Carson's Dedication

I Samuel 1:27-28
I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life, he will be given over to the Lord.

On Sunday, November 9th, 2009, Carson was dedicated at Fellowship Church. We had a wonderful day celebrating our faith and our commitment to raising our kids in a Christ centered home. The ceremony was very sweet. One of the teaching pastors shared words of wisdom about the journey and blessing of parenthood. Then each family came to the front of the congregation and prayed a prayer promising that we will bring Carson up to know the Lord. They even gave Carson his own Bible. It was a wonderful to day to be Carson's mom. Carson's Godmother, Jaime, came to celebrate with us and she brought her daughter, Kaitlyn as well. Alex was thrilled to have a friend there because she could have cared less about what was going on. It was too funny. Any room filled with 100+ babies and parents trying to keep them quiet for over 5 minutes is tragic. Here are pictures from our day:

Our blessed, blessed family
Daddy in heaven,
Thank you for the beautiful children you have blessed our family with. We will do our best to raise them in your will and in your presence. You have given us the two most amazing masterpieces. We will love them as you love us.
