Project Life - Week 22

This Sunday was a very special day for our family.  We had Maddie's baby dedication that morning during the service.  Our family went up on the stage, and our pastor explained that in dedicating Maddie, we were asking for the help and prayers of our church family as we seek to raise Maddie the way we believe that the Bible wants us to.  Our pastor also announced that Maddie is the new secretary of the nursery.  :)
 Monday was Memorial Day.  My dad and I finished our plant shopping that morning, and that afternoon, Dad and Drew planted the plants and finished up the garden bed.
 Drew has been very interested in the garden.
We went to our friends' house that evening for dinner.  There were several little boys there that night, and Drew loved playing with them.  The boys managed to overflow a toilet in the basement, so it was an exciting evening!
 My parents left to go home Tuesday morning, and we rushed off a little later for Maddie's 15 month well-visit.  Her doctor noticed that Maddie has a small heart murmur, and she wanted to take Maddie's blood pressure in both of her arms and legs.  Maddie hated having her blood pressure taken.  They tried several times and only got a decent reading for one of her arms before they gave up.  After the blood pressure fiasco, Maddie had to get three shots, so there was a whole lot of crying coming from our little room that morning!
 Drew had dog night in his Wednesday night church class.  The children were supposed to dress up like dogs, and they got to eat hot dogs at their class.
We made and delivered a dinner for Drew's teacher and her family on Thursday.  A big thunder/hail storm started while we were at her house, so we had to stay for a little while.  Drew enjoyed seeing his teacher and her new baby.
 Friday evening, we made one of our favorite summer dinners - grilled pizza!  Drew loves to put his own pepperonis on his pizza.
Of course, we had to make s'mores on the grill after dinner.
Here's what I did for Project Life this week.  I kept it very simple with one 4x6 photo and a bunch of 3x4 photos.  I used some paper from my stash for the title card and a Wellington journaling card.
I am linking up again with The Mom Creative.
