Dedication Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend! We dedicated Addie at church on Sunday and were so blessed to have many of our closest family and friends here to share in the special time with us. A dedication in our church is a time to make a public promise to raise your child in church and teach them about Jesus. It was a sweet time for Brandon and me to declare our intentions for raising our precious baby girl. We feel so blessed to be her parents.


Yummy, black, shiny dress shoes taste delicious! I took this next picture so you could see the adorable bow on the back of the dress. Auntie M. and Mr. Micah gave Addie this dress a little while back. I thought it was perfect for her dedication! So sweet!

Our friends Pete and Jolene dedicated their son, Henry at the same time. It was so sweet to do this together. That is Pete and Henry next B and A. All of the parents and babies....if you click on the picture you can see Addie up close.


This was when Pastor John was praying over Addie. It was a sweet prayer that I will always remember.

It's a little hard to see, but when your baby is dedicated, they put a picture of the baby with his or her name on the screen....
My mom enhanced this photo of the three of us on stage during the dedication...

When the dedication was over, we hosted everyone to our house for a yummy lunch. Addie started to get tired, but she was still so sweet!

My friend Jeanette made these yummy, adorable petit fours for the special day!
Bubbee and Aunt Lindsey...
We were blessed to have my mom and Skip in town for the weekend from Portland, Oregon to share in the special time in Addie's life. Here are some pictures from their visit....


My mom broke her foot last week on a walk! She stepped on a gumball that fell from a tree. She cannot put weight on it for at least 8 weeks and has to wear a boot! Please pray for healing for her foot. Thanks Mom for still coming even though I know it wasn't easy for you!
