrifice that she has made to bring you to this world.  We bless you that as you grow through your life, that you will be a worthy priesthood holder and make the decisions that God would have you make.  WE bless you that you will have the desire to serve your Heavenly Father in whatever capacity He needs you to, that you will be able to be a missionary and bring more souls unto His gospel and that some day you will find a righteous woman and take her to the Temple to be sealed as a family.  Jenson, we bless you that you will be strong and healthy and that you will be aware of the love that others have for you.  WE bless you with this and all the things that your Heavenly Father knows that you need and we do so in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

After the blessing we had an amazing luncheon: teriyaki chicken (yummmm), so many types of wonderful salads, jello's, rolls, and amazing desserts! Thanks to everyone who brought something to share!  We hung out and talked {so fun to see and talk to everyone!} then of course took pictures! I have said this before and I'll say it again, I don't know what I would do without my amazing sister Chelsi.  She is so willing to always help out with pictures {she even took our Hunt family pictures later that night since the family was finally all together for the first time in 2 years!} Thank you Chelsi, you are seriously amazing and I can't thank you enough for all the pictures you take for us, and the memories you have captured!  {check her out HERE or HERE}
