Ava's Christening

Ava and Grandma Laurie

Sunday Ava and her cousin Cameron were christened. Ava "sang" and "talked" at all the appropriate times and it was a beautiful ceremony and it was wonderful seeing all of Ava's other grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins who I only get to see on special occasions.

Of course, there were pictures

Jamie, Ava, Cory, Godmother Bonnie, Godfather Chris

Love it! :)

(I really like Jamie's dress! Where did she get it?!?!)

Gnightgirl said...

Loved the pix, as always; she looks like the daintiest little thing. She's just precious; do I keep saying that?!

Laurie said...

Everybody - Thanks!!!!

(Jen, I'll ask about the dress.)


Leslie said...

Oh, Ava is just darling! What a special day.

Loved the Mama and Papa-razzi title. LOL! Then I saw all the wide open space in the rest of the picture and immediately got homesick. What a special day for Ava. By any chance is the dress new or has it been in the family? I only ask because I have a picture of my oldest in a Christining gown that was passed down thru her dad's family.

Laurie said...

Leslie - Thanks. :)

Texas Gal - The dress was new, but Jamie's family has a silver bowl that has been used for baptisms for generations that was used for all the baptisms that day.

That girl certainly likes her photo ops!

Beautiful as always!

I can't believe that all these wonderful things happened while I was on a break from blogging. Lovely, lovely photos.

Adela said...

Beautiful, all of it. The last pic made me laugh out loud! You have a gift, Laurie!

Laurie said...

Grimm, Lorna and Adela - Thanks! :)
