Morgan's Baptism

Morgan's Baptism was on April 21st. We had a private baptism at 5 with a dinner to follow. 

Both of my younger girls are blessed to have their grandfather (JAGdad) baptism them. It's a tradition that will mean so much to them when they are older. 

Each one of my girls have this little lamb print with their baptism date. I love them. 

Us with JAGdad and Morgan's sponsors: Pastor Bill and one of my best friends, Quenby.

The family. 

This is Sue. We call her Granny-Sue. I could spend an entire week writing about this woman. She is means the world to me and to my girls. She gifted Morgan with her bonnet which is actually a handkerchief that she will carry on her wedding day. JAG and I actually had a strong debate over naming Moran after Sue - Morgan Sue, but we went with Lynne to honor JAG's grandmother.

Now on to the celebration!
I knew I wanted to use the burlap and lace theme. Lace is expensive so I threw some pink in.

Cake table with banner

I debated on a dessert table or cake. Cake was a last minute decision and I picked this one up at Sam's the day before.

Instead of a guest book I had everyone write a message and a scripture verse on a small doilies card (created by my friend Laura's mother). I plan to attach them into a book for Morgan.

I created the scrap banner - It probably could have used an ironing, but turned out better then I thought.

For center pieces I kept it simple with Mason jars, burlap and paper doilies.
My girlfriends' daughters helped arrange baby's breath and carnations in the large jar before the event.

We had about fifty people attend and served brisket with all the fixings.

And I could not have pulled it off without these women.
They helped me pick out the right shoes.
Set up tables
Dealt with the caterer
Helped dress Morgan
Helped clean up afterwards
Washed many a white tablecloth after the event
and just kept me sane.
They mean the world to me!
