Olivia's special day

We had such a special day celebrating and dedicating our sweet Olivia Ann at church. Our Sunday school class had a reception in her honor. We have such a great group of friends and we are so thankful that we get to share in each one another child's dedication. We feel so blessed to have such a great community of people. Olivia was one of 5 born in about 5 months so we have a lot of babies to celebrate. We have the privelege of having sunday school each Sunday in the beautiful Bellamy mansion which is next to our church. It looks like it could have been her wedding reception! We were so honored to also have all of our family there. Levi was so excited to celebrate "baby" at church. We enjoyed presenting her to our church family. She was all smiles with our pastor Jim and loved being introduced to the church. We gave Olivia a bracelet that I made from some pearls I had and a cross that I got when I was a little girl. She loved wearing it. I found a poem online that we modified for her...

A dedication gift for our sweet baby girl;
You’ll wear this beautiful cross and pearls.

And years from now when you become a bride; on something “old” you must decide.

Tuck this bracelet in your bouquet with love from your parents on your special day.

My parents also gave her a beautiful mustard seed necklace referring to Matthew 17:20 "If ye has faith as small as a mustard seed, anything is possible." My mom had one on her charm bracelet growing up and I had one too and I just adored it. We pray that Olivia too will have the faith to believe that with the Lord anything is possible. We loved celebrating her with our family and our church family. We feel very blessed and thankful.

More pictures to come...
