November 15, 2009 was a huge day in Lorelai's life: that is the day that we dedicated her to the Lord! What this means is that Matt and I got up in front of our church (and our family) and promised to raise Lorelai in a Christian household and to teach her Christian values both through studying and learning and by example. She didn't get baptised or anything like that, it is more of a promise from us to her. What an awesome thing to be able to get up in front of almost everyone we know and to stand up and say that Jesus is important enough to her that we want our church and family to hold us accountable in raising her in a way that will lead her to the Lord as soon as possible!
Grammy and Pop (Matt's mom and dad)
Gigi and Poppy (My mom and step-dad)
Oma and Opa (My dad and step-mom)
Uncle Bryan and Aunt Missy (Matt's brother and sister-in-law)
Aunt Laura, Uncle Gino and Ben (my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew)
What an amazing amount of people - and so rarely all in one room! The day was amazing, LL did FANTASTIC during her service, and Grammy and Pop hosted a lunch at their house in honor of LL and EVERYONE came! That definitely doesn't happen, EVER! Such a great day, and thanks to Uncle Gino for taking some great pictures for us to remember it by!
