Betsy's Baby Dedication 4.23.2017

One week after Easter, we welcomed our family to Dallas to celebrate Betsy's dedication at our church.  It was so fun to have so many people who love Betsy all together to celebrate her.  I think there will be a lot of that in her future as she is one loved little girl!

Melanie, Clark, and Porter drove up on Saturday and spent the afternoon and night with us, which was so fun!  Betsy and I haven't seen Porter since going to the hospital when he was born, and Austin had not met him yet, so having them here was just wonderful.  The first of many fun times for these cute little cousins, I hope.

My Grandma and Pawpaw, Austin's parents, and Austin's sister and BIL also came into town on Saturday, and they all came over to visit for a while that afternoon.  Betsy was her usual angelic self, and I think she loved all the attention!

Betsy and Porter got to take their Saturday night bath together, and Melanie and I about died over how adorable they were.  We will be together again soon for Porter's baby dedication and then later this summer for the Fourth of July, so there are definitely more cousin baths ahead for these two.  Their matching tubs and hooded towels... I die!

Sunday was a bit hectic with lunch preparations and getting everyone out the door for church and trying to let the babies have a bit of a nap before the service and lunch, but we did it!  What a special day to have both sets of Betsy's grandparents, two sets of her great-grandparents, all four of her aunts, both of her uncles, and her one sweet cousin there on Sunday to celebrate us dedicating her to the Lord and promising to teach her about God's immeasurable love for her.  We pray that she will come to know Christ as her personal Lord and Savior early in her life.

After church we had everyone over for lunch, and I definitely wish we would have been able to take more pictures with everyone who came to celebrate with us (I didn't even get a picture of the back of Betsy's bonnet -- it has the most gorgeous monogram on it!), but it was fun just all being together and eating some yummy food.  I also didn't get any pictures of the food, but for my memory's sake, we served snacky foods: ham with rolls and a few types of cheese and sauces, deviled eggs, veggies with Mr. B's, corn dip and chips, fruit salad, broccoli slaw, and Society Bakery petit fours.

We are so thankful for all of our family members who traveled to be here on this special day for our family.  We love you all!
