It’s Sunday. Surely Sunday should be a day of rest from blogging. Well, for me, blogging is resting. As a sahm you don’t get a lot 0f (any!) alone time. When I’m online, even if I’m wearing my pjs, cooking and listeining to my daughter play, I’m alone.
Wow, I don’t know where that came from! I’m supposed to be writing another party blog for the UBP from 5m4m. (It was too long to type.) I’m having a hard time because I really want to share some parties that I CANNOT find the pictures to. One of them being my wedding pictures—how do you misplace your wedding pictures? Well, wait till you see mine and you’ll understand.
Today I’m debating between 2 parties–a costume party (actually 2 costume parties) or Lydia’s dedication. Hmm…being that it’s Sunday…I’m not trying to be super-spiritual, but I think the dedication would be appropriate.
It really was cool. Lydia got dedicated at her grandfather’s church (my dh’s dad) along with her 2 cousins, Judah (2) & Bryar (3 months younger than Lydia). Judah & Bryar’s parents, my dh’s sister & bil have lived in Chicago almost their whole married life and they just moved to Mexico to be missionaries this year. So, to have this day with them is very special.
For some stupid-internet-wordpress-iphoto-user-error reason I can’t get all the pictures I want on here. But here’s one of my beautiful girl. So, she looks a little like a milk maid–a very cute milk maid.
I know this isn’t really a party per se, but it was a celebration of Lydia’s life. Not just being born, but of what my family and I desire for her life. As a Christian, I want Lydia to grow up loving and knowing God. I want her to be a confident, loving, selfless girl. This dedication was our chance to show our family, friends and God that we are actively trying to raise our daughter to love and honor God. So, for me, that is a reason to celebrate!
Tomorrow, I promise, even if I have to drive to my parents house, there will be wedding pictures. You HAVE GOT to see these!
