Monday Updates . . .

Saturday & Sunday were busy days!
If you read my Saturday post you know I had
big ambitious plans for yard work projects.
When we were leaving Sam's it
started raining a little.
Bob says it looked like we wouldn't
be able to do our yard work.
Wouldn't you know it, the rained stopped
& we were able to get our geraniums planted.
We found geraniums on clearance at Lowe's for 79 cents.
They were a little scrawny, but Sunday we noticed they
had grown quite a bit in 24 hours!

Bob even had time to trim our bushes.
It was too wet to work in the garden.

Sunday morning we attended baby dedication at Bobby & Kari's church. There were over 20 families dedicating their children to the Lord. Ethan slept through the entire service.

If you click on the picture you may be able to see the proud parents standing with the pastor.

Ethan is still asleep when it's time to go home!

Bobby, Kari, & Ethan came over for Sunday dinner
after they went home to feed Ethan.

Time to go visit Kari's family & he's sleeping again!
Sunday was truly a day of rest for Ethan.
So sweet!

Your yard will be gorgeous if the Sun ever seriously shines again. I keep telling myself that this rain is a blessing.

Ethan is precious. I'm with Becky, it's overwhelming when babies are dedicated in church.

Cindy said...

Baby dedications are so wonderful. Ethan is such a cute little man. Glad you got to spend time with him this weekend!

You certainly had a busy weekend. I may go see if our Lowe's has any plants on sale! I love red geraniums. I love most all plants!
Your little Ethan is so cute!
Your Mother's Day post was very touching.

Aren't baby dedications the MOST wonderful thing?!?! Ethan is just too cute!

It sounds like you have been staying dryer up North than we have in Southern Oklahoma. It has rained and rained and rained......

How special for Ethan to be dedicated on Mother's Day. I'm so glad you had a great day!
