Yesterday was also very special because we dedicated Westin to the Lord. We believe I Samuel 1:27-28, "I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord." As our pastor said, we want to parent with our hands open because we know he belongs to the Lord.
Great minds think alike! Elizabeth and I worn the exact same thing! :)
Here is the whole gang. Elizabeth and Joseph and my younger brother Andrew were able to come and so were Cody's parents and my parents. It made the day even more special. (Jason and Katie already go to our church) ;)
After church we headed over to our house for lunch.
Cody and I made stepping stones for our moms. My friend Christina did this when her first son was born and I always loved the idea. We put Westin's foot prints, name and age on them.
My parents got us a picture frame with Westin's name and dedication date engraved on it. It also has a Bible verse on the bottom. Luke 2:40, "And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him." What a great verse to pray over Westin's life.
Westin's great-grandparents, GiGi and Papa gave him his first Bible.
Since my parents and Cody's parents were here for the weekend we got a lot done around the yard. We also went to a craft fair where I got this metal flower for my door.
