A few shots from the big day!

Tuesday, June 5, 2007

Just before the Baptism. The beautiful ballet slippers came off right after this photo and would not stay on after that.

Kate admiring her beautiful (inside and out) Godmother, Staci. Staci is an incredibly sweet and giving person. We are Godparents to one of her four children. I am blessed to have her friendship in my life.

When the priest put his hand up to bless Kate, she raised her hand up to God. This was the BEST moment of the Baptism.

Our family and Staci after the ceremony.

Will chose to wear the traditional Chinese silk outfit that was custom made for him when he went to meet Kate.

Kissy face birthday kiss!

My wonderful friend, Elissa took so many photos and I was dying to get some to bring on a trip. So, she sent me a "Sneak Peek." However, there are many more that I have not seen yet. I just thought I would post a few. There are more coming of family and friends and the party! Thank you so much Elissa. You are a GREAT friend and I appreciate everything you do for me:)
Oh one more thing...Kate fell and really bruised her face just a day or two before the Baptism/Birthday. I panicked and then put Arnica on it and it REALLY helped the bruising. Just thought I would pass that along to the other Moms who read this because those things always happen at the most inopportune times.


  1. OMG. She is beautiful! I love the cake, the kissy face, the dress... Awww, it's all so beautiful. Congrats to you and your wonderful family.


  2. Kim,
    I couldn't wait to see the pictures so thank you for posting as soon as you could. They are absolutely beautiful!! Seeing Kate in her baptismal gown brings back such special memories of Mylee's baptism. You've inspired me to post our memories of Mylee's 1st birthday and baptism on our blog since I started the blog after these very special events.

    What a special family you are and may God continue to bless you all.
