Godmother Duties

A few months ago my brother and sister-in-law asked me to be the Godmother for their newest little addition. I was THRILLED! This past weekend was the baptism. Doesn't my little Amish niece look so cute in her gown and bonnet?!
My sister-in-law asked her brother to be the Godfather, and here we are before the ceremony, preparing for our duties.
This precious girl has the funniest facial expressions I've ever seen. When the holy water was poured over her head she started to wail! She has a good set of lungs, that's for sure.
And now presenting... Simba?
The ceremony was very nice - small and personal, with one other baby being baptized at the same time. The priest even involved the grandparents and great grandparents, which I thought was a nice touch.
And here's the happy family!
The happy family plus Godparents!
And what's a baptism without a cake?
I am so honoured to be this little one's Godmother! Thank you C&S for thinking of me! I promise to be the best Godmother around!


  1. Oh my gosh I love the cake!

    Congratulations one and all!

  2. That's why we chose you, 'cause you will be the best Godmother around :) Thanks for taking part!

  3. I know you will be the best Godmother around. She is one lucky little baby to have you as a Godmother and C & S as her parents.
