On April 22, we dedicated Annie at church! We were surrounded by family and it was a very special day. I was slightly distracted by Isla playing with my earrings as I was trying to listen to the words of our pastor... but hey, that's the life of a mom. We received a wooden, hand-crafted treasure chest and we've decided to make this "Annie's keepsake box". Little poems she writes, pictures she paints, gifts she makes us etc.. will fill this box and it is something we can give to her in her adult life. Something I think that is very cool. A blog post is never complete without a picture or 2.
