baby dedications

yesterday was the baby dedications!! everything went well!! here are the pictures!! pastor mike dedicating dustin! so sweet. we had church out in the garage. it was drywalled and revamped and now our church. the basement has become children's church!!

caitlyn had no desire to go by mike. so shaun held her!!

our super cute family!! do you love the outfits?!?! i do. especially because i got them ALL for 44 dollars!! at THE CHILREN'S PLACE. retail value: 137 dollars. whoo hoo. love me some clearance!! i have never noticed just how much the kiddos really do look alike! and do you like how they go in order, A B C D. :0)

my dad and dustin. my dad was always hesitant to hold amelya...then came breigh, caitlyn and now dustin. he has no qualms over holding him. until he poops or cries. :0) i just love the look on dustin's face and my dad's. so precious!!
i just love the pictures! the family picture turned out so cute! i wish i could save it for christmas cards. do you think i could just mail it out now and say happy early merry christmas? yeah, i didn't think so either. but it sounds like a superb idea doesn't it?!?
i don't have much else to say. i have diapers that need to be washed and supper that needs to be thought of. i should really start this whole 'menu plan monday'. maybe that'd get me out of a rut of trying to think of something for supper at five thirty. good thing shaun usually isn't home til well after that. shaun's taking off a few hours tomorrow morning to come to the girls' last dance class. next week is the rehearsal and then next weekend is the recital!!??! i'm SOOO excited for that. i also am excited to have another day with nothing to do. it'll just be mom's group on mondays and story time on wednesdays. and there is only a month or so left for story time as well. ahh summer brings relaxation. well not really. i just don't have to rush out of the house on time.
you know like this morning. i had a poopy diaper on the floor and caitlyn stepped in it. and had poop all over herself, the chair and carpet...about five minutes before we needed to leave! oh dear!!! and yes i know i should just pick the diaper up right away!! no need to tell me that! and i'll probably make sure they're picked up from now on...or at least away from caitlyn!!

13 loving words from you.:

Oh how awesome your day appeared to have been....that family photo DEF. needs to be blown up and framed, my friend....and that's an order!'

I just love Children's Place clearance sales....and I must have spent the gajillion dollars to become one of those members who gets an additional 10 or 15% on top off what ever I saved....rock on for good deals!

And I too am looking forward to winding down this summer.....and a possible visit from a real "neat" friend from the Big Cheese state.

Oh I do love all of the pics! Your family is beautiful! I do think the one with your dad is super precious. Too cute!

Sorry about the poopy messes. Why does it always take twice as long to get out the door as it should?

Take care my sweet friend!
Hope you have a great week!
