Blessing Day

This little cutie was officially given a name and a blessing today.

Afterwards we celebrated!

At least most of the time :)

Lots of family and friends came to cuddle with Caitlin, visit with our family, and enjoy the day with us.

(Today made me realize maybe we should never get living room furniture :) might just cramp our party style)

The kids played together

Scott taught Andrew a few tricks

We attempted to chat with everyone... which in the end made me feel like we never really chatted with anyone... but I feel like sometimes that's how parties go when there are a lot of people. I did manage to run around and snap photos of everyone else chatting with one another though :) So I think people had a fun time.

Caitlin continued being her typical dream baby self and floated from person to person until she needed me to feed her or be put down for a nap.

Later on we got a little more cozy once everyone had been fed and we finally had time to sit down (of course by then most people had left :)).

The boys had a good time playing Kinect. Andrew loved just hanging out with the big kids. They were so cute with him and so kind to play with him and let him have turns.

My cousin Jenny brought her awesome camera and took some Smith clan family photos (we've been trying to get one all together FOREVER).

This was my favorite photo.
Andrew loved Scotter this weekend... even more than normal.
I wonder why? ;)

What a fun special day for such an adorable girl! I feel so blessed to be her mom... and not just cause she lets me sleep at night ;) She just has the most precious and sweet little personality. I just can't get enough of her!

I also love this little kiddo. He had so much fun running around, being crazy, and finding lots of people to give him treats, root beer, and ice cream today.

What a happy day!

We are so grateful for the family and friends that were able to come and share today with us!
