1st Birthday...Our House

This weekend I had to go to Chicago for work and it was a big weekend for one member of our family. Our niece, Bailey, turned a year old and was dedicated at church. I was sad that I was not able to make the events in person. Bryan did such a good job of taking pictures and calling me with updates of the weekend.

Miss Priss opening her gifts. She looks like she is a pro.

Bailey enjoying her cake. Bryan said that everytime she took a bite she would clap for yourself.

This was one of Bailey's presents from us.

Our friend, Katie C., had made her little girl the cutest tutu and I was telling her that I would love for Bailey to have one. Katie C. said I will make you one for her. :) Aunt Lizzie and Uncle B had to go with Pirate colors. I can't wait to see her modeling her tutu.
Bailey-Happy 1st Birthday!! We love you lots and we look forward to watching God reveal his special plan in your life!!

I wanted to take some of the money that we received for our wedding and purchase something that we could always keep. When we moved to Wilson one of the first people that I was John and Mary Hope. John just happens to be an artist. I talked to him about doing a portrait of our house and he said that he would love to. When I got home from Chicago Monday this is what I found in my dining room. I love it and I am excited that we will always have a painting of our first home together.
Dowdy even made it into the picture.
