Sunday we drove home and then that evening we were able to bless Mercedes at Kendall's parents' house. We decided to just have a very small, non-traditional blessing, since this was the only time my dad would be able to be a part of it. We only had our immediate families there and the grandparents that were able to attend. It was very relaxed, which was a nice change. Kendall gave a beautiful blessing and Mercedes just slept through the whole thing as well as dinner afterward. But she looked beautiful.
(Talmage is not in the picture because he was still really sick with a very high fever, so Grandma stayed home with him so he didn't get everyone else sick. It's been 5 weeks since Mercedes was born and we still don't have a picture with all five of us. It's too difficult to get us to all look decent at the same time. :) I guess that is life with 3 kids.)
