Lucy’s Dedication

Lucy’s dedication last weekend was absolutely perfect. Seriously, I couldn’t have asked for anything better, from the ceremony itself to the weather. It was a wonderful day.

We had about 25 family members and friends there. It was so obvious how loved Lucy is. Some of our good friends drove about 3 hours to get there, which really touched us and meant a lot.

The ceremony was held in my parents’ backyard overlooking their lake. Just about everyone was involved. My dad welcomed everyone; my brother, Ryan, read a Bible verse; my grandpa dedicated Lucy; Joe’s dad said a Hebrew blessing; my other brother, Randy, played a hymn; and the two moms invited everyone to lunch afterward. What made it extra special was that Lucy was the first great-grandchild my grandpa has dedicated. I know it meant a lot to him to be able to perform the ceremony.

We had a haystack lunch afterward — for those who don’t know, that’s Fritos topped with chili beans, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives or anything else you like — and one of my moms group friends made Lucy’s cake. It was seriously delicious. Everyone kept commenting about how good it was. It was so pretty that I didn’t want to cut it!

And, Lucy was so beautiful in her white dress. I can’t believe she managed to keep it clean!

And, of course, she had a BLAST hanging out with all her cousins! She spent a lot of time playing with Rivka while Marshall napped.

It was such a nice day full of such great memories.
