One of the 3 tables my mom had--we were a full house!
The bakery perfectly recreated the cake I had seen on pinterest for Charlotte's big day. It was also perfect for all those who had given up sweets for Lent!
No party is complete without cookies by the one and only Alison Hathcock!
Charlotte wore my christening gown and her bonnet, booties, and blanket were hand crocheted by my mom. I thought she looked angelic.
During the ceremony we promised to raise Charlotte as a child of the light and that made me smile because even now she is fascinated with lights. I hope she always has that same fascination and child like wonder and awe. I am forever grateful and mindful of the true gift and blessing that Charlotte is and Forrest and I don't take our responsibilities to her lightly. It was kind of nice to makes those promises to the Lord in front of our families and friends just like we did on our wedding day.
We chose my cousin Stevie and Forrest's Aunt Paula as Charlotte's godparents. I hope that they will always remain extra special people in her life that she can always look to for advice, guidance, and fun!
That wonderful day was just the first of many big events in Charlotte's life that we will get to share with her and prepare her for. I hope she is surrounded by just as much love at those events as she was at her christening!
