Baptism days slipped by us this year without celebration. So much travel and figuring out how to do the school year made my mind go elsewhere. So as Esther’s day approached I decided we should do a 3 for 1 party and we celebrated the rebirth of Lily, Gerhardt and Esther last week.


Essie’s Baptism Party

Monday, October 14th, 2013



Essie’s baptismal sponsors wanted to have a party for her. They hated that they missed her birthday in September so we did it all over again last weekend. So thoughtful of them.


Supper, gifts,cake and homemade ice cream!


She’s the only baby for whom we’ve chosen sponsors that actually live within 300 miles of us! It’s a blessing to have made some good friends here.

Baptism Day

Today we celebrated Clara’s Baptism anniversary, which was June 28th, but I always forget, poor Clara.


Gerhardt’s Rebirthday Party

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Today we celebrate Gerhardt’s baptism day. Since he’s not too big on sweets (I know, how is this my child?!) his treat….Goldfish Crackers, one of his favorites and since the Fish has long been a symbol of Christianity, I thought it worked very well for such an occasion!

Two years ago today we brought this tiny sugar to the waters of Holy Baptism!
