Our weekend of fun

On Saturday, we went to the wedding of a lovely young couple in our church. My husband was performing the ceremony, and Miriam was one of the little flower girls.

The kids:


Daddy & kids

The whole family

(BTW, that's apple cider in the glasses!)


With the bride & groom:


Today, Sunday, was Solomon's 7th birthday. He had requested an airplane/pilot theme for the party. One of his gifts was a pilot costume, which he got to open earlier in the week so he would be able to wear it to the portrait studio for his birthday pictures.

  2. Zsuzsanna,

    Great pictures! The kids are so cute! I'll be praying for you and the baby as time draws near for the baby to make his/her entrance into this world! Btw, for being so close to delivery, you look fantastic!

    I love what you did for Solomon's party, very creative!

    I hope you keep your blog public. I really do enjoy reading it. We share many common views and you still give me pause to think.

    Many blessings!

  3. They are so cute.

    May I ask about the "wine" glasses? My inlaws alway served wine and gave the kids Sprite in the glasses. Well, I came along and don't drink and didn't want my kids to pretend to drink so I wouldn't let them participate.

    Do you think I was wrong in that? I thought it gave the apprearance of drinking. My dh's family has many alcoholics and I think they've passed on some very bad "traditions."

  4. Miriam's hair was so cute at the wedding.

    Solomon looks like a little man in his pilot outfit. You did a great job with his party. You're so creative.

  5. I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of Solomon's party and the wedding. I thought that you looked good in the pictures. I just wish I could see your pregnant belly. :) You are creative when it comes to decorating.

    I would love to hear more details about the wedding. How did the couple meet? Did they date or court? Was the wedding held at Faithful Word Baptist Church? I think it was neat they had Miriam as their flower girl. She was so cute.

  7. I have a question in regard to modesty. I noticed the bride wore a strapless dress. I too wore one at my wedding held at my Free Methodist church. My mother wanted me to wear a wrap for the church portion...even though my church is fairly liberal. I didn't. I was surprised to see such a dress in a church such as yours. However, I know very little about your denomination.

  8. Nikki,

    Yes, Solomon got the card and loved it. Please tell Hannah thank you from him.

    Bekki,

    Thanks for the compliment. I liked that dress most of all because it was a size M and it fit me at 9 months!

    I plan on keeping my blog public. I posted that poll because of an e-mail I received saying I should make it private because of the content, and the fact that my blog was so hard to stay away from even for people who didn't like what I had to say.

    Stefanie,

    Personally, I don't think it is wrong to use certain types of glasses for non-alcoholic beverages, but I certainly wouldn't try to talk someone with that conviction out of it.

    Sarah,

    Thanks for the compliments! I am planning on sending you a package this week - honestly!

    Misty,

    You will wait to see if David/Leslie want to share the details of how they got married themselves. I cannot give out that kind of information on their behalf. The ceremony was held at a country club because the facilities we use for church would not have been suitable for something so festive.

    Lisa,

    Thanks for the compliment.

    hudson6803,

    our church does not dictate any kind of dress code. There is preaching on dressing modestly, but it is left up to each individual to decide for themselves whether or not they want to obey the Bible in that respect or any other. Also, we are not part of any denomination. We are an independent (= completely autonomous) Baptist church.
