Danny's Blessing Day

It was the kind of day you want to wrap up and tuck away in a special drawer so you can pull it out to enjoy again later. Danilo gave the blessing in Spanish. Danny's grandma (Nona) had his outfit specially made by a close friend. I was able to share with the congregation the reason why we named him as we did. My Grandpa Achter expressed how meaningful it was to him that I had spoken about his father (Herman Erich). We hosted a major event in our backyard for the first time with family after church. I am so thankful to our families and our ward family who extended their love and congratulations to us on this special day.

Note to self: get a picture of all four members of the Collado family together next time. :)

I'm so glad I decided to peek at your blog this morning! It's been way too long. Congratulations on Danny's blessing! Time is passing so quickly! Those pictures are adorable- everyone looks like they're having a great time! Danny looks handsome! Yes, the family picture IS hard to remember, especially when coordinating everything else- we remembered at the very end of Leesie's, but by then we were all sweaty and Leesie wasn't all "put together" anymore. What can ya do? :) Looks like it was a perfect day! Fun to see, thanks! Love ya!
