Halle's Dedication

Our little Halle Grace was dedicated last Sunday, January 11.  What a sweet time it was...Grammie & Auntie Amber were there, Auntie Pam, Uncle Brett & Halle's cousins....Colby, Jessica & Jada.  Nana & Papa, Uncle Daniel, Auntie Lisa cousins Eden & Hayden, Auntie Heather, Uncle Shaun & Auntie Leah all came to see Halle!!  We sure felt special!!  Not to mention all of our church family.  Baby dedications are so near and dear to my heart.  That and Children's Christmas programs...they get to me everytime.  I so longed to have a child to dedicate to our Lord Jesus for so long.  I have sat through so many dedications and each time I cry...what a tremendous responsibility we have to raise Halle in the fear and admonition of our Lord Jesus.  We want her to know who our Jesus is and to love Him as we do....we pray daily that at a young age she would come to know JESUS!!  What a sweet day that will be!  After the dedication we went to Grammie's house so Halle could have lunch and then we went out for lunch...Halle was a good girl and slept almost the entire time...Jada kept her company sitting right by her car seat!  Let me tell you, Halle looked BEAUTIFUL in her little red silk (yes, silk I said, Grammie bought it for her) dress from Gymboree with matching shoes & headband.  Nana made her the cutest sweater to wear with it and to top it all of...she wore her bracelet from her Birth Mommy.  I cried when I put it on her, how special!  I know that her Birth Mommy would love so much that she wore it.......we sent her a picture so she could see Halle on her special day!!  Here are some pictures...minus Halle!!
