We dedicated Drew this Sunday at church... in the post I wrote on an unplanned pregnancy I mentioned that the doctors thought something was seriously wrong with Drew before he was born and it was during those few months that AJ and I had to give Drew to God and say "Lord... you know we want him but he's yours' first and foremost". It was such a reminder to me that we need to be doing that continually...
The proud Daddy and Drew... Don't they look cute in their navy and khakis?

We invited the whole church over after the service for a light lunch. My goal was to spend $0 on decorations... so I went out to the yard and cut some forsythia branches and used varying sizes of rectangular vases. My mom got us that runner (Ralph Lauren) from Macy's for $1.60. Yep, a Ralph Lauren runner for $1.60. I thought it looked sharp with all the white dishes... and I love the combo of yellow and gray.
Years ago I saw a Pottery Barn catalog with wrapped silverware and remembered it for our party. I used cheapo twine and white paper napkins folded in half. It was a smidge time consuming but I had fun doing it.
