family gathered from near and far so that we might give our little emily claire a blessing. mom and dad mcclellan were kind enough to open their home to the forty or so of us, allowing us to bless our little angel in white in a personal and intimate setting surrounded by friends and family. it really was a wonderful experience.
she looks so beautiful. a little more like her mother everyday. far too soon she'll be dressed in white once more as she enters the waters of baptism. and far, far too soon she'll again find herself in white and amber and i will have to watch her as she kneels at the altar in the temple. it brings a tear to my eye to think about. at least we have her for the moment. and thank goodness for pictures that leave me speechless... nearly.
