September 16, 2007

This will be a very special day for Ella as it is the day she will formally be dedicated to God at our church, First Baptist Church of Alexandria here in Alexandria, VA. A baby dedication is a ceremony where parents formally and publically declare their dedication to raise their child in the way of the Lord Jesus Christ and profess that their child is a gift from above. We already believed from the day we learned Katie was expecting that Ella had been given to us as a gift from above and publically recognizing such will be a great event.

You all are invited to attend the ceremony if you are in town. It will be a lot of fun to see our Pastor Don introduce her to the entire congregation on the podium right where Katie and I professed our wedding vows (I bet her Momma will have her dressed all cute too!). It is scheduled for 9:30AM at First Baptist Church of Alexandria, 2932 King Street, Alexandria, VA.

You KNOW I'll be there! It will be an awesome experience! And I volunteer to take the pictures, too. It seems that since I sit up front, just about everyone asks me to take pictures of their baby dedications!
