I'm a Godmother!

My niece, Olivia Madeline, was baptized this past Saturday and I have the honor of being her Godmother. The entire day was just perfect. Olivia wore a Christening gown that my mother intricately sewed by hand. She was dedicated to sewing this gown for several weeks, but I assure you that all of her hard work paid off in the end. It was absolutely stunning and no store-bought gown could have come close to its beauty or meaning behind it. It was sewed with love and will most definitely become an heirloom piece in our family. Olivia was a trooper the entire day - we hardly heard a peep out of her during the ceremony and she didn’t even cry when the Deacon poured the holy water over her head. After the ceremony, Maria & Bryan hosted a celebratory lunch at their home which was absolutely delicious. The weather was gorgeous and we all sat outside in their covered lanai to eat, drink and mingle. Olivia slept through most of her party but I know everyone else thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I’m still in the process of getting some better pictures from my sister, Rachael, but in the meantime here are a couple that Rick was able to snap…

A little startled but no crying!
