Charlie's Blessing

John mans the fryer.

We blessed Charlie on March the 7th. He was a good boy and didn't cry or anything. John said he did stick his tongue out at him the whole time though. We had a little dinner at our house in Brigham. In all the craziness I forgot to get some of the pictures of Charlie with people I wanted... oh well. That's what happens when you throw the party, you're in the kitchen, right? My aunts brought my Grandma and Grandpa Christensen up from Orem, and many friends & family members came down from Logan. John's brother and his family came up from Provo - so Charlie had a lot of love and support there for him.

I decided that it would be a great idea to make all finger foods, since most of the people would have to eat on plates in their laps. You know how it's a pain when you're trying to cut something without a table? It was a really good idea, but I wished I could have had another oven, and a bigger kitchen, more counter space for using extra hands. It was a bit of a coordination problem - lots of things needing to go in the oven at the same time and be done at the same time. BUT it was super fun to not have to use forks - I'd recommend it for party merriment. Ha.

Great Grandpa Christensen

Great Grandma Christensen... Charlie LOVES her!

Uncle Andrew relenting and holding Charlie. He says he doesn't hold babies.

The lucky few who got table space.

Blessing days are so much fun and it looked like you did a fabulous job. Abby's blessing is coming up soon--maybe you should just come and cook for me! :)

That picture of your grandma christensen (I think that's who it was) holding Charlie is the CUTEST ever! Also I think I am going to have you cater my next party. Are you available for hire??!
