I guess 2 parties and a dedication is the new parents version of "four weddings and a funeral"...
Saturday was party marathon. We had sweet Ian's party at 10:00 a.m. What a fun party, and I have to say - a brunch party was PERFECT for the day that turned out to be 109 degrees!!! There were 5 one year olds at this party - all born within a month of eachother - so fun to see them all interact! After we left Ian's Brunch party (monkey themed) - we headed home for a quick lunch, then nap in the car and off to Toluca Lake for Twins Nate and Abby's Monkey party at MY GYM. This was super fun too - fun and interactive, and Tiff (The twins mom) was so smart to save herself the stress of hosting a party at home, and taking the mess ELSEWHERE! After Liam's b-day and party last week, then these two parties this week, I think Liam now considers birthday cake one of the food groups!!! How did I forget my camera at BOTH parties??? Hopefully Kim and Tiff will send me some pics ;)
So - on to the dedication. Sunday we had the child dedication service at church. This is kind of like a baptism/christening - but really where the parents become accountable in front of the congregation for taking the responsibility for bringing up their precious child with the word of god - and the congregation takes responsibility for supporting us etc. etc. it was really cool - there were about 5 other families who also dedicated their children at our service. Kurts grandfather came to watch and got special recognition- which was REALLY awesome!
We didn't get any good pics, the lighting in there is wild - anyway, here is pastor Shawn holding liam - giving him a blessing and Kurt and I standing by (proud parents!)
