Alexandra Malaika Owuor Blessing Day

Lorna and I had the privilege of flying to Austin Texas on Friday September 4th, to participate in the blessing for "Lexi" on Sunday the 6th of September. This was my first time I got to see and meet my newest grandchild. HAIR! That was my first thought when I saw her. What a beautiful head of hair. Savannah being born bald like her mother was and that led me to believe that Lexi would show up that same way. Nope. Michael was born with a full head of hair so we know who she took after. Needless to say our meeting started off well and remained that way for the rest of our stay. It was good to see them all.

Saturday became a welcome surprise when my son Anthony,Chelsea, and Ethan showed up at the front door. (Anthony had just gotten back from a 6 month military duty in Afghanistan). It was great to have him back on U.S. soil.

My niece, Michelle Card and boyfriend Noe drove in from San Antonio to join in the festivities.

Sunday morning started out pretty early. With a house full of guests, we needed to. Alexandra (Lexi) looked like a beautiful angel, and Savannah a little princess in their matching white dresses.

As you can see Michael is enjoying having yet another sweet daughter to spoil.

After what was a beautiful blessing the day was enjoyed with both family and friends.
