Grace's dedication

We had a very busy weekend at our house because Grace got dedicated on Sunday!

We got some pictures beforehand because I didn't know how long Grace would keep her headband that I made for her on! Plus, I love using our backyard as a back drop for pictures!

At the church waiting for service to start

She was being adorable at the church and charming everyone. Can you believe she's not even 8 months old yet? Everyone always tells us she looks so much older and it makes me sad to agree....

Our church has 8 babies that have been born since December, so they decided to do one big dedication ceremony instead of doing each one individually. It was a very nice ceremony where we dedicated Grace to the Lord and promised to raise her in a Christian household. They showed a video in which each set of parents said their prayer for their baby and then the pastor introduced each family and baby and gave us a small gift. Grace was very fascinated by the gift!

They gave us a beautiful certificate, a story Bible, and a pretty necklace with her initial

After the service, we had all of our family and friends who came over to our house for lunch. I think we had about 16 people! It was so nice of everyone to come and show their support for Grace. We had a great time!!
There were more people hiding behind the camera

It was an exciting and fun weekend!
