Melissa tried to join the family in time to see us before we left on our mission. She came almost four weeks early. We were in the MTC and missed the birth. She was born healthy. Last Sunday she received her name and a blessing at church. Grandparents, Bonnie and Dale Romrell, Sabrina, CG O'Malley and their 5 children all came for the blessing. We called them that afternoon on google plus and were able to see all the kids, grand kids and Baby Melissa. Was very busy. The grandchildren could see themselves on the screen and enjoyed making faces. It was so wonderful to visit and see them.
It has been tradition for me to make a quilt for each grandchild when they are born. The mothers picks the fabric. This is Melissa's quilt. I use the star log cabin pattern for each of the quilts. It has been fun to see the different varieties of color combinations there are. Each are unique just like the children are.
