Ida Dekker was Mike's Great Grandma and a wonderful, godly woman. Dekker is also my sister-in-law's middle name. And Mae was Mike's Grandma's middle name. So we ended up using all family names again! And we're really not trying to only use three letter first names - it just seemed to happen! The upside is that hopefully the kiddos can spell their names no problem!
(Vicki whipped up this sweater for her and I made the dress.)
The blanket in this picture was an extremely special present to Ida from her Great Grandma (Mike's Mom's Mom). It was made by her namesake, Ida Dekker, for Mike's Aunt and little unborn cousin, Megan, who were killed in a car crash when Mike was young. Needless to say, it is a great keepsake and we feel very honored to have it.
