Lily's Baptism

Lily had her baptism this past weekend in LA at Ascension Lutheran Church in Thousand Oaks. She wore the baptism gown that my mom wore (her grandmother made it) and my brothers and I wore. She didn't seem to mind all the layers but it was hard to hold her in it. She did well for the ceremony and watched the pastor intently (once she had her pacifier).
Eric and Robbin are her god parents

The church made a special banner with her name on it and she got to keep this beautiful memory box to put all her special things in. I am not sure how we are going to get it home so it lives at grandma's house for now.
Grandparents John and Carole and Lee and Janis, Alex and I and Robbin and Eric.
Lily had the most beautiful and delicious cake made by Stephanie. If you live in LA and need a cake for any occasion she does such a great job!!
Auntie Penny gets her snuggle on Lily. She is just so yummy to snuggle with!!
The kiddies we itching to get in the pool since the weather was so nice. They had a polly pocket party instead.
Eric taking his role very seriously. Lily got him this shirt so he would know his job!!!
Grammy Peterson could not attend the baptism since she had just had knee replacement surgery so we visited her in the hospital. Lily was cozy in her arms and fell asleep. She is now Lily's only great grandparent as her other great grandma (whom her middle name is after, Kathleen Davis) passed away this week. We are sorry she will not be able to meet her and have her photo with Lily. We are going to England at Christmas so she can meet all of her Davis family.
My cousin Jenny was at the celebration and gave us a wonderful gift, a photo shoot for Lily. If you want to see a sneak preview on her blog here is the link
