The Fanciest Easter Dress Ever

Today my Claire is getting baptized.  We're all so excited!  I'm really happy she's making this choice.

(In our faith, children get baptized when they are 8 years old.)

We're also excited to see all of the family that is here for the event.

We went to my parents' house last weekend and took some photos so that I wouldn't have the stress of capturing her dress along with everything else going on this weekend.

It was windy, so she had fun twirling her dress.

Oh, and I sewed her dress:

It only kind of consumed my life since Christmas.  
And yet I claim to enjoy sewing. (Note to self: verify sanity)

And thank you Target for free shipping on new white shoes:

As fun as this weekend will be, I'm sure, I'll be kind of be glad when it's over.  Between sewing the dress and getting ready for house guests and prepping for a post-baptism luncheon and everything else, I'm... tired.  Oh yah, and it's ALSO Easter.  I really want to sit and rest a spell...


Well, at least a nice Easter dress for Claire this year was a no-brainer!

Yay Claire. She's a beauty and a cutie. What an exciting time in her life. And how cool that she has a mom who sews (like her own special mom!)!
