Abby's Baptism

 What a sweetheart. Abby was so excited about her baptism day.
She decided to wear the same dress I wore when I was baptized almost 30 years ago!!
We bought her a new dress for the occasion, but this is the one she ended up wearing that day. How fun!
After a year or so I'll bundle it up and mail it to Mindy. Maybe her Kaela will want to wear it also when she turns eight.
Abby and Dad had to leave pretty early that morning. Mom was busy making the last batch of cinnamon rolls for afterwards and trying to get the rest of the gang ready and hopoing to leave the house in some sort of order knowing everyone would be over after. Somehow we all managed and even got there on time!
We even got a picture of us all, the family that is. In all the hustle, I didn't even realize our friends were waiting inside the foyer and didn't make the picture. I was so bummed about that. We have such great friends who came out to support Abby and we are so thankful for the family who arranged to be there too!
 We all came home and had cinnamon rolls, muffins, fruit and treats.
I wish I had taken more pictures, but here are a few of the ones that turned out.

Thanks to everyone for their love and for helping to make Abby's baptism a day to remember!
Congratulations girl!
We love you Abby!
