My Dedication - 11/23/08

On Sunday, Mommy and Daddy dedicated me to the church.  They feel that it is very important that I learn about Jesus at a very young age.  They chose Psalm 71:17-18 as my life verse:
17 Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, 
and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
18 Even when I am old and gray,
do not forsake me, O God,
till I declare your power to the next generation,
your might to all who are to come.
Wow, I have a lot to learn, but Mommy and Daddy have promised to help me along the way.

Both of my grandmothers wanted to make this a special day for me.  They both spent countless hours making me pretty things for my dedication that I can pass down to the generations to come.  Grandmother Lou made my dress for me.  Here is us together before the service:
Gangi wove a blanket for me.  I was sad I couldn't wear it during the dedication, but it would have covered up my dress :(
Here is Mommy and me right before the service (I was kind of nervous).
Here is all of us during the dedication.  Look how pretty my dress is:
I was so good during the service.  I sat in my daddy's lap and didn't make a peep until the service was over.  Everyone was impressed with how good I was!

After the service, Mommy cooked lunch for everyone at my house.  Great Aunt Nancy, Uncle Josh, Uncle Jared, Aunt Stefanie, and cousin Gracen came for lunch.  Gracen and I jumped for awhile in our Johnny Jump Ups, but I got really tired from my morning, so I crashed.  

I know we didn't really get many good pictures of me in my dress and blanket, so Mommy and Grandmother Lou are going to take me to the photographer soon.  

Tomorrow we are celebrating Thanksgiving with the Rawlinsons and Thursday we will be at the Housholders.  I am so thankful for all my family and how much they love me!  I have so much to be thankful for.  I can't wait until next year when I can actually eat turkey!
