Forest Kade Blair

"Each family has its own 
special circumstances.
But the gospel of Jesus Christ
addresses every challenge—
which is why we must
teach it to our children."

Elder Robert D. Hales

Baby Blessing - July 21, 2014

Haley gave birth to Forest Kade Blair, our 11th grandchild, on July 18, 2014.  Tom didn't get to be there, but he arrived the following Sunday happy to see his wife and baby doing well.  Tom wasn't here long, but we had a little family gathering providing him with the opportunity to bless the baby during the short time he was here.

We are proud of this little family. Haley was a trooper.  She had been so sick for so long, it was great to have the delivery go so well.  Tom finished basic training at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma and is now receiving his advanced training at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona.  Hopefully they will all be united again soon.  Little Forest is growing like a weed.  He's one month old today.

  1. SO precious. And we debated using the name Kale forever...Ned really loved that. So precious. Babies are the best!

  2. Oops! My mistake, I fixed it. His middle name is Kade.

  3. So fun :). Yeah for babies and for families and for the gospel of Jesus Christ!
