Leah did great! No tears, and she even gave some good smiles and clapped for everyone.

We were grateful that so much of our family could be with us for this special day.

    What a very special day! Her gown is gorgeous and so neat to have an heirloom to pass down in the family!

    What a very special day for all involved. I love the gown and the fact that it is a family heirloom. I had a baptismal gown made from my wedding dress train and all 3 of our children wore it for their baptism. I can only hope that children for generations to come in my family will wear it for their baptisms.
