Abigail's Baby Blessing

We flew out to Raleigh, North Carolina the end of February to visit Larry's brother Ryan, his wife Kelly, and their newborn baby girl Abigail.

The following Sunday (March 1st) was Abby's blessing. We had hoped to take some pictures in front of the Raleigh North Carolina Temple (which is right next to the chapel where Ryan and Kelly attend church), but it was pouring rain and so we had to settle for indoor pictures. Here are the proud grandparents holding their second grandchild.

The dress which Abby wore is her great-great-great-grandfather's christening dress from 1882. Abby looked gorgeous in it, as you can see in this picture of her with her Uncle Danny.

The youngest two Furr brothers were unable to make the trip (Jamie is away at college and Jordan had to stay home for his high school musical rehearsal), which resulted in the Furr women outnumbering the Furr men for the first time ever.

We are so happy that we were able to share such a special day with our adorable little niece.

She is a beautiful baby! What a wonderful thing for her to be able to wear an antique christening gown. I think Abby looks like Kelly or am I wrong? Anyway, she is darling--cute little girls appear to run in the Furr family.--Granny O

Wow - all boys and now all granddaughters. How wonderful! She is cute as ever, Ryan and Kelly. (She must take after her older cousin, right Ava?)Congratulations on having one of those days that you will remember forever.
