dedication

Last night we had the girls dedicated at our church...

sisters

these pics were taken right before while waiting for our turn.

The dress that Eden is wearing was the first dress Ryan ever bought for Tessa, I think he bought it before she was born and it was her Easter dress that year. It was one of the few things of Tessa's that I kept (I thought she was our last baby and gave her stuff away!) And now Eden can wear it!

Eden was ready...

ready for the show

while Tessa got a bit shy and wouldn't smile...

lil smirk

I like this picture, Eden is smiling at Ryan who is ready to catch in case she topples over (hence the floating hand). Looks like she's thinking "great job Dad."

smiling at Dad, who's ready to catch

Eden doesn't wear bows often, she usually just pulls them right off...

which do you like better?

We pray they will continue to be happy, healthy Godly girls that keep the love of Jesus in their hearts :)

Just happened in on your blog from another blog. What wonderful pictures of beautiful children. I just had to tell you that they put a smile on my face! Have a blessed day.

Oh, how wonderful!!! Cute shots! :)

Beautiful!
I think between the two of Eden, I like the color photo best. I like all the soft pinks in her dress, bow, cheeks and lips.

The girls look beautiful!! Loved all the pics.

I really like them both. What if you were to play with the black and white and just have the pink in her dress and bow show in color?

I love all your photos. A lot of your black and whites are just spectacular, but I like the color one best on this. Laurie

I like the b&W better of that particular shot- but I LOVE the top pic of the sisters!! and the look on Eden's face- while looking up at Daddy is just sheer joy- what a moment to capture.

I forgot to say that I liked the color one better. I just like being able to see her rosy cheeks. They both look great though!

Congratulations on such a wonderful memory! Such a big day!

I vote for the color too...it's the pink. Don't get that around these parts!

The last one of Eden is beautiful - both ways! : )

I found a link to your blog from another one. I think your daughters are beautiful! Both versions of Eden's picture are great, but i am partial to black and white =) Oh, how I wish I had discovered your blog during the contest for the camera strap/bag give away!

Mama Bear said...

What gorgeous photos Erin! We will be doing our little guy's dedication once the adoption is finalized. It's kind of a milestone for our whole family. We're so excited!

BTW, I love your song selections on here. I really, really like the song by Brandon Heath...Give Me Your Eyes!

What a special day! I just love that Eden was wearing Tessa's dress.

You're so blessed, Erin.
