Harper's Baptism

This past weekend we celebrated Harper Elaine's baptism. We were looking forward to the day, but had not expected to have as much fun as we did! We had family and friends with us in church and Harper did great, even when she was woken up by having water poured on her head. She just looked around at everyone and let the pastor walk her down the aisle with a wet head of hair! Two of my cousins had made the long journey to Rochester and joined us in church with their parents. The pastor included them in the service and they presented Harper with a fish necklace and a crib cross, which made the service even more meaningful.
   After the service, we went to our dear friend Marsha's house and had lunch. It was a wonderful afternoon with wonderful people.

Harper is the third generation of Peterson babies to wear this baptism dress.

Hy-Vee Barlows did another amazing job!

This is the box cover to Harper's baptism dress. On the cover, Grandma has written the names and dates of the babies that have worn the dress. It is over 50 years old and in great shape!

Taking a nap with her godmother (yes, we did have several outfit changes throughout the day, I'll spare you the details of why)
All in all it was the perfect day!
