Donny and I dedicated Cora Jane at church Sunday. Our prayer is that our precious little girl will grow into a godly woman. We pray that she will have a loving heart and compassion for others. But most of all we pray for her salvation! She is truly a blessing from the Good Lord! We are dedicated to serving the Good Lord in our house and to be the godly parents that we are called to be.
"The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing." Zephaniah 3:17
*The dress that Cora Jane is wearing has been in my mom's family for over 60 years.

I love fall for so many reasons. I love the weather, colors, the changing of the leaves, and PUMPKINS! I was so excited to take Cora Jane to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. I never visited the pumpkin patch as a child, but I plan to make it a tradition for us. We visited the Grand Ole Pumpk!n Patch in Clanton. It was a beautiful day and I'm so thankful that we got there early. Cora Jane didn't really have a clue what it was all about, but she loved the hay. She kept a piece her mouth from the hay ride until we got back up to get the stroller.
|I love this picture! She didn't want to sit by herself.|
|All is right with the world because momma is sitting with me!|

We had a small birthday party at Mimi's house. We had it on September 30th since Saturdays in the South are dedicated to football and Donny was hosting a dove shoot on the farm. We didn't have a "theme" party, but everything was polka dots. I decorated on Saturday and finished up on Sunday after church. The party started at 2:30 in hopes that Cora Jane would take a good nap. She wasn't sure about all the people being there, but she was in to opening the presents. Well, she really liked the paper. Her favorite gift was the six pack of Puffs that Leah got her. It was time for cake and Cora Jane did not like the icing. She wouldn't touch it. We finally put some puffs on top of the cake and she picked them off carefully. I did cut a slice of cake out and flipped it over. She would eat the cake part. It was a great party and so thankful for all who came out to celebrate (but momma isn't doing another all out birthday party.)
