Ava's dedication...

We had a fabulous weekend thanking God for the gift of Ava and dedicating ourselves to the task of christian parenting... thank you SO much to all of our family and friends who made it such a special occasion!

Here's some pics to fill you in...

Thanking God for Ava, and promising to point her to Jesus, with God's help...
Good as gold for Pastor Bobby! (Even though she fussed for Dave and I!)
Pastor Bobby blesses Ava
Cream tea... yum!
The table - decked with scones, jam, clotted cream and cakes! My Mum is TRULY amazing!
(And thanks Liz and Jo for the other contributions!) 
The fruit ones went quick! 
Our little family
My friend Catrin came over from Austria and was an absolute SUPERstar, helping me
make the little labels early on the morning!
Present time... whatever could this be?!? Thanks David, Hazel and Jonathan! 
The lovely Ava...

Tegan... our magnificent waitress who travelled all the way from Wales and gave us excellent service, a beautiful table and even wrote a speech for us!

We did feel so blessed to have such supportive family and friends around us... making the task of parenting Ava feel slightly less daunting.

HUGE thanks to Catrin and Emma for travelling in from miles away... to Mum for being incredible... to Liz and Jo for the extra cakes... to Alex, Elliot, Becky and the other YPFers for being SO sacrificial and generous and spending their Sunday afternoon serving tea and coffee and loading and unloading a dishwasher in an overheating kitchen. And thanks to all our friends who made the effort to come along and share our special day with us!

We thank God for each and every one of you.
