Kennedy is "dedicated" at church

The day after Kennedy's first birthday party, she was dedicated at church.

I grew up in the Lutheran church where babies are baptized, but this non-denominational church dedicates their babies. (Which makes sense!)

Somehow Brittany pulled together a lovely breakfast for all of us before church. The service was great and we all liked their minister.

So glad to see Kennedy with a church to grow up in. Praying she loves her church family and stays close to God always!

The Birthday Party

For Kennedy's first birthday party, Brittany chose a beach theme:

Do all babies eat sand at the beach?

On the afternoon of Kennedy's first birthday we drove out to Kiawah Island. My daughter loves the beach and since her husband isn't so wild about it, looked forward to having a her little one be a "beach buddy."

Unfortunately, what Kennedy seems to like about the beach is the way sand tastes!!

We didn't stay very long!

Kennedy is One!!

John had been helping put some of Kennedy's gifts together while we were visiting: a play house and a water table. The night before the big day he got out the kitchen set Brittany had bought for Kennedy, thinking it would be easy like the others.


Hundreds of pieces. Tiny pieces. Little hinges. Brittany guilted Dan into staying up to help John and eventually she and I went to bed without much hope it would be done by the next morning.

But they finished at midnight and when I went downstairs at 6:30 a.m. it was sitting in the middle of the floor. And somehow Kennedy knew to put things in the cupboards and take things out again. (How do they know that at one?)

Brittany also got her a Chef Kennedy apron and chef hat.

Father's Day in Charleston

The day after the funeral was Father's Day and our daughter had the extended family over for a BBQ before everyone scattered.

Afterwards we went to their neighborhood pool. Kennedy loves to splash, but didn't realize that she was the one splashing water in her own face!

A Funeral in Charleston

Kennedy's Great-grandma died on Mother's Day while we were all in Punta Cana. In June her ashes were placed in the bell tower at The Citadel in Charleston where her husband had gone to school.

The funeral was lovely and it was wonderful to have the family together all weekend.
