A Beautiful Day

On Palm Sunday March 28, 2010, our baby girl became a part of Christ's family through Baptism.  It was such a beautiful day and extra special since the event was shared with my 28th birthday.  Miss Reese fussed through the majority of it, but as soon as the water hit her head, she was quiet.  We use bathtime at our house to make her happy, too!
with Reese's sponsors Matt Parker and Joe & Pam Lowke
Reese's Christening dress was hand smocked by Honey and made by an employee of my mom's.  It turned out absolutely beautiful--just as I imagined it.

We enjoyed celebrating with several of our local family and friends afterwards at the house and enjoyed the back yard and beautiful weather.  We feasted on chopped beef barbecue sandwiches, baked potato salad, chilled haricots verts (french green beans) with feta, and Emeril's Blue Cheese Waldorf salad.  Everything was so tasty thanks to Grammy and Honey for helping (especially since our Atlanta trip was earlier this week)!
Oh, and how could I forget the scruptious Tres Leches cake (with Reese's monogram on it, of course) !?  I ordered it from Austin Cake Studio and it did not disappoint in decoration or taste.  I was originally going to go with Italian Creme, but considering it was my birthday too, I was a bit selfish and picked my favorite!

Finally, the Grandpa's saying goodbye before heading back to B-town...so sweet!
