Emma's Baptism Weekend
Yesterday (9.10.16) we went to Tommy's parents to celebrate Aunt Marsha and Tom's birthdays since Beth and Danny were coming in town for the baptism today and SURPRISE we also got to celebrate Beth and Danny's engagement! We are so excited for them!
Today was Emma's Baptism (9.11.16) at our church, Peachtree Presbyterian. It was a wonderful morning celebrating our beautiful Emma. Peachtree will always hold such a special place in our lives no matter where we live or what church we attend because we got married there and now Emma was baptized there. She did great minus the little mishap of spitting up while Chuck Roberts was holding her up speaking to her about her name (cue mother embarrassment!). We were surrounded by both our families and some of our closest friends. Emma is one loved little lady!
Following the service we came back to our house for a brunch. Emma was given some very special gifts to commemorate this day. We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love Emma as much as we do.

This is Emma's great great grandmother's wedding ring (on Tommy's side). Very special gift and oh so beautiful!
This weekend was very special. There is nothing better than being surrounded by all the people you love most. We are truly blessed. The verse we chose for the church bulletin today was: Proverbs 3:5-6 "trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."
Emma Claire our wish for your life is that you will know the love of Jesus and you will follow his way through all your life. We hope you know how much love you are surrounded by and how many people care for you.
We love you sweet girl! God bless your life, Emma!
