Baby Dedication

So we had our pastor, Greg Laurie, dedicate little one on Sunday.

I acknowledge to God on a daily basis in prayer that this is His child, not mine. So in essence the dedication doesn't really mean much more than this & so it really isn't a big deal, but yet somehow it felt like a big deal to us.

We were thrilled that our 21 year old & 15 year old joined us & even moreso that they joined us on stage as a family. They felt awkward cuz of the age gap between them & little one.

We worked hard to have a nice get together afterwards. Lots of food prep--I made a prime rib, coleslaw, beans, homemade salsa, & stuffed chicken breasts (that hubby bbq'd) It's usually a 50/50 situation when we make food, but this time hubby was busy doing other stuff while I was working as fast as I could in the kitchen. We had ran out of time on Saturday. We even had one more stop to make (Costco) & they were closed, so we didn't have quite as many dishes as we were planning to.

Hubby & I were shocked to receive gifts & cards at the bbq. We didn't even know cards for baby dedication existed...........we certainly didn't have a get-together to try to get gifts, we were just excited & wanted to share with family & friends in our excitement.

All in all it was a great day. Next Sunday when we go back to church we are supposed to pick up a DVD of the event. I have only 2 photos so far that turned out--there seemed to be lots of technical difficulties on the camera side of things. We brought our camera but forgot to give it to someone to have them take pics for us. Our 21 year old's boyfriend brought his camera but they didn't turn out, all full of lines & blurry. My brother's camera had dead batteries...........I'm hoping someone else will share with us the pics they got............
