Julianne's Baptism

Yesterday was a very special day for our sweet Julianne.
It was her baptism!
Unfortunately, she was rather tired when it was time to pour the Holy Water over her head, so she went ahead and shouted a few words of joy and a couple Hallelujah's for all to hear.

Our friends, Matt and Carla, accepted the role of Julianne's Godparents.
We also took a few more family photos...
Doug and I were thankful that our families could join in the celebration.
Mattison and Reba couldn't pass on the opportunity to get their picture taken
Julianne and her cake - I even let her have a small lick of the icing (which she loved) and ice cream (which she spit out).

Opening cards and presents
Matt and Carla gave Julianne a cross to hang in her room

Carla also found this prayer sheep for Julianne.  When you press its foot, it will recite The Lord's Prayer, Hail Mary, and the Glory Be

Julianne received a cross pendant from Ma-maw, Pa-paw, Aunt Lisa, Aunt Katie and Brian
Gram and Pa gave Julianne a pretty pink cross and a little decorative mug
Aunt Josie found a tiny bracelet that says Child of God, but Julianne was getting hungry once again and wasn't too thrilled about wearing it.
Thank you to everyone for making our little girl's day extra special.

Until next time...
