Family Time is My Favorite Time - Weekend cont.

Sunday was all about my niece even though it was Mother’s Day. She was getting dedicated so I woke up early to begin the day.

It was my sister’s first Mother’s Day and I still can’t believe she’s a mom. I kept saying you have a daughter. She is your daughter. I wonder if my sister will ever get sick of me saying that.

My niece’s nursery is adorable! My sister and brother in law did such a great job in there. I love it and will be recruiting my sister to do my future kiddos rooms. I’ll take pictures of her kiddos and she’ll decorate my kiddos room. I think that’s fair.

My niece’s dress for the dedication was adorable! I couldn’t get over it. So what does Faith do when she can’t get over something? She takes pictures of it, of course.

And it didn’t stop there. My sister’s dress needed some attention too.

You’re probably wondering what Sean was doing while I snapped a millions of pictures. He read. He’s so smart ;).

Then we were off to the church to have my niece dedicated.

After service, we headed to Vino to feed our bellies. The food was so delicious (I had lobster ravioli). I am not the biggest fan of pancakes but they have the most amazing pancakes I have ever tasted.

After we ate we headed to my parent’s church to say hello to our mom. My dad is in Africa right now on a church mission so we were only visiting my mom. She was so happy to see all of us. I know it makes her extremely happy when the four of us are together. That has been my mother’s deepest wish that her daughters would be close.

We took some pictures, talked and then it was time for us all to leave.

It’s always sad to say see you later. But I’ll see them later.
