It was Benjamin's dedication to God. We dressed him in his little outfit, [which we had to take in the pants at the waist because, they were too big] and my family came down to be part of this momentous occasion.
|With his outfit on. So cute!|
|Benjamin, and his G-ma!|
Ok back to the dedication...
It was nice. Both sides of the family there. Well, our families are huge, especially Ruben's... But the people that were there were the most closest to us. [minus the grandfathers, they are both out of the country. Strange how that is eh?]
|Here we are on the altar.. making the commitment.|
It was really important for us to do this. To commit ourselves, as parents, to raise our child knowing who God is, and to teach him to honor and love God, as we do. It was one of the things I prayed for and promised God I would do when I was pregnant. [And I shall do!]
The parents saying some words. My "speech" was pretty simple, I was kinda put on the spot. ..
And Rubes told everyone they needed to fill out an application if they wanted to hold the baby.
