Last Sunday was a ridiculously hectic day for my family and for my friends. My sister and I had a joint baptism at church for our babies. Noah was dressed in the white baptism outfit my brothers wore and Quorra had on the white gown both my sister and I wore for our baptisms that my grandmother hand made.
The ceremony was short and sweet. I'm so glad we had Noah baptized... even if the pastor did forget my name. I mean... I've only been a member and have attended church there for 12 years. Whatevs.
Okay, so this isn't the most flattering pic of me. And Mr. Noah. But it's the only one of both sets of grandparents, so we'll take it. :)
And of course we had to get a picture of my sister, her husband and their parents.
After church, my sister and I zipped across town as fast as we could so we could to attend our friend Angela's bridal shower! Her Maid of Honor Michelle organized a beautiful shower and I'm so happy for the bride-to-be. She deserves all the spoiling we could give her!

One of the many fun activities! We also played a trivia game and a word game.
Which I won. That's right.
Cute wine-stopper favors!
Even baby Quorra left the bride a sweet note!
Another favor: decorate your own wine glasses. Love this!
And where there are wine glasses, there is wine.
In this case, a nice bottle of "Bitch Bubbly"
And lastly, a group shot of our group of friends.
I'm loving that so many happy moments are happening with my friends! Babies, birthdays, and weddings are all cause for celebrations and the year is just brimming with exciting things. I can only hope this trend continues because there are a few of my loves that are in need of prayers. Not only my in-real-life friends but for some of my blogger/twitter pals and their families as well. While half of my friends are announcing pregnancies, engagements, new jobs and exciting moves to new places, the other half are going through some tough times.
I won't get into it but like I said, I wish nothing but good things on all of you! Whether your families are sick and need prayers or you're looking for guidance, just know that I'm thinking of you and sending you nothing but love. :)
Hmm. Okay, now that I've reread that - it sounds very vague but I just felt like I needed to put some good vibes out into the universe - let's hope it listens!
