Dedicated...

Wednesday night, Eli was dedicated at church. This is a time in which we as parents commit to raising our children in a Godly home and do our part to introduce them to Jesus and lead them to the cross. It was a wonderful time and we were able to share it with Jacob, Niki and Thomas, and my parents! Here are some pictures from that night!

This was taken before service. We think the picture turned out great, but were sorry that Jacob couldn't be in it. He was with his mom that day, but they were at service to share with us!

There were quite a few of us having our children dedicated on Wednesday. We're over on the right!

Here's a close-up of the cutie being dedicated. I know...his excitement is just too much! Actually, it was almost 8:00 and he was SOOOO sleepy, but was a champ!


We are so thankful for the children that God has blessed us with! We pray we can be the hands and feet of Jesus as we raise them and that He will lead us as we parent!

"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him" Ps. 127:3
