Sweet Elle was dedicated at Sam and Audra's church last Sunday and it was such a special, fun morning. She, of course, did wonderfully and was so sweet and adorable all morning. The service was really nice and the lunch Sam and Audra put on after was really delicious and fun. All in all, a wonderful morning!
Here are the proud parents:
Sam, Audra, and Elle during the dedication ceremony. The pastor said the nicest prayer for her.
It was a long service, so I had brought plenty of entertainment for the kids. In retrospect, this may not have been a good thing, as they quickly figured out there were fun things in my bag and were determined to plow through everything. Made for lots of quick play and frantic wrangling for additional crayons, legos, etc. I definitely did not have the best behaved kids there!

Texas weather is so unpredictable, especially in the winter, but this January day was gorgeous, so had the best outdoor picnic after the ceremony. I could have sat outside all day--it was amazing!
Sam and Audra have this swing in their yard that the kids love...
We love you, sweet Elle!
