Ella was welcomed into the Catholic Church on Sunday, July 11th at her Baptism. She wore the same gown I wore for my Baptism. She wore the knee-highs and white shoes that are stitched with a cross that Carter wore for his Baptism. She was glowing and beautiful! She was so happy. We chose my brothers. Ryan and Kyle and Ryan (my husband's) sister, Stacy to be Ella's God Parents. Thanks to them for loving her as much as we do!
She fell asleep in her gown in the car seat on the way home. (About a 3 minute drive!) The headband she is wearing Ryan's mom found. It had a special saying with that that said that on Ella's wedding day, it will become her garter! HOW COOL!! She was also wearing a teeny, tiny pearl and crystal bracelet.

The cake was DELICIOUS!! It was made by a HTS mother that has started a cake business.

Ella and her special Aunt Jenn (my brother Ryan's wife)
Grandma Ruthann with Caden and Ella. It was Caden's first trip to KC--I know there will be
lots more to come!
My special Girl with the matching bonnet that I wore....she is so special!

Ella received this special sheep and pink Rosary from her Aunt Patrice (my mom's sister), Uncle Robert, Natalie and Ashley. They live in San Antonio. I am so glad they were in town and able to celebrate with us!!We had so much fun with them while they were in town.

It was a wonderful celebration! Deacon Clayton performed the sacrament. It was his first Baptism that he performed-ever. He will be ordained as a Priest next May. It was a special day for him, too.

Thanks to all our family and friends who joined us on this special day. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and celebratory wishes!! We are truly blessed to have Ella in our lives.
