The big "blowout" was on Sunday, but I had to travel down to Newberry, SC that Saturday to teach a clay workshop at the local college. Needless to say, I was so thankful for all the help everyone gave to prepare for our Sunday gathering (thanks, again, guys!).
Playing with Addie.
All eyes on Guthrie- the perfect entertainment!
Hanging with Pawpaw.
Check out that hot Mawmaw!
We were so happy that our dear friend Kurt was able to conduct the dedication. I really like the idea of publically committing to raise your child to know Christ, but also the commitment the congregation makes, as well, to support and love your child as he grows. Guthrie was a sweet guy- smiling and "being shy" appropriately. Although, the little rotten egg wouldn't let Kurt hold him.
Being anointed with oil.Poor little guy zonked out at the end of the service.Family, friends and neighbors gathered to celebrate Mr. G, eat some good food and play some cornhole.

Holy moley it's cake.
Needless to say, Guthrie loved the cake. Once he figured out how to tear and grab a handful, he shovelled about half of it in his mouth in one bite! There were some good little helpers to assist in present opening.Trying out one of his new outside toys from Grandma Martha.
At one point Guthrie and I slipped away for some rest. I couldn't help but join him in his crib for a bit (Aunt Jan caught me!). Sunday night, after all the partying, we decided to head to our favorite Italian restaurant, Portifinos. Heck, we had eaten all day, why not fill up more?
