My granddaughter, Julianna, turned eight and was baptized as a member of The Church of Latter-day Saints during our last visit to Arizona.
It was a special day which she had been looking forward to for some time.
She had many of her friends and family come to support her including this "best" friend.
I love being present for the baptisms of my grandchildren. It is a truly special time.
I have made baptism day dresses for four of my granddaughters so far.
Grandpa Glen was also happy for his Julianna.
Grand parenting is an amazing adventure.
Julianna with her sweet mother, Susan.
It was a special day for Julianna and her family.
Both sets of grandparents had traveled far to share her day.
And they were not the only ones. It worked out well that Rachel's wedding and Julianna's baptism were on the same weekend.
Here are some closeups of her dress. I added a jacket because it would be December. On Friday at the wedding, it was 75 + degrees. After a big wind Friday night, it was a chilly Saturday at 55 degrees. I was glad that I had included the jacket.
Embroidery on the jacket.
Each baptism dress is white and has smocking details with a bit of color.
The smocking was made with the same colors as the embroidery on the jacket.
Crystal buttons on the back and a back buttoned belt. She seemed to really like her dress and I was happy to make it for her. It was a great day Julianna!
