A couple of weeks ago I was having an especially hard time. I was missing my Little D so much that tears spilled over without warning....and of course, right in the middle of Sacrament Meeting, at church, my tears turned to uncontrollable ugly face cry. OH MY!
I left, cried it out, composed myself, then headed back to class.
In Relief Society our wards Young Womens Group came in. They had an announcement. They brought my hubby in with them. I had NO IDEA what was going on. I thought maybe they asked him there to say something or perhaps just for scenery...cause well, he is nice to look at! :)
That is when they unfolded this......
I can't even tell you how much this meant to us! The kids dubbed it our "Family Blanket". We cuddle up under it for our family scripture time. Jake wraps up in it to sleep on his particularly hard nights. We all love to just sit and look at the pictures all over it!
WHAT A GIFT!
There are not many Young Women in our. Only 5, three of which just moved, sadly! They all put in many hours. Pouring through our family blog for the perfect pictures, stitching material together, tying and showing our family so much love! There is no way to adequately express how much we love each one of them...and their leaders (good friends of mine) for this!
I had to share it with you!
The pictures are a bit fuzzy, sorry about that. They really are quite bad, but you will get the idea! What a great gift idea!
The pictures were put into a collage then emailed to a printing place to be printed on fabric! BEAUTIFUL!
San Diego Temple June 2009. The last picture with all of us in it.
A square for Dad.
(Again, I am sorry that my camera acted up! The pictures are perfectly clear on the quilt. The pics I took....not so much!)
A Square for Mom.
A Square for Dawson.
A Square for Twins.
A Square for Mallory.
A Square For Jake.
This gift is what gift giving is all about! I LOVE the amount of love that went into this. We know the girls love our Dawson so much! They all knew him and saw him at least once a week for almost his whole life. We know he loves them so much for every minute they spent trying to help comfort our family!
Thanks again girlies!
We love you!
