The Baptism and Birthday bash began like this...
We prayerfully chose these experienced godparents for Quinn. With a family so large she's going to need lots of prayers to stay sane in the midst of it all.
Julie is Denis' cousin, and her mother is Denis' godmother. (What a fun connection in addition to being family.)
I think most of you know, but just in case you don't, the handsome fella we chose to be godfather is my forever devoted brother.
We feel so blessed to have such an amazing family devoted to prayer and ready to guide/push our little one into the arms of Jesus throughout her life.

Here is the maker and the wearer of this beautiful baptismal gown that's been passed down for years.
My mother never disappoints. Here's another fantastic cake in the books!
Once again, my mother ROCKS! We sent her a picture earlier in the week of Etta wearing this kitty cat apron. She showed up to the party with a birthday cake to match!
...and we ended with party animals.
