Hamptons Dedication, bday parties and everyday life!!

Catching up or I'm a slacker really should be the name of this blog. I have so much to catch you up on and starting to feel like pics I wanted to post were taken months ago. Our last several weekends have been somewhat busy...starting with a trip to Atl for Kellen's bday party and the next weekend Hampton's dedication and this weekend we stayed around the house but I had the touch of the stomach flu...NO FUN!

Lets start with the bday party. Kellen was turning one and we would not have missed it for the world. He is such a cutie and has the sweetest spirit. My wonderful angel Sarah Scott was so sweet to him. She ran up and hugged him..ok that's sweet...then hugged him so hard she tackled him to the ground, pushed him on the ground and even snatched a few you hear the sarcasm in my voice! We are working on her:) Stephanie put a lot of hard work in to the party and I was a little jealous of her talents. All the decorations SHE did and SHE made the precious cake! I just don't have that in me but she did a wonderful job..check out her blog to see all the was all amazing!
We were able to see the Cobb's and the Tucker's while in Atl and I got some sweet kisses from little Macy Brooks. Ashly has recently started taking pics with another photographer in Atl and seeing her camera and all the fancies on it has developed a new itch for me. I don't have a clue what I am doing when it comes to taking pics but I have a nice camera to get me started as well as Lightroom and CS4 photo programs to snazzy up pics. I told Scott I want a new lens and flash so hopefully that will be in my future!!
Scott has wonderful friends in Atl and I have been very blessed to develop relationships with their wives.

So the next weekend we had Hampton's dedication. I feel like that is such a special time as parents. A time when you bring your child before the church and most importantly before the Lord. You make a commitment to raise your child in the church, with Christian morals and most importantly to love the Lord and follow his Word. I feel that this is the most important gift that we as parents can give to SS and Hamp. The dedication was not done during our normal contemporary service that we attend so we had it during the traditional 11:00 service. Some of our extended family came for support and then we had lunch with family and friends after the service. It was a very special time and Scott and I are very thankful for those that shared in this time with us.
On a side note SS and Hamp looked so cute. They had matching outfits made by Scott's aunt.

As you can see SS was not thrilled to take a picture.

Hampton..we love you and promise to keep our commitment to the Lord to raise you according to Gods word.
Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

So last weekend was a relaxing weekend....which was nice and needed. Sarah Scott has been on an antibx for a sinus infection and Hamp was placed on an antibx on Monday for an ear infection. Both of them have been feeling pretty cruddy lately but we are up and going now.
Here are a few pics taken over the last several weeks of our sweet children. Enjoy and have a great week!
