Paeton wore the dress I was baptised in 27 years ago which made things so special for me. My mom had kept this dress safely stashed away for all these years so my children could enjoy the same things as I did. What a treasured moment as I dressed Paeton in the outfit yesterday morning. She looked like such an angel especially with her bracelet from Grandma Marx (adorned with 3 charms - a cross, her initial & a picture of Jesus) and her cross necklace from Grandma Karen (with pink stones in it). Neither Grandma knew the other one had gotten her a piece of jewelry - they matched perfectly! Paeton also wore a very special bib that had her name embroidered in it.
I think she knew yesterday was a special day. She was SO EXCITED getting in her princess dress before church. She kept clapping her hands together and flashing me that darling smile she has. As you can see by how I'm going on and on....I felt she looked just amazing. Such a mommy/daughter moment.
I've recapped as best I can with the pictures I had below. I'm getting more pictures from Karen and Brooke so I'll keep updating as they come in. Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Having a great time at the reception at our house.
All better now - here's Paeton pictured with daddy and daddy's Godparents, Mike & Joan.
