Caroline's Baptism - 1.11.15

Jesus said...."Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 
and teach them to do everything I have told you."
Matthew 28:18-20

On Sunday, January 11th, Caroline Joy was baptized at Fredsville Lutheran Church.  It was a perfect day filled with all of our family and friends.  Caroline wore my mom's baptism dress.  This dress has now been worn by my mom, myself, Kate, and Caroline.   

(Laughing, because if you know Caroline, you know she spits up A.LOT!  She, in her true fashion, spit up right in the baptismal font after Pastor finished baptizing her.  Definitely a memory we will have, and will laugh about, from this day!)

Feeling blessed God has given us this sweet little one to call our own.  Given the responsibility to raise her and teach her about His wondrous word and ways.  We pray she may always know her Father in heaven, walk in his ways, and feel His unconditional love for her.  She is perfect to Him and us!

Kevin's sister, Jenny, was also Caroline's sponsor but wasn't able to be with us since she lives in Colorado.

Pastor Lisa - Thanks for a wonderful service.  Despite Caroline's frowns in these pictures, she really did love Pastor.  Caroline was happy during the church service as Pastor walked with her up and down the isle.

Pastor Lisa also baptized our twins, Katherine and Matthew.

After the church service we celebrated with a luncheon with all who attended.

"Dear little baby,
if only you knew
What wonderful blessings
are waiting for you, 
What joys and discoveries, 
what beautiful plans
The Lord has for you
as you're placed in His hands."

We can't wait to see what awesome plans the Lord has in store for you, Caroline.  Precious child of God.
