Samantha's Dedication

Yesterday, we dedicated Samantha at church. It was a pretty meaningful day for us, especially since there was a day when we were not sure that we would be able to bring Samantha home, let alone to church.

The life verse we chose for Samantha is Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Proud parents and the sweet girl

Samantha was one of twelve children who were dedicated at Washington Heights Sunday. It sure was a lot of fun!

Bethany's Birthday

Last weekend, we celebrated Bethany's Birthday with a great party!

Bethany chose a train cake for her birthday!

She turned two!

We weren't really sure about the hat, though...

Chad, on the other hand, was quite sure about his hat!

Bethany got a birthday piggy back ride from Makenna.

Everyone played fun games...

It was a great time with friends,

even Samantha had tons of fun,

and so did everyone else.

Happy birthday, Bethany!
