Everly's Eleventh Month

Everly started walking this month!
She must be eager to catch up to her sisters.
She also had her baby blessing ceremony at our house.
I will write a whole separate post with those pics.
She's getting so big so fast!
slow down E!

I have a pic of Penelope pushing violet in this same stroller

A blessed baby

Today was a super special day.
We dedicated our youngest daughter, Everly Elle to Jesus.
There was a sweet ceremony followed by gumbo and more sweets.
This dedication was similar to the one we held for Violet Mae.
One of our previous pastors, Jim Firth- who is also a great friend of ours conducted the ceremony and blessing.
He also led the guests in some hymns.
The children's pastor- Cosy del Carlo shared a passage, I sang a special song, James prayed a father's blessing and her godparents, Brian and Erin Beck shared a scripture.
It was so fun and so special.
The decor and theme for the event was "rustic shabby chic"
enjoy the pic(k)s!
