Today Aubrey and I took advantage of the fall-ish weather and took a walk to Starbucks. I got a pumpkin spice latte, I am so happy they are back for the fall. Actually I got a grande, decaf, skim, no whip, three pump pumpkin spice latte. Does that indicate that I am high maintenance? ;)

Six weeks old--and cuter by the day!
We have been going through the process at our church to have Aubrey dedicated to the Lord. This involves an application, class, and Bible study before the actual dedication ceremony. The reason behind all this preparation is that you as parents are making six vows to God before the church community to raise your child in a Christian home to love, honor and respect the Lord. The church rightly wants parents to take this very seriously and fully understand the importance of these vows.
Bill and I are excited about this opportunity that we have to "train up a child," even though it is also a scary prospect. This process of learning the vows that we will take is really helping to fan the flames of our passion to have a Christ honoring family. Good thing we aren't doing it alone--we have God to guide us and our parents to look to as Godly examples. We are very blessed to have all four of Aubrey's grandparents to be examples in this way.
