Baby Dedication

Our church has a special service once a year for baby dedication. Yesterday, we dedicated Lydia, and prayed that we would honor God as her parents, and do our best to point her towards him. It was special, and although we felt like holding Lydia through the service was like wrestling a gator, it was meaningful. Our pastor prayed over each child individually. We took this picture to look back and remember our commitment, even when parenting is hard.

Weekend in KC

Last weekend, we had a little getaway to Kansas City to visit family and friends. My sis-in-law is a great host, and it was nice and relaxing. We've been burning the candle at both ends lately with home projects (our house is going on the market in the next week or two, more on that later). The kids LOVE their cousins.

The boys slept in a tent in the basement.

The cousins...Lydia looks thrilled, doesn't she?

Hugs and squints

The best we could do to get 5 people smiling for a picture.
