Elizabeth's Baptizing

Finally I got Elizabeth's quilt finished, just in time for her big day.
Once again the little boys took grandma's camera. Look at this picture they captured. I couldn't have taken one this pretty.

The ceremony.
The boys adoring their little sister.
Great Grandma Cardwell also doing some admiring.
We also celebrated Alex's 5th birthday. He loved his car cake.
The meal was catered by a friend of the son's. The menu was BBQ pork steaks, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, ramen salad and cucumber salad. There were lots of snacks brought in for the afternoon. We didn't eat until about 4.
The kids loved the playground behind the hall. The weather was beautiful, sunny and cool. There were some tired and dirty kids by evening.
Elizabeth was so good all day. She never cried during the ceremony. She kept the gown that I made on all day.
Such blessings we had all day.

Elizabeth is a beautiful living doll. I just love that quilt! And her christening gown! What a lovely family you have. Happy B-day to Alex also!
