Mother's Day Weekend

Mother's Day was wonderful. I didn't know how it would be for me this year, but I knew having Colson in my arms would be just what I needed! I wasn't as nervous as I was last week, either. ; ) I was sweating a bit, but no one could tell. Ha!

Thank you so so much for your prayers. I am amazed. I felt them all day long. ; )
We were a little worried about how Z would do standing in front of everyone, but he did a great job. Later he asked me why we didn't dedicate Colson in "his" church. Sweet thing.
A few funny things I definitely want to remember...

Z did not want to wear his shoes, so he walked across the stage barefoot. Nice. This was not a battle we wanted to fight that morning. ; )

Minutes before we were to walk on the stage, Jason went to grab a sucker out of my purse in case we needed to "encourage" Z to behave. While he was gone, I suddenly felt this warm liquid dripping down my arm. Colson had spit up all over his shirt, my arm, and the floor. Thankfully a friend ran to the bathroom with both boys and me to clean up.
Just as we walked off the stage, Z turns around and yells, "BYE, G-DADDY!" You just have to laugh sometimes.


Our pastor encouraged us from Deuteronomy 6:6-9. These verses are about impressing GOD's Word on our children's hearts throughout each day.

Jason's side of the fam
I love being a part of this family. ; )
Plus my mom
We missed you, Dad!
Just a few desserts for our amazing moms
Delicious!

Thanks also for your advice about Zach's hair. ; )


O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You!


Psalm 84:12

Hahaha. We dedicated jack at 3 mos, and he was a reflux baby.....ALL down my skirt went the spit up. I was in the bathroom, standing under the dryers. I wouldn't be a baby dedication without that stuff! You guys are a good-looking family!

Great pictures! We dedicated Parker on Sunday as well and right before we entered the service, I flet something warm. He had spit up all over my arm and it was running down my dress. My husband had to make a mad dash to the restroom to get some tissue paper. I wanted to also let you know that I enjoy your blog so much. Your such an inspiration.
