God Bless Evelyn Delores

Thanks, Mom, for making the delicious cake!

Last night we baptized Evelyn in the same church that Trenton, Charlotte, and myself were baptized in and Jarrod and I were married in.

(Mommy’s legs apparently need to take a trip to see the sun and the gym – eek!)

Evelyn wore the baptismal gown that my Nanny made for me and my brother.  Trenton and Charlotte have also worn it.

She also wore the hand crocheted booties that my mom and her siblings wore for their baptisms.

Evelyn did great.  Trenton was very excited that she didn’t cry when Father poured the holy water on her head.

It was wonderful to have family and friends surrounding us on Evelyn’s special day.

Hi! I just got done checking out your blog and being that you are a military wife. Reaching out to see if you wanted to work together on a piece for resources related to military members and veterans. I'd love to chat further about it? Much appreciated!
