Baptism

What a wonderful day!! Glory to God!

Miss Moppet's dress was GORGEOUS!! (I don't have fantastic pictures yet but I will be making sure to take them.) This was made my my dear friend Susanna. [update: She just put up a post with detailed photographs and the story of the ribbon sewn into the dress!] Here are a few photos of me seeing it for the first time (godfather is holding it):





The proud grandparents holding her today:


 

And some pictures with the proud godparents:







And here's the baptism, starting with everything laid out in the back room.
(Thanks to my father for taking all the pictures during the baptism!)


(This was embroidered on the front of the slip. Blew me away!!!)




























A little photo session in the hall afterward:




And all the girls. :)


Thanks for everyone's prayers! First communion tomorrow!

  2. Lots of oohs and aahs here! How very sweet. Did you do the churching at the same time?

    Many years! So happy for you all!

  3. Thank you! Yes, Laura, I was churched just before we started the baptism and Catherine was churched at the end.
