This morning at church (on Mother's Day!) we finally "officially" dedicated the boys. Of course we did that just as the two of us long before they were ever born. But we've finally done it at church too. I know, I know Alex is four years old, and Harrison is almost fifteen months - it was LONG overdue. But better "late" than never!
Alex noticed where the family (Gram, Grandpa & Grandma, and Uncle Field) was sitting right away. Honestly, I think the camera flashes helped to blow their cover! Uncle Field fulfilled his photographer duties fabulously! Alex took turns waving to the family and a friend of his who was sitting in the front row.
We were so proud that Alex shut his eyes during at least PART of the prayer - too bad that was the only time while we were up there that Harrison decided to fuss....
Whew! That went well - no one tripped, or cried, or screamed, or pushed the Pastor's hand off them during the prayer ... no echoing belches, no stinky diapers, no impromptu undressing (not even a stray sock!).At home - after we got back - before the boys had a chance to get their nice clothes messed-up. If you look carefully in the reflection, you can see the sticker on Alex's back from the nursery (with his name). hehehe!Thank you to everyone who supported us today. To everyone in the family who (woke up before the sun did and) drove from out-of-town. To those who congratulated us before or after the service. To those who offered prayers up that we'll be the best godly examples of parents that we can be. To those who've sent us encouraging messages via email, facebook, text messages, etc. ..... Ummm. And thank you to anyone else I just forgot to mention - that includes YOU for taking the time to read this. :)
