Canyon's blessing

We blessed Canyon at church quite a few Fridays ago (but I'm just getting around to posting about it).
My Dad was in town.  
We missed having other family (a lot, and still do), but enjoyed a beautifully simple blessing with just Dad, Grandpa and our branch President.

and the attire?
He's got a lot of Asher's hand-me-downs.
But this time we decided to buy something for him to wear that's all his own.
with a touch of Arabia
and the crisp white fabric that seems to be appropriate for important church things.
I thought it was cute.
plus it was tailor made just for him and small enough to fit (he was 3 weeks old when we blessed him and still at the stage where 0-3 month stuff looks huge on him--- ahhh, those days don't last long)

Ivy was blessed in the same dress that I was blessed in as a baby, 
maybe Canyon will pass this along to his sons someday.

or maybe they'll think it's too much like a dress.
I still think it's cute.


  1. I love it! I think it looks awesome! Missed you in Rexburg!

  2. I love the Arabian outfit, and he looks so cute, what a photogenic little guy.

  3. He's getting so big! An he does have strawberry blonde hair, have his eyes changed color? He looks like Asher.

  4. That's so funny, I think Canyon and Link look alike too, or not just that, but they look different from their siblings in the same way, right?
    I love the outifit, I think its so nice to have a little piece of his birth place involved. We blessed Lije in Hungarian for that reason.
    And cute pics of Ivy's bday, she is so so beautiful (like her mom).

  5. Toria!! What a GORGEOUS baby!! I just love his cute little face. I love the blessing outfit. Perfect for him to remember where he was born. I just love it and I miss you. Let's chat on the phone soon!! Darcy

  6. Love the blessing outfit. The pictures are great.

  7. He is too cute! Honestly you have the most photogenic children! The outfit is perfect too.

  8. toria - love the outfit. I am looking for something perfect for Ezra to wear to his blessing. We're doing it at the commune in July. What else is there for boys besides those silly white tuxes tha!
    I see?

    Also, love the red hair!

  9. Canyon looks so adorable. I just want to squeeze him! Love his white wear.

  10. I love the touch of Arabia. Men have so few dress up options -- Middle Eastern men seem to have embraced more diversity. Would that it would trickle back into the fashions of American men -- Kirk would love it!
