Sunday Thoughts

Today I was thinking about clothes.

One baptismal gown in white linen.

A fluffy toddler dress for Aunt Vivian’s wedding.

And a pretty flowered Easter dress.

Because we will need to have all of those for her.

Because she can stay.

    So true! This makes my heart HAPPY. I was also just thinking about the little one’s baptism and getting really excited about it! I hope it will be over here…?? If so we definitely want to help out with the reception or whatever we can do. So exciting! If you guys didn’t have it here I would honestly be willing to fly over there for it. I don’t know what Mike would say about it…but I would totally want to if possible!

      Yes, we’ll have the baptism in your neck of the woods, Kayleen ๐Ÿ™‚ And we’ll welcome you’re help, but I’m sure we’ll also have lots of help from Taylor’s family. I am looking at linen fabric this week and starting plans for the gown.. Since (hopefully) our other children won’t be this old when they are baptized, I want the dress to be wearable for other-than-being-baptized events.. maybe a nice Easter dress or a Sunday dress that our girls can wear around this age. We will see.

    Eeeeee! Don’t you love it! I would love to help you out with those things, but I am afraid my offering would be so much more meager than what anyone else’s offering would be…Although, I am still offering. Just let me know.

      Renee, your help is always welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ never meager since you give with your whole heart! We’ll be in touch about timing for the baptism, in case you were able to come out, though we’ll see w/ your due date and all :-/ Lent is coming up, you know…
