Caleb's Dedication

A dedication is an important step in our family. For non-denominational Christians it takes place of a baptism for infants. The parents get up in front of their friends and family to say they will raise this baby (or little child) to believe in Christ and God, take him or her to Sunday school and to lead them in a Godly walk. They ask the people that attend to help the parents on that journey, also.

On September 15 we dedicated Caleb. Elijah was dedicated in 2008. I never posted about it, but I made a layout  and my Mother-in-law blogged about it.

It was on a Saturday morning, so we got all dressed up and ready to head out. I don't know about you, but I love a little boy in a dress shirt and tie. Two of them makes me doubly happy, especially since they are my own.

Caleb is a ham. Pull out a camera and he loves it... He even loves to pose. This was while we were waiting for everything to start, at the church.

Then he realized he was sitting on stairs... It was over... stairs trump picture taking.

 It was a nice ceremony.

 This was only half of the parents that were dedicating that day. There were approximately 8 more families that went before our group.

After the dedication was over we headed to the Boulevard Diner for some lunch. All the food was so good.

What a great day filled with family and friends for a very special occasion.
