A few things I want to remember... Cora wore the same baptismal gown that Alice and I were baptized in. My grandmother (Grammy) made it. This was one of my favorite aspects of the day and I thought she looked like a dream in it. I especially loved this, because Emmitt wore the same outfit that Jaron had been baptized in (I've included a few pics of his baptism). Thankful for our family, piled in next to us in the pews of the church I grew up in. Thankful for a full house after the service to eat and celebrate, filled with laughter and kiddo raucous. Thankful for baptism's reminder of the importance of community. Still can't quite figure out how my little family and I get to be part of this village of such committed loved ones. I'm sure I am undeserving of it, but I'll take it anyway. Happy Baptism, sweet Cora!
Wait up, where's Emmitt?
Oh right, he said NO (!) to the group picture...
