Rebekah's Dedication

What a glorious day. Today, in front of family and friends, we dedicated Rebekah to the Lord. It was a beautiful ceremony, filled with so much love for our Lord. As always, Rebekah was the perfect angle. It was amazing to watch her little face as Pastor spoke of our family's commitment to the Lord and her. It was as if she was affirming every single word. Oh how strong the presence of the Lord was. I pray that presence will continue to surround little Rebekah all the days of her life. That she will be blessed with a close and loving relationship with Jesus everyday. And that she will always know what a blessing and miracle she is to our family. I thank God for her everyday.

Wonderful Day

What a wonderful day the girls and I had. We woke up to a blanket of snow. Not my idea of the best weather for April, but it was beautiful. The girls and I actually finished out morning chores early and enjoyed a breakfast of warm blueberry muffins. Yummy! School even went off without a hitch. Hannah's reading is coming along amazingly. I am so proud of her.

The girls spent the afternoon having tea parties with their American Girl Dolls, while I finished a sewing a skirt I cut out last night. It turned out quite well for a novice sewer.

Sarah made lasagna for dinner. She did a great job. It was so good. She is becoming quite the little cook. She served it with grilled garlic toast, salad, and brownies for dessert.

We are supposed to get another 6 inches of snow tonight, so we are all bundled in with the wood stove roaring. Now to join the family for a game of Blockus.
