last friday, we headed out (at 0darkthirty) to illinois for hannah's baptism and a big fat gathering of family. micah came with (cause he's free), but shane and layla stayed here w/ my folks because they're not. they were most definitely missed, but they took good care of their grandparents and layla got to paint every day so she was happy.
Micah was excited to help pack. notice the super-cute train sweater-vest in the bag. dave came home from work that day with a gymboree bag and said, 'i got you a present'. i had been eyeing that since i first saw it and i can't find any pictures of micah actually wearing it (he wore it sunday to church), so i'm pointing it out in the suitcase. i know, i'm a dork.
tons of fun bonding with uncle matt.
the 'non-lame baptism gift' we got for hannah. this little bracelet is so tiny. it's got blue crystals on it for her september birthday, pearls and a little silver cross pendant. i was SO happy to find it. totally not lame! and totally beautiful. it came from tinyblessings.com.
hannah with her godparents, us and auntie esther - mary's sister.
parents and godparents. apparently this was joe's first baptism. how cool is that that it was his own kid?!
