Carter's Dedication

As if turning six months old and starting to eat 'solid foods' in a high chair weren't enough, we decided we would dedicate Carter at church too! It was event that no family member missed and Carter's attitude was above par! We are so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with him & although we know that we will not be perfect parents we will strive to raise him in a God-honoring way! After 14 little ones were dedicated (need I say that the ceremony was loud;)) we headed back to our house to celebrate with everyone! An awesome day we'll remember.

The verse that we are praying for him: Jude 24 & 25

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

Oh...& Carter won the cutest hat award. More pics to come!
