Ashlyn's Baby Blessing & Thanksgiving

Check Out My Dress! Mommy was blessed in it 22 years ago!

On Wednesday November 22nd, 2006 mom and dad took me to Park City, Utah so that I could get a name and a blessing. It was the first time I got to meet most of my aunts and uncles on the Horspool side too. It was a great time! First off, that afternoon we had a little birthday party for my little cousin Kira who turned 4, and then in the evening I was the center of attention! About 40-50 people came to a condo that Grandpa owns, and we had Bishop Rich (one of Jason's friend's dad) there to preside over it. Dad got a little emotional, during the blessing, what a wimpo but it was good nonetheless. I think mom got a little nervous when dad said that I would be the first of "many" children to come. Only time will tell what that was all about! I was well behaved the whole time, and just looked at daddy without making a sound. Good for me! I get to wear the dress again when I get pictures taken this week! Yay!!!
My pre-Thanksgiving dinner mishap:

For some reason I have a hard time keeping my milk down, I might be eating it too fast, or gulping too much air. I don't think it's anything to worry about, but mom and dad are sure getting sick of it. The day before Thanksgiving I feasted too much, and here are the results for you to see. Daddy caught it all on tape, because prior to the unfortunate event, all my little cousins were givine me sweet little kisses. Enjoy! HAHA!

As you can see here, it's not the first time I've done this. This happened at the Knoebel's and it got all over mom, even down here back. I also projected my spit up far enough to mess up Nate and Mandy's couches and throw pillows! Good thing it was an easy clean up with no stains!

Uncle Mike pukes easy too:

During the time in Park City, my uncle Bryan wanted to make impressions of people's teeth so he could practice making bleaching trays. Everyone seemed to handle it pretty good, except for my uncle Mike. He gags easy, we're just lucky he didn't spit up like I do all the time!!

And The Winner Is....

JASON MARSHALL TANG!! It's just too bad Dad can only say that once though. However, mom and I are still proud of him. Earlier this year he was selected as the national winner for television sports reporting from the Society of Professional Journalists. He also picked up a silver UBEE award from the Utah Broadcasters Association for sports reporting, and a couple 3rd place awards from the Broadcast Education Association for sports reporting and for sports anchoring. Unfortunately he didn't win the competition that would have given him a cash prize and some editing software, but the one's he won will be more valuable for his resume. And though I will always have a special place in my heart for Grand Junction since it's my birth place, we definitely need his resume to be good so we can move on and move up! Congratulations to dad though, and hopefully this won't be the first and last awards he receives!!!
