Pumpkin Patch

Today Blake's preschool class got to go to the Pumpkin Patch. When we got there we got to take a hay ride! After the hay ride the kids got a snack of pretzels and "pumpkin juice" while they watched the pig races. Then they got to feed the chickens and goats. And finally, Blake got to pick out his very own pumpkin! He was so funny, he saw the hay pile that the kids play in and ran straight to it. I coaxed him out to find a pumkin. He ran up to the first one he saw(which was the ugliest thing I'd ever seen) and said "ok, here". hahaha I told him to find a prettier one and he picked a better one out. The one in the picture is not his though, he was too busy to take a picture with his! He played on the hay pile with the other kids which had a slide and tunnel. They LOVED it! Last year Chris had to make him get up there and after a while he was fine...but this year as soon as he saw it, he ran straight up to the top! Not scared at all! He is growing up so fast. Here is a comparison of last year and this year, and some other pictures from today.

Kate's baby dedication

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life , in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

Sunday we had Kate's baby dedication at church. It was a very beautiful service. A beautiful song was sang. A Mother's Prayer. Listen here. Kate was such a good girl! She was smiling at Pastor Rick. It was so cute! There was a slide show of all the babies. And a reception to follow. Very special!
Chris and I pray that she will love and trust our Lord as we do. And that one day she also will be a follower of Christ and let him "be the boss of her life" as Pastor Rick says!

A big thanks to Nana and Poppy, Mamaw, and Aunt Holly for coming. It really means a lot to all of us! We love you all!

We didn't get many good pictures, but the church took some, so I'll post more when we get them.

We love you Kate and are so proud of you!

After the dedication we all came to our house for some super good chili and cornbread that Chris made. What a wonderful Sunday!
