Special Day...

Yesterday was a very special day...the Mr. and I celebrated our newest Goddaughter's baptism, as well as her sister's First Communion and Birthday (Happy Birthday, K!!)!

Our sweet Goddaughter has an uncle who is "almost" a priest...he is currently a deacon (I forget...there's a word that goes before, "intermediate" or "conversional" or something...) and he was able to do the First Communion and Baptism for his nieces!

The church we attend has a tradition of the priest (deacon) taking the newly baptised baby and walking her up and down the aisle. Well, the sweet babe sure had a lot to say during the baptism, but her uncle didn't hesitate one bit in taking an upset baby...even asking for her pacifier:

And walking her down the aisle...she quieted right down!

Why is it, when you put a group of people together in front of a group of people with cameras, that no one seems to know where to look?! See?!

It was a great day and a great celebration!


  1. Awww, your God children are so sweet! My church only does baptisms and they wait until the child is at least 12. I don't know much about 1st communion, but it seems like a lot of children had it done this past Sunday. Is that a tradition to have it done after Easter?

  2. Looks like a wonderful day!!

  3. Whoop whoop! Congratulations :) What a pretty church!!

    Side note: I believe "transitional" deacon is what you're looking for...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
