First Sacrament

On May 6, 2012, we officially welcomed our sweet Mia into the Catholic family. Coincidentally, exactly nine years ago, on May 6, 2003, Bryan and I began our fairy tale! You can read about that here. It is exciting to me that we share that special date with our little caboose--almost like book ends for our family.

We decided to have Mia baptized in Lake Charles since that is where our family is. We wanted to share this special day with the people we love, and we knew it would just be too hard for them to come see us. We are especially grateful to Nonnie for getting this set up, and to Our Lady Queen of Heaven for allowing us to baptize our angel there even though that isn't the church we currently attend.

The ceremony was beautiful, and I am thankful for my friend, Katie, for being there for us to take some photos of this event.

Also, a very special thank you to Micha and Shawn for agreeing to be godparents to our Mia-girl.

Everything about this day was perfect...Well, almost perfect. There were a few people who are very special to us that just couldn't make it, but we all lead busy lives.

Thank yall for celebrating our joys with us! We love you (those here with us, and those with us in spirit)!

I sure do wish Pawpaw D could have been here with us, and that he could know Mia, but I know he has a front row seat to everything now that he is in Heaven.
