Kate's sweet little foot.

Harry and Dad

Kate and her Dada

The water being poured over Kate. I did pull out her organza bow at the last minute. She did not utter one sound as the water was poured over her head.

  1. What great pictures. I had to take a double take at your church. It looks A LOT like the church Ryan and I attend. I could only tell the difference because our priest looks different. :)

    Wonderful family pictures.

  2. This was a BIG day for your family, and technically it was two separate events so it makes perfect sense to me that you've wanted to share photos. Did you see how many times I mentioned my Disneyland trip? You had to include photos of the baptism, that gorgeous dress, Kate, Kate's foot, Kate's wardrobe change, and all your family & friends. (and if it makes you feel any better I posted a new and revised Disneyland video).

    Let me know if you had any problems with the attached background photos that I emailed you. Since I'm on a mac now I'm nervous sending things.


  3. And I changed my blog to I figured since I only have one fan (you) that now would be the time to do it. Technically, a mocha isn't an ice blended and the name just wasn't working for me.

  4. Those photos are so precious! She just looks so happy!

  5. Everyone looks happy and relaxed! Wonderful family memeories!

  6. What wonderful pictures! Kate Emerson is so beautiful and your whole family is just glowing.


  7. What a beautiful day you had! I am sure all of your family fell in love with her. She is just a little doll! Love all of the pictures, my motto is you can never take too many! Leslie

  8. The pictures were all beautiful! So happy you shared them.

  9. I love all of the pictures... your family is so beautiful. I love the photo of Kate's little foot and the one of Harry and Dad.... priceless...
    Can't wait to meet you in Hilton Head.

  10. I love the picture with her holding out her hand to Jesus and the one of her little foot! Beautiful - we have not had Hannah dedicated yet, but plan to in the fall. Hope you are having a ball in Texas! Enjoy old friends and making new memories.
    Blessings, The Beals
