evie's dedication

Monday, May 9, 2011

we dedicated evelyn to God at church on mother's day.
it is so important to me and jordan that we raise our girls in a community of believers
that help support us through life.

we chose Philippians 1:9-11 as her life verse
" And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God."

the sweet bonnet evie is wearing was handmade by my MIL, melodie.
payton wore this same outfit when we dedicated her on mother's day three years ago.

iris was dedicated, too. it was a special day for our whole family.

my 3 year old let me straighten her hair! how funny is that?

an hour later we splashed some water on it and the curls returned

big sis helped little sis with her first bath.

little sis cried right when i put her in and then she was relaxed and enjoyed it.


in love

payton has been so sweet to watch with evie-i do have to keep a close eye on her

this is what happens when i leave the room to switch the laundry...evie becomes a human puzzle. (payton was very proud of evie's "hat")

baby can have a real bath now that her umbilical cord came off today

while baby sis sleeps, big sis plays with her new dolly set.
she loves playing with them! nana and grandad bought her a set of magnetic dolls and nana painted and decorated this special box to keep them in. the box was jordan's grandad's and he would keep his oil paints in it. now payton will have it forever.


this was my old stompin' grounds, northwest elementary.
this week is teacher appreciation week and i just want to give a shout out to all the nes teachers and staff, and thank them for all they do for the students. y'all ROCK!
