big day.

eliza had a big day yesterday. she became a baptized child of God!

it was beautiful. she wore a gown made by her great aunt steph, and a bonnet topped her head that great aunt susie gave her. one day she can cut the strings on it and it will turn into a hankie for her wedding day. just like me.

21 family members came down from indiana to help welcome her to God's family. it was a great weekend! we cannot thank everyone enough for all the help and love they gave. we are so blessed! very excited to watch her grow in Him.

here is the start to that life...
