Yesterday we had the honor and privilege of having Jade baptized as we promised to love, encourage and raise her to be a child of God's love as he has already received her as his own. It was a great day for us to be surrounded by family and friends.
It was especially special for me b/c she wore the dress that I was baptized in 30 years ago. Here are some pics of the dress and the accessories she wore with it.
Her headband was made by the fabulous Kait at LOKDesigns. And the locket necklace was mine that I wore.Her initial/birthstone bracelet was made by a church friend of my mom's.
So cute shoes!Me and my girlie ready to go to church.Quick pic with her brothers. Don't their faces show trouble? :) Being baptized by Dr. Stouten along with Kurt Henry.
After church we went to mom and dad Meeuwsen's for lunch. These were the yummy desserts made by Holland Cakery.And I wanted to get a family pic....this picture tells it all! Carter being crazy, Trey just had a major blow out and Jade just hanging out as usual!
