Our precious Lucy Elanor’s Baptism was this afternoon. What a wonderful day!

Her sweet dress was made for and worn by my cousins, Jennifer and Michelle, when they were baptized and I wore it when I was dedicated as a baby.

Here’s our new awesome priest, Father Tim, holding Lucy next to the baptismal font.

What a blessed day! I can’t stop smelling her head which still smells so sweet from the oil she was anointed with. She was so calm during the whole thing and didn’t even wake up when the water was poured on her little head. Lucy’s godmother, Colleen, was there and her husband, Titus, was proxy for Luke, Lucy’s godfather who is in Texas and couldn’t be there today. We were also joined by wonderful friends and family and celebrated afterward with treats at our house.

Aren’t these little cakes from Daniel’s mom adorable?!


Beautiful Lucy and beautiful Ooma!

Beautiful Lucy and beautiful Marmee!

Precious, glorious day!
