What a beautiful thing to enter the warm waters of baptism, excited to be new and clean and committed to keeping special promises (covenants) with our creator--a loving father in heaven--and our sweet Savior, Jesus Christ.
Such a perfect experience for this beautiful girl.
So, the sad part is that due to electronic failure (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it anyway) I lost all the many pictures I took on her big day:(.
Fortunately, I had taken these of her in her dress ahead of time.
As a side note, Grandma Loo slaved away piecing together every ruffle on this dress. Just kidding. I found the idea on "a girl & a glue gun" blog to use ruffle fabric.
Here's the URL ...
Grandma did, though, spend a good deal of time and talent getting it to turn out right (unfortunately for her, I tend to come up with a lot of crazy ideas that involve her doing most of the work--what she gets for being so darned resourceful!!). Anyway, it turned out beautifully. Thanks lovely Loo:)!!
Apparently she's sorta practicing to go into the water (hence the plugged nose). I love how silly this girl can be. What a great talent!!
Lucky for us, Grandma Dueck was also taking some pictures, so we do still have a few to enjoy.
Mae with her "white" eight is great cupcakes, white chocolate pretzels, a yummy bowl of grapes, and (out of the picture) a white mini donut tower and a plate of half croissant sandwiches and half pb&j on white bread cut out into hearts and flowers. It was super fun to put together, and the mini donut tower was definitely my fave.
Daddy and his girl.
Mae with the Grandpas ... she looks so tiny in comparison.
With Grandma Dueck.
And smiling big for the camera.
Such a beautiful baptism day!
