jackson's blessing day

Sunday we blessed Jackson. It was a crazy day. I awoke early to get ready for 9am church. Zac left at 6:30 for meetings. Everyone else got ready with little or no fuss at all...even Jackson woke up and ate at the perfect time. According to the schedule he should have slept right through his blessing. I say should because even the best laid plans can go wrong. About 8:20 I got a call from Zac at the church saying that because of icy roads they might be canceling church. WHAT!!! I told me no way they could cancel on us. Everything was going right on schedule. We had people in town for this. Anne was going to sing a duet and Andrew with the primary. I was so excited that Grandma and Grandpa were here to hear them sing. He said he would let me know the final decision. About 8:30 he called back and said that church was still on but to drive VERY carefully.
We got to the church and only about 20 people were there. I guess some had heard that church was cancelled and some just couldn't get there because some of the bridges were closed. It was a nice meeting though. We sang a lot of Christmas songs, had a few speakers and of course blessed Jackson. I would love to say that he was nice and quiet but because the schedule change (they didn't end up starting church until 9:30) Jackson was crying for the first part of his blessing. First Brigg tried to get the binky in his mouth to quiet him but Grandpa Pickle ended up saving the day he shoved the binky in and held it in. Jackson fell right to sleep. Thanks Grandpa! The blessing was so sweet and just perfect.

Look he smiled!
